Mystery thriller set in an existential universe, in which Ryan Reynolds plays three parts: a troubled Hollywood actor, a television show runner, and an acclaimed videogame designer - all of whom find their lives intertwining in mysterious and unsettling ways.

Wow. If nothing else, this movie is a poke in the eye for all those people who thought that Ryan Reynolds was limited to teen movies with beer, goofy jokes and semi-naked girls. Reynolds is brilliant in the starring role in this original film that combines three "stories" linked by the same actors playing different characters (or are they the same characters? Who knows?). Melissa McCarthy is also exceptional, and her character in the first story is one of the best performances I've seen in a long time.

Of the three parts, as other people have said, the first story "The Prisoner" stands out head and shoulders above the rest. The actors all put in amazing performances, and the film skips easily between comedy, drama and the surreal (like characters bursting into musical numbers a la David Lynch). This could easily have been made into a film of its own, and would have been a winner at that.

The second part is cleverly written so you begin to see the overlaps with the first, but nothing is obvious. However, you feel that this was written around those overlaps, rather than being "coincidence" and so the story is thin and contrived. The third section is in some respects the key, but I found by far the weakest of the three. I was trying to work out the link to tie the movie together and didn't really care about the characters. It wasn't that the acting wasn't great, but I was too wrapped up in the film as a whole to pay much attention.

All in all, I would say a great movie, that doesn't really fall into the sci-fi/fantasy genre, but I think this is the audience that it would appeal to most. Also, fans of David Lynch and people who enjoyed Stranger Than Fiction a couple of years ago. Sort of Donny Darko-lite.

So why four stars and not five?

Didn't have this one pegged as a Friday night wind-down film but I really enjoyed it. No need to recap the plot, it's just simpler if I enclose an easy "is it for you guide?":

1. Did you enjoy Donnie Darko, Memento and other non-linear films? Then you should be OK with this.
2. Do you enjoy picking the bones out of unusual plotlines where you are presented with alternate realities? If so, go ahead.

This is a very subtle, understated metaphysical gem. Like the aforementioned films, I am unlikely to ever watch it again, but that's just the nature of this sub-genre and not a criticism that the film is lacking in any way. I think it's a bit of an overstatement to say this movie will blow you away but there is no doubt that it is unique. The acting is spot on - totally credible and engaging. The dialogue is crisp and drives the film along nicely. The soundtrack is also excellent and completes the whole package of this relatively unknown treat.

Format: DVD
Ryan Reynolds plays three different roles in this braintwister of a movie: a tv star under house arrest, a writer with a new TV series, and a developer of computer games/family man.

The TV star is in a downward spiral, going mad in the empty house, despite the "help" from the next door hottie and his publicist, who moves in to babysit.

The writer of the new TV series is weaving in and out of the studio maze, hoping to get his show on the air with his friend, Melissa McCarthy as the star.

The game-developer/family man is in the woods with his family and finds the battery of the car dead. He then goes in search of cell reception or help.

The three scenerios are played out with their small overlapping features, just as a post-it on the kitchen counter, which says "Watch for the nines" and the mother and daughter of the 3rd scenerio, being part of the TV series of the 2nd scenerio.

"The Nines" is very intricate with an enormous risk that it will fall, but it doesn't. "The Nines" is held together by the admirable acting of Ryan Reynolds and Melissa McCarthy. Hope Davis on the other hand isn't really believable in any of her parts in the three scenerios.

During the movie, I thought of "Second Life", but that isn't quite the answer here, and I should say, that "the answer" isn't spelled out for kindergarteners, there is room for speculation, which I enjoy.

"The Nines" isn't a pure entertainmnt movie. You simply cannot help trying to make the puzzle pieces fit together - and that fact (plus the marvellous acting) is "The Nines" forte.

Louise.

This is a very strange film but wholly fascinating. I certainly wasn't bored. Ryan Reynolds gives an excellent performance as a man living 3 different lives. however, in each of the lives the same characters keep appearing, but in different roles. In each of his incarnations he appears unaware of his other lives, although he is given clues by the other characters and is aware that something is not quite right. There are moments of comedy in this film (which Reynolds does really well) and some bittersweet. A good film with an interesting twist. Definitely worth a look.

An intriguing film this, and one that grows more surreal as it goes on. Ryan Reynolds is excellent as the central character in three intertwined stories, displaying a hitherto untapped seam of chameleonic character acting which underpins the whole movie. Fans of serials such as Lost: The Complete Seasons 1-6 [Blu-ray] will appreciate the dreamlike style and sheer randomness of the film, but unfortunately it ends with something of a whimper - hardly surprising as the storyline is so ambitious.
