Reviews

An action-packed adventure, director Shane Acker’s animated fantasy epic 9 is the feature-length expansion of his Academy Award-nominated 2004 short film of the same name. The screenplay for the feature is by Pamela Pettler (Monster House); directors Tim Burton (Beetlejuice) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) are producing .Set in the near future. The world’s machines have turned on mankind and sparked social unrest - decimating the human population. But as our world falls to pieces, a mission begins to salvage the legacy of civilization, and a group of small “stitchpunk” creations is given the spark of life by a scientist - and they successfully survive the apocalypse! With their group being so small, these creatures must summon individual strengths well beyond their own proportions in order to outwit and fight against the still-functioning monster machines. 9 dynamically explores the will to live and how one soul can change the world.

Considering this was a independent low budget animated film of the highest quality and is Shane's first featuer film direction it makes all those big studio productions some what embarrassing, The Animation alone is fascinating.

It's a simple story, with not a huge amount of character development but then theres a reason for it as theses dolls make up part of the scientists soul. Theres so much attention to details theres enough to keep coming back for several viewings.
And it has a fantastic ending leaving you full of wonder and mystery.

Two things wrong, First is a bit too short, while it's not worth adding stuff for the sake of it i felt it needed just a little bit more time to push the story a bit, build up more tension and learn a bit more about our hero's. The other thing it film can't decide if it wants to be mature and appeal to adults or Teens. It kinda stuck in between swinging form one to the other but it was grand effort to try and make a modern CG film with a bit more punch and seriousness.
Nice soundtrack too.

Rating should be 4.5 but I'll add the extra half for DVD content. :)

Mankind has pursued technology too far and been destroyed by it. Again. A small group of resistance fighters carry the hopes of all mankind. Again. But this time mankind is represented by 9 small stitched toys.

This is one of those films that will divide opinion. It looks fantastic. Imagine a story drawn lovingly frame by frame by French graphic artist Moebius and then pulled together as a movie by Delicatessen era Jean-Pierre Jeunet and you will begin to picture how this film looks (tonally I was reminded of Delicatessen and Alien Resurrection a number of times). There is so much attention to detail, like the dust motes floating in the scene where 9 first wakes up, and the tooling scratches on the brass tools used by the inventor. Stitchpunk, the style has been called but that's the characters; their world is very much steampunk.

So far, so good. If, like me, you can drool over the visuals, that might be enough for you. In terms of storytelling, the assistance of producers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov retain a cinematic style that keeps the interest and there are genuinely atmospheric moments. The problem is that the story is a familiar one (as per the opening paragraph of this review), the only difference being the graphic style and the unusual characters. I watched 'Up' only a few days ago and had completely the opposite experience: I was moved by the story and stopped noticing the visuals after a few minutes. During '9' I admired the visuals without becoming lost in the story.

This is not a film for small children but given some of the dark stuff on the Cartoon Network nowadays, 7 and upwards I would expect to enjoy it.

The limited edition comes in a hardback book. Not with a book, in the book!

but only if you like "different" movies
and that means "nine" is very special.

The atmosphere of the movie may looks dark and sad
and the story may appeal slightly predictable but
that only invites you to look "behind the scenes"
and there is plenty to discover.

So what's special about "nine"?

1) It deals with life after human extinction
2) It deals with hope in a hopeless time
3) It deals with taking action despite all fears

It is a masterpiece of art and that's properly
the main reason for the very short time "nine" has spend
in European cinemas.

Format: Blu-ray
In Holland 9 (nine) is already available on blu ray, and what a beautiful blu ray it is !

This CGI film is stunning with magnificent views of a completely destroyed city in which the story of 9 takes place. Nine (a doll) awakes with no memory at all in an abandond house. There are no people any more, actually there is no life at all. No animals, no plants, not even bacteria... nothing. Then 9 meets 2 and the story really kicks off when they meet a mechanical monster that takes 2 prisoner. Then 9 meets other dolls with numbers on their back. Together with 5 he starts a rescue attempt to save 2. Everything goes horribly wrong though and although they slay the mechanical monster, and meet a few other dolls, a new more powerfull monster comes to life and steals the soul of 2. All this happens in the first 15/20 minutes of the film. Of course I could tell you the rest of the story, but to my opinion that would spoil the fun.

The film lookes like a stop-motion film, but is CGI. The original 9 (a nine minutes short film that was nominated for an oscar) is on the disc too and that one is stop-motion. It's very nice to compare the two films. Some people said that the original short is beter, but I don't think so. It's an excellent short film, but it ask more questions than it answers. Especially the end is much clearer in the film than in the short, although it's the same in both. There is also one big difference between the two films. In the short, nobody says a word, in the long film version there are voices, the most beautiful one is from Christopher Plummer who is 1. Hobbit Elijah Wood is the youthfull 9 and the voice is spot on.
