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. :)

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.

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!

Format: Blu-ray
Some reviewers have criticised the lack of originality in the storyline of this film but I can remember my English teacher of 34 years ago saying that every story has already been written and its how they are presented that makes the difference. This is where 9 on blu-ray scores a ten for me, this is what your high defintion television was made for. Firstly it is presented in full screen so no irritating black bars to distract you and secondly this is animation of the highest quality, you may want to use this to demonstrate how good your tv really is. Witness the scene where 9 finds the body of his creator, every hair on his head stands out in crisp detail. This is not an animated film for children, the director does not draw the line at sacrificing his cute little creations and some of the scenes are quite scary for the younger child. Not only is the picture quality superb but it also has a dynamic soundtrack with strong low field effects that will give your subwoofer a work out and may wind up the neighbours if you watch it late at night. Definitely one for your collection.

I am sure that many of you have never even _heard_ of this movie, since IMHO it has been definitely overlooked, probably due to an insufficient distribution and its PG-13 classification (that deemed it unsuitable for little children, cutting its core audience, probably).

So, since this a kind of movie that might split the viewers among those that will definitely love it, and those that will probably hate it/ignore it, here is a quick way to know whteher this movie is for you:

If you are an unconditional fan of Blade Runner and The Matrix, if you are among those that appreciate the aestethics of Jeunet and Caro movies like Delicatessen or The City of Lost Children, if you think that Nightmare Before Christmas is a masterpiece of stop-motion animation, if you were awestruck by the bleak and amazing alternate world of Coraline, if you can accept/understand the metaphysical/animistic story in Final Fintasy: the Spirits Within, and - last but not least - if you miss those unbelievable, impossibile but utterly exciting CGI action scenes that used to be the staple of older, "traditional" CGI movies and shorts, especially those in the golden years of Pixar, well THIS MOVIE IS FOR YOU, DO NOT MISS IT!!

In other words, even if "9" depicts a dark, gloomy and apparently hopeless reality (which never gets tear-jerking, contrived or depressing, though), that has been shown countless times in other, more "mainstream" non-CGI movies, and even if you can easily find similarities with such other movies, _this is not the point at all_, and it would be a sterile nitpicking exercise, common to almost every movie in recent years.
