Import Blu-ray with foreign language cover and english 5.1 HD Master audio - Synopsis:A masked gunman is on the prowl, kidnapping seemingly random victims without hesitation or remorse. The police are helpless and baffled by the kidnapper's motive even as one of their own detectives falls victim to the one-man crime-wave. The true number of kidnapped victims and the assailant's motive comes to a haunting reality when nine strangers find themselves handcuffed to nine separate poles in a bunker built by the masked gunman who is hell bent on revenge. But the gun in his hand and the threat of death are just tools in his forced act of attrition. If the Gunman is going to succeed, he needs someone to live. "I have brought the nine of you here for a reason. Your survival depends on you figuring out what that reason is. I will leave you alone for you discussions but i will return over ten minutes and kill one of you until you figure out why I have brought you here, or until you are all dead." And with his single deadly statement, the gunman closes the bunker door, leaving the nine stranger scared, desperate and unsure of who will be the first one killed or if any will live. They confess their worst crimes, sins and innermost fears hoping to find the connection that will keep them alive. As each ten-minute period expires, the gunman re-enters the bunker and asks his one simple question. "Why are you here?" If they don't have every piece of his twisted puzzle a single gunshot kills one of the nine resetting the clock giving survivors another chance to uncover the gunman's truth. Criminals, everyday citizens, a cop, a lawyer and a priest have all been extracted from their lives and thrust into a world of betrayal, deceit and murder. Unsure who to trust and what to believe, the nine must rely on each other before the clock on the next victims life runs down to zero.

2.0 out of 5 stars Every Ten Minutes One Must Die 23 Feb 2011
By Drew
Format:DVD
The main problem with Nine Dead is the lack of tension throughout, for what could have been an exciting premise; someone dies every 10 minutes until they either work out why they are where they are or they are all dead is pitched completely wrong. Instead of focusing on the job in hand the useless 9 captives stand around moaning and bitching at one another and when indeed the masked man comes in and shoots one of them they decide to bitch some more. There is no sense of panic, no suspense and no apparent urge to get to the bottom of why they are there instead mini revelations are spat out which I presume were included to 'flesh' out the characters and give them some depth but in doing so it takes the focus away from what the film should have been about. Getting the 9 together was rushed and defied belief anyway and there were huge plot-holes throughout the film which became _very_ annoying. The ending is one of the very worst I have ever seen in any film and is a ridiculous anti-climax from the events which preceded it, the film could never have been played to test audiences to get their reactions as why it ends the way it does truly is inexplicable and not worth the 80-odd minutes you have to sit through to get there.

The only positive thing I can find to say about the film is the reason behind how the 9 chosen are linked and who they actually are, this is quite clever I must admit and once they get round to trying to figure out what they have in common and put the pieces of the puzzle together then the reason is quite inventive. However it takes so long to actually get to the point that over half of them have been shot and by then I had lost the will to live anyway so didn't particularly care anymore.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Film that runs out of steam. 5 Aug 2011
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a film in the style of `Saw'; it opens with a guy in a rubber mask preparing a room for its new job of being a cell. He then goes about kidnapping nine people. The police are alerted and so is the LA media; however they continue till he has all of them.

They then find themselves hand cuffed to poles in this cell. He enters and tells them the rules. They must all work out why they are all there and what they have done to deserve to die. He will kill one of them every ten minutes until they either work out what they have done, or they are all dead.

There is a digital clock in the wall which is used through out to keep the tension going. They are a mixed bunch including an insurance salesman, a cop, an assistant district attorney, a priest and a strip club owner. As they start to confess their past indiscretions, they disclose more about themselves, and some of their stories are told in flash back.

Their captor has that deep semi sinister voice which is de rigueur in all of these types of films. There are pretty good performances by all involved and there are some clever plot twists. However the ending is left hanging, almost like they ran out of money, time or ideas and that is where it loses its stars. Despite a good if not original idea, some excellent acting and a good musical score, this has been let down right at the end, Chris Shadley has done a fairly good job at directing as this is a two hour film and holds your attention throughout, however if the final destination is a bit disappointing, it ultimately takes something away from the journey too. If the `Saw' genre of films is your thing, this should be one for you, but it is no way near as gorey as this is much more of a psychological thriller than horror.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD THRILLER WITH SUSPENSE *HAS SPOILERS* 20 Jan 2011
By rc
Format:DVD
although this sort of storyline has been done many times it was an overall good thriller,
9 people are kidnapped and locked in a room and the masked kidnapper tells them they have to figure out how they are all connected and why they were there,
he would then come back every ten minutes and if they hadnt figured it out then someone would die.
from the start they had a basic idea and it built from there so it didnt really have any great twists or surprises.
the characters were a mixture, most of them pretty horrible but being in that sort of situation they were kind of likable, not the sort of people you would ever be friends with but they didnt pretend to be anything that they were not, most of them did deserve their punishment.
Only one character was absolutely vile and proved in the film to be worse than all of them put together even though they were not the most obvious evil out of them all, you will see this by the end of the film.
there was some bad taste humour in it when they were arguing with each other which in the intensity of the film was quite funny at parts.
The only thing i noticed that was maybe wrong is that the killer although masked didnt have a really evil presence, his eyes just looked sad so you guessed really from the start that it was revenge/making people see what they had done killings.
Although you would think there cant be much of a storyline when it is based in one room i really enjoyed it although again like other
similar films made it will never be as good and original as the 1st saw movie.
the ending i absolutely hated and it disapointed me but i suposse it is more realistic than the typical happy ending you usually get on films,
this film is well worth a watch.
