Synopsis


9
Academy Award-nominated for his groundbreaking animated short of the same name, filmmaker Shane Acker makes his feature directorial debut with this expanded version of his acclaimed post-apocalyptic fable. In a world parallel to our own, the worst has happened, and humanity is in danger of extinction. From the ashes of destruction emerges a courageous rag doll named 9 (voice of Elijah Wood) whose unique leadership skills could prove the key to survival for those who have not yet perished. Perhaps with a little help from his friends, who include domineering war veteran 1 (voice of Christopher Plummer), aging inventor 2 (voice of Martin Landau), stout mechanic 5 (voice of John C. Reilly), visionary artist 6 (voice of Crispin Glover), and fearless warrior 7 (voice of Jennifer Connelly), 9 will prove capable of salvaging what still remains of this world, and laying the groundwork for a hopeful future. Produced by Tim Burton, Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch), and Jim Lemley (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), 9 takes viewers on a surrealistic journey into a world where anything is possible. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The plot is one of the best and worst things of the movie, you have little time to catch on what is going on and in the end you will leave thinking what really happened. I liked the movie, but it is not for everyone, 9 is an animated film by newcomer director by Shane Acker, but just because it's animated doesn't mean it's kid friendly. Some discretion is advised, specially for the youngest kids. The film in the end has excellent picture and makes you think a lot, good sound, specially if you see it on a home theater.

    I had never seen the movie before and bought it on Blu-ray simply because Tim Burton was written on the front and I have to say no objections here. Rated PG-13 seems to be where it should be some of the creatures and scenes might scare younger viewers. Other then that its a great movie, i believe the young and old will enjoy this Movie. Tim Burton A+

    I tend to love anything Tim Burton has a hand in it. I especially love his animated movies, this one is no exception. If you like Tim's style with animation and you like his other movies I think toy will like this one as well.

    The film looks great, but the story is rather predictable. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, man is dead but his creations -- these living dolls -- have inherited the planet. The question is, "Do they have a soul?"

    This was a movie I'd never heard of before. I bought it and am happy I did. It's got a great story and great animation. The voice actors are pretty well known too. It was well worth the price paid.

    May not be for everyone but I really liked it. The characters all have unique personality and it's one of the better apocalyptic movies, even if the cast are all burlap dolls.
