I love 9. It’s definitely my type of film. 9 is an action packed, well written, visually amazing, dramatic, and absolutely brilliant sci-fi film. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic environment, where machines live their lives after destroying all of humanity. No, there aren’t any human survivors; no, the human race doesn’t begin to exist again; yes, we made a big mistake and we couldn’t fix it. But, what does live on earth and stops the machines? Animated rag-dolls, each with their own personality and set of skills useful to survive. Life must go on; that doesn’t mean human life must go on.
There are two things that make 9 such a great movie. The first is that it’s unique. Yes, it takes ideas that have been used before, such as evil machines and the destruction of humanity, but 9 is it’s own thing. It has it’s own take on what would happen in it’s setting, it has it’s own story, and it’s definitely creative. That earned my respect. The second thing that makes 9 great is it’s characters. The characters are all very believable, very different, and you get to connect with them, even in such a short amount of time. The movie is an hour, but you really live through the story and get all your important details. 9 is also action packed and looks awesome, enough to please most people.
So, when it comes out on 9-9-09, go see 9. 9 is a great movie that’s good for adults and kids. Action loving boys and girls will have an amazing time. There’s also one more thing I have to say.… NO LOVE STORY! Yay! Some things just get old.
And don’t get 9 confused with “Nine” or “D-9”.
