Default "9" Review

First of all, to all parents, do NOT go to this movie with kids <8. not because of sexual themes, not because of swearing, not even because of blood. The reason is, unlike advertised 100% in the trailers, this movie does extremely well in getting under your skin and making you as creeped out and disturbed as you can possibly be. On the other hand, this also a masterpiece that must be seen, as the execution of everything is done brilliantly. Even though it is an extremely creepy movie (and an extremely creepy robot/worm/doll death which I won't explain, you have to see it!) It also does well at placing bits and shreds of dark humor inbetween, to lighten up the mood a little. One great example is when the giant spider drone is chasing one of the sackboys stichpunks over a hill while "Somewhere over the rainbow" from wizard of Oz plays.

Anyways, I'll rate it 9.5/10 + movie of the year. the only thing I didn't like how 9 caught on to things before the audeice did.

I'll warn you again, don't go if you are easily scared.

Thanks for the warning, Kerma. I was thinking of going to see that movie, despite the somewhat creepy ads. I was impressed by the two directors, although the Russian guy was responsible for the rebarbative "Wanted", which was quite disturbing.

I don't like creepy things/movies, so I'm probably not going to see it. Thanks for the heads up.

You should still go, It's an amazing movie worth of praise.

Looking at who made it, I was expecting something creepy. Especially after seeing the short film it's based on.

Anyway, hopefully I can see this on Saturday... Hopefully....

I just saw 9, it was pretty good, but the story line moved kind of fast, a bit too fast. Although it was a good movie anyways.

@roland

During a period of economic decline, the government of a totalitarian state commissions scientists to research ways for the nation to prosper. One scientist develops an artificially intelligent brain, but before it can be properly tested, it is taken away by the government to build the Fabrication Machine, which is used to provide labor for the people and creates machines for war. Eventually the Fabrication Machine snaps under pressure and turns against humanity, programming its machines to eradicate all forms of life. During the chaos, the scientist who invented the machine's A.I. creates a mysterious talisman and a set of nine numbered ragdoll-like "stitchpunks," hoping they will preserve humanity's legacy and allow life to continue. He brings them to life by transferring his soul into each of them, and dies as soon as he gives life to the final stitchpunk, numbered "9."

I think this aptly describes this movie. I remember watching one part in particular and feeling like totally and absolutely creeped out, but in a good way. That's what made it really cool to watch though, at least 4me. I've always enjoyed Tim Burton's stuff, and this movie is no exception.

I was not very creeped out by this movie. I agree with the.

It was more action-y than I though it was going to be, there were some fun explosions, and I liked the ending.
I give this movie an A+ for Awesome+

I liked the gruesome dark humor inbedded in that movie, Like the way the Seamstress Died, and the Wizard of Oz part. I still stand by what I said.
