3D Animation in Post-apocalyptic, not for kids.

9 started off as a short film as a student project that was picked up and created into a longer film. I'm not going to explain about the plot because that can be easily found in the outline or other reviews.

If you enjoy 3D animations, post-apocalyptic worlds, emotional film, steampunk, watch it. The 3D animations were beautifully well-done. I have a degree in game art and understand the workings of how 3D animations works and textures (my expertise), and I was very impressed by this.

This is no means a kids movie. They won't understand nor have emotional attachment to the characters. it's a darker form of computer-animated film. Don't expect to laugh. There may be a few chuckles here and there.

This film did not win any major awards (was nominated though) or anything specia...

Unique and Dark

9 is not a casual film. This isn't the kind of movie where you invite a bunch of friends over, expecting an "awesome" movie. That's not to say it's a bad movie, it's quite good in fact. It's just not a typical film. It's bleak, it's eerie, and even the action, though strong, has a lot of symbolic meaning.

I don't often watch films like 9, nor do I want to. 9 offers only a few smiles, and no laughs. Rule #1 for me, it has to have humor. I don't mind serious films, but a little humor can go a long way in helping me remember the film, and enjoy it. 9 manages to entertain without laughs.

But 9 has a lot of emotion anyway. Fear certainly comes to mind, as does sadness. The PG-13 rating was not earned from language or sexual content. Part of it comes from the bloodless, yet intense viol...

9 Review

2009 has shown its fascination for the number 9 be it District 9 or this. As the title suggests, there are 9 main characters and this is the third theatrical computer animated film to be rated PG-13. With those factors in mind, you'd probably assume it's a computer animated film for adults considering the way it was advertised. Obviously when you see the advertisement in theaters, you'd assume this is the case. So you might be wondering, does this movie compare to other computer-animated films, well overall I can say it's an alright movie, but it doesn't compare to the greats, particularly this year's Up. Basically this is the story in a nutshell, machines have taken over the world and killed off humanity. However, a scientist has invested his soul into 9 sack boy like creatures with the ...

Make the Time for 9

The film 9 is something that's become a rare commodity lately: an original film. It's not a remake, not a sequel, not based of a comic book or TV show - it's entirely from the mind of Shane Acker. The story may take here and there from other sources, but the way it's presented is unique and interesting.

First off, the animation is simply amazing. The attention to detail - whether it's in the animated dolls or in the dessicated surroundings, is stunning. Pixar may still have an edge, but 9 gives them a run for their money. In my opinion the best designs are in the "evil" robots - a mix of machine and bones and junk that come together in a highly creepy and dangerous manner. Although 9 is animated, it is not for the youngest set. It has some unsettling images of dead bodies, war and the...
