It's a Polanski movie with a Polanski ending. You either like it or you don't.

A ridiculous film that increases the silliness with each frame. The more subtle thriller parts are intense and interesting, but once the film becomes a supernatural conspiracy, the overacting and goofiness begins.

Great movie all the way to the end, but then it became rather silly and out of place. Which was a bit of a shame. enjoyed it overall though.

I'm amazed at how good this movie is. I get wrapped into it each time (just twice). Which is weird. Because considering the subject matter I wouldn't expect to like it.

Fun concept, ok execution

I like the concept of this movie a lot. Searching for the book of the devil — count me in! I just felt the overall execution was a little tame. The “suspense” scenes weren’t really all that suspenseful. The way they staged some of the “action” scenes were just kind of awkward. And the pacing in the 3rd act was weird. Never seen to really hit that final stride like most thrillers do. The very very end though was pretty interesting imo.

There was a nice element of mystery throughout though and I enjoyed the book comparing scenes. It’s fun investigating with the lead character. But overall it just felt a little too tame. Felt like Johnny Depp’s character could have had more of an arc. Depp realllllly underplays it. Maybe too much so imo.

Still enjoyed the ride but just wish it was more...

Satan

Our Daily Free Stream: Roman Polanski - The Ninth Gate. Our Daily Free Stream: Roman Polanski - The Ninth Gate. Polanskis The Ninth Gate eröffnet mit einer spektakulären Titel-Sequenz und flacht dann langsam ab. Ganz allmählich, so dass es in der ersten Stunde noch Hoffnung gibt. The Ninth Gate bietet viele gute Ansätze und ich hoffte inständig, Polanski möge seinem Okkultismus Thriller noch Leben einhauchen. Nach der letzten Szene aber liess mich das Werk staunend zurück: Wirklich?!? Johnny Depp spielt Dean Corso, einen Raritäten-Buchhändler. Depp wirkt merkwürdig teilnahmslos und unentschlossen. Angeheuert wird er von Boris Balkan (Frank Langella), der auf der Suche ist nach einem verschwundenen Exemplar des 1666 in Venedig gefertigtem Buch The Ninth Gate. Verfasst wurde es von Aristide...
