Audience Reviews for 9 Souls

Pure Asian Trash, If your into having sex with animals this movie is right up your alley. Again TRASH TRASH TRASH. I would give it No Stars. But not sure it would show up on flixster. Had to shut off after 34 Min just wasn't something that I would enjoy watching. 0 Stars from me for the movie, 1/2 star for my time.

Very entertaining, but kind of hard to comment on. I liked the style of filming, and how the characters are portrayed. Pretty difficult to get close to if you have 9 main characters, but it worked somehow.
I guess it's about taking control of your own life and consequently your own death, about seeking what you deserve and bearing the consequences. Only then are you really free.

Toyoda is a visual director in the most absolute way possible, and with 9 Souls he sets out to prove that to the world. I was completely thrown by the imagination and photography. It's a hard film to gauge just because there's so much substance underneath the ordinary. It's violent, subversive, poetic, touching and awesome. Too many superlatives?

Still, the script and the characters are second to none, in regards to this film. With an almost comedic first half in introducing characters, the second half shows real human drama and although it's not an especially violent film, the few moments of action can be quite disturbing. Every fan of asian film should seek it out.

9 Japanese prisoners escape and go on the run in a hijacked red van. Very entertaining, though i had problems keeping track of all 9, they did run around so.
