What Culture

A potent reminder that not all shorts, even ones as brilliant as Acker's, will necessarily work well as a feature.

Feels unnaturally fleshed out and overthought, dampening the excitement through extensive padding...captivating eye candy, but something of a dramatic spinout.

A throwback to the industrial era, the film doesn't feel as important now as it might have then.

Window to the Movies

Proudly mature -- the movie deals much with individual death as well as doomsday -- so it's a welcome work, something we might even dare to call American-style anime.

This movie is what would happen if the folks at Pixar were manic depressives . . .

I think if I were not diligently taking notes for this very review I might have folded laundry or something to pass the time... It's a beautiful movie to look at and a clumsy story with a weird ending.

Totally lacking in character development. It is like seeing a love story involving toasters.

There is a lot that is interesting to see in the world created by Shane Acker but not enough to make the feature film satisfying.

Watch it for the visuals, and dream about what Shane Acker might accomplish with a better screenplay.

If ever there was a greater pity that a film wasn't exhibited in 3-D, I wouldn't know it. Acker's fluid direction and striking visual style would seem to welcome such an embellishment.

Substance abuse might improve the experience, but alas, 9 unto itself is only half-baked.

The characters are sketchy and the story makes little sense.

Well-designed but formulaic survival tale.

The interplay between characters is often electric and fans of the film will definitely find a character they can root for in the mix...

Grown from a superb 10-minute animation, this feature length version runs out of steam despite its stunning visual design.

Gorgeously animated, beautifully executed and incredibly imaginative, Shane Acker's 9 manages to nonetheless feel a little bit like something you've seen before.
