9 has a very Coraline-esque tone to it, so if that's a film you enjoyed, then this movie is definitely something worth checking out on the big screen.

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

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.

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

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

Looking like a rag-doll version of Terminator Salvation, the film boasts an arresting visual style.

It's frustratingly imperfect -- but you won't regret seeing it.

While it must be said that dialogue and storytelling flow are not Acker's strong suits, the immersive power of his imagery is undeniable.

With animation increasingly the exclusive domain of the Pixars and DreamWorks, fresh talent following in the footsteps of Tim Burton and Henry Selick is a welcome tangent.

Visually impressive, symbolic and mostly entertaining.

Visually striking...[but] it feels as if Acker was pressured into making a money-making thrill ride instead of a mind-mulling sci-fi.
| Original Score: 3/5

...a mesmerizing combination of The Terminator, The Matrix and Pinocchio.

More like an animation showcase of wonders than a genuine cinematic story
