9 (5/5)

I recently picked up 9, knowing nothing about it except for the fact that Tim Burton was involved somehow.  Later, I learned that 9 started out as a short film by a film student named Shane Acker.  His short was so good, it recived a nomination for an acadamy award, and he was later given the opportunity to turn it into a full-fledged feature.

9 is a unique film.  Its setting is a post apyctolptic world inhabited by 9 living rag-dolls.  The setting is as breathtaking as it is original.  The 9 characters each have their own distinct and memorable personalities.  While there is dialoge, it is kept to a minimum(the short had no voice acting); yet the character’s thoughs and feelings are perfectly clear.

There are also a surprising amount of action scenes, all of which are exciting and fun to watch.

The story is amazing, and the film really pulls you in.  I can’t really explain it well enough…

so I think the best solution is to show you the original short so that you may see a small sample of the epicness that 9 has to offer.

Overall, I would reccomend this film to anyone.
