When rag doll 9 first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world where all humans are gone. It is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the newest member of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive and they will need to discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. The very future of civilization may depend on them.

9 is an underrated movie that I had the pleasure of watching when I was a child. The plot of the movie is heavy compared to other animated movies but it centers around a post-apocalyptic world in which humans have been killed by machines. The only intelligent and aware life is a few rag dolls that have been tasked with the goal of bringing back life and ending the robots rule. The movie scared me as a child specifically the robots that tried to attack the dolls. But even as a child I was immersed in the plot and the suspense that intense moments of silence made happen. I rate this movie 5/5 for managing to be scary and enjoyable for children with a good plot. I recommend this movie for anyone interested in films concerning apocalypse or suspense and mystery. @selfhelpguru of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This is a 2009 American adult computer animated post-apocalyptic science fantasy directed by Shane Acker.
Although superb is its animation with nice and sophisticated visuals, the story doesn't appear well-developed.
Actually the end isn't really its end, which is the starting point of the future the audience really would like to see after all the struggles.
In any case, the film looks visually spectacular.
However, the film seems long on imaginative design but less substantial in narrative.

CG garbage that's only worth the lowest rating possible.

Unmemorable is the word I would use to describe 9. I saw it in theatres several years back and it's as if I hadn't seen it at all. I remember not liking it. And looking back at what I wrote back then when it was fresh in my mind, I described the film as bleak and boring with no conclusion, as if the writers didn't know how to finish their own script. I don't intend to watch it again, so I suppose I don't recommend it.

When I saw the trailer for this, I knew I was going to be in for a ride. And wow, did I get what I asked for!
9 was a movie I've never watched before. It kept me asking questions, wondering what the characters were going to do and how all of this was tied to what happened to the world.
This movie was absolutely fabulous and I will definitely watch this again!

I've been waiting to watch it for quite some time, and when I did, it was much better than I expected.
The characters were beautifully developed and the story was intriguing.
I enjoyed this movie a TON!
5 stars.

It was pretty dark for me watching characters who I weirdly deeply cared about get their souls sucked out of them when I was a kid. 3 out of 5.

Scientist: We had such potential. Such promise. But we squandered our gifts, our intelligence. Our blind pursuit of technology only sped us quicker to our doom. Our world is ending. But life must go on.
