Adventure, Animated, Fantasy, Science fiction, War
In an alternate-reality 1949, Nazi robots have destroyed humanity, and the only remaining source of cuteness comes in the form of nine tiny knit puppets. Together, they fight evil mechanized skeletons and a dopey backstory that sounds like something Martin Heidegger would come up with if he was tripping in a room full of Hello Kitty products. 9 is not the worst movie of the summer, but it’s not really worth running out and seeing, unless you’re a sucker for steam-punk imagery and slick 3-D animation. But if that’s the case, you’re probably busy repairing your time machine so you can go back to 1998, when that stuff was still vaguely cool. Have fun with that.

The Coast Halifax 9 9 is always interesting to look at, but hard to understand by Hillary Titley 09/10/2009
Colorado Springs Independent Wrong number 9 is not cute, and not a comedy. It is full of mood, texture, technically sophisticated chase scenes and not much else. by Jonathan Kiefer 09/03/2009
Charleston City Paper Shane Acker's 9 is a technical achievement with a so-so story Once upon a time, if you saw a short film, you saw the work of someone who wanted to make a short film. Nowadays, that ain't necessarily so. by Scott Renshaw 09/09/2009
