film review: 9

Although the marketing for 9 ranked only marginally above well-kept secret, trailers and the odd radar blips on various websites sparked the imagination. 9 looked absolutely stunning. It’s not unreasonable, then, for expectations to creep up just a little…stunning visuals, stunning story, right?

Of course not. For all of 9’s muscular visuals and intriguing premise, the film joins the ranks of other works that fit under the heading “pretty faces mask empty masks.” A bit harsh, though, since the film is enjoyable beyond the drop-dead gorgeousness of the animation. All this and more at TFPO.

Entertainment: * (out of two)
