It’s plain vanilla plot for Hollywood adventure thrillers but with the backdrop of beautiful and creative animation it’s worthy enough to watch at least once. 9 is cute rag doll and when he opens his eyes the humanity becomes extinct due to some apocalypse. Soon he discovers his other buddies and together they learn that it is an outcome of human folly- a machine they created to annihilate their enemies. Next is one hour fifteen minutes of pure entertainment with running thrill, action and adventure. Writer, Director Shane Acker is one of the visual effects wizards behind spectacular ‘Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’. What I would like to praise about the film the most is his creativity in presenting the world of darkness through stunning visuals. Although this is his first full length animation film, I’m surely looking forward for his next.
It won’t disappoint you if you’re not comparing it too much.
