Cast / crew
Small sack-man 9 is born into a desolated world where men fought machines and neither side won. He runs into others like him but a little semi-spherical gizmo he’s brought with him is going to change the world forever. Whether he meant to or not.
SPOILER In order for 9 to make sense, all nine sack-people needed to be absorbed into the machine. They didn’t and so it doesn’t. So, the story’s broken, what does that leave? It leaves an exciting, involving, pacy action adventure that has a memorable visual aesthetic. It’s also highly unusual for an animated film in that it has the tone of a summer action blockbuster instead of a Disney / Pixar experience. It’s definitely worth seeing. I would even go as far as to say it was a good movie. But it could have been so much more.
This movie contains magnet abuse (!) and violence, scary scenes, unpleasant scenes, suicide scene.
