9 (PG-13)

   Regina  Review by:  Regina

Title:  9

Featuring the voice talents of Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly and Crispin Glover

Collection:  Movies

Another post apocalyptic video with dark overtones, but unusual, not in the sense of machine against man, but in the life that continues after man is gone from this planet. The same scientist who creates the destructive large “Brain” robot machine, also creates 9 small, adorable rag/burlap doll-like robots and infuses them with his soul, in hopes that they will save the world. Each doll, numbered on the back, one being the oldest and nine being the scientist’s most recent creation, stand for a different part of the soul – fear, courage, etc. There are the usual fight/clash scenes between the Brain and his smaller army of machines and the dolls, but the animation is wonderful, and I found myself rooting out loud for our tiny heroes!

I viewed this DVD on my computer and 24” wide-screen monitor. It would be terrific viewed on a large flat screen TV.
