Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "9 is a brilliantly animated and welcome treat for moviegoers searching for adventure, inspiration and complete originality." - 08/19/2009 Box Office


"The visuals have been expanded and the characters have been given greater depth....The aesthetic wavelength of producer Tim Burton was clearly in sync with Acker's." - 09/01/2009 Film Comment


3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he best reason to see it is simply because of the creativity of its visuals. They're entrancing." - 09/09/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"The latest achievement in art direction with an end-of-humanity theme belongs to the CG-animated fantasy-adventure 9, a tale of trust, bravery, and cooperation..." -- Grade: B+ - 09/18/2009 Entertainment Weekly


“Acker’s visual gifts are undeniable. He uses CGI to simulate the look of stop-motion, and his rendering of texture -- from grimy fiber to yellowed paper -- is a wonder.” - 09/11/2009 Washington Post


3 stars out of 5 -- "9 takes the extra time to expand its characters....Dialogue is added and monster quotient upped." - 10/22/2009 Total Film


Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Ten Best Animated Films Of 2009" -- "[With] delicate artistry by filmmaker Shane Acker..." - 12/24/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"The visuals are beautifully planned and executed, and they draw viewers deep into a terrifying post-apocalyptic world..." - 01/06/2010 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film itself is visually impressive -- you can, perhaps, detect Burton and Bekmambetov's influence in the eldritchian landscape and twisted dieselpunk designs." - 10/26/2009 Uncut


3 stars out of 5 -- "The eerie visuals are inspired -- they've clearly been swilling around the director's head for years..." - 05/01/2010 Empire
