WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

9 (Review)

Extending Shane Acker's short film improves its action, but not its story

The title refers to the number scrawled on the back of a rag doll (voiced by Elijah Wood) who wakes up with no knowledge of the world. Wandering through a crumbling, corpse-strewn city, he soon spots a similar figure marked as 2 (Martin Landau) and learns that a dangerous mechanized predator stalks the streets. Because '9' is an animated feature, it’s inevitable that some potential viewers are going to assume it's kid-friendly, which it most decidedly is not. Grade: B.
