Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe best reason to see it is simply because of the creativity of its visuals. They're entrancing.

eye Weekly
Will Sloan quote iconWithout anyone to care about, the action becomes dull and repetitive, and even the post-apocalyptic landscape starts to look run-of-the-mill.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconConsidering the amount of detail that was obviously put into the visuals, one only wishes as much creative and imaginative effort would have been put into the script.

Tomatometer quote iconAlthough its story is perhaps too familiar and less complex than some might wish, 9 is visually spectacular, and director Shane Acker's attention to detail succeeds in drawing viewers into the film's universe.
