This week I was fortunate enough to get to see a double feature with Mrs Cheesecake. First off, based on the 2005 short film of the same name, 9 is a dark fantasy telling the story of life after humans.

The visual elements of this film are a real treat. Personally I feel sometimes that computer animation can be a bit to crisp but in this case there was a nice grungy quality will still being picture perfect.


Shane Acker directs and the voice cast includes Elijah Wood, John C Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover and Christopher Plummer.

The film nips along at quite a pace and the seventy nine minutes are done before you know it. I, for one, would have liked to have see more.

Perhaps a bit scary for younger children but I think the rating of 12A was a bit extreme.

Till next time
