Fifth about The Seventh

9 (2009)

99: post-apocalyptic stories come in many different shapes, but the one being told in Shane Acker’s film is a very unusual one. It contains the usual elements and the usual cautionary tales, but the choice of characters is inspired. The animation makes the best of it: the characters are well-designed, their physicality clearly distinguishable; the setting is nightmarish, dark, detailed. The voice casting is diverse (it’s good to have Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau and John C. Reilly in a film, no matter if only their voices); their acting is solid, non-flashy, in line with the setting.
