Why Shane Acker's 9 is LittleBigPlanet: The Movie

PS3 Attitude writes, "Shane Acker's 9 tells the story of a post apocalyptic world where humanity has been destroyed and all that remains is a group of stitchpunks and the machines that hunt them. LittleBigPlanet features a cute little sack person as he traverses the world rescuing his friends and defeating the nasty creatures that roam about.

You might be wondering why this film would have anything to do with LittleBigPlanet. That's exactly what we're going to tell you…"

I mean, 9 (the short film) was released in 2005, and had been in development for FOUR AND A HALF YEARS before Media Molecule had even come into existence.

If anything, it should be the other way around, with LBP being 9: The Video Game.

Of course, both the game and film stand on their own merits, and I doubt that the similarities are much more than pure coincidence (although it is possible that MM may have borrowed some ideas from the short film).

Either way, LBP was a great game and 9 seems like great film (which I am planning to see next week), and that is all that matters. :D

I can not wait for this movie to come out on Bluray

It's an okay movie. Don't get your expectations too high. It's not bad, but not exceptionally good either. I'd give it a 6/10. Of course, if you don't mind the rather bland plot and group of characters, and would rather marvel at the art direction, then go ahead and raise that to a 7, but, as for me, plot does matter. The writing is below average.

After seeing this movie I really hope someone decides to make a level based on the movie. It could definitely be done.

the previews look good. IGN gave it a 5/10 :(

Since when does IGN review movies?

poindat4943d ago

IGN is A LOT more than just a gaming site.

Pandamobile4943d ago

Hmm. I don't frequent IGN. I thought they were just a games site.

simple explanation for that 5/10 review.

To put it simply. They didn't get any advertising revenue from the movie and decided they'd teach em a lesson for future reference.

Please, everyone is giving it scores like that. It looks like an action movie that just so happens to be animated. I wouldn't waste money on it.

I thought this looked like a great film when the trailers first showed up. It looked like it had the potential to be a great animated film, and a really dark one, with an interesting story and great animation.

After seeing it, though, it was really underwhelming. The animation was great for the first ten minutes, but then it just went downhill from there. The story was not inspired at all, the character development was non-existent, it quickly devolved into cliche after cliche, and in the end it was just silly... Not a very good film, in my opinion.

I would give it a solid 5/10
