Director: Nicholas Meyer
Starring: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Christopher Plummer
You could be forgiven for thinking that The Final Frontier had killed Cinema-Trek dead as a Norwegian Blue parrot. But there was a determination within the Trek family not to go out on a bum note. Nimoy got involved in writing and producing and back came Nicholas Meyer. Is it enough to claw back some dignity before the old crew pass the baton…?
9 is an astonishing and beautiful piece of the apocalypse.
I have no good reason for why I did not see this in the theater. I was extremely excited when I saw the first trailer. I had already seen and loved the short film. My favorite movies are Toy Story and City of Lost Children and this is pretty much the combination of both. I love animated films. The last great film I had seen had the number 9 in the title and was also based on a short film. Instead I foolishly listened to reviews about it. What a great film.
