Transported to Barsoom, a Civil War vet discovers a barren planet seemingly inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Woola and a princess in desperate need of a savior.
The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father's corrupted creation and a unique ally who was born inside the digital world.
In a world destroyed in a war between man and machine, a hand-stitched doll with the number 9 written on its back comes to life. The world he has awakened in is frightening, but he quickly learns that he is not alone and that there are others like him, also with a single digit written on their back. The first one he encounters is 2 who tells him something of what happened to the world. 2 is also thrilled with the disk 9 is carrying, one with three unique symbols on the front. 9 soon learns that the disk and some of the other dolls who are prepared to die for the good of humankind may be the last hope for man's salvation.Written by
The movie was released the same year as Terminator Salvation (2009) another movie set in a post-apocalyptic future which robots have taken over the world. In both movies, 9 (Elijah Wood) and Marcus Wright ( Sam Worthington ) wake up in those post apocalyptic worlds and they know nothing about the robots taking over the world and wiping out mankind and they aid the survivors in fighting back against the robots.

When 1 marks 2's number off on the calendar, it is under Thursday. 3 and 4 (also marked off) are on Friday and Saturday. Sunday's number on the next week cannot be seen, but then Monday is numbered 5, and the numbers continue from there, ending on 10 for Saturday. The following week follows the same pattern, skipping Sunday, then starting on Monday with 11, then 12, 13 before the calendar can no longer be read. See more »
We had such potential. Such promise. But we squandered our gifts, our intelligence. Our blind pursuit of technology only sped us quicker to our doom. Our world is ending. But life must go on.

I thought that this movie was a good movie. Even though this is an animated movie, it's designed for adults more than kids. In fact, I read that this is the fourth computer animated movie to receive a PG-13 rating. But let me tell you something, the visuals are absolutely amazing. I liked the way how the movie portrayed the post apocalyptic world.
The story is about a group of ragtag dolls who must work together to save their comrades from machines that destroyed the humans. This is a great story, but it needs some work. That's the weak point of the movie.
I am actually happy that Focus Features made a film like this because I liked the eleven minute short that was nominated for an Academy Award. Overall, this is a visually-stunning film that needs some script work. I rate this film 8/10.
