Shawn reviews 9

So, after my Seagal Sunday, I needed a bit of a break. Haha!

9 is something that I pre-screened for my kids. I'll often screen movies for them, before my wife and I let them watch.  I find the rating system fairly flawed in terms of our parenting style. Their ages are 9, 7 and 5. They've all watched the Transformers movies, except the third one.

But my kids will not be watching  9, not because it's too much for them to handle, but because they will likely find it quite boring. They won't really understand the main message and it doesn't offer much else.

Where I can appreciate the visuals, it won't be anything new to them. Their generation gets to see lifelike giant robots transform into cool cars, after fighting other giant robots.

9 was like the aftermath of The Matrix mixed with The Borrowers, if they were dolls. Then animate. Really fucking boring.

They can watch it if they want, but I know they will lose interest a lot quicker than I did. This gets an Ugly from me.
