(WARNING THIS FILM IS A AFTER DOOMSDAY FILM)
The Scientist created the B.R.A.I.N. (or the Fabrication Machine) for peaceful purposes. However, the "Leader of Mankind" took control of the machine and used it to wage war on other humans. Lacking a soul, the machine was corrupted and turned on mankind, wiping them out. The Scientist constructed nine rag doll-like homunculi, or "creations," in order to ensure some form of life would carry on, and created a Talisman which could be used to destroy the Fabrication Machine. The Scientist died shortly after animating his final creation, 9.
9 awakens at the start of the film, taking the Talisman with him. Outside, in the lifeless and devastated world, 9 meets 2, who gives him a vocal processor to speak. However, they are attacked by a machine called the "Cat Beast" and 2 is captured. 9 is saved by one-eyed 5 who takes him to Sanctuary, an abandoned cathedral, where surviving creations of the Scientist are led by 1 and his bodyguard 8. 9 decides to rescue 2 from an old factory, aided by 5. The two locate 2 and the "Cat Beast" is destroyed by 7, the only female creation and an expert ninja. 9 spots the dormant Fabrication Machine and connects the Talisman to its socket, it sucks out 2's lifeforce, which awakens the Fabrication Machine. The survivors retreat to 3 and 4's hideout where they reveal the machine's origins: an artificial intelligence called B.R.A.I.N. which creates other machines in its own image, but then turned on humanity and took over. 9 realizes they need to remove the Talisman from the machine, and returns to Sanctuary where 6, who seems to have knowledge of the Talisman, urges them to "return to the source." Sanctuary is attacked by a bird-like robot, which is destroyed, as is Sanctuary.
A snake-like robot, the "Seamstress", kidnaps 7 and 8, using 2's corpse as 'bait' and generating a series of flashes through 2's eyes to hypnotize them. 9 follows the "Seamstress" to the abandoned factory and witnesses 8 being killed by the Fabrication Machine, but rescues 7 before the remaining creations destroy the factory and, seemingly, the machine. The survivors celebrate, but the machine rises and kills 5, then 6. Before he dies, 6 warns 9 that the souls of the murdered creations are within the machine and it shouldn't be destroyed. He hints that the "source" is in the Scientist's workshop where 9 awoke. 9 goes to the workshop and finds a hologram addressed to him, which explains how the B.R.A.I.N. was born of his intellect and was intended for good but was captured by government agents and used as a weapon of war, it became corrupted because the scientists never gave it a "real" soul. In retaliation, the Scientist designed and animated the nine creations, putting part of his soul into each of them before his death. He explains how the Talisman can be used to destroy the B.R.A.I.N./Fabrication Machine by taking the intellect that he gave from the machine. 9 realizes that if he can take the machines "life force" then he can save the souls of his friends. 9 then looks at the Scientist's lifeless corpse with sadness and pity. As they battle the machine, 9 prepares to sacrifice himself, but 1 sacrifices himself instead to allow 9 to remove the Talisman and destroy the machine.
The film ends with 9, 7, 3, and 4 releasing the souls of 1, 2, 5, 6, and 8, who, after briefly bidding them farewell, soar into the sky and cause it to rain. The raindrops contain a green liquid the same color as the departed souls, hinting that there is still hope for future life.
Prequel and Sequel?
In the commentary for 9, a comment was made about a prequel leading up to the events of 9. It was also stated in the commentary that the rain drops had microscopic organisms that would eventually evolve and be shown in a sequel. These features are just speculative.
And now for the Stitchpunks
The Scientist's first creation. As the oldest of the group, he is the self-declared leader (though not all agree with his leadership, which leads to some conflicts). He ostensibly sent 2 out to scout, but may have hoped that he would be killed in the process. 1 is stubborn, irritable and cowardly. He has set down rules which he expects the others to follow. He frequently quarrels with 9. 1 wears a red cape that has a red jewel attached, and carries a bishop's mitre and crosier as symbols of authority. However, as he loses these things throughout the film, he becomes braver, and shows his change of character when he sacrifices himself to help 9 destroy the B.R.A.I.N.
a kindly inventor and explorer who embodies the Scientist's strong creative spirit. 2 is depicted as fearless with an inquisitive personality, and is a good friend of 5. Due to his excursions through the wastelands, his body has sustained much wear and tear, making him frail and delicate. He uses a candle-lit helmet to help him see better. Producer Shane Acker describes him as a "salty old dog.".
3 and 4
Are scholarly twins who voraciously catalog everything they can find, building a database of the world that surrounds them and the history that led up to their creation. Unlike the other creations, 3 and 4 cannot speak, but they communicate to each other through a series of flashes from their eyes which can also be used to play video clips. They are curious and playful, but also shy and timid, acting much like little puppies. 3 and 4 are made from a pair of gardening gloves, resulting in their cowled appearance, and the cape-like empty thumb hanging from their backs. there gender is open to question but, For instance, whenever they're outside a hideout or together, 4 will always hide behind 3 (thus theorizing that 4 is a girl and 3's a boy). However, there have been some rumors that Shane Acker would declare the Twins as both boys but it's still uncomfirmed over their genders. AND to make matters worse, accoring to this snippet from wikipedia:
"3 and 4 are scholarly twins who voraciously catalog everything they can find, building a database of the world that surrounds them and the history that led up to their creation. Unlike the other creations, 3 and 4 cannot speak, but they communicate to each other through a series of flashes from their eyes which can also be used to play video clips. They are curious and playful, but also shy and timid, acting much like small children. 3 and 4 are made from a pair of gardening gloves, resulting in their cowled appearance, and the cape-like empty thumb hanging from their backs. Their genders are ambiguous in the film, but Acker has affirmed that both are female."
Believe what you want, but body language suggests that one is male, the other is female. If you're talking to me However I don't know
A caring, nurturing, one-eyed engineer. He is loyal, trusting and big-hearted, but also timid and meek. He is also the apprentice of 2, with whom he shares a special bond. He lost his left eye during a machine attack some time ago, but, as he tells 9, losing it makes concentrating on just one thing at a time much easier. He carries a pack on his shoulder filled with weapons and tools that the group uses.
A reclusive and eccentric artist. He draws many pictures of his visions of the Talisman. He constantly mumbles about "going back to the source" but, he is often dismissed. He acts somewhat like a young child (like when he is trying to catch a piece of burnt paper from the church fire). His fingertips are made of pen nibs, stained by ink. He is made of gray-and-white striped fabric, and one of his eyes is larger than the other. This may lead to his "crazy" appeareance. 6 wears a key around his neck which he protects throughout the film. 9 is the only one in the group that seems to want to try to understand what 6 is trying to say. Before his death, he tells 9 one more time to 'go back to the source', and that the souls of the others are still inside the machine.
A brave, dexterous and self-sufficient ninja(not a assain just very agile), 7 is the only female member of the group. A fiercely independent adventurer, she has been out patrolling the wasteland. To survive, she has adapted, finding the bones of a deceased bird and crafting her signature skull helmet. 7 is made of canvas; because of her exposure to the wastelands, whatever color she once had has bleached away, making her white. She is also graceful, kind, and caring, although overall she is a complete ninja, once seen taking down a machine all by herself. She shows a more vulnerable side towards the end.
Came into being for the purpose of protecting the Scientist's creations from the evil machine uprising. He wields the metal core of a kitchen utility knife and a scissor blade. The none-too-bright muscle and enforcer of the group, 8 bullies some of the others, especially 6. He seems to enjoy applying a magnet to the circuitry in his head, which appears to have the effects of recreational drugs or alcohol upon him, possibly explaining his comparatively low intelligence.
The final creation of the scientist. 9 is a sincere, kind, and honest creation who carries the Scientist's true human qualities: bravery and courage. He is the last to be created as the Scientist dies immediately after transferring the last of his soul to 9, and the last to awaken. 9 asks many questions, which 1 declares "pointless." He makes mistakes, but he has a good heart and does the right thing.
Tell you the turth I have seen better films than this they should make more backstorys and more Monsters. the Stichpunks remind me of the sackpeople from little big planet only more human looking. Oh and by the way the stitchpunks are at least a couple inches tall. Also those things
remind me of mushroom men.
