i loved this movie.i bought it on DVD with really no expectations.boy,
was i pleasantly surprised.the performances were excellent, the music
was perfect for the film. Depp gives an understated performance which
kept me riveted for the whole movie.Frank Langella is brilliantly cast
as the bad guy.Emmanuaelle Seigner was particularly effective as the
mysterious girl who always seems to show up where Depp's character,
Dean Corso happens to be to lend a helping hand. but of course all is
not as it seems, as the ending reveals.the ending reveals just enough
to tease the viewer.i can find no fault with this movie.many people
complained about the ending, but i thought the ending was as it should
be, leaving the viewer to wonder what might happen next, which was, i
think the point.all of the deaths in the movie were very creepy and
eerie.i had not seen a Polanski movie before,but he really impressed me
with this effort.I have watched this movie several times and loved it
each time.to those people who hated this movie, all i can say is"to
each their own"and maybe it is an acquired taste.this movie is
definitely in my top ten.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply outstanding July 25 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i really loved this film.i had no expectations going in,so i was pleasantly surprised.i thought all the performances were great.Frank Langella was brilliant.but is it Johnny Depp in the lead role who was really impressive.Depp puts in another quietly understated performance.the music was also perfect for this movie.it really brings out the suspense and creepiness factor.i thought the move was very stylistic and atmospheric.the tone is very dark,which is good,because the movie delves pretty deeply into dark territory.all i will say about that aspect is that it involves the occult.but the movie also has some substance and certainly raises some questions.it's certainly thought provoking.most of all,though,it's just entertaining.i don't always like Roman Polanski's movies,but he really impressed with this one.i highly recommend it.my vote for the "The Ninth Gate":5/5

Format:DVD
The absolutely creepy yet sublime direction of this Polanski endeavour makes it a worthwhile watch. Almost Kubrick-like, wide angle shots and lax-paced screenplay and all.
I was riveted. Riveted, that is, right until the somewhat confusing fire and cobblestone ending, which admittedly leaves you with very little to chew on and instead of appearing clever and ambiguous, as it perhaps wanted to, mostly comes off as complacent.
Yet, the point of a mystery noirish film is to keep you intrigued through out, and the movie manages to do that quite successfully. The sleuthing process is almost done in tandem with the audience, which is fun. Johnny Depp is immaculate in his potrayal of a detached book detective and all others contribute richly. The music is tacky in bits, but not too distracting.
Recommended rental for haunting cinematography of Portugal and France, and a fabulously captivating atmosphere in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars not a FLOP by any means June 20 2004
Format:DVD
I'm currently watching the TRIO channel's disgusting butchery of this film as apart of their "month of flops" promotion. The only FLOP I see is their editing of essential footage. They have condensed the movie to under 2 hours...and have subsequently made certain scenes appear as "stupid" (for lack of a better word).
This movie grew on me. I was not intially impressed, but after viewing it with friends and family, I have become a big fan of its haunting yet calming persona. The subject matter deals with Satanic idolatry, but the movie is in no way "goth". It's the kind of film you could watch with your children and not worry about them being scarred for life.
As far as comedy, Johnny Depp's bad luck with women is hilarious. His facial expressions (even while killing "the albino") are a hoot.
As for the ending, after many viewings I believe Depp went to hell where he was praised for being the human father of the anti-Christ. All along, the lady in the sneakers was Satan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Horror Thriller June 17 2004
Format:DVD
Boris Balkan (Frank Langella), a publisher and collector of rare books with Satan as the protagonist, hires Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) a rare book appraiser to investigate the last three surviving copies of The Ninth Gate to discover which copy is genuine. The original Ninth Gate was purportedly co-authored by Lucifer. His human co-author was burned during the inquisition.
Depp travels to Europe to examine the other volumes and encounters a mysterious blond (Emmanuelle Seigner) with mystical powers. He ultimately discovers that each book contains a part of the ritual needed to bring forth Satan. Balkan has competition in the Order of the Serpent, a coven of Satan worshippers who meet every year on the anniversary of the author's death. Balkan has a very low opinion of them, despite having once been a member, he calls their rites and practices "mumbo jumbo" and confronts them during one of their rites.
For a rare book appraiser, Depp's character sure acts irresponsibly around the books by smoking, eating and handling them without gloves.
I loved the obscure ending most movies about Satan contain clique endings and are boring! Depp has some comedic moments he's wonderful with his facial expressions! There aren't a lot of special effects this is mainly a horror thriller. I recommend it because it was something a bit different than the ordinary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Depp
I hated the old Mr. Depp movies. But his new ones (yes to an extent even pirates) have gotten better.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little dark but intriguing
Definitely a European made movie with Johnny Depp, but an excellent but rather dark storyline. Lots of twists and turns with the plot, and never a dull moment for Depp's character.
