Thought they could do more. A little disappointing.

Although the animation is wonderful and I like many of the actors voicing the characters, the end that makes absolutely no sense and the many holes in the story destroyed the enjoyment I had of the movie.


We understand that the humanity lost to the machines (hello The Matrix) but the scientist who created the first intelligent machine in a last effort to wins over them (how, if everyone is dead?!!) transfers his soul in 9 little dolls (they don't explain how he could transfer only part of his soul to any of the dolls, another hole in the story).

These little dolls must learn to work together to survive and ultimately destroy the last machines (especially the one that 9 woke up by giving it by mistake the part that makes the transfer of the soul possible).

In the process of fighting for their life, a few of the dolls's "souls" get trapped in that machine, their body now "dead". 9 finds out about the transfer from the scientist's last message and succeed in transferring them back to the "part" he steals back from the machine.

Then he buries the bodies of the fallen dolls in a circle and releases their "souls" in the atmosphere which clears it and starts the rain to renew the cycle of life.

Here are my questions and why the end made no sense to me: why would the "part" fit to the evil machine in the first place? Why would releasing souls in the atmosphere would clear it and make the rain fall? Why didn't it take all the 9 "souls" to actually do it (only 5 were released)? How did 9 get the bodies back to burry them in that circle (one of them was "sent away" on the water when he "died")? Why wouldn't 9 transfer back the "souls" to the bodies? It's not as is the bodies of the dolls were alive in the first place.

And if you notice, the only survivors are a couple and the 2 twins (who act like children), which represents a family. How very Hollywoodian.

What, will they be the only family left on earth? Will they live forever, ALONE?

The plot of the story is full of holes. It's also nothing new, a variation on a known theme: the machine you create will kill you in the end (Frankenstein anyone?).

It's a shame that all that talented animation is wasted on that joke of a story.
