I saw the movie Friday and really, I'm shocked people aren't going out to see this. There were barely ten of us in the theatre (and I was only one of two girls...) and none of us had a negative reaction to the movie. The visuals of the movie really amazed me, and the story had me going for more. A lot of movies in this day and age are 3D as a gimmick, but this was a rare case in which I don't think it would've worked as well in traditional animation. It's very well done, with such great little details on the characters and the backgrounds which allow you to be taken away to this desolate, ruined world.
The nine, I feel, are characters any of us can identify with in one way or another, they're all really different (well, except for 3 and 4). You also can get a pretty clear idea of their motives. The only one who doesn't have much character development due to...reasons is 2, and anyways you get an idea on what he was like just from the others talking about him later.
This movie is kinda really depressing, but theres also hope for the future as well. I'm not the kind of person who cries at movies, but this movie had me bawling (though granted I'm coming off of a really bad week and I'm not, emotionally, in the best state right now, so maybe thats why. Or now). So a warning to those who cry easily at movies, you might want to bring some tissues in your pocket.
