Movie Reviews

Nine Dead
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 03/20/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A masked maniac locks nine strangers in a room together and reveals that he will kill one of them every ten minutes until they can figure out the factor that connects them all. As the clock starts to tick, the desperate prisoners scramble to solve the malevolent mystery in time to save their own lives. The acting, sets and story are quite average. Yes the movie is a lot like the idea of Saw. Actually not that bad, but not that good either."
Suspenseful - But Completely Unoriginal
Compay | New Orleans, LA | 03/25/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The best part about Nine Dead is that it keeps you in suspense. The downside? It's been done before in the 2007 film Fermat's Room.

The story is centered around nine strangers who have been kidnapped and handcuffed in a room. Every 10 minutes, their kidnapper will kill one of them, until they realize what they all have in common. Their situation is also complicated by the fact that one of the nine strangers doesn't speak English.

The biggest problem I have with the film is that the film's concept has already been tackled by several movies, including La Habitación de Fermat. In Fermat's Room, four strangers are trapped in a shrinking room that will crush them to death, unless they can discover what they all have in common.

The majority of the cast has worked primarily in television, and there's nothing particularly special about the cinematography. While the film was suspenseful, the film's open-ended conclusion will disappoint many viewers. Not to mention that it was virtually impossible for the kidnapper to know how many of the strangers were connected. Even though I'm straight, I thought the director's choice of which character just so happened to be a pedophile was an unnecessary stereotype and in awful taste.

Overall, the movie is worth a buck to watch through Redbox. But considering it's light on originality, I'd consider giving it a rent before deciding to buy the DVD."
Do not buy this

"Save your money. Go get Netflix. This movie is available there as a Watch Instantly title. It's worth watching, but be prepared for a colossal disappointment in the abrupt ending."
Where the eff was the ending?
Brian M. Marousek | Maryland | 05/31/2010
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, film makers, I know you read these reviews:

Where was the ending? That was lame as hell.

The movie was good but you ruined it with no ending.

How can I recommend a movie to anyone when it just ends?

Weak as hell. You should be ashamed.

Would have been a solid three stars (and a recommendation) with an ending."
