Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard We are treated to superb city landscapes but so much minor detail that you never know who is doing what to whom, or even why. Rated: 2/5 Jun 7, 2013 Full Review Tom Huddleston Time Out It's beautifully animated - the climactic sequence in Earth orbit is breathtaking - and its philosophical digressions are fascinating, if completely bananas. Rated: 3/5 Jun 7, 2013 Full Review Chris Michael Guardian We're in a post-9/11 world plagued with terror attacks. Is it an American corporate conspiracy? Or the work of a deity? Cue the obligatory second-half metaphysical blather. Rated: 2/5 Jun 6, 2013 Full Review Joseph Walsh CineVue Despite its good looks, there's no escaping 009 Re: Cyborg's tiresome and hollow script. Rated: 2/5 Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) It's overlong and, for an animated film, there's too much windy philosophical talk of an ontological kind, dropping the names of Freud and the religious historian Mircea Eliade. Jun 9, 2013 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Flick Filosopher A whole lotta WTF folded into a derivative, misogynist, and just plain incoherent mess. Jun 7, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Push too far in the theological with the concept of His Voice resulting in something boring and confusing. Disappointing, I was expecting better from the Cyborgs. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Ah... Story was too smart and complicated... So it was really hard to understand it... Beautiful animation and nice 3D effects... Message was good. But movie ended suddenly... Japanese people makes great anime series and only 25 minutes. But they can't make great movies... Too long... So I kinda disappointed... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Visuellement ça claque (I.G. production made of XD) Par contre le scénar WTF ... Bref, à matter pour le bonheur des yeux :) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a masterpiece but ending is so lame... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Some good fight scenes good characters designs but bad stupid plot witch makes no senses too much philosophical talk Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A CGI ANIMATION which hasn't got the right mixture of action. Nonetheless it's an outstanding work. The plot ravels around terroristic attacks on high rise buildings around the world, propertied by people who hear and obey to 'HIS VOICE' . In time the story goes into the finding the answer to the never-ending existential question of who we are, our origins, and God. All is explored through the 9 cyborgs who gather together to save the world. If you are not familiar with the original series of CYBORG 009 , here is the list of our 9 heroes, and their ethnic backgrounds: Russian Ivan Whisky, Cyborg 001 (Toshiba Fukjita) who is barely 1 year old but has enhanced telekinetic and teleportation powers. American Cyborg 002 Jet Link (Ryotaro Okaiyu) is an NSA agent and possesses the ability to fly at a supersonic speed, thanks legs that transform into rockets. 003 is Francoise Arnoul (Houko Kawashima), a French female cyborg who can detect and access worldwide networks thanks to enhanced hearing and sight. 004 is Albert Heinrich (Kazuya Nakai) a German cyborg whose entire being is made up of deadly weapons. Native American Geronimo Jr Cyborg 005 (voiced by Hisao Egawa) is equipped with superhuman strength. Chinese chef Chang Changku is Cyborg 006 (Naoki Tatsuta) can breathe and shoot fire! Cyborg 007 is Great Britain (Masaya Onosaka) is a spy for the British secret service and is able to blend in with any substance. African Cyborg 008 Pyunma (Hikaru Midorikawa) has the ability to live and breathe underwater, even in depths of up to 10km. Their fearless leader, Cyborg 009, Joe Shimamura (Hiroshi Kamiya) possesses all the technology of the other eight heroes in one deadly weapon. Despite being fully CG, the animation was treated with a cel-shader, enabling the film to retain the look of traditional hand-drawn animation, giving rise to a cel looking CG animation. Superb!
