Synopsis

Nine regular humans from different parts of the world are abducted and transformed into cyborgs with astounding powers for the purpose of being used as weapons. The nine cyborgs rebel and start to fight against their creators in the name of justice and world peace. Decades later, the nine cyborgs seem to be untouched by time, but they live in a world where "justice" has as many nuances as the number of people living on the planet. What is their place in the world now?

"In the beginning was the Voice, and the word was Him; and all obeyed His word in great awe. But those who dwelt upon the land, through vanity, cunning and greed, attempted to build a multitude of towers whose tops reached unto heaven, and accumulated great wealth on earth. Scattering across the land and laying it to waste, man turned a deaf ear to His Voice. So He gave unto man an opportunity to atone for his misdeeds; and flame and smoke and the roar of a lion descended upon earth; and shattered the many towers to dust...."

As a large fan of the Cyborg 009 series, this movie felt like a personal offense. The movie is a darker, 'realistic' reimagining on the series and its characters. This isn't inherently a bad thing, of course, but it comes off as following the current trend of gritty remakes instead of trying to understand its source material.

The plot is confusing whether you are familiar with the show or not. It might help to be acquainted with the characters and their backstories beforehand, but the movie doesn't even try to explain its own universe. What little there is of the story is given through large, boring read more

There's a new fashion in the anime industries the last few years were old school manga are either adapted to anime (like Parasite and Jojo's bizarre adventure) or they are getting reboots (like Sailor moon and Hunter x hunter). Yet in Cyborg 009's case things are different. The classic manga of Ishinomori sensei has three anime adaptations and even more movies. Is like the anime industry wants to introduce to every new generation this classic story. I myself have watched the 2001 version when I was a kid and I can say in a way that I grew up with it. I recently watched read more

I don't write reviews, as I often do not need to. However the "009 Re:Cyborg" was a complete waste of my time, and anyone else's.

I'll keep it short and simple: If you're curious if this movie is any good not, the answer is "It's not". Usually I can some some merit, but this was an hour and a half I feel has been completely wasted.

The CG is well done, as expected of I.G. Productions, however the story is nonsensical that tries to use lingo it clearly doesn't know the mean of, or how to use. There are a lot of "modern" throwbacks such read more

Re: Cyborg 009 is, in a word, disappointing. As a fan of the 2001 series since childhood and a great admirer of the studio which worked on this (Production I.G., who are responsible for such wonderful series as Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex) I expected great things from this darker, more realistic take on the classic franchise. Sadly, despite a promising start and beautiful animation, the film falls flat on its' face, resulting in something which may be worth watching once, but which cannot stand up to even the most cursory analysis.
