EDIT: This post originated as a response to DaveF's, before our posts were separated into the Official Review and Discussion threads. Dave's full review can now be found in the Official Review thread. I just saw the film, Dave, and I have no idea what you're referring to. Could you be more specific, maybe in a spoiler box? What other examples did you see in the film? Considering that there is a schism within the survivor society over how to live in the aftermath of the great disaster, I'm not sure how one can say that characters are avoiding doing the "sensible thing". What appears "sensible" to an outsider may be unthinkable (or taboo) to someone in a different culture, and part of the point of 9 is that these creatures arrive in the world with no bearings and no pre-existing society that can orient them. Yes, it takes the entire film for 9 to do what 2 told him, because, from about the moment that 2 tells him, circumstances render it impossible for 9 to do it. And what about the ending "makes no sense"?
