What!!!By rtdpj from Essex , 22 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]You watch this film and it actually starts of well you get excited thinking you've found like the only devil/ angel film tnat works and then the end happens and your like 'oh well that was exciting.' Not!
If your watching this then just start from the beginning watch half way and then stop to avoid disappointment.

Good polanski old style film making m,ytery of the ocultBy Daura (67 reviews) from Coventry , 30 Dec 2012This is an deliberatly old style film. A dealer of antique and valuable books is hired to retrieve a book. The book brings about Depp being followed and almost run down. He decides to investigate this book which leads him to look at the ocult and trvells accross europe. on his journey he meets an attractive young woman but hes not sure if shes a help or a hinderance. will the book be the death of him?

struggeled to stay interested with it abit slowBy smokeychops (554 reviews) from newcastle under lyme , 07 Aug 2012I didn't really get this film. It was well made and good acting as usuall from johnny depp. I just had trouble staying interested throughout the film. Thought it was slow.
Kinda weird.By gianino (618 reviews) from London , 09 Apr 2012I think Polansky is a bit overrated, Ok Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown were awesome and then what? Not much that I personally liked. And the Ninth Gate is really an example of mediocre cinema. It's really weird and an over the top movie. Apart from Johnny Depp performance the rest is kind of forgetful.
I enjoyed it which seems to be bucking the trend in these reviewsBy a customer , 01 Apr 2012I am not normally a big horror or even science fiction fan but I rather enjoyed this film. Johnny Depp was good which is not always the case with him I find. As for the ending which some people seemed disappointed with, I found myself expecting something along the lines of what happened. A good film.
