9

Continuity mistake: When 9 created the "torch" from a light bulb, it needed to be turned to work. However, when 3 and 4 investigate the bulb one of them simply puts it in and it starts glowing without being screwed.

Continuity mistake: During the funeral scene for 2, a tunnel with steel bars is seen in the background, with none of the bars broken. When the camera angle reverses once 2 has floated into the tunnel, one of the steel bars is broken.

Continuity mistake: When 9 meets 3 and 4, they open his zipper. During this scene, several close-ups show 9 with the zipper closed and open again without anyone closing or opening it.

Trivia: 1 tells 9 that he led the others to their current hideout, which he refers to as "sanctuary". The building happens to be Notre Dame church, famously referred to "sanctuary" in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."

Trivia: The Chancellor mentioned by the scientist and shown in the old archive footage appears to be a reference to Adolf Hitler, the fascist dictator of Germany from 1933 through 1945. Hitler held the title of Chancellor of Germany, until he gave himself the new title of Fuhrer. When standing in the car in what appears to be a parade, The Chancellor lifts his hand in a motion similar to that of The Hitler/Nazi Salute. The flags and banners shown on the wall when The Chancellor announces the creation of The Machine are similar to the Swastika Flag of the Nazi Party. Finally, when the Chancellor takes The Machine away from The Scientist, the soldiers who take The Scientist away resemble SS Officers (Hitler's Secret Police Force) in uniform and actions.

Trivia: There is no dialogue for the first 10 minutes of the movie.

Question: What in the world was 8 doing when he had the magnet over his head and he became all relaxed?

Chosen answer: The magnet was acting as a drug on him. He was in a way getting high off a magnet.

Answer: You know the Futurama scene where bender gets high off electricity? Same thing. Magnets make electrical things not work (I'm pretty sure I heard it from some where). It's like how drinking alcohol and taking drugs makes us not totally there. It's what story writers believe happens. Pretty cool story element really.

YellowBird

Question: Before the Seamstress is attacking, there was a quick shot of 8. His mouth was sewed so he couldn't scream for help. Why didn't the Seamstress sew 1's mouth closed?

Chosen answer: Simply a character choice to not sew 1's mouth.

Question: Why were the dolls sent out after the scientist made them? Why didn't they stay with the scientist so he could explain everything?

YellowBird

Answer: They were sent out into the world to create a new world for themselves. Every time the scientist created a doll, he transferred part of his soul into the doll bringing it to life but leaving him weaker. After creating 9 and transferring the piece of his soul into 9, he died so they would never have found out what they were created for.
