DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - A mixture of film noir and a supernatural thriller, The Ninth Gate is by turns tedious and moronic. The film may have some appeal to teenage boys (who aren't supposed to be able to get in because of the R-rating), but even they will be bored by long stretches of the film.

Critic's Review Heading
Very Poor
The Ninth Gate has two modes: tedious and moronic, with the two not being mutually exclusive. Then, one-hundred minutes into this seemingly interminable movie (which clocks in at about 2:10), things take a turn for the worse and The Ninth Gate spirals out of control. A jaw-droppingly bad mixture of film noir and the occult, this picture plods and meanders its way through one uninspired scene after another until it reaches an improbable, laughable climax followed by an equally ridiculous denouement. Only the lobotomized and the brain dead will be able to figure out the logic embraced by The Ninth Gate.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dean Corso (Depp) is highly skilled at his work, a position which requires dexterity, cultural expertise, nerves of steel... and few scruples. Known for locating rare books for wealthy collectors, Corso is hired by an eminent book-lover and scholar of demonology, Boris Balkan (Langella). Corso's mission: to find the last two volumes of the legendary manual of satanic invocation "The Nine Gates of the Shadow Kingdom," compare them with Balkan's first volume, supposedly the only one of its kind, and ascertain the authenticity of the series. Corso accepts the challenge. From New York to Toledo, Paris to Cintra, he immerses himself in a labyrinth full of pitfalls and temptations, disturbing encounters, violence and mysterious deaths. Protected by an angelic creature (Seigner) and guided by a force more powerful than himself, the hunter solves one by one the mysteries of the dreaded Book and discovers the real purpose of his mission...
