Review: District 9

An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology.

There has been a lot of talk about this movie, and it is well deserved, my hat goes off to the director Neill Blomkamp for making this movie. There is a cliche part to it in the science fiction genre, but they manage to humanize the experience of these aliens and you can relate to them. I won’t ruin the movie with any spoilers, except that it turned out to be even better then I expected and it left me thinking of certain possibilities. There were a lot of humorous parts and some well done action packed scenes, I wouldn’t mind trying out some alien weaponery but I think that everyone should go see this movie.

    It was pretty obvious they wanted us to relate , to think about racism blah blah and other social problems but it was too much in your face. I was like i get it i get it slums , calling the aliens prawns , crime etc.

    It was too preachy.

  2. Been looking for an HD rip, but didn’t find. I’ll stick with the SD. Read good reviews and yours just adds up.

  5. I have to agree with you, just shows you how greedy and nasty humans can be…..

    but at the same time there was love,action and comedy all in all i give it 9.5/10 i saw it at the movie theaters and the acting and screenplay together with the storyline and the hovering alien spaceship was exceptional!
