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.
