Written on: 20/01/2010 by kirsty88 (88 reviews written)

I would disagree with previous sentiments that this is a film only for science fiction fans. I watched it recently to see what all the fuss was about and i have to say i liked it much more than i thought i would. And i'm not a science fiction fan. I have never really been a fan of the whole alien genre but i this film was sufficiently multi-layered and there are several different messages you can take away from it.
I think i liked it because it surprised me. It has it's comedy moments and… Read Full Review

“THIS IS AN AMAZING FILM. But only if you like guns,...”

Written on: 14/01/2010 by DaveyBoy77 (58 reviews written)

THIS IS AN AMAZING FILM. But only if you like guns, aliens, sci-fi etc..., definitely more one for the boys! The premise of the film is that an alien spaceship has made its home over Johannesburg, and the aliens (or prawns as they're known), start settling in slums.

The human residents get a bit peaved by this, and try and evict them, when something bad happens to one of the guys leading the eviction. I don't want to spoil the plot, but the story that unfolds henceforth is fantastic.

Written on: 15/09/2009 by Taylott (173 reviews written)

I rarely give full marks for movies that I go and see, but District 9 is an exception. I went to see this movie recently, and haven't stopped thinking about it!

Yes it is another human vs. alien movie, but with a difference. You get drawn into the story right from the off, and you really get thinking about how we treat different people/species!

The special effects are amazing, and the acting is pretty good too. I heard that the lead actor (Sharlto Copley) had never acted before! I'm… Read Full Review

“District 9 is an amazing film from first time director...”

Written on: 07/09/2009 by reviewkitten (295 reviews written)

District 9 is an amazing film from first time director Neill Blomkamp. Having previously impressed with his short Halo teaser films this is better than I had expected.

The story of an alien refugee camp of slums (District 9) in Johannesburg where aliens have lived for over 20 years is a great turn on a tired alien versus man theme. I can't really say too much about the film without spoiling it but the visual effects (including some impressive weapons) combined with a story that really drags… Read Full Review

For all you sci fi buffs District 9 has it all.
The film is based around south africa and the city of johannasburg.
Aliens came to earth 20 years ago and over the years have become a burden on humans, to the point they are not wanted here,
The title of the film is based on the slum town to which the aliens are housed, district 9.

Not going to spoil the film for you but.....
1, fantastic special effects
2, great dark humour.
3. everything a sci fi film needs, aliens, weapons, and… Read Full Review
