My Friend Stephen sent me the link to youtube to watch a trailer for a new movie coming out, District 9. Beyond the trailer I knew nothing about it. I watched this movie over the weekend. No big name movie stars Not set in America( for once) Not a major Hollywood backed film It is a Sci-fi movie, but not set in space. My verdict.............WATCH THIS FILM It starts off by setting the background to our anti hero and introduces us to the Aliens and how they arrived on Earth. The movie really starts 25 years later, when the humans are starting to cause the government concern as anti alien sentiment turns into riots and demonstrations against the aliens been in South Africa So, the MNU, the company that is making the most out of the aliens been on earth, decides to re locate them to a new "camp" 30 or 40 miles away from Johannesburg. This is when things heat up..... The acting is great, lots of sub titles to allow you to see what the aliens and the Nigerians are saying, its funny how we watch the sub titles,yet the humans in the movie understand all the clicks from the aliens.

The CGI is great, the fight scenes well done. This gets a 9/10 from me. Those who want to pick fault, go ahead, but you have to admit, it's different.

Score
This movie scores 9/10
