A bit different,
This review is from: District 9 [DVD]  (DVD)
At first I really didn't know what to make of this movie. I found it annoying, funny when it wasn't meant to be and even a little childish. Then a guy becomes infected with alien DNA and the story became more interesting. In simple terms it is all about divisions in society and how outsiders struggle to fit in. The fact that it is aliens that are the outcasts are what make this a bit different and the makers deserve credit for that.
The CGI is very impressive and the acting is OK. There are lapses into cliche (the psycho soldier, the many escapes from certain death) and I dont really think that ' District 9' is quite as good as the hype would have you believe. But this isn't too bad on the whole and once the opening twenty minutes are out of the way it is entertaining enough.
