This is possibly my favorite movie of all time, because it blends sci-fi with real world problems like racism and the darker side of human existance. I love how the computer generated objects and the real world objects coincided perfectly, to me this is a gem of modern film-making and I would certainly watch it multiple times...
A brilliant, Kafkaeque film that talks about what might been if the people of the world embrace aliens in our midst.
This is a bleak and sad modern fable because it is unrelenting and unflinching in exposing how humans can be so greedy and inhumane to outsiders.
Am sure this film will incite debates and discussions in campfires and small group dinner talks for many years.
More than just the exemplary VFX (and it's truly stunning quality) District 9 wins out with an incredible story structured beautifully that speaks both to the past and the future. True Sci-Fi, true genius. That there are unanswered questions in this story only adds to the allure.
I have to agree with everyone that's written a review so far. District 9 was absolutely fantastic and unfortunately relevant. Neil Blomkamp has cemented his position in the science fiction pantheon with this film, creating not only a thought-provoking story, but a thoroughly fun and enjoyable film to boot. Do yourself a favor and see this film during the opening weekend!
I don't see much of the often pointed out social/political commentary myself, as at best it boils down to a simplistic and predictable 'they are like us' sentiment, lacking much depth. What I do see, however, is that the first half is a fun--finer detail aiding-- mockumentary before it goes for action/sci-fi spectacle. District 9 may be bombast over brains, but there's a smile to be had in its humor and set pieces.
Extraordinaire et inclassable film, même s'il ressort du genre science-fiction. La caméra suit tout le long du film un cadre de l'administration peu excitant, falot et opportuniste, qui va révéler des qualités de bravoure et d'humanité, face à une société hypocrite et bureaucratisée, notre société en réalité.
