District-9 About
District 9

A solid popcorn-action-movie, yet highly emotional and sociocritical. Dark, yet very enjoyable. Sharlto Copley is wonderful in the lead and both the adult alien and his son are adorable. The 'we-fear-what-we-don’t-know' aspect was very intriguing as well as the comparism of media coverage with 'real life experience', pointing out the manipulative potential of media.
