    Default District 9

    Anyone seen it? What did you think of it ?

    I found it to be a poor movie, reminded me of B grade movie from the 80's , the lead in was too long and slow, it seemed like they got 1/2 into the movie with the lead in and realised that they needed to do the rest of the movie so rushed it

    and geez then there was the wide window for district 10

    Me and my fiance started to watch it but we did not like how they filmed it, like a documetary so we did not se the whole movie.

    Woah, I have heard the exact opposite about this movie. I haven't seen it myself, I find it hard to find time for movies these days.

    I seen it, I loved it, it was tense, well directed and the acting well it was deliberate obviously meant to be doco stlye, but the film was great that lead keffer acted his heart out, the cinematography was great.

    The story obviously not believable but I really got into it and the overriding theme appeared to me to reflect current day Africa, will refugees and military contractors.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

    great movie.. explores the notion of morality, testing of weapons/items on animals/humans and looks at various sections of the apartheid...

    was quite smart - swapping the african form for a 'prawn' as it reduced race/gender bias and made the viewer think more than just the surface...

    as a final year psychology student I walked away with a plethora of ideas for my dissertation haha

    i agree with josh and beer, i actually wanted to see it again. i agree the lead in was a little bit slow however.

    Great & highly enjoyable film - one of its kind in this genera. It was extremely well made relative to its budget, too.

    One of the best movies of the year, period. Great fresh idea. Great acting considering there was nobody in it.

    Ive never understood people saying movies are to slow to get started. Have we all lost our patience ?
