District 9

You are not welcome here.


District 9
Twenty years ago, an alien ship appeared over Johannesburg. The aliens were refugees, and they were housed in a squalid camp. The camp is now overcrowded, so the authorities hire a company to relocate the aliens somewhere far from humans. The official in charge manages to spray himself with some alien DNA, and soon starts morphing into something that is half-human, half alien. Realising his life is at risk, he seeks refuge amongst the aliens, where his eyes are opened to the reality of life from their point of view, before the final showdown.

Box Office
Tim Cogshell quote iconAn Alien invasion movie that is intense, graphically novelistic (though it’s an original story) and just funny enough to keep you thoroughly entertained, even while the subtext is of a very serious nature.
13
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconDistrict 9 does a lot of things right.
15
eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconA well-shot but banal hybrid of Halo (super-cool weapons blasting away in a ruined landscape) and E.T. (the aliens just want to go home).

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconPulls the viewer along for what turns out to be a fairly engaging, exciting and both eye and mind-opening cinematic experience.
