Directed by NEIL BLOMKAMP
Starring SHARLTO COPLEY and JASON COPE
'District 9' was one of the best, most original, science fiction films I have ever seen. However, it's bloody, bloody, bloody-- bring your goggles. I almost couldn't take some of the gore, but overall the movie was incredible and I've never seen anything like it before. This is what sci-fi is supposed to be--cutting edge, unpredictable, mind-blowing...
Plot: An extraterrestrial race referred to as "Prawns" are forced to live in South African slums after their spaceship crashes. They are treated poorly, manipulated, abused, and experimented on. Wikus (Copley) is originally sent to relocate the Prawn, but eventually becomes sympathetic to their plight through an unusual set of circumstances. Brilliant, brilliant, film.
