“Diferente do que eu experava posso falar que me surpreendi. Um filme de ficção científica envolvendo aliens diferente do normal e com um lado mais sensível de toda a ação. Com um roteiro original e um elenco muito bom, posso falar que toda expectativa que eu criei em cima do filme valeu muito a pena.” read more

Promising fluff

“District 9 is a very good film for fourty minutes. During that time it creates a very clever and inventive parallel to the apartheid that took place in Capetown in the 70s. During this time director Neill Blomkamp is clearly making a film about things important to him and to me atleast they transmitted from the screen as such. If District 9 had continued being such a personal picture for the remained of it's running time, it would have been stonking great. Alas, we get the last half of the film. It's just mindless action fun where aliens and humans get shot into bloody pulps via guns that shoot lightning. Had there been shurikens involved, it would've been more fun. However it still would've been complete and utter nonsense of a climax compared to the set-up of the entire flick. The nonsen” read more

"Probably the most interesting sci-fi movie in the last 10 years."


Fabricio Mendes posted a review 4 years, 10 months ago

"District 9" dá um novo conceito sobre "SciFi"

“Um filme de ficção científica inovador mostra que os extraterrestres também podem ser parecidos com humanos, com muitas cenas de ação e vários recursos de "mockumentary". O filme ficou interessante ao público porém é um filme para pensar sobre o tema e-x-t-r-a-t-e-r-r-e-s-t-r-e. Também podem ser encontradas várias referências a outros filmes com "A Mosca" e "Independence Day" mas o que achei mais incrível foi uma espécie de "Scarface" robotizado, com direito a levar um tiro nas costas para parar de funcionar após ser metralhado.” read more

The District you can visit.

“''I mean, you can't say they don't look like that, that's what they look like, right? They look like prawns.''

An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology.

Sharlto Copley: Wikus Van De Merwe

It's safe to say District 9 is a breath of fresh air in terms of originality mixed with familiarity. New ideas of sci-fi, documentary filming, and action-packed scenes are all merged together here in seamlessly sewn entertainment.

District 9 offers us a new world of vision and clarity. We have a UFO hovering over Johannesburg in South Africa, not a typical Hollywood location set in the obvious US, because lets face it, this is not a typical” read more

District 9

“Before it descends into a “shit goes boom real pretty!” action film, District 9 is a glorious return to brainy science-fiction. The continuing cutaways to talking heads and news footage only enhances the viewing experience. How? They ground the aliens in a real world setting, in a real world plot. Complete with allusions to the awkward and fear-based racial tensions that mark just about every nation. This is grand summer entertainment that doesn’t come around often enough.

The special effects and makeup are fantastic. Top notch really. More proof that huge budgets don’t always equal better production values. This film was made on the near cheap ($30 million isn’t much for a film of this scope) but it looks three times as expensive, if not more. The shot towards the end ” read more

OK but not great

“Missed ‘Alien Nation’ and its arrival of an Alien slave ship on Earth the first time round? Well the good news is that this is almost a remake, that is if the Aliens landed in South Africa and were more insectoid in appearance. District 9 is partially filmed in that terrible Cloverfield/documentary style, so you learn from the start that key figures survive and life doesn’t change too much in the future – like the perfect episode of a TV series (always end the way you start). This slow start and documentary style lessens the potential tension, but does make the story a little more believable.

In this movie Aliens come to Earth and instead of making us think about our place in the universe, or changing the world for the better, nothing changes and we treat them terribly, ” read more

Briefly

“As each Sci-fi movie, District 9 is based on the brutal reality of today. The only objection is that the first 20 minutes of introduction to the film's plot is too long, all it could fit in two to three minutes.

All in all, the film is below the average for all lovers of science fiction.” read more

“Thought it was mighty fine. Always fun to see aliens that look and act alien. And once again, the only real monsters are the home grown variety. It'll be fun to see how widely the Academy ignores it come nomination time, except for one or two token technical nominations. Oh, that's right, there'll be room this year for it in Best Picture, etc...that way everyone can feel good that they included it in the nomination when they vote for something most people haven't seen and probably never will for the win.

As for the 'open' ending...well, a sequel wouldn't necessarily be the end of the world. Or would it?” read more

What's with the camera??

“Sci-fi at it's best this year. Takes the typical alien invasion movie that we've seen umpteenth times and puts it's own unique take on it. What prevents the movie from really soaring is the unfortunate decision of the director to shoot in a faux documentary style throughout. The grand scale of cinema is one of the things that differentiates it from television and the camera confines the movie and robs it of drama and grandeur. For large swathes of the movie, I felt like I was watching a made for television movie. Still, it's originality makes up for a lot of it's shortcomings.” read more

Honey, I Might Have Shit In My Pants... SURPRISE!!

“Presented and produced by New Zealand's own Peter Jackson is the new Sci-Fi flick entitled "District 9". Somewhat of a different tale involving the co-existance of both man and alien beings, or lack there of. In the not-so-distant future, a giant spaceship enters the earth's atmoshpere right above Southern Africa and 1.8 million aliens later, the company who controls the alien residency carries out a plan to re locate them all in smaller, crappier land just outside Johannesburg; where people who are fed up withthem can live without the "Prawn" or Non-Humans around them. An MNU field operative named Wikus van der Merwe is put in position to start the eviction, and a few houses (and pissed off non humans) into executing the plan, he discovers some sort of tube which captivates him to study i” read more

Proof of intelligent life in the film universe...

“"There's a lot of secrets in District 9..."

District 9, the searing debut feature of South African director Neill Blomkamp, is a summer flick of a rare breed: it's a science fiction movie with depth and provocative ideas that also leaves space for violence and action. With heavyweight New Zealand moviemaker Peter Jackson serving as producer, this excellent low-budget sci-fi actioner (which stars no well-known actors) has drawn a lot of attention in the lead-up to its release. And, for those concerned, it surpasses its hype with aplomb. Lensed with a staggering degree of immediacy, District 9 grasps an unoriginal premise and adds innovation, producing the most compelling and cerebral science fiction movie to hit cinemas for years. It's definitive proof that a successful summer ext” read more

"HOLY CRAP! What an intense, fucking awesome movie! This is what I'm talking about! Characters are compelling, narrative is engaging, it's packed with throught-provoking ideas...and yet it's full of absolutely incredible action. This little $30 million blockbuster outshows virtually all summer blockbusters of the 2009 season - not the least the disastrous new Transformers. This is proof that a satisfying summer blockbuster doesn't need to break the bank during its production period. I'll be kee"
