District 9 Film Review

An alien occupation in South Africa, filmed as a real life documentary, with a little bit too much wobble cam. Its a story of racism and segregation between humans and aliens. After 20 years the humans get fed up with the alien camp at District 9 and want them moved 200 miles away to a new concentration camp. The underlying story is actually that of human greed and how we simply want to exploit the alien technology and weapons and make money out of governments willing to pay for them. A long film which drags in the middle and could do with 20mins being chopped off, but does get to a rather touching climax. More of a DVD job than cinema though, and like most film reviews we've seen it looks like you'll love/hate this film.
