District 9

In Theatre : August 14, 2009
Director(s): Neill Blomkamp

Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth. Humans waited for the hostile attack, or the giant advances in technology. Neither came. Instead, the aliens were refugees, the last survivors of their home world. The creatures were set up in a makeshift home in South Africa’s District 9 as the world’s nations argued over what to do with them.

Now, patience over the alien situation has run out. Control over the aliens has been contracted out to Multi-National United (MNU), a private company uninterested in the aliens’ welfare – they will receive tremendous profits if they can make the aliens’ awesome weaponry work. So far, they have failed; activation of the weaponry requires alien DNA.

The tension between the aliens and the humans comes to a head when an MNU field operative, Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), contracts a mysterious virus that begins changing his DNA. Wikus quickly becomes the most hunted man in the world, as well as the most valuable – he is the key to unlocking the secrets of alien technology. Ostracized and friendless, there is only one place left for him to hide: District 9.

District 9 Review by thegoldensimatar

First, let me give a thank you to Peter Jackson for giving Neill Blomkamp the ability to make this film.  Thank you Neill Blomkamp for creating the one of the best films of the summer and certainly one of the finest...
District 9 Review by Googopqp

There are been a lot of talk and anticipation for this movie, but no one really knows what this movie is or is going to be. I saw it just recently and it was completely different than let out to be. But it was still a ve...

District 9 (2009) Review by Gardenofstone10

District 9 Review by AgingHorrorFan

I know I'm a bit late in seeing this -- making me the last person on the planet to see it I'm sure -- but better late than never! This is a great movie, the best of the year. And that's saying something given The Hurt Lo...
District 9 (2009) Review by the5thdroog

Went to see this film based off raving reviews on our site and have to say I was not dissapointed. District 9 is well written, well directed, gorey and distinct and is easily the scifi alien invasion movie of the year.. ...
District 9 Review by alex1176

"District 9" is a film of many forms. It starts out like a mocumentary version of "Alien Nation", morphs into Cronenberg's "The Fly" (no pun intended) and than strangely becomes "Iron Man" for the climax. The movie (prod...

District 9 (Review) Review by Psyko113

It's been a dry season or two for horror/sci-fi films. Even worse, it's been a bad run for good films in general.But all that seems to be changing with "District 9."This alien film, I'll admit upon first seeing the initi...
