Review: District 9
OK so I saw this movie last night and I have to say it was very original. We had to pre-order tickets online because both Tuesday night shows ended up being sold out. This movie clearly has a lot of hype so here is what I thought:
The filming style and effects are the most realistic I have EVER seen in a movie. The way the movie is shot and and way the aliens react to everything is amazing, we have come a long way from Starship Troopers The storyline however could be better, the movie is too gory and the aliens seem way too human-like. This move is definitely style over substance but it's very stylish indeed. Since we showed up 2 minutes late we had to sit in the front row, I guess this added to the experience. To sum it up, great action movie but you won't give it deep thought once you leave the theater
PS...best part of the whole movie the main alien's name was "chris johnson"
