We said it before and we’ll say it again: District 9 was the action movie no one expected and everyone wanted this year (though Avatar is moving its way up there). Peter Jackson and director Neill Blomkamp have created a original masterpiece around a not-too unfamiliar concept, apartheid in the country that made the word infamous, South Africa.
Chocked with special effects (can you really get over the first time they fire the alien assault rifle?), surround sound goodies, and cinemetography itching for Blu-ray, District 9 belongs in your library. Just don’t blame us when you start feeling empathy for the “bloody prawns”.
