District 9


The whole movie was under raps until it was released and I think it was easy to keep it under raps because all the cast were new actors or actors who never were in a major picture.

The lead actor , Sharlto Copley did such a phenomenal job!  He effortlessly went from a nobody, to a person drunk on power to a unlikly hero.

District 9

The aliens , who looked wicked, landed on earth and they were put in a refugee camp for over 20 years which turned into a ghetto were crime thrived.

The movie discusses xenophobia and social segregation and according to Wikipedia “It was inspired by historical events that took place in South Africa during the apartheid in a residential area of Cape Town named District Six.”

A message that resonated with me is that everybody are capable of racism even if they suffered from racism themselves.

Loved it and I will buy it and I hope there will be a sequel 😀 .
