Movie Review: District 9

Best Part: The first hour — nice occasional squickiness and the reveal of the backstory was, like, *interesting*.

Biggest Question: Did the dude really think that he’d just fly up to the alien’s ship, get his hand fixed, then fly back home where everything would just be back to normal?

Too Long By: 30 minutes. The last 30 to be more precise. So conventional and disappointing after the killer set-up.

Haiku Synopsis:

Alien slum raid

Helps man learn that aliens

Love their children too.

Critique of the Haiku

The haiku kind of ignores the couple thousand sentient beings that died.

Final Score

6.5/10 — At least it had that first hour.


There will probably be a sequel and it will be *awful*.
