review on District 9

Woots! I just came back from the screening of District 9 at Cineleisure! All thanks to Sony Pictures.

It was not an ordinary movie, with lots of strong and firm values it in.

Not those kinda Aliens invade Earth movie where you would see war declared between both sides and president of US negotiating and such, Nope not those. The whole time line of the story in this movie have a total span of 20+ years with an unknown giant alien aircraft appearing in the sky in South Africa at the start of the movie.

The rest of the story i shall leave it to you yourself to go and find out in the cinema. =)

Basicly, the themes of this movie are quite well translated and it was pretty much into many hearts i believe when the world is going to watch it when it is officially out.

It was about 2 sides and which sides are you at. The main character of this movie, who was originally on the human side was caught in the middle negotiating on behalf of the humans changed sides later on. Unwillingly of course but there is no other way.
*sounds like Sarah Kerrigan for me. xD if you know who she is

What message does it brings to you, that is up to you to translate then. Hmm.

It just reminds me of the political scene of Malaysia though especially this one person who was once the deputy prime minister of Malaysia. I call him A.I. Lets not start on that then, watch it then you'll get the picture!

Anyways with the way on how they film the gun fights and such with alien weaponry, it was very realistic and i'm sure you'll get Wow when you watch them. Of course, siu mui mui and siu di di below the age 18 are advise to be with their parents when they watch it. Its pretty violent i must say. Involve lotsa blood here and there.

and for those who are going to watch it, expect a rather dull period at the start of the movie and it would be more and more interested later on. Oh and i must say that not everyone would accept this movie. =)

My Rating for this movie is 7/10.

Sean Weatherby said...

D-9 definitely has a lot going for it -- character development, great acting a at least a few people, awesome alien weapons; it felt a bit preachy at times at different times though

joshuaongys said...

> Sean Weatherby : yea for a movie like this that have a cast which is not so well known, it turned out to be a Wow for lotsa ppl out there with all the realistic scenes and such. Cant agree much on the bit of preachy parts in the movie =)
