District 9

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: "District 9" keeps many of its surprises hidden. When it does unleash them, it's an incredible display of action and social commentary that blows the audience away. This is one of the best sci-fi films I've seen since "The Matrix" in terms of originality and immersing the audience in a new world.

District 9

Fragland
17 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Buitenaardse wezens zijn eindelijk op Aarde aanbeland maar in plaats van de geavanceerde mensachtige wezens die we steeds verwacht hadden zijn het garnaal-achtige wezens die dringend hulp nodig hebben aangezien hun complete leiding blijkbaar dood is gegaan en ze op het punt staan om uitgehongerd te zijn. De mensheid besluit om ze te helpen maar twintig jaar later begint de sleur erin te komen en begint de goedheid van de mensen serieus te minderen.

In Theaters: District 9

  • Excerpt: There's so much that's good about District 9 -- so much thought, so much technical virtuosity, so much energy and pitch-black humor and narrative meat and visual detail and giddy-making sci-fi adventure -- that my first inclination is to suggest that you stop reading about it and just see the damn thing.

District 9

8 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Science fiction has been covered from every conceivable angle that you can possibly think of, particularly over the last couple of decades.  So it’s refreshing to know that there are still some relatively original and thought-provoking ideas left in a system that is currently remaking and re-imagining everything to death.

District 9

High-Def Digest
11 January 2010
  • Conclusion: 'District 9' had me curious with its trailer, but nothing could have prepared me for the trip that the film is, a fantastic blend of intelligence and action. The replay value is infinite, as I found it to grow better with each and every viewing. This Blu-ray sports fantastic video and audio, and a healthy pile of extras. Based on the strength of the film and the disc, this is a must own title if ever there was one.

Review: District 9

The 8th Circuit
17 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The movie, as you probably know, centers around an alternate reality in which an alien craft of some kind came to settle over Johannesburg, South Africa 28 years ago, and is unable to move. The citizens of the ship, referred to as “prawns,” because of their odd features, have settled into a shanty town located under the floating ship, known as District 9.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
13 August 2009
  • Excerpt: "District 9" is a compelling film of original and insightfully speculative science-fiction. An intelligent and inventive story not only keeps us enthralled, but also provides an allegorically fascinating social commentary. The filmmaker effectively combines interviews and archival footage to bring a gritty and immersive realism to screen. Intertwined in the 'mockumentary' style are vaporizing (at times literally) action sequences that both dazzle and entertain.

District 9 (Blu-ray)

discshop.se
5 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Det finns väl inte många åskådare som inte ser likheterna med Sydafrikas apartheidpolitik och samma lands fiktiva inställning till besökare från en annan värld. District 9 kunde lika väl handla om en verklighet där slummen och dess invånare blir en allt större böld för stadens välbärgade makthavare av annan kulör. Johannesburg får än en gång vara centrum för diskriminering, etniskt våld och hat mot dem som inte är, tja, mänskliga. Denna gång.

District 9

Nöjesguiden
13 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I District 9:s alternativa verklighet landade utomjordingar i Sydafrika på åttiotalet. Dessa insektsliknande varelser mottogs ungefär lika väl som en skäggig arab på väg genom USA:s passkontroll och har sedan dess tvingats bo i slum-områden. Två decennier senare ska hela kolonin, nu en miljonbefolkning, flyttas och när en privat organisation hyrs in för att göra jobbet svämmar känslorna över.
