Excerpt: Here is yet another perfect example of what should have been a really interesting concept as a baseline for a great sci-fi movie. Instead we get a story that initially hooks you but then loses focus and eventually drifts off into absurdity. The tip off should have been the fact that to gain any traction, this movie had to have Peter Jackson’s name attached to it (as producer); because most of us have never heard of anyone else in this film.
Summary: The glee of the bureacrat finding non-conformance makes this movie. Ignore the less than subtle South African slum morality tale and one can enjoy this film. Sci-fi fans should be grateful for this one. It combines humor, action, romance, explosions and satisfying machine gun fire into a tight, unified package. I did not catch myself checking my watch once.
Summary: Det er faktisk ikke Jackson som har laget filmen, han har sittet på pengene. Neil Blomkamp har skrevet og regissert, altså laget filmen. Dessuten er samtlige Jackson-filmer fra FØR Rongenes Herre, ypperlige på sin måte. RH og King Kong er ræva.
