Excerpt: i found it better then Independence day and thats saying alot theres so many amazing things about D9 that just blows me away. the visual effects were speechless. the emotional connection between aliens & humans was incredible i found the film to be a very slap in the face to the government appeal...

Excerpt: this is a sweet movie all around, the only problem i have is that the CGI isn't consistant. Sometimes you can barely tell that the prawn are fake but, then sometimes its obvious. But this is awesome
