district-9-marketing-posterJust got back from District 9, I gotta say it sure wasn’t what I expected.

From the viral campaign and press it did seem that it would be much creepier but other that a creepy shoot’em up Sci-fi flick crawling with evil aliens ready to attack from the shadows District 9 let the aliens be seen from the get go and takes a bit of the mystery out of them.  Honestly the marketing movies were a little better than the actual movie itself.

The aliens are still creepy looking but are not overly hostile (except on occasion) now that is not to say the movie does not have plenty of blood shed but most of it comes from one of the humans (spoiler alert) and not the aliens.

Surprisingly the film had a lot of heart to it and a good dose of humor to offset the drama.

My recommendation:

See it with an open mind but the squeamish may want to close their eyes at times!
