District 9 - otherwise known as another Half Life 2 mod

Genre: Action & Adventure
Watching this show is a bit like waiting for a firework display. It seems to take forever. You spend most of your time waiting for things to happen... the storyline doesn't seem to make much sense. Then BANG!!!!! It all comes together and just when it seems its finished - the real fireworks begins and by golly, its awesome.

So what is it about? Well, its a bit like a story from the pc game, Half Life, man meets creepy looking aliens+and there is a conspiracy. There are these strange creatures which have got powerful weaponery which they use to exchange for cat food (no kidding). I guess this "game" was set to dead EASY noob setting.

Along comes a man - like Freeman (from Half Life) and yeah, well I won't spoil the rest of the story.

So half star for the plot. Half star for the flying pig, 1 star for the exoskeleton mechwarrior stolen from the AppleSeed Manga series, and 2 stars for the fight sequence.

This movie gives me hope. Hope that a kickass movie series (with hopefully a believable and interesting plot) on Appleseed, or Mechwarrior will come out one day.


If you don't know what AppleSeed is about read here:
Contains nudity and violence
