District 9 – “Has the movie started?”

To be honest, this is my first time watching a Cloverfield/Blair Witch Project type of show. It felt so much like a documentary in the beginning, it made me felt like the movie has yet to start. Lots of talking, introduction and pretty much nothing made sense. But slowly, piecing bits of information together, you get a rough idea what’s going to happen, which is always good when you’ve no idea where is the movie is heading.

I felt the beginning was very much an “are we there yet?” moment. It only got interesting from midway and then only the ball started rolling. Then came the truth, the climax – rescuing the package, getting out of there and surviving.

The part that caught my attention was the unbelievable firepower of the alien weapons.. CRAZY SHIT. I had lots of wtf moments and lol moments with the weapons’ capabilities.. Wicked! Alien technology rocks.

Sorry geekspeak.

The movie also reminds me a lot of an old movie, The Fly (1986) which had a similar story but it had prawns instead.

The protective sister said it had better storyline than Startrek but I felt it was so-so. I’d watch Startrek again but this, maybe will only start from the part where weapons were drawn.

I give this a 3/5 star – but because of the slow hype. Watch, but try not to doze off in the first 45 minutes. Enjoy the visual effects if you’re a geek! :D

Shout out to Euveng for the tickets!
