District 9

An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology.

In 1982, a massive star ship bearing a bedraggled alien population, nicknamed "The Prawns," appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa. Twenty-eight years later, the initial welcome by the human population has faded. The refugee camp where the aliens were located has deteriorated into a militarized ghetto called District 9, where they are confined and exploited in squalor. In 2010, the munitions corporation, Multi-National United, is contracted to forcibly evict the population with operative Wikus van der Merwe in charge. In this operation, Wikus is exposed to a strange alien chemical and must rely on the help of his only two new 'Prawn' friends.

Local IS lekker!

Ek het die film 3 keer by die flieks gaan kyk en is bitterlik trots op die vermoens in hierdie land om so iets van wereldklas gehalte te maak. Knap gedaan mense!!!

Is hierie local is lekker??!!

Wat 'n heerlike verrassing om 'n professionele, oortuigende, innoverende toekomsfiksie film te sien op ons eie bodem (darem met Peter Jackson se formidabele hulp)Charlto Coply as die nerdy Afrikaanse burokraat is deksels oortuigend en die "praws" afskuwelik menslik. Iets heeltemal anders, verdien al die lofbetuiginge en Oscar nominasies. Never a dull moment, hoewel die einde bietjie afgeskaal kon gewees het, soos hulle se, less is sometimes more! Maar go for it - dis fun en dis goed gedoen
