This movie is just really crappy. So crappy that I made an account to say how crappy it is. Horrible plot, an ending that almost seems like it was never finished, and non memorable characters.

This is the most overhyped movie I've watched in memory. The great failing of District 9 is not its actors, nor its directing (though it is questionable), but the terrible writing. The plot is far too full of holes for a movie that This is the most overhyped movie I've watched in memory. The great failing of District 9 is not its actors, nor its directing (though it is questionable), but the terrible writing. The plot is far too full of holes for a movie that takes itself so seriously. I'm fine with accepting the premise that desperate aliens came to Earth, but everything that took place in the story after their arrival made no sense. The characters were simply cartoon cutouts--the only significant character who wasn't an inane plot device was the main protagonist, and even he was given short shrift by the screenplay. If you want some action, you'll find it, and it won't completely bore you. If you want to see a well thought-out story that actually affects more than your basest emotions, you will be disappointed.

One of the worst flicks I have ever seen, if there wasn't 2 feet of global warming outside I wouldn't have sat through this crap... I cannot believe the user rating score on this move. Why didn't I watch Hangover twice instead One of the worst flicks I have ever seen, if there wasn't 2 feet of global warming outside I wouldn't have sat through this crap... I cannot believe the user rating score on this move. Why didn't I watch Hangover twice instead of this once. Expand

An ugly, post-modern yet ramshackle and banjaxed picture that sidesteps convention so often it risks falling into the well that "Limits of Control" is currently drowning in.
