good movie. first half was a bit slow.

now why didn't the aliens just kill the nigerians and/or everyone else with their weaponry. don't trade em for catfood. and wikus needs to learn how to use that suit. abuse that lightning cannon(?!? ), the taser thing, and those rocket launchers please.

edit: good point (below) blushing and it would've ruined the movie lol.

Well they were stranded on another planet. they have a limited population, I wouldn't want to wage war against an entire planet. you gotta remember that human weapons could do as much harm to them as alien weapons to humans.

That's how they addressed current human nature; the greed of one's own selfish benefits.


I never really noticed that. I noticed human natures own greed through Wikkus's father in law, The MNU and the Nigerian Gangster. I felt sympathetic for Wikkus till his own greed made him knock Christopher out. but that all changed when he had a change of heart and went suicidal Rambo on the mercenaries.

I didn't like the ending. The movie was too short.

I don't understand how the aliens and humans can understand each other. I missed the first 15 minutes.

It explained towards the beginning that this was just the worker class of aliens. They didn't really know how to think for themselves or how to organize.

First 15 minutes answers a lot of questions that people keep calling "plot holes." The aliens have been there for nearly 30 years. In 30 years it's certainly possible they could learn to understand each others language but they might not be able to speak each others language because of the physical sounds they make.

20 years actually, lol

From the official site:

"Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth."

It was a fresh take on alien/sci-fi genre while mixing in some tongue in cheek looks at the current state of the world.

Those who didn't enjoy it probably are the types who thought GI JOE was good.


G.I. Joe SUCKS! Had potential but still sucked ass. District 9> G.I. Joe. But yes the reason why this movie was good is the meaning behind it.

great movie, kinda emotional in the end

i want him to make a sequel, and a part of me kinda wants him to not

the movi was so awesome, i love when wikkus catches the rocket to save christophers ship in the mech suit


and when he says "fook"blushing

I thought the movie was great, a totally new concept on alien films. Somewhat a documentary, can't wait for the sequelsmokeyface

saw this film last night, dope as hell. it was a bit boring at the start, the build up made it feel really long. as soon as wikus got sprayed by that shit i knew what was gonna happen to him, so obvious.

they'll blatently make a sequal, like 3 years later when christopher goes to save wikus or some shit.

i need one of those alien guns
Sep 08, 2009 @ 06:11
and turn into a prawn to operate them?

I still can't get over the mech suit. that thing was insane on "auto pilot" or "auto defense". makes you think though, if the mech had the ability to gather bullets and spray it back and wikkus witnessed it. why didn't he do that himself? I did like it when he went all Gundam Heavy Arms on em.

seriously this movie had it all. i enjoyed every second of it

great movie!! but the beginning almost made me not want to watch it...
Sep 21, 2009 @ 15:06
great movie. although i hoped for some more closure at the end....sequel anyone?
Sep 21, 2009 @ 23:55
This movie in genius. It never felt like a movie and made it seem like Aliens inhabiting the world could be pretty logical. Best film I've seen in a long time.
