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. Written by

When Wikus is in the sub-level MNU HQ firing range, and when they are fitting his HUMAN (right) hand to the AMR-B21 directed energy weapon, the thumb and index fingers have intact thumb and finger nails. In the office space after returning from field operatioms, Wikus picks at his right hand index finger and the nail falls off. He then visits the restroom where his thumbnail is pulled free when he tugs on [it] with his teeth. Both expose a red "quick". Then as mentioned above, the nails are perfectly manicured in the MNU HQ basement firing range. See more »
I recently attending a promotional screening of District 9. I would like to give my opinion of the film, but not any of the plot or details.
I went into the theater basically only knowing the genre of the film, being exposed just to the minimal "humans only" ads. While I watching the film, I immediately wanted to view it again. It is intriguing and highly entertaining, with a dynamic characters and rich in both humor and action. Once it ended, my friends and I chattered excitedly about the numerous aspects we liked. As cliché as it may be, there are parts of this film that will stay with you.
When it is released, I will be waiting with everyone else to see it again!!!
