Uphill battle
17 January 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the only documentary on the DVD of District 9(in fact, other than the commentary track, there's no other special features), and the three parts put together are 33 minutes without credits(34 and a half with) in total. It consists of interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, clips of the movie and artwork from production. This is about creating the picture, and the challenges of the various first-timers(Blomkamp, moving on from shorts, and even getting the chance to work on his own idea, and one he was passionate about, on this first big break, and Copley, who is now getting big roles, such as his memorable turn in The A-Team), their approach to the FX(not letting them take over), the hand-held cinematography and why it is important, the editing, and the many on-set physical performances of people who are then replaced with "CGI bugs". Everyone has something to say, and this is almost entirely informational(as opposed to promotional, the boring lovefest that is supposed to get you to watch, whether or not what is said is true or not). They keep it moving nicely throughout. I recommend this to any fan of the film itself. 7/10
