Storyline

In the midst of a terrorist-induced crisis the United States has declared martial law. Privatized defense forces and a state-of-the-art drone patrol system now monitor citizens and locate any new terrorist activities. Patterson Endcott, a computer scientist and drone pilot, is put on a hit list due to his religious beliefs and increasing doubt in the morality of his job. He and his sister, Samantha Endcott, are forced to find a place of safety beyond the watchful eyes of the surveillance drones. Considered a top level security threat by the government, the two are pursued by super soldiers, called Erasers, to capture them dead or alive. Written by Iain Carson

District 9 from a Combat Angle
25 May 2015 | by in1984See all my reviews

8.1 of 10. The film's summary doesn't really do it justice or capture the film adequately. Part of the reason is that it's clearly lacking the big production and marketing money. That's noticed in the video FX to some extent, but not the cheap stuff you get off a TV quickie. It still very much deserves to be in theaters.

In addition to focusing more on the combat and people doing the combat more than the technology versus District 9 (2009), it's also a modern-day, this-could-be-happening-now war film. There's virtually nothing in this that doesn't already exist and the world is essentially as-is except for being at war. The similarities are sometimes scary in the closeness and the deliberate, unambiguous way they are pointed out in the film.

What's missing is, as mentioned, some more realistic video FX and also some of the subtlety and plot setup done in films with more writers and development time. There are also a few unnecessary clichés, like ridiculous gun fights involving soldiers with automatic, armor piercing weapons and normal people where no one is getting hit and bullets are all but infinite. Despite the budget, the cast is well selected and comes through with solid acting.
