With that all said, I still thought the movie was entertaining and I smell a new sci-fi franchise coming because the movie left a lot of things open for a possible sequel or even prequel. If you didn't already know, the basic premise of this movie which I pulled from IMDB is: An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology. The alien creatures were very creepy looking and a job well done by the Weta Workshop for their amazing visual effects. If you are a sci-fi fan, I'm sure you have already seen this movie. If not, it's definitely your cup of tea.
Grade: B (Did not meet expectations, and should not have been nominated for the big prize at the Oscars. Thanks to the new rule of 10 nominated films, District 9 gets recognized.)
