This week's reviewed movie is:
District 9

All you should know about District 9 is it's a science fiction movie about controlling aliens from another world who have invaded Johannesburg, South Africa and have been there for 20 years.

Things are getting out of control and the government is trying to move them all to another location, called District 10.

This is no average run-of-the-mill alien invasion film, and I really recommend it highly and consider it to be one of the most different stories -- told with surprising new twists.

District 9 is a unique sci-fi done in a faux documentary style.

Alien immigrants arrive on Earth, and humans put them in a shelter that eventually becomes a ghetto.

As racism and crime escalate, a huge multi-national corporation (and weapons manufacturer) decides it's time to move the aliens to a new facility.

It's sci-fi mixed with humor and social commentary, as both tension and smart filmmaking come into play.

It's a tense, tight, and completely fresh look at alien invasion and its aftermath.

Producer Peter Jackson thinks the movie District 9 is "unlike anything you've ever seen."

It has a mix of documentary and dramatized scenes.

This is a science fiction message film that's stuffed with great effects and plot twists that outdo all the old alien invasion flicks of the past.

The tale has depth and thought-provoking ideas with more than enough space for shoot-outs, explosions, and R-rated violence.
