I saw this film the other day at the cinema and i was quite impressed. It got a bit ridiculous towards the end and it seemed a bit like ‘Transformers meets Alien’ or something. However, i think this film portrays quite a strong message. The fact that it is set in Johannesburg and not New York or London or somewhere is a big statement. The film is basically based around discrimination towards the aliens who are all living in slums with terrible conditions. However, i think Neill Blomkamp is trying to get a message across to the people of South Africa to try and stop discrimination between the different races of people. A strong statement in my eyes, whether its supposed to be that, i don’t know?
