a large alien spacecraft came to earth n hovered in the sky. a team entered the ship n found many sick extraterrestrials. they were given food, shelter n care on Earth, n was assigned to live in a confined area called District 9. as the time passed, some aliens n humans showed discomfort of having each other in their territory. the MNU (Multi National United) was hired to relocate the aliens to a new area called District 10, led by Wikus n Piet. 3 aliens was secretly searching for an alien technology where mysterious fluid were stored in a small bottle. Wikus later discovered the bottle n accidentally sprayed some onto his face. the mysterious fluid made Wikus felt ill n soon he transformed into one of the aliens. Wikus was later forced to test out the alien weapons. he escaped in the process n seek refuge in District 9. he found out from that the fluid was able to reactivate the mothership. to do that, he had to steal the bottle that MNU took.
the best part of the film was being truly original. we waited for it to go wrong any minute, but was surprised to find that it didn't! it managed to stay fresh n surprising until the very end. although the film started with aliens being the bad guys n humans the good, Wikus transformation changed the whole view. like every man, he tried to survive the best he can. him being the connection between humans n aliens was a drastic turn that we didn't see coming. for a film that filled with more unknown faces than known, it was brilliant! it was entertaining n surprisingly humorous.
