Despite its creativity, the movie remains space opera and avoids the higher realms of science-fiction.
(Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)
There is a lot of shield-your-eyes ickiness in District 9, a lot of violence and gore. What there is not a lot of, however, is humanity - even in the film's depiction of the inhumanity humans are capable of.
(Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer)
Yes, the premise is delightful; no, the delight doesn't last.
(Rick Groen, Globe and Mail)
