The undertones of District 9 are still very clear with the South African influence throughout which probably takes a bit to adjust to much like District 9.

Foster plays less of a role than imagined yet still commanding. A descent watch but not as good as I had hoped for, quite a thought provoking movie all the same. When you leave a movie with more questions than when you came in you know the film maker succeeded
