Very powerful and touching story line filled with alot of gore and action scenes aswell with alot of adult comedy. But personally i really think this film should have been an 18. The story line leaves it open for a sequel, and i would pay to watch this again, and i will be purchasing the DVD. A must see.
The story is about a huge ship appearing over johannas burg and doing nothing for 3 months, humans (not able to gain access) cut there way into the ship, to find all the aliens aboard are ill and dying. A refugee camp is set up to care for the ill aliens, 20 years later it has become a slum with the humans in charge. Crime and poverty starts in the area and around it so the humans begin evicting aliens to a camp outside of johannasburg with newer facilities. An organisation (which name escapes me) is put in charge of the operation. The man in charge, whilst evicting an alien finds a canister, he picks this up and its sprays a black substance at him. He falls ill and a starts to vomit strangley. He slowly starts to turn into one of these creatures starting with his arm (which was injured in a previous eviction). This makes him very valuable as hs DNA is balanced between Alien and Human. The Humans have managed to obtain many alien weapons but they require the user to have Alien DNA only, and therefor humans cannot use them. However the man in charge can use them, he quickly becomes very valuable to humans and hunted, the only place he can hide is district 9. A must see!
