This one was completely unkown to me. I recorded it last weekend and watched it yesterday evening.

IMO a really good sci-fi movie with some gritty humour. Action is a little overblown at the end, but really fun to watch.

Highly recommended.

Yes I saw it on cable without knowing much about it and was pleasntly surprised by it. I thought the lead actor did a pretty good job, and he was in the A-Team movie as Mudock.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. It was refreshing to see a sci-fi film set in a country besides the US for once but then again, District 9 wasn't a Hollywood film.

Do you like sci-fi films such as 2001 and Gattaca?

Yeah,

I know I come up AGAIN like someone who lives on the other side of the moon, but this one really got under my radar, never ever even heard about it. Saw it in my TV mag with a thumbs up and recorded it.
