It is a pastiche of apartheid era South Africa with District 9 serving as Soweto. It was kind of obvious I thought. Fantastic film imo for the black humour in how the whole relocation process was planned etc.

My latest film thought was the modern remake of Total Recall.. Wow, what a shocker. The original was a great film, this one not so much.
