District 9

This post contains spoilers.

I watched District 9 yesterday. It was a good movie. If I had to give criticisms I would say that I didn’t really appreciate the gore. I also thought the ending where the hero sacrifices himself to help someone is quite clich├ęd and very similar to the ending of Blood Diamond. I was also not happy with some of the unanswered questions such as what eventually happened to the hero. I do not like it when moviemakers deliberately leave questions unanswered in order to make a film mysterious.
