District 9 is one of the shittiest, most ignorant movies I have ever seen in my life! The Director and Producers are apparently very ignorant about South Africans and Nigerians, especially Nigerians. The atrocities they said Nigerians were involved in in that movie was ARRANT NONSENSE and Non-existent.
The actors that were portrayed as Nigerian thugs were not Nigerians, they all spoke a language foreign to any of the languages in Nigeria and couldn't even fake the Nigerian accent. It was very pathetic.
What is wrong with some people? It is so wrong to make up fictitious information about a country and its people because, other people with no knowledge of Nigeria and its people would assume we were like that.
I thought all reputable producers and directors thoroughly researched about a country/people they have no knowledge about???? They apparently didn't know what they were doing because they were all over the place in the movie. The story line was shitty, they couldn't get their acts right, they were completely confused about where they wanted the movie to go, et al.
The movie was set up in Johannesburg (South Africa) but all they talked about were Nigerians. They portrayed Jo'burg as an impoverished and ugly city, which is VERY FAR from the truth. Jo'burg has slums just like every other country in the world does, but the city is VERY VERY beautiful unlike its portrayal in the movie.
I am VERY disappointed in the lack of research by the makers of the movie and I honestly feel sorry for their ignorance.
Again, District 9 is the shittiest movie of the year! Congratulations.
