I'm a huge fan of District 9 so I was pumped as hell for this. Did it deliver? To a certain extent. It packed all the amazing action that I came to expect after District 9, but it lacked the amazing story and fantastic emotion. Matt Damon is great as per usual, and Sharlto Copely is fucking awesome. Seriously, his performance alone is worth the price of admission. "It's just a flesh wound!". Jodie Foster is good, but she's not given much to work with. She feels like she's there to set up obstacles and advance the story. In fact that's exactly what she's there for.
Overall: The action crackles, the performances are great, and the storyline is good, but not as great as I wanted it to be.
