The film takes a dramatic shift in tone 45 minutes into it – what was once a comical romp now turns into a full-blown action film. Thankfully I was able to adjust to the dramatic shift but I can see how it might put off some people.
I’m trying to figure out what went wrong with District 9. I’ve taken into consideration the fact that nearly everyone who’s seen it has told me how much they liked it. I’ve taken into consideration the fact that normally I hate everything everyone likes. I’ve even taken into consideration the fact that I’ve been on a hating streak of movies as of late.
