SLIM SHADY Gontier (heroesfreak) | 254 comments This movie was really well made, and I enjoyed it my dad said it had a sappy story to it but no it was awesome.. I love how it didnt take place in america, it took place in Johannesburg, South Africa. The main actor did a phanominal job and I enjoyed it alot... The camera work reminded me of Cloverfeild and I liked how they made it into like a documentary... what did you think of it?

Phillip | 10544 comments we had a lengthy discussion on it when it came out. if you are going to post something on a film that has been out for some time, just do a quick search and see if there is an existing thread ... just a suggestion. you will find our discussion on this film in the sci-fi folder (not drama).

It took place in Johannesburg because it was a thinly disguised put down of apartheid. Some of the aerial shots of the slum where the aliens were housed was the actual Soweto.

I hated the documentary aspect of the film, but then I can't stand documentaries, so naturally, I would not like that aspect.

Phillip | 10544 comments hmmm, the documentary aspect was what i liked most. i know quite a few people that wish the film would have stayed in that vibe...and not turn into a clunky action film at the end.


TheGirlBytheSeaofCortez (Madly77) I just don't like documentaries at all, that's it.
