If you must know it's because a promising first act devolves into a gormless, slack-jawed run-and-gun film without any characters of entertainment worth/depth/anything beyond the protagonist, and yet it has airs of being a major statement on Apartheid because Blomkamp doesn't understand how to refine a cultural situation into a story without bashing you over the head with a giant mallet with "THE POINT" stamped on the side.
Yes. Not that I loved the first act of District 9. OR Elysium.
I actually liked the action bits of D9 more than the rest, if only because it's the only section of the movie that isn't preaching.
