This ambitious sci-fi docu-drama is definitely worth a look-see even if it can't quite fulfil its high-concept ideas.

more... MOREBy Ah-Pook (7 reviews) , 15 Apr 2013Takes a while to get going but when it does it doesn't disappoint! We need another one like this. Interesting the way they make the South Africans react to the aliens socially.
In the GhettoBy JakeDaJeweller (14 reviews) , 30 Mar 2013You have to look at this film in several ways to get the most from it, most people miss the fact that it is a reflection of South Africa and that segregation has not really gone away, hard to palate maybe, but a hard fact. Probably will not watch ot again, that said I enjoyed the film.

Wimpy Amercans chose South AfricaBy Chiefmarcher (6 reviews) from Northampton , 13 Jan 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideAn excelent and thought provoking plot. An interesting chioce of city. The American film makers clearly did not want to show an American city as racist. The South African accents and the use of Nigerian criminals ads a bit of humour.
Another Gem!By a customer , 10 Jan 2013Brilliant, fresh and exciting. I can see why south africa is being used for filming so much these days. Veery enjoyable sc fi
