I thought the movie was pretty good and the plot was original.  Kind of nice to see a movie were the aliens aren’t the evil ones.  I wouldn’t recommend for younger kids since there is a lot of use of the “F”, although in the South African dialect it doesn’t sound like the actual word - more like “Book” with an F instead of a B.  Lotsa blood and guts but no nudity.

This is an excellent film, but not appropriate for youth.  There are complex social/moral themes at play, and lots of gore and violence.  Beware, because this is the ‘cool’ movie right now, so tweens/teens (especially boys) will have heightened interest in it!  Not suitable for under age 16.  See my review at:
