Making the Grades

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.


Twenty-eight years ago, aliens landed on Earth. To keep the Human population safe, the refugees were confined to an area in South Africa know as District 9. This segregation has caused controversy in the past, but it appears now that the volatile problem may be about to explode.

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:
