District 9 was a sci-fi film that featured the debut of director Neil Blomkamp produced by Peter Jackson. They dropped production of the upcoming Halo movie and worked together to churn out District 9. Half-Life 2, like District 9, is both technically brilliant, emotionally wrenching, and is an action packed adventure that leaves your jaw on the floor when after all is done. This piece is in no way intending that Neil Blomkamp blatantly copied Half-Life 2 for in the creation of District 9. This is just merely for fun.
