Comment
An alien ship arrives above South Africa containing aliens that are no longer able to fly their ship. They are moved into a camp which after 20 years has become a slum. A mercenary company is brought in to clear the area. Sharlto Copely is one of the team who gets contaminated by a chemical made by the aliens, that starts to transform him. This film is made in a documentary style and has some good CGI aliens. Given that the plot starts from aliens living on earth, it is beleivable and the characters feel real and are engaging. This is not an all action alien film, but is one of the better Sci-Fi films.
