From producer Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and director Neill Blomkamp comes a startlingly original science fiction thriller that 'soars on the imagination of its creators' (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). With stunning special effects and gritty realism, the film plunges us into a world where the aliens have landed... only to be exiled to a slum on the fringes of Johannesburg. Now, one lone human discovers the mysterious secret of the extraterrestrial weapon technology. Hunted and hounded through the bizarre back alleys of an alien shantytown, he will discover what it means to be the ultimate outsider on your own planet.
District 9 was directed by Neill Blomkamp from an original screenplay by Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell. Paul Hanson and Elliot Ferwerda co-executive produced. Bill Block and Ken Kamins executive produced. Philippa Boyens co-produced with Peter Jackson and Carolynne Cunningham as producers.
From Roland Emmerich, director of The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day, comes the ultimate action-adventure film, exploding with groundbreaking special effects. As the world faces a catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions, cities collapse and continents crumble. 2012 brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.

I had watched all of these before but only had District 9 on Blu-Ray so this was a good opportunity to get the other two at a great price and I have since traded my original District 9 at a CD & DVD fair.
3 excellent films 2012 / Battle: Los Angeles / District 9. Great value for the money.
Excellent picture quality for some great films. Not so keen on Battle: LA, but the other two are worth the price.
District 9 is one of the best movies ever, don't let the boring first 20-30 minutes make you give up, it gets a whole lot better. 2012 is pretty good. Battle: Los Angeles is not bad, worth watching. All up this is excellent value.
First up, a quick recap of the films in this 3 disc set. District 9 is the excellent 'documentary style' tale of an alien refugee camp just outside of Jo'burg. Battle: Los Angeles could be described as Black Hawk Down mixed with Independence Day. Luckily the film is a lot better than I thought it would be and is probably one of the better alien invasion films of the last few years. Finally we have the 'disaster porn' epic known as 2012. Watch in awe as the forces of Mother Nature rip the human race a new one, and then realise that you have (at time of writing) less than 11 months to sort out your life before the Apocalypse (!!!!!!!!). As for the Blu-rays themselves, the transfers, picture quality and sound are excellent and you get a fair bunch of bonus features per film. IMO District 9 is the best of the bunch, proof that a good story can be told on a fairly restrained budget (and the alien effects are top-notch). Battle: Los Angeles is a gritty, modern war film that just happens to have aliens in it and doesn't go all Blair Witch or Cloverfield when it uses the hand held 'shakycam' style to follow those heroic Marines (!). Lastly if you want a top demo to show off your funky HD set-up then 2012 is for you. It may be silly but by the Mayan Gods does it show off what Blu-Ray can do, and mass destruction has never looked so good. All in all a great bunch of films that are going for a bargain price. What more do you want ?
Three good adventure/sci-fi films in one slimline box-set makes a great gift - better value than buying them seperately!
