    What a great movie. Before this, District 9 was the only Neill Blomkamp film I had seen was and Zygote was the only short by him I'd seen, and both were terrific. So I had high hopes for this and was not disappointed. Dev Patel stars as Deon Wilson, who works at a South African robotics company called Tetravaal , and has actually created an army of mechanical robot policeman. The human police are put on reserve.

    Here it is. After seeing this a zillion times, I need to review this gem. It's only one of the very best movies EVER!
