While I think District 9 itself is a +4 film, I think the artbook is a +5.

If you're a guy like me, who loves to collect copies of artwork for reference in fiction projects, this book will be a welcome addition to your bookshelf.
Finally, as a metalhead, I think it's safe to assume that the concept artist in charge of conceptualizing alien designs is a metalhead since there's two drawings of people wearing Napalm Death and Meshuggah shirts.
