The mecha warrior robot in District 9 brought to mind the Cave Troll from Fellowship of the Ring.  When these figures appear, there’s a brief, stunned reaction from the people around it, and we see it mostly from the perspective of “eye level” for an adult human.  What can we compare this to in real life?  Maybe it’s how we react when they’re being tailgated by a Hummer on the freeway, or if we meet somebody like Bill Clinton.
