  • Like District 9, an allegory of apartheid that took four Oscar nods and put Blomkamp on the map, Elysium delivers sci-fi without dumbing it down. It's a hell-raiser with a social conscience. show more

  • Among the slew of recent futuristic hell-in-a-handbasket spectacles, Elysium takes the cake. show more

    Lame story added to lame acting = painfully bad movie.

    the story had potential .. however looks like a low budget... poor implementation, again most of the movie are fights and battle ...
