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

I had high hopes for this but it just didn't work for me. Matt's shaved head didn't either. The story was weak and it could have been better. sorry :(

While the movie may not, in the end, be so effective in tapping into our current class anxieties, that hardly seems to matter. Like a trip to Elysium, it’s a wild ride. Full Review

A cheekily gruesome and genuinely urgent entertainment, Blomkamp's latest nevertheless can't help but beg the question: Where's Snake Plissken when you need him? Full Review

Decidedly more thought-provoking than most big-studio summer fare. Full Review

Hollywood loves these apocalypse-soon stories, however, because they function as blank canvases for ruin porn, and if nothing else, Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium gives us the realistically trashed tomorrow we suspect we deserve. Full Review

Unfortunately, Elysium devolves. It doesn’t address the ramifications of making everyone healthy for eternity, or what it is on Earth they’re making or digging up that fuels whatever economy is left on the space station. For such a well thought-out premise, there’s not a mention of how capitalism works in this futureworld. Full Review
