Secretary Rhodes, a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Loved this film and I'll be following Blomkamp from now on (by socrates99)
Can't tell you how great it is to see someone capable of filling Ridley Scott's and James Cameron's shoes! Blomkamp has made the best movie yet this year. I was intrigued by District 9. It made me think, but this self-assured and skillfully crafted effort is taking his game to a much higher level.It's been a long time since I was in awe of both the script and the direction. To see they both came from one guy, Neill Blomkamp, is wonderful if a little unnerving. Do we really have to rely on foreigners for biting social commentary?This film is much more clever than most reviewers <more>
are letting on. One reviewer said it's a bit melodramatic, but, frankly, I don't see a subtle treatment getting to first base with most Americans. This puts a lot of troubling issues in sharp relief in an artful, very watchable format whereas most of the arguments about immigration, healthcare and the rich versus the poor are in dense, boring prose.I was warned that Jodie Foster's performance was marred by odd accents, but I barely noticed. I thought she depicted a kind of sharp edged conservative that should be readily recognizable. Sharlto Copley is great as a vicious soldier and Matt Damon is the likable center of the film, as called for. The supporting actors including Braga, Luna and Fichtner, to name a few, all add much to the whole enterprise.This is definitely a go see and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone, including pre-teens and up.
This film represents a natural evolution of the rough, intense, deeply sociopolitical textures that Neill Bloomkamp previously worked with in District 9. Many comparisons can be made between D9 and Elysium; they're both particularly ugly films that face certain ugly truths through the thin veil of sci-fi, and they're both set in some of the trashiest slums ever filmed. At the same time, Elysium borrows a lot from the anime Battle Angel; both are stories in which the rich and poor are separated between the Earth and some high-flying city, and the characters fight their way to the top <more>
with some help from cybernetics. There are also individual scenes that reminded me of other things: one scene reminded me of Total Recall, the main henchman was like an evil version of Metal Gear's Solid Snake, I couldn't help but to think of the Ghost in the Shell saga and the works of William Gibson with all the high-tech surveillance ops and brain-hacking.Despite being somewhat unoriginal, Elysium is every bit as awesome and awe-inspiring as I expected. The action hits hard and rough, with frequent fights and shoot-outs, all made even more explosive and incredible with a plethora of futuristic gear. The film can get pretty gruesome, for there are a few exploding bodies and painful-looking injuries, but it's still nowhere near as gnarly as District 9. Some incredible slow-motion shots and gorgeous special effects make the excitement stand out even more. In between the action scenes, the film maintains even pacing with strong conflicts and quality visuals.As noted above, the story covers pretty standard sci-fi ground. It does employ some interesting concepts though: the actual Elysium space station is a magnificent utopic space habitat a Stanford Torus design , the likes of which is often envisioned by futurists and sci-fi authors, but has never actually been produced on the big screen for some odd reason. The world of Elysium is visually fantastic and really cool.The actual plot is solidly-built, with its foundations firmly set in conflict and action. It takes some really interesting twists and turns; the climax is a little predictable, but everything leading up to it is a real roller-coaster ride. Characters aren't particularly deep; the villains are especially one-dimensional. However, the film does its best to humanize the heroes and the poor people they fight for, to best emphasize its key themes. The themes are not all that subtle, and the political stance is not something I personally agree with, but I appreciate the effort and nobility of the film, as it underscores such hot topics as immigration, healthcare, and class warfare.This film uses pretty rough and gritty photography and editing. The camera does shake around a bit during some scenes, but it didn't agitate me nearly as much as I thought it would: I could see the action perfectly well, and I thought a lot of the camera angles and compositions were cool. Acting is alright: Matt Damon is a pretty generic action hero here, Sharlto Copley hey, the dude from District 9 is flipping crazy, and Alice Braga offers the most touching performance of the lot. Surprisingly, Jodie Foster is the weakest link, thanks to her butchery of the French accent. Writing is not bad. This picture has really cool and real-looking sets, props, costumes, and special effects. Music is pretty good too.I felt this was a perfectly satisfying and awesome sci-fi adventure, despite a few quibbles. District 9 remains a fresher, more original, and more deeper experience; I think it's because it offered something nobody had really seen before. Elysium, on the other hand, offers something we've all seen before, so it hasn't struck as hard with audiences. Personally, I think I prefer Elysium over D9, for having a more complex plot, more incredible action, and more far-out ideas. Both would make a great double-feature, and I do hope director Neill Bloomkamp continues to pump out similarly raw and uncompromising pictures. If you're a big sci-fi fan like me, Elysium is definitely worth seeing; I'd recommend it as a rental to casual viewers.5/5 Entertainment: Perfect | Story: Very Good | Film: Very Good
This film is amazing, the music goes so well with it and the story just flows, it is almost so realistic, I can imagine something like this happening in the future, it depicts how much of a class division there is, no different to now to be honest, the film shows how much someone will go to save man kind. The plot is easy to follow and I could just watch it again and again, as I have mentioned, the soundtrack is just amazing to listen too, with or without the film, the music helps tell the story and portrays the characters emotions and feelings, speech was not needed in parts of the films as <more>
the music did the talking and helped me understand the characters. Using children in this film helps me get into the story more as it shows that almost anything can affect them as well as adults. Illness and disease is around us now and it is difficult to cure and treat everyone but this film shows what the future may hold to health care but also to what could happen to man kind, this film help me understand that I should not take anything for granted and that we as people should respect each other and not be such snobs towards social class, a brilliant film with fantastic actors, a huge well done to everyone that helped create such a wonderful film
Very good and worth watching movie (by TheSunshineRaven)
I must say that I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, even though many comments on the internet said it is not so worth watching. I'm still wondering what people disliked so much about the movie because I really liked it and wasn't disappointed at all - my expectations were fulfilled and I enjoyed every moment of Elysium. The movie kept me on edge of my seat since its beginning to the end, it made me hold my breath few times while watching it and I can't remember a moment when I was bored - the story was fluent and kept me interested in it for the whole screening. It <more>
was shorter than most movies today, 109 minutes may seem to be not enough for a huge movie like this but I'm glad it's not longer - as I said before, the story evolved and had no 'lazy' and uninteresting moments, it didn't concentrate on unimportant details and told only things that were needed. There was so much to look at, so much to experience - visual effects and the environment/surroundings were amazing, camera work very good, soundtrack stunning I can't stop listening to it since seeing the movie , and actors did a great work too. It's one of the best sci-fi movies I've recently seen and I can recommend to everyone to go and see it.I liked that the main characters weren't perfect examples of bravery or leadership or whatever comes to your mind when you say a 'perfect human being', they were quite natural and believable. Matt Damon's Max was selfish and maybe a bit coward too at the beginning of the movie. Jodie Foster's Delacourt maybe seemed to care only about good and peaceful life on Elysium, but she also thought about her own career and own interests. Max wasn't only a hero and Delacourt wasn't only a villain, they were humans with both good and bad in them. In my opinion, the whole crew made an excellent movie that is definitely worth watching. One point down from total 10 for few cliché moments that seem to sneak into every even the best movie nowadays - those clichés for me include this story of little kid Max who promised to take everyone to Elysium or the farewell scene with sad music on the background and typical 'I'm-sorry-goodbye-speech'. To sum up, the movie left me astonished when it ended up and yes, I consider it to be a very good movie ;
Directed and written by Neil Blomkamp, the guy who is behind one of the greatest sci-fi and alien film of the past decade, District 9 D9 . This was my most anticipated movie of the summer, and surely I'm not disappointed by it.The core of the story is health care and how awful the situation is in 2154. I love the fact Blomkamp puts a message in his films while he entertains you, he doesn't try to create a change or make a direction for a change, but he brings awareness to these social issues and problems and shows how unpleasant and horrifying it can get. This helps to realism of the <more>
film's tone, which brings me to the next point I love about his films, the sci-fi aspects; it looks and feels real and believable, he doesn't make cartoonish environment, the science and technology are not too far from the realistic world. It also comes from using less green screens and performing actual stunts, but another plus in his films are the visual effects, it is astonishing, especially in some of the fight scenes, it looks so sharp and awesome. So besides the solid story, the pacing is well done, it doesn't slow down at all, the movie just keeps moving and building up without wasting a second – I totally didn't realize how fast the 100 minutes went by. The soundtrack is also perfect for this film, either if it's an emotional moment or a fight sequence, the score is there to support and add an extra element to it; Blomkamp definitely knows whom to hire to score his films, well done sir. Regarding the performances, Matt Damon surprisingly is his first sci-fi action, he brings a solid performance I guess Dogma can be counted as sci-fi, but it wasn't as big as this, and he's done a great job here ; Jodie Foster, first I need to mention that she has a really sexy, dynamic ass that I had never realized maybe because of the Imax screens, but she surely looks sexy here , and she does a fine job here, however some might find her accent and dialogue strange and not like it, same with William Fichtner one of the most underrated actors of the present time , but keep in mind this strange futuristic dialogue is there to show the difference between the poor class and the rich class; the best performance definitely goes to Sharlto Copley, he owns every scenes he appears on the screen, to me he's even better in here than in D9 – I found it very interesting that a lot of people didn't know he's in the movie until yesterday since he was on Reddit or just someone told them after the movie. Although with all these positive sides, I have a few problems with the film, first one is the cam shakes in some of the fight scenes, to me they're very unnecessary, especially the fact movie is R rated for the violence and the language of Copley's character - maybe at some points they considered having it in PG 13, which I'm glad they didn't because it would ruin Copley's character, and then it would destroy the whole film. The other problem is Jodi Foster's character, she's supposed to be a family oriented person, but the audience won't find that in her character at all, I guess showing more of her character would slow down the movie a little bit, and they just avoided that. Also one thing you really need to consider, this is NOT an action packed movie, there are fight and action sequences, but the film is not filled with all of it, so do NOT expect and raise your expectations based on that. I also think there are two signatures to other classic sci-fi's; a bonsai tree next to Jodi Foster, Bladerunner, and the year 2154, Avatar's year.In conclusion, this is the best sci-fi of the year, indeed, it's better than Man of Steel, Pacific Rim, Ironman 3, and even Star Trek Into Darkness, and yet it's not better than D9, but it' still enjoyable and very entertaining, definitely check it out in real IMAX if you can, I give it 8.8/10.
What every Sci-Fi Action flick needs to be like! (by Amthermandes)
Elysium is an energetic science fiction action thriller featuring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, and Sharlto Copley. Neil Blomkamp certainly aims to please, especially fans of District 9, as both the movies share many similar elements. A crock-pot full action and violence, and spiced with a few humorous moments, we follow our hero as he struggles to live within the future L.A. slums that are packed to the brim with the poor and unfortunate. You can almost hear the monotone chant; "bring out your dead" over and over again. Meanwhile, up in the confines of space, the rich and fortunate <more>
live in utter bliss on the rotating space station, Elysium, free from the disarray of Earth life. The story rages on, heavy with themes of justice and equality for all, as our hero stumbles upon something that could change the course of history, and bring the two worlds back together again, and save those who really need it. Matt Damon's character is believable enough, with Jodie Foster coming in as a ruthless commander and politician of Elysium. Both do a good job, but the real winner here is Sharlto Copley, who emerges as a completely new type of character than that in District 9, one who is eccentric, dangerous, and malicious. Along with a fun array of new weapons, robots, and fun ways to be blown up, Sharlto Copley adds that special touch of uniqueness that elevates the level of fun. It would be unfair to also give praise to the special effects of the film, which looks marvelous on a big screen. The cinematography is well done, adding a few new filming methods, and improving on old techniques to help elevate the feel of the movie. One could question the racial undertones that define the living standards of each way of life, and one could also nit-pick the realism of this future world, and Wolverine-ish superpowers of Matt Damon. However, the movie does share a moral of what a beautiful planet Earth truly is, and gives us a good lesson in gratitude. While it panders to the action and sci-fi junkie, it also allows room for just about anybody to envelope its positive themes and appreciate the courage and strength of the characters. However, it's main purpose, is to entertain, and blow you away. And this movie does just that.
Before watching Elysium, I read every review about it. And it seems to me that there are a lot of people that hated it. Most have said that the message in the film is what kept it 'likable'. Well, after I watched it, I thought to myself, "Why?". Trust me, don't believe any negative reviews about this film. Yes, it's flawed, but the film itself is really good.Matt Damon was great in this film and he was a very likable hero. But Sharlto Copley, oh boy, he was one heck of a villain. He was so good, every scene he was in was disturbing, in a very, very creepy way. He <more>
owned almost every scene he was in and was the stronghold of this film. Jodie Foster as the other antagonist, err, she did her part I guess. Every one did a good job and they really enabled the film to lighten up in most areas.So, this film was really good, and I was extremely pleased by it. The film did a nice job for making the audience feel attached to the characters, and I applaud to that. The action sequences were nice, and it didn't over power the film, something Elysium got right and what others sort of didn't. Man Of Steel's epic final battle, was just TOO LONG! Also on the scenes where it tones down and becomes emotional, was very well done, and it gives this movie heart. It's fast, epic, emotional and incredible.Now, although the film is great, I only have one small gripe about Elysium. Now, the film is around about 109 minutes. I know, that when a film feels really good and it begins to near it's end, you don't want it to do that just yet. That's how I felt when I saw District 9, and I felt the same with Elysium. The film didn't feel rushed which was nice, but an extra half an hour would've been great.Is it a Sci-Fi movie? Yes! Is it an action movie? It gets to it. Is it an epic Sci-Fi action movie? Yes. It is epic! It's definitely a must watch this year. I'm being generous to this film, because of the film's message consisting of poverty, wealth and equality. Watch this film with an open mind, and you will not be disappointed.8/10
Another Great Sci-Fi by Neill Blomkamp with a Different Fight of Classes (by claudio_carvalho)
In 2154, the population is divided in two social classes: the wealthy people live in Elysium, a space station with all the resources; the poor people lives in the exhausted Earth. In Los Angeles, the former car thief Max da Costa Matt Damon is on parole and works on an unhealthy factory Armadyne managed by the CEO John Carlyle William Fichtner . He dreams on saving money to travel to Elysium. Meanwhile the Secretary of Defense of Elysium, Delacourt Jodie Foster , plots a coup-of-stat against President Patel Faran Tahir , with the support of Carlyle. He programs a software that can <more>
override Elysium's data system and make any change, including the president's name to Delacourt. Carlyle uploads the software to his brain to increase its protection. Max is exposed to a lethal amount of radiation in Armadyne and has only five more days of life. He seeks out the criminal Spider Wagner Moura expecting to travel to Elysium, where he can use a medical chamber called Med-bay that is capable to heal any disease and save his life. Spider tells that if Max steals profitable information, such as bank accounts, from the brain of Carlyle that is on Earth, he would get his ticket to Elysium. Max accepts the proposal without knowing the powerful knowledge in Carlyle's brain. When Delacourt learns that the information she needs to become president was stolen from Carlyle brain, she sends the notorious agent Kruger Sharlto Copley to hunt down Max and recover the software at any cost. "Elysium" is another great sci-fi by Neill Blomkamp, the director and writer of "District 9", with a different fight of classes. The poor people live in Los Angeles, now a big slum, and the rich people lives in Elysium, the Elysian Fields from the Greek Mythology and meaning a place or condition of ideal happiness. Matt Damon is excellent as usual, and Jodie Foster is a perfect villain with a different look, blonde with short hair. The Brazilian Alice Braga is very well-known and this is the international debut of the also Brazilian Wagner Moura.There are many plot holes, like for example why not shutdown the airspace from Earth permanently unless when Elysium needs to send a shuttle to Earth of vice-versa? Earth is limited to Los Angeles? Why does Elysium need a man to launch missiles to knock-down the spacecrafts with illegal immigrants? Why not keep Med-Bays in the hospitals on Earth is they are so simple and cheap? But the movie entertains and does not give time to think in these holes. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Elysium"
If you didn't like this movie, you're watching it wrong. (by aj-avatarskye)
Most people who are reviewing here are looking through a District 9 lens and bringing their bias into the reviews instead of just judging Elysium as a stand alone movie. This movie was never going to be District 9: Part 2. If you are expecting that then you will likely be disappointed, and rightly so. Instead go into Neill Blomkamp's Elysium expecting gritty realism, a very feasible universe which could potentially be our reality in the not too distant future and is actually an exaggeration of our current reality , engaging acting, and gory action galore.As someone who hasn't seen <more>
District 9 yet , and was drawn to the movie by other means Matt Damon , I can confidently say that this is a solid, enjoyable and a uniquely unoriginal movie. Well, that is, while the premise is nothing new, the execution and actual progression of the story is good enough to capture your interest and imagination. For instance, one enjoyable part of the story is the lack of a clear 'right' side. Max, the main character of the story is a jaded, antagonistic prisoner on parole, desperate to get to Elysium for his own selfish reasons. He is willing to do whatever it takes to get there, work with criminals, steal, connive--not out of some altruistic duty, but to save himself. Meanwhile, Elysium is clearly an unjust society run by semi-corrupted leaders who gladly hoard all the commodities for the rich. Neither side is a picture of justice, but both sides are on a collision course which promises to be entertaining and exceptionally violent. Warnings: Profanity everywhere, Blood and gore, Death. Perhaps reconsider if you are squeamish at the sight of the red stuff. Not family friendly, don't bring the kiddos. There is a predictable childhood romance but it is tolerable in the grand scheme of things, and really doesn't harm the story. Dare I say it evens adds to it. Unexpected plot twists may cause heart rate elevation. MATT DAMON AWESOME. For those commenting on how the people on Earth speak Spanish and the people on Elysium speak French all 5 of them , it is important to note that a it is far more likely that all manners of languages exist on Elysium because the only criteria for access to Elysium is you must be rich, not you must speak X language b the part of the movie that takes place on Earth is in Los Angeles so Spanish makes sense and c both are European languages anyway.
