Elysium

Elysium

TRAILER

 

In a future in which the privileged reside on an Earth-orbiting space station named Elysium and the less fortunate live on the surface of the blighted, overpopulated planet below, one man dares to defy the strict anti-immigration laws that separate the two disparate worlds in order to save all of mankind in this visceral sci-fi action thriller from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp. The year is 2154, and the division between social classes has grown wider than ever before. As the rich enjoy a life of luxury and access to cutting-edge medical technology on Elysium, the rest of the human race contend with poverty, crime, and disease on the surface of planet Earth. Meanwhile, hard-line immigration laws ensure that only those who have been explicitly approved will ever set foot on the elusive paradise in the stars. 36-year-old Max (Matt Damon) lives in an L.A. shantytown and earns his living by working on an Armadyne assembly line. He's had a rough past, but he's struggling to stay on the right side of the law when he realizes that his only hope for survival after being exposed to deadly radiation is to reach Elysium. Should Max succeed, he will strike a major blow for equality in the eyes of his fellow surface dwellers; should he fail, it will mean certain death. In his quest to become the hero who can restore the balance between the rich and the poor, however, Max must first do battle with Elysium's hawkish Secretary of Defense Delacourt (Jodie Foster), who has devoted her entire career to maintaining that division, and whose key enforcer Kruger (Sharlto Copley) is notorious for his brutal tactics in driving out illegals. With the fates of millions hanging in the balance, Max sets his sights on Elysium and never looks back. Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner, and Faran Tahir co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Action packed depressing movie. Lots of flying body parts, and an actress who relishes the same role in similiar movies. Jodie Foster was rigid playing into the villain role a little too easily. Rich people without a conscience. Matt Damon should stick to Jason Bourne.

      Oh and the evil Arnydyme Corp guy was in Prison Break, The Perfect Storm, Armaggeddon etc...playing the same sort of "creepy" strung out character. lol

    I didn't hate the movie, but I thought it could've been better. It was great hanging out after at Swagat!

    I liked the concept of the two lifestyles, but I wish that they had been a storyline on Elysium other than the "big bad politicians". There was too much focus the Earth storyline and some of the characters could've been written out (the mom and her daughter). Other than that, I thought it wasn't bad. It was great hanging out after at Swagat...good conversation about smelly weird people ;)

    Upon reflection I’ve decided that I hated this movie. When I was watching it I was mostly just uncomfortable. But now that I think back on it: Would it be too much to expect maybe a LITTLE subtlety from a movie? EVERYTHING was overblown. The villains weren't just villains; they were the personification of unrepentant evil. The violence was gratuitous, with gushing blood, and exploding bits of people flying everywhere. And of course, they couldn’t resist throwing in a subplot of the young mother desperate to save her dying child. Well, at least the face sequence (sort of like the melting face at the end of the first Indiana Jones, only played in reverse) gave me a laugh.

    FYI: Parking might be a problem tomorrow since the "Taste of Concord" is happening from 1-4pm. So take note of the various parking structures (one by the theatre that is a 90-minute limit, one diagonal from the theatre that's connected to Skipolini's and one a little further down Salvio by Todos Santos Park).
