Review: Elysium


Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.


I honestly didn’t know what to expect in the movie, except that it is a dramatic science fiction movie starring Matt Damon. I liked the trailer so I jumped right in, this is about Earth going to crap and the elite moving to an earth station orbiting around earth in the perfect world. The robots in this movie were cool and realistic, and people were going to extremes to get to Elysium. The surprise for me wasn’t just the story, it was the other star of this movie who played the bad guy perfectly, Sharlto Copley (From District 9). He made the movie insane and thrilling, above and beyond what I was initially expecting and that made it that much better.

Pandorum is an interesting sci-fi thriller, the concept can be seen from this trailer and I do like these types of movies. There hasn’t been a lot of sci-fi thriller/horror in a while now so I’m looking forward to this movie. Getting the right combination for a good story line is tough these days with sci-fi movies, and I’m crossing my fingers for Pandorum and based on the trailer its off to a good start.
