So violent it became boring. Story was a rehash of rich vs poor, what story there was.
Jody Foster has apparently forgot how to act. Threatened violence against a child is disturbing and annoying. Matt Damon was Matt Damon. The cgi was good so if you go to the movies to admire cgi then its ok, otherwise don't bother.

I'm a hardcore science fiction fan, and I have to say that this is up there for me as being one of the best sci-fi movies I have seen to date. It felt like a more modernized version of 2001 with nearly perfect special effects. I've read books that talk about the technology needed to build a space station like this, and Elysium hits it right on the head. Some parts of the movie were a little out there, but the movie makes up for that in the plot and action. I was really glad that I saw it on the IMAX screen, and I almost wish that I had seen it in 3D - may have to go see it again. ;)

Excellent action adventure movie, thought-provoking view on the future, but a very predictable plot. If for no other reason, see it for the special effects in IMAX!

"The IMAX Experience" isn't. It's the normal theater aspect ratio and doesn't come close to filling the screen of an IMAX theater.
Jodie Foster was particularly disappointing. Weird accent, crappy character, melodramatic, and just not the Jodie Foster who is usually pretty awesome.
The camera shaking is overdone.
Storyline is OK, but just.
After watching Pacific Rim: the IMAX Experience, I was pretty underwhelmed by this movie.

This movie was absolutely horrible. My husband and I walked out after the first 45 minutes. Can't believe that Matt Damon made this garbage. They must have thrown a lot of money at him. Very disappointed.
