Complete waste of time to see. Wait until it comes out on your movie channel. I wasted $39 for ImaX that fits more like a movie on SyFi channel. You rarely see Elysium at all or why it was made. You spend most time on Earth that is a poor zone. Matt is just terrible in this, such a wooshy type of person. Jody was nothing in this movie, guess she need a tax write off for next year. Don't see this and waste your money. What you have seen on TV for the movie is the movie no new surprises and my partner and I both fell asleep off and on during the movie if that tells you anything...

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.

Best Film Of The year

Ok, actually tied with Superman but this one had more earnest and heart than superman did, the political message a bit heavy but otherwise very solid film.

...still worth the trip to an IMAX. It is visually awesome, from the slums to Elysium itself. I've never seen Jodie Foster play a straight-up bad guy before. It was a revelation. She gets my vote for Cruella in the next live-action 101 Dalmations remake.

Loved it

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. ;)
