The plot is very interesting, although I found the script somehow childish and a bit weak in some aspects.
Great fx, if you like science fiction you'll have a good time!

Matt Damon was good and it had an okay story line, but three fourths of the way through there was a bunch of worthless fights and explosions.

At its essence it's about a battle for access to health care! With a subtheme around immigration. Visuyally a mashup of Blade Runner, MadMax and several others. That the real bad guy has a South African accent presumably and solely because the director is South African tells the commitment to integrity in the process. It's well made,and Matt Damon has great intrinsic appeal, so roughly a 7 out of a 10. Read Ringworld by Larry Niven for a fuller exploration of the concept.

It looked like it was shot in the same location like District 9. Gritty, kind of clever, and pretty entertaining. It didn't reinvented the wheel though.
The bad guy didn't felt that bad. The story was kind of predictable. Great action sequence and stellar special effects.
If you like science fiction movies you'll be pleased with this one.

The constant shift of motive and placeholders about what to do with the world of haves and have-nots, and a card key access to medical care is telling about those in control of our freedoms and sovereignty. Plus taking a latino car chop shop to an exoskeleton body mash en la futura es logical, though I don't know if Matt sold me on being a latin man. And how did the atmosphere of Elysium stay contained in the ring without a visible force field?
