Slow mover

this could be a great movie but it is like they cut out all the good parts. The fight scenes were short and not very exciting. This movie was a little boring. I love the idea of this movie but they just fell short in presenting it

Even great actors make mistakes!

Matt, Matt, Matt, what were you thinking? One of the worst three movies I've ever seen, along with Joe Versus the Volcano and Time Travelers Wife! Jodi Fosters accent was ridiculous and whomever edited the movie, needs glasses, as when they were editing scenes with Jodi Foster, didn't anyone notice her earrings changed in every scene, even those that were supposed to be continuous. You know it's a bad movie when earrings and accents stand-out!

Another left wing social commentary

By Lindarion
Written August 11, 2013
A left wing social commentary movie dressed up as a Science Fiction Action flick. The nasty white people, who for unknown reasons speak French, live in a technological utopia called Elysium which orbits the earth. The poor downtrodden masses, who all speak Spanish, live on Earth and they all wish to emigrate to Elysium for the free medical care that can be had there. I wonder where I heard something like this before? Oh yes, the 2012 Presidential campaign! By the end of the movie the downtrodden have triumphed and all become citizens! One is treated to a one and half hour propaganda film which extols the Democrat Party's viewpoint that citizenship for all immigrants legal or illegal is somehow a human right. If you belong to the half of the country that believes this is our future, then see the movie. If you belong to the other half of the country, you will find this movie deeply tiresome.

Space Station mixed with transformers and robotic acting

What an intellectual insult to people watching this film. Ridiculous premise that the earth is trashed out totally. Give us humans some sort of dignity where we can preserve our environment and all the good that has been done over the past decades. Under the stupid premise that the earth with all it finite resources can be equally applied to everybody. Hollywood gone totally leftist to the power of infinity. Hollywood totally forgetting that there are millions of people and care givers helping other humans every day. Getting tired of transformer special effects. It was cool as a toy 20 years ago. How many more movies will we have to live thru this graphics animations. And with all the advanced Elysium automation and technical advancements, the move has shoot outs and the actors hacking each other with large jungle knifes. I think I will skip paying for a movie for the rest of this year. How disappointing.
