Matt may try to save the girl but the movie is lost

Special effects were used to fill the void where the plot should have been. This movie might have worked as a short but not as a full feature film.

Elysium

I love Matt Damon and he was really great in this movie (as he is in all his movies). Jodie Foster was great too. My husband and I both loved the this movie. It is definitely a MUST GO.

OK movie but not what I expected

By buffetfan1102

I expected the story to be more about the space station then about two guys fighting almost the whole movie. There is lots of action but I was hoping for more of a story about life in outer space. There is also an undertone of politics with universal health care for all . That was quite evident. I also didn't like the depiction of the poor as dirty and the environment full of trash and graffiti. Stupid. This is a good rental.

Not gripping

The movie was okay but certainly not gripping or exciting as you may expect, in fact my wife fell asleep! An issue is the fact that the premise of the movie seems to be attempting some great social analogy which never comes off and if you give it any thought, the way they do it in the movie is just a nonsense.

Nice Narrative on the Struggle Between the Haves and the Havenots

The story was told moderately well, meaning you'll care about the characters. This story is a timeless one of the struggle of humanity with distributive justice. It's basically about when people get pushed to far, they will fight back.
