The review said it was a thinking person's movie. I couldn't disagree more. On the other hand, it I had been thinking, I would have just walked out when it repeated the same thing over and over again. It is very frustrating because there don't seem to be ANY movies folks who aren't 12 years old can enjoy. Shame on you Hollywood!

The movie was ok. The characters were not very well fleshed out, and the plot was paper thin. The special effects and Matt Damon were effective, but Jody Foster forgot to bring her acting chops. The villain was silly as well. Alice Braga is beautiful as ever.

Great Sci-Fi big budget action movie that I had been waiting a long time to see. I think my problem was that I watched the trailer several times and (purely by coincidence) watched Oblivion on DVD the night before going to see Elysium so there were no surprises in the plot for me., I'd still recommend people go (but don't make my mistake and watch another big budget Sci Fi movie right before) and (probably) don't watch the trailer either. It gives too much away I think.

There was no nudity in this film whatsoever and no one came on matt damon's bald head. I cannot figure out why because it would have been so easy to wipe it off. Oh and the movie was decent too. Sharlto Copley was a bad ass. They thankfully killed Jodie Foster. Another thing, why wasn't Ben Affleck in this movie? He would have been great as a character named Cockso the raping robot policeman. Maybe he'll show up as this character in Elysium 2.

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.
