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

Slow-Mo!

Overall I was disappointed. Instead of an action packed thriller, you get a hodge podge of sub plots that never really get entirely fleshed out. The Jodi Foster character is especially obtuse - you don't really get her or what she hopes to accomplish at all. The plot never gets going and the actors just plod along. It's OK for a rainy Sunday afternoon, but if I was to describe the movie using just one word???? Boring!

This was by far one of the better movies to come out this year. I honestly don't find myself as thrilled after seeing movies as I used to but this kept my attention enough to say its worth seeing.

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.
