    Futuristic with creativity.

    Neil Blomkamp made a great directorial debut with 'District 9', one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. This time he teams up with Academy Award winner Matt Damon for 'Elysium', a futuristic film that reflect the wealth gap in nations in the entire world. Matt Damon plays Max, a man who lives on earth in 2154. Earth is in horrible condition due to overpopulation, war, disease etc. Since its sci-fi there's a space ship. It's called Elysium and is prettier than Disney World. Here a corrupt Jodie Foster in an ill-cast role is in charge of the ship and kills anyone from Earth who attempts to join her in space. Max eventually has to go to Elysium in order to safe himself and Earth. I wouldn't spoil why he has to go up. This is a total popcorn film that isn't pure stupidity and explosions. It has a really interesting theme of immigration and how wealth in shared unequally in many nations, just how District 9 had a message about apartheid in South Africa. The visual effects are very well-done as well and provide excellent entertainment. A good futuristic film is always fun, and its even better when there's robots, explosives, cool guns, and strong themes to back it up so it isn't complete trash.

    Exciting

    I enjoyed the plot to the movie and the charterers role in it. I thought I could have been better but it was alright and I liked it more than I thought I would have.
