Forget the plot, because it's formulaic and 'been there done that' but as for the comedy. It pulls no punches and works very well, and this is mainly due to the great cast. P.S. Jennifer Aniston is the hottest woman alive.
Elysium is an incredible and absolutely spell-binding film, the performances given from Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley are out of this world. There are so many original things this film does that amazed me, and while there are some cliches aswell they were balanced out. The CGI work is also some of the best I have ever seen, absolutely breathtaking.
It's so incredibly entertaining and if you go into it expecting a good time at the movies you won't be disappointed. Once you start to the think about it, it becomes absurd, so enjoy it for what it is like I did.
I thought the cult short was really, really good, and I did enjoy 'aspects' of others. But overall the film is pretty average. It does have good things, but also has bad things. Plus, it's not as good as the first, and I think that's due to the fact that it used a lot more gore as apposed to genuine creepiness like the first had.
