What to know

critics consensus

After the heady sci-fi thrills of District 9, Elysium is a bit of a comedown for director Neill Blomkamp, but on its own terms, it delivers just often enough to satisfy. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

In the year 2154, humanity is sharply divided between two classes of people: The ultrarich live aboard a luxurious space station called Elysium, and the rest live a hardscrabble existence in Earth's ruins. His life hanging in the balance, a man named Max (Matt Damon) agrees to undertake a dangerous mission that could bring equality to the population, but Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) vows to preserve the pampered lifestyle of Elysium's citizens, no matter what the cost.

    astoundingly well filmed, the action comparable with michael bay sequences. it has a heart though and a message. while it's no district 9 it's still full of energy, good acting and maximum sci-fi atmosphere. in some ways it's like district 9 but on a larger scale. we've progressed from apartheid to worldwide segregation irrespective of race and discriminate of all the have nots.

    Starts out by raising some important issues only to get bored and decide to blow stuff up instead.

    So much noise. So little purpose. Very little entertainment value.

    Very cool. The action and sci-fi elements are fantastic here, even though the story is lacking. If you enjoyed District 9, then you'll probably like this film.
