Markellus' Review of Elysium

Being a big fan of "District 9" I was really looking forward to what was next for Neill Blomkamp, because he seemed like a refreshing voice in the genre film game. Although I still believe that, I feel that his script writing wasn't completely up to form for this movie. Some really great ideas, characters, and set up, but the story just seemed to meander along. It never felt urgent except for a couple of scenes, and this story needed that. Even though it was entertaining, the movie could've been amped up a couple of notches.
