Joe's Review of Elysium

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


A pretty cool concept turns into a standard action shoot-em up, raised above average by Jodie Foster's performance, as the would-be head of Elysium. Matt Damon puts on his standard action-hero hat and doesn't surprise, or disappoint. Visuals are great, as is some social commentary, tossed in between the action. Did love the reference to Homeland Security at Elysium. Overall a good, although not great, way to spend an afternoon.
