ELYSIUM (2013): REVIEW
August 22, 2013
"There's nothing left down here. They have it all on Elysium, food, water, medicine, and they'll do anything to keep us out. It's time to change everything."
It's just impossible not to drag Neill Blomkamp's 2009 (highly unexpected and shocking) success of District 9 into this review. Still running on the sci-fi path, this South African director/writer is now dividing Earth's communities into two worlds of the riches and the poors. To be honest, I sealed myself from any expectations and early reviews & rates of Elysium; "Surprise me," I said. So, how was it?
