Genre: Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
A great-looking Sci-Fi movie about an age-old theme. There is a paradise that is built for the rich, it floats over the ghetto world that houses the untouchables. We have seen this same story in movies like Metropolis, Astro Boy, and Battle Angel Alita. What Elysium brings to the table is some stellar visuals but the story comes up short and smacks of “great white hope” as Damon is a white man among brown people on dirty earth. Still Elysium is a movie to be checked out despite it’s unpopularity on the rating scale.
