Excerpt: Deze Science Fiction film is wel goed, maar het verhaal is net iets te. Matt Damon is een goede acteur, net als Jodie Foster. Het verhaal met de armoe op aarde en het ruimte station voor de rijke wordt wel goed neer gezet. Maar er zit veel drama en wat weinig actie.
Excerpt: This movie was just awful. I didn't like the characters, it was boring and predictable. only redeeming quality is the amazing picture quality of the disc. Solid 5/5. looks beautiful but the movie is trashed
Summary: About half way through the movie, I thought this is much better than I expected. We had a an original plot and it looked like we were headed to a thoughtful climax. But no, we had to slide back to the action, shoot them up bs that every film seems to collapse to in the second half.
Summary: Everything here is clearly black or white, no shades of gray, but even just no gray! These are good, these are frankly evil. The development of the plot is not very logical, and much remains unexplained on a course of action.
Summary: The undertones of District 9 are still very clear with the South African influence throughout which probably takes a bit to adjust to much like District 9. You tend not to get drawn in as much as the D9 and tend to ride shotgun the duration of the movie being next to the action but not in the thick...
Summary: I liked Elysium, over and above the action, performances and the story-line (all important in any movie and well presentesd in this movie). Yes, there are faint D9 undertones but I think the setting was well suited .
Summary: A lot of action in this film, much drama as well. I can definitely see sprinkles of District 9 into this but it was still a great film that deserves to be watched on a silver screen. Just, in my opinion, it was rather predictable.
