MY REVIEW: The Planet of Terror and Hope!!
Elysium. Director of cult District 9, an interesting idea, big actors like Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, great looking visuals and sci-fi gadgets, all these raise your expectations to sky high. Elysium fails to meet these high expectations because Jodie Foster is wasted completely and Matt Damon's character despite all his powers does not come across as big hero who saved your world. Technically, Elysium is class apart with very good use of new ideas on future weapons and machinery but when it comes to drama and thrills, movie somewhat lacks the sharpness needed for a serious science fiction. Sharlto Copley as menacing sleeper agent Kruger does well but his character is given a bad turn in last few reels. I am going with good 7 out of 10 for Elysium. Despite its many flaws, it makes a good watch any day because of its spectacle of high standards.
Could v been better
Story forms a great base in the first half creating high expectations but doesn't live up to it.... Before u realise movie is over... Believable concept though..
