Elysium

20130912-184704.jpg

Director: Neill Blomkamp
Screenwriter: Neill Blomkamp
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi

Neill Blomkamp (District 9) did an unbelievable job with both writing and directing this film, bringing to life a now growing social issue. Set in a futurist decaying Earth where the middle class is non-existent, chaos and injustice run the streets. The underlying social issues Blomkamp brings to the surface of this film could predict in all actuality some type of future for Americans. Now with that said, there are the obvious science fiction liberties taken in this blockbuster movie. Bringing with it the desperation of a man who would do anything to only live and be with his childhood’s love. What would you do to save yourself? Elysium is a gripping movie pumped full of action and drama. It’s a story that should be told and Matt Damon is the badass who did it right. It’s in theaters now, so go check it out.
