Fifth about The Seventh

Elysium (2013)

Elysium: a typically grim tale (for a sci-fi movie) that has enough of both unique and the usual elements to feel fresh but not overwhelming. As it’s often the case with films of this genre, the story also serves as a comment on present times; here, it’s somewhat heavy-handed, regardless of how one feels about what is being said. Acting is somewhat uneven: Matt Damon is dependable and Sharlto Copley creates an interesting villain; Jodie Foster, by the other hand, is badly used. The world is well-designed; it’s always nice to see a futuristic world which is not squeaky-clean.
