Running Time (minutes): 109
Description: In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt, a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that, if successful, will not only save his life but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
Stars: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley
Genres: Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
Not bad… But the ending is totally ridiculous, as if they couldn’t get Max to that medbay… And I hate Jodie Foster. Is Silence of the Lambs the only film where she doesn’t play a bitch?
Interesting score though, a blend of Patrick Doyle, Hans Zimmer/Remote Control Productions and… something else.
