review : ELYSIUM

hello peeps.
alhamdulillah, yesterday i got the opportunity to watched The Premiere Screening of Elysium.
thanks to miracikcit for giving me the free ticket.

Duration : 109 mins
Genre : action, drama
Release date : 22 august 2013
Rate : 6/10

The film, set in 2154, exist two classes of person, the very wealthy, who live on space station called Elysium, and the poor in ruined Earth. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet's crime and poverty, and they critically need medical care available on Elysium. Unluckily, there is a person, Secretary Delacourt(Jodie Foster) in Elysium will do anything to prevent people of Earth immigrate, in order to preserve their citizens' luxurious lifestyle. There is also some political issues happen in Elysium and from time to time, the secret revealed. Meanwhile, Max Da Costa(Matt Damon)  who in desperate need to get to Elysium for saving his life, receive a dangerous mission in order to get into spaceship. But unconciously, he get important data which can save millions of people on earth but need to compete with some people who want to rule the Elysium first even if he could not save his own life.

  i would say the movie is quite good for who like action movie. but the story develop to slow at the beginning. i feel a bit bored for half an hour because they tried to get audience understand about the life differences between Earth and Elysium. Then the story develop and i can feel the tense. Overall, it is a typical storyline where people try to life in better place but there is some obstacle they must get through. and at the end, a hero will appear to save all people on Earth. But there is also something in that movie where you will be amazed if its truly exist.

footnote: we see people live perfectly, but we must know they feel just the same when they see us.

  1. Good review. Not perfect by any means, but still plenty filled with compelling and thrilling material worth being seen on the big screen.
