Mini movie review: Elysium


Let World-Herald film critic Bob Fischbach catch you up to speed with a new flick in the theater.

Elysium (R) Writer-director Neill Blomkamp’s followup to “District 9″ is violent sci-fi melodrama, but a solid thriller. Matt Damon is superb as an ex-con toiling on polluted, overpopulated Earth, desperate to get to a luxurious orbiting space station for life-saving medical treatment. Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley and Alice Braga co-star. Too gory for younger teens. 3 stars.
