Elysium Review By Adam
Elysium was one of my most anticipated films of the year, so it is with a heavy heart that I report that the final film is a little bit of a disappointment. The weird part is that Elysium only has itself to blame, as some elements of this film are so good (the special effects, the aesthetics and world building) that they make the bad parts (unsympathetic characters and heavy-handed storytelling) really stand out. The film is still a must-see for fans of the genre, but it is nowhere near the knockout that director Neil Blomkamp delivered with District 9. Watch the video review below for more.
