"More words count less" - Lao Tsu

Review: Elysium (2013)

(87) Elysium is a film facing an incline: it’s the spiritual sequel to the popular District 9, its theme is politically divisive (taking on immigration and healthcare), and it released during a summer of expensive science-fiction flops. Those concerns seem trivial when the gravity of its plot finally levels on you, revealing the real uphill battle is the one opposite humanity on-screen. This underdog tale would seem absurd if it weren’t so uncanny. A flawless marriage of digital and practical effects takes Elysium over its obstacles and beyond.
