He can save us all.
In the year 2159, 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 Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line 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 (Matt Damon) 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.

An okay science fiction, but Wagner Moura is great.

Is it a Sci-Fi movie? Yes! Is it an action movie? It gets to it. Is it an epic Sci-Fi action movie? Yes. It is epic! It's definitely a must watch. Watch this film with an open mind, and you will not be disappointed.

Had high hopes for this Sci-Fi action flick but was severely disappointed: the plot is shallow and predictable, I found not one of the characters authentic and neither acting, special effects nor the action sequences were above average.

I would suggest to skip Elysium and watch something like Star Wars - The Force Awakens or Matrix instead if you are in the mood for a SciFi action flick!
