Three things you should know about the Elysium movie

It is Not Very Subtle
The first thing you should know about “Elysium” is that it’s an incredibly political science-fiction film, one in which immigration, health care reform, the “occupy” movements and behavior in the Middle East is addressed head on.

Matt Damon’s Acting was great
Damon plays Max, an orphan living in a Los Angeles that looks more like a bombed-out Mexico City (where the movie was shot). Damon’s character work is skillful; Max goes from being a selfish jerk to a quasi-savior of planet Earth, and Damon works that evolution with grace and measure. Unfortunately, his relationship with Frey (Alice Braga) is less developed and feels more perfunctory.

The Visual Effects are very Impressive
The effects combine to produce something that seems wholly real; the robots that interact with Damon have an eerie lifelike quality, and Elysium is so well visualized that you can practically smell the freshly cut artificial grass. While it’s full of space ships and robots and planetoids, it never seems to be on a campaign of shock and awe. The effects are subtle, which makes them even more impressive.
