Elysium3

It’s that time again, when we pass the mic over to you guys, not to “sen a derricayshun”, but to let us know what you thought about the weekend past’s biggest release. In this case being Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, his much anticipated follow-up the absolutely brilliant District 9. 

[As always, this will be an unfiltered discussion, so if you haven’t seen the film yet, BEWARE OF SPOILERS!}

I found the film to be technically good, visually amazing, with some great action beats and featuring a killer performance from Sharlto Copley, but it was devoid of character depth, sloppy and immature with its script and far too heavy handed with its politics. Lourens agreed with me. But what did you guys think?
