In the year 2154, 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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Matt Damen tries hard but its so clichéd and ridiculous. However the special effects are great, and no one creates realistic looking robots like Neill Blomkamp special effects team. I had seen the movie in the theatre but purchased this stickily for the special effects.
This is what happens when you give a director, who hit it big on a small budget feature (District 9), a truck load of money to create a much bigger picture hoping to recreate the same result. Some directors are meant to work small and ring out the most from their budget. Blomkamp's District 9, was a small budget picture that maxed out its special effects and story. Blomkamp's latest movie, "Chappie" is even worse that this one, Another ridiculous story but coupled with great robot special effects.
If you want a better movie that deals with a orbiting space station then check out a movie called "Cargo". Its a German/Swiss production so it subtitled, made on much smaller budget, but it's significantly better that Elysium. In this version, its the reverse of Elysium, in that the last of humanity populates this vastly overcrowded space station and only the ones who can afford it get to travel to and inhabit newly found planet that is similar to earth. The main character is a doctor who pays her way on a cargo ship as the ships doctor. The trip is very long and each member of the crew must take a turn monitoring the ship and cargo while the others are in suspended animation. During the doctor's turn, she begins to suspect that all is not what it seems. Very good movie.
