Elysium (2013)

In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, and a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

A good sci-fi plot with some great sets is staged like an ordinary actioner without any thrilling urgency and without the righteous moral and political rage you'd expect from the story.

Maltin**1/2: "Writer-director Blomkamp's follow-up to DISTRICT 9 offers a similar blend of science fiction and social commentary, but after a promising start it runs off the rails, becoming a grim, gritty shoot-'em-up devoid of fun. Foster's mannered performance...is also hard to take."
