Movie Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Richard Roeper Damon’s everyman workhorse is tragically sympathetic, plodding ahead against all odds. Copley is brilliant as the sadistic villain. Foster is … well, you gotta see it to believe it. In the meantime, you’ll be treated to one of the most entertaining action films of the year.
The New Yorker - 8/10 by Anthony Lane At last, a good big film. The legacy of the summer, thus far, has been jetsam: moribund movies that lie there, bloated and beached, gasping to break even. But here is something angry and alive: Elysium.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 8/10 by Joe Williams This vision of a violent future makes Elysium well worth seeing, even as the conventional violence of the thriller finale makes it a missed opportunity.
McClatchy-Tribune News Service - 8/10 by Roger Moore Appreciate Elysium for what it is, sci-fi that’s smarter, more topical and more invigorating than most of what passes through that genre these days, and another sign that its director is the most promising chap to enter the field since the inception of Christopher Nolan.
Miami Herald - 8/10 by Rene Rodriguez Elysium, the second movie from writer-director Neill Blomkamp, isn’t quite as inventive or fresh as his knockout debut, 2009’s "District 9." But the new picture is cut from the same cloth — furiously exciting sci-fi, carefully considered and loaded with allegories and social commentary.
Variety - 8/10 by Scott Foundas Even working within a more conventional framework, Blomkamp again proves to be a superb storyteller. He has a master’s sense of pacing, slowly immersing us into his future world rather than assailing us with nonstop action, and envisioning that world with an architect’s eye for the smallest details.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Michael Phillips With most films, that'd be enough to cut out half the potential American audience. But effective, evocative science fiction, which Elysium is, has a way of getting by with an ILA (Insidious Liberal Agenda) in the guise of worst-case dystopia.
USA Today - 8/10 by Claudia Puig Decidedly more thought-provoking than most big-studio summer fare.
Rolling Stone - 8/10 by Peter Travers Like District 9, an allegory of apartheid that took four Oscar nods and put Blomkamp on the map, Elysium delivers sci-fi without dumbing it down. It's a hell-raiser with a social conscience.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Owen Gleiberman I wish that the film had more of the tasty futuristic detail promised by that dummy parole officer. I also wish that Blomkamp took us deeper into the world of Elysium.
The Playlist - 8/10 by Kevin Jagernauth With Elysium, Blomkamp has made good on the promise of "District 9" and proven that working on a bigger canvas doesn't mean compromising on smarts or aspirations to deliver tentpole sized stories with a thoughtful backbone.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Steven Rea Among the slew of recent futuristic hell-in-a-handbasket spectacles, Elysium takes the cake.
