Poor peoples suffer on Earth. No fairs!
Poors go to Fancy Space Station and Take Things. Make Earth Good Again! No More Problems!
Max (Matt Damon) grows up a poor orphan in Los Angeles. He gets radiation poisoning at work that gives him a terminal case of cancer. With his last days he decides to work for a local rebel named Spider (Wagner Moura) who has been trying for years to get people to Elysium, and kidnap a rich industrialist named John Carlyle (William Fichtner) that owns the company Max works for. With Carlyle they hope to gain access to Elysium. After this crime the head of Elysium Delacourt (Jodie Foster) sends a group of mercenaries led by Kruger (Sharlto Copley) to find Max. The goal of Max and Spider in gaining access to Elysium is to get into its medical machines and cure themselves and the poor of the Earth. Thus, it sets up the divide between the haves and have nots using health care as a sign of that divide.
The movie was beautifully filmed with Earth always having a foggy tone to it symbolizing the waste and filth the planet is covered in while Elysium is bright and shiny representing the life there. There are great effects like the robots that police the Earth and Elysium.
Most importantly the desperation of the people of Earth to get to Elysium and its medical machines is made real. For example, Spider gets one ship to Elysium at the start of the movie and only one mother gets her daughter to a machine but it fixes all of her fractures before she’s caught and deported.
Director Neill Blomkamp had played with some of these issues before in his initial release District 9 that dealt with a group of aliens that came to South Africa and were put into a huge refugee camp/ghetto. In Elysium he took his ideas to a new level in this fantastic film.
