elysium 700Another film about the rich seeking to purge themselves of the poor, taking their bat and baubles and exclusive health care and going home, or in this case moving to an orbiting space station. It’s a disappointing second outing for Neill Blokamp after the inventive District 9, and also for that film’s star Sharlto Copley, who’s left to drift for most of this movie playing a murderous a-hole of the most simple and tedious kind.
