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. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
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, a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that, if successful, will not only save his life but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.Written by
Sharlto Copley's character Kruger is clearly South African, which is obvious from his accent, the various slang he uses, and several images of the South African flag on his ship and clothing. The name Kruger is significant in South African history and culture: Paul Kruger (Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger) was a four-term State President of the South African Republic in the late 1800s. The Krugerrand is a 1 troy ounce South African gold coin; it is named for Paul Kruger and for the rand, the official South African unit of currency. See more »
A Stanford torus, such as Elysium, would be too small to be visible in the sky of Los Angeles to the naked eye in the daylight. Comets and asteroids which are orders of magnitude brighter than Elysium could ever be, are not visible in space to unaided human sight. See more »

In the soundtrack part of the end titles it says:
"Piano Concerto No. 8 in C minor 'Pathetique' - Adagio Cantabile Written by Ludwig van Beethoven"
L. v. Beethoven wrote only five piano concertos (his eighth piano sonata is titled "Pathetique" however). See more »
Well, as a die hard Matt Damon fans, I'm just so gonna watch this movie and I did. Yeap and I will always said his acting just won't fail me and let me down.
Lets talk about the movie shall we ? Firstly BRILLIANT GRAPHICS, thanks to modern technology, CG looks real enough, hardly notice that it had been polished by after effects. Visually Enjoyed watching the movie. Actually I see shadow of District 9 throughout the show, is it maybe coz of Sharlto Copley ? Well, you judge that yourself.
Talking about casting, I would say all the Actor/Actress were put to the right place, the acting was real, professional, I am so into the movie and I am so enjoyed of the performances of they.
Everything is best and sets, at least for me. Just a little bit disappointed of the story line, it's just so predictable and simple, I was hoping to get a little bit more from this Movie. But overall still a nice show to watch.
So I am voting a 7 out of 10 rating.
You definitely going to watch this, whether you're a die hard fans of Matt Damon or not.
