One BIG yawn,
This review is from: Elysium (DVD)
A wafer thin plot that barely does enough to keep the attention.The trouble is this is a well trodden path,a sort of "Wall-e",in live action,with a similar feel & look as "District 9"'
Matt Damon is about the best thing in it but as they say,you can't polish a turd,so not even he can save it.The film looks really good but like "Oblivion"it does fall into the style over substance category.
A good idea badly executed & not even the good cgi is enough,but it never is,a film needs more.Very disappointing,painfully slow or maybe I was just bored,that'll be it.
