Default Re: Neill Blomkamp’s next project... ELYSIUM? - Part 1

I watched it yesterday and enjoyed it. The political message supporting illegal immigrants is pretty heavy handed, but I'm siding more and more with their plight as time goes by anyway, so I didn't mind it.

I do wish that the world had been explored more. The problem with these one and done sci-fi films is that sci-fi fans always want to know more about the world and how it happened, what goes on etc. So, movies like Elysium, Oblivion and Upside Down (all from 2013) all feel like a bit of a letdown because I wish they could have expanded the stories.
