Re: Neill Blomkamp’s next project... ELYSIUM? - Part 1
If the film dragged for you that's fine, but that's more of a taste thing I think, cause it definitely didn't bore me... I was riveted from start to finish.
The Elysium computer system controlled all the robots on earth, and controlled the order of things and people within the heirarchy on Earth and Elysium too.
So when it was created, it was programmed to recognise the President as the person with the most authority, highest levels of clearance etc.
Of course, the only person capable of altering that, would be the person who was responsible for creating the computer system in the first place.
Because he had the power to reset the system and alter who Elysium recognises as the President.
Just like in the end they could alter who Elysium recognises as citizens.
'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
