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.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
