A Full Review of Elysium and Tutorials on Copying DVD Movie


Well, have you ever imagined the future life? I mean tens or hundreds years later? In the movie Elysium derected by Neill Blomkamp, who has also derected District 9 in 2009, the story was settled in the year of 2154.


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 planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster), a seemingly stern businesswoman who wants nothing more than to keep the populations of Earth and Elysium separate, and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

It seems that Elysium and District 9 share the same theme, that is, the fierce struggle between two distinct classes. The difference is that District 9 describes the conflicts between humans and aliens while Elysium focus on huamn being themselves, which appears to be much more ambitious.

The movie is rated R for strong bloody violence and language throughout.
