Elysium: Um…. 2 stars

Posted by & filed under Reviews.

So, I’ve watched The Elysium this weekend. And results are rather mixed. I mean it’s a nice action movie with standard “self-sacrifice” and “for the greater good” and “think of the children” message (that’s probably why the score is so high in Rotten Tomatoes — unless you have self-sacrifice themes you’re doomed to be labeled […]
