Plot: In the year 2159, 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 Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that, if successful, will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Where to watch

Movie information in first post provided by The Movie Database
Elysium is one of those movies where you can actually imagine the plot taking place. It's not that far fetched considering for the most part, the wealthy class already separates itself from the lower class today.

Good action, good CGI. Worth watching.
I enjoyed this one but if you are not South African the SA characters might not go down well with you. The accent is rather harsh even for myself being a South African. Otherwise if you can get past that a good one to watch.

There are a few Afrikaans slang words that come into it that would probably once again be lost but not deal breakers really.
