 Rated 6/10
Set in the mid 21st Century where the earth has become so unpleasantly overpopulated, polluted and crime ridden that the rich live in an off-Earth utopia named Elysium leaving the proles back on earth to fend for themselves and keep working like slaves to keep the rich in the style they've become accustomed to.

Without giving the story away too much Matt Damon finds himself in a do or die situation that may overthrow Elysium's equilibrium.

The parallels with current politics help to make this Science Fiction vision quite believable. Matt Damon could have been working for Sports Direct (minus the radiation poisoning) and the chilling treatment of immigrants by Jodie Foster as Secretary Delacourt screams Trump.

What's less believable are the Laptops and USB cables inserted into the brain. I think if we can believe that you can download knowledge/data from the brain then we can make that jump that it wouldn't have to be via cable!

So overall it looks good, speeds along at a gripping pace and has surprisingly leftist politics but it's also somehow pretty lightweight and I'm not sure I would watch it again but it's a decent watch for an hour and a half.
