According to Justin Craig, a movie critic who writes for foxnews.com, Elysium is no “sci-fi hit.” Neil Blomkamp’s summer thriller allegedly fails to hold a candle to the well-received District Nine. While Craig found the first half-hour to be enjoyable, he says that the film quickly becomes a disappointment.
Craig was upset by the Elysium’s alleged detour into brainless action-movie-land, subsequently veering away from the thoughtful tone set up in the opening act. On the other hand, Craig did take pleasure in the movie’s unique visual style. Craig then went on to say that it is a shame that the realism the director employed in the visuals was not carried over into the writing.
According to Craig, District Nine fans will probably be disappointed by Elysium.
