Awesome! - As with all Scott movies the screenplay is brilliant & captivating, the special effects are very professional unlike most cartoonish computerised crap, the acting is good and it must be watched at least 5 times to fully understand.

Very good setup and all the acting and graphics were great, not just about monsters and scariness, it has a complex and we'll executed plot - u_maddox_bro

This is the epitome of sci-fi movies. I don't need to say much more. This should be on the top 5 at least.

This is an amazing movie. Everything about it. - Catlover2004

MOST UNDER RATED MOVIE OF ALL TIME! Nice job on this one del toro!

54 Elysium

Far from the greatest sci-fi movies like T2 and Star Wars V, but this still is a great, and heartbreakingly underrated sci-fi film about a dying future of the Planet Earth being taken over by the wealthy in their heavenly home in space, called Elysium. It is up to Max the Costa (Matt Damon) to stop evil bounty hunter Agent Kruger (Sharlto Copy) and bring the dying people of Earth to Elysium with a newly installed cyborg computer system to his body. This film was just called by most people to be a disappointment compared to the so called " high alien thrills of District 9". This film may not be what is wanted of the sci-fi general public but it may be correct rather than false of most sci-fi movies about the future because of what we are doing to our Planet Earth in the present.
