In Elysium, director Neill Blomkamp continues to explore social issues similar to his previous film District 9. With eye-catching visuals, a good central performance by Matt Damon, and an even more scene stealing turn by Sharlto CopleyElysium delivers on most fronts. Ultimately though, its message of class struggle becomes too preachy and it never quite reaches the same level of quality as District 9.
