Movie Review - Elysium, 2 Guns

elysium-movie-images-hd-12.jpg - 1.00 MB

The new sci-fi action drama Elysium convincingly depicts a bleak future in which the world is separated into two classes, where the wealthy get to enjoy the highest standards of health care while the rest are left to fend for themselves under increasingly impersonal, hostile conditions—wait a minute, that sounds pretty much like today.

They are joined in this quest through a wintry landscape by Texas ranger LaBoeuf, and the three quarrel and spar, all the while developing some mutual respect enroute to their date with destiny.

Facing challenges from a torn nation beset by lingering racial tensions, unemployment and crime, Mandela resolves to unify the nation through—rugby.
