Elysium Review – Action, Allegory and Annihilation
South African writer and director Neill Blomkamp has delivered a cinematic follow up to 2009’s District 9. Elysium stands in contrast to its predecessor with its far advanced budget and stronger star power. Blomkamp’s feature length debut was groundbreaking enough with healthy doses of social commentary counterbalanced by a story that was propelled without the help of big name actors. Elysium is pushed along by an international cast of formidable talent, along with enough explosions and high-tech savvy to get any mission to redeem a doomed society of the future off the ground.
Written by Blake Masters and based on Steven Grant’s graphic novels, “2 Guns” follows in the familiar footsteps of such films as “48 Hours” and “Lethal Weapon”.

Mayhem ensues. Firepower is plentiful. Trust is nowhere. Directed by Baltasar Kormákur. Starring Edward James Olmos, Paula Patton, Fred Ward and Bill Paxton.(Larger Player)
