In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

The movie begins with the year of 2154 whereby Earth was totally ruined and full of lower class people. Whereas, there are superb wealthy people who live in the space known as Elysium.
can you see the difference? All the Eathlings tried so hard to get to Elysium by paying so much for passes and residential ID as they want to escape from poverty, crimes and to get medical care (there's machine in Elysium that can cure all sort of sickness or disabilities). One day, Max accidentally being trapped and being exposed to radioactive ray. The only way for him to survive is to get into Elysium to get treated by the machine. He seek for Spider's help and in return, Spider wants him to get the codes of a billionaire, John Carlyle. 

On the other hand, Elysium also do have political issue whereby, Secretary Delacourt aims on the president position of Elysium. She hired Kruger to help her on her missions. There starts the battle between Elysium, Kruger and Max, Spider.

In most parts of the movie, i felt quite bored actually. There are some parts which involves action between Max and his team with Kruger and his team. I like to see the action between Kruger and Max, it's the part i think is interesting. So i would say that this movie is normal only. But this is just my opinion for the movie, some of you or most of you might think it's an awesome movie
