So far, 'Elysium' has racked up mostly positive reviews, standing at 72% "Fresh" on RottenTomatoes.com. (Check out our favorable take right here.) The movie has been highly anticipated for the better part of a year, mostly thanks to the success of Blomkamp's previous effort; not to mention Matt Damon is always a popular marquee name. Audiences haven't seen Damon take on an action hero role since 2007's 'The Bourne Ultimatum', so it's likely his presence in the film is a big selling point.
Also -- and here's the best part -- it's an original motion picture, which the movie-going population is always screaming for: Finally, a movie not based on a graphic novel, TV show, or toy! At least, that's what people always say; it doesn't necessarily mean they'll run out to support this unique offering.
