Even The DIRECTOR Said He *beep* Up The Movie!
I respect his honesty and I absolutely agree with him.
Even if some of the fans try to paint this film with a golden brush it is clearly not up to snuff and he knows it.
"I *beep* It Up" Neill Blomkamp Says.
"I feel like ultimately the story is not the right story. I still think the satirical idea of a ring filled with rich people hovering above the impoverished Earth is an awesome idea. I love it so much, I almost want to go back and do it correctly. But I just think the script wasn’t… I just didn’t make a good enough film is ultimately what it is. I feel like I executed all of the stuff that could be executed, like costume and set design and special effects very well. But ultimately it was all resting on a somewhat not totally formed skeletal system, so the script just wasn’t there…"
If there was any lingering doubt that Elysium was a mediocre film from a very talented director I hope this clears that up.
