Review: The Wolverine and Elysium

Review: The Wolverine and Elysium


We’ve got reviews for two movies currently drawing people to the cinemas; The Wolverine starring Hugh Jackman and Matt Damon’s sci-fi movie Elysium to help you further decide if to go check them out at the cinema or skip them.

The Wolverine is based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before. teaser has nothing but action scenes in it with sword fights and Wolverine proving, yet again, that he can keep on going.

I don’t know why I love it when Japanese people are in a movie. This movie was outstanding another great film for 2013. This year has been so impressive so far. Hugh Jackman no doubt is amazing great action scenes great story great ending and even better after the credit what happens. This movie was catchy and you can’t turn away from the screen I loved it alot.

Rating: A huge 9/10 (a must see.)


Elysium is set in the year 2154, 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 Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

My Take On It:

No doubt Matt Damon is superb Jodie foster is magnificent, the director has created an amazing world, the only thing it lacked this movie is more about Elysium than just earth, he did not take us more in depth about it and all it’s features and more. The movie was good, amazing special effects and an incredible ending however I didn’t see much of Elysium.

Rating: 8/10 (All in all a good movie)
