Itís rare to encounter a film where the prospects of irradiated cyborgs battling in space better comports with reality than the directorís grasp of economics. Thatís what writer and director Neill Blomkamp has achieved, however, with Elysium, which explores interesting social and political themes that mostly involve Matt Damon fighting straw-man Republicans in space. Itís like the Occupy Wall Street movement remade Blade Runner.
