'Elysium' delivers action, destruction and a deeper message on life

by Wochit 0:58 mins

Director Neill Blomkamp and leading man Matt Damon mostly want summer filmgoers to be completely entertained by the action-packed, sci-fi thriller "Elysium." But if the audience could also ponder the question of what to do about world poverty and inequality, well, that would be a bonus. "Elysium," which opens this weekend, is not the typical light summer fare served up in big-budget Hollywood productions. And Blomkamp, the South African who made waves with his first feature, "District 9," is no typical director. ... Matt Damon deliberately takes a light-hearted approach to his charity work in case the public is put off by preaching celebrities. The Bourne Identity star is a high-profile campaigner for Water.org, which helps to raise awareness of the millions of families around the world who have no access to clean drinking water.
