Re: Elysium - grade/review and spoilers - also controversy

Solid follow up to District 9. I'd say that District 9 had a more involving story, but Elysium was a damn good action movie with impeccable visuals. Not a single thing looked fake. The space station, the barrio, the space ships... it all looked amazingly realistic. How does he manage it?! And why do all other movies look so CGI-y?
I think the era of the obvious CGI is pretty much over. STID's FX even with complex cities and orbital FX were flawless. Elysium looked just about as good as anything I've seen.
