No, not really. Oblivion is more like I am legend out in space. Elysium is not about post-apocalyptic but about how in the future there's a more a separation between the rich and poor class. Like the saying we have now...the rich gets richer, the poor gets poorer. Well this takes it to the next level the rich gets to live on Elysium where you see that lady gets scanned for cancer and it's removed simply like a wart
I Think the premise is great and right my alley of fascinating movie plot. Btw did anyone notice Jodie Foster there, I barely recognized her. She was also in another one of my fav premise Contact about a worm hole out to another universe. I also think this Neill Blomkamp cat is the next Ridley Scott?James Camerson rolled up in one, this is what only his 2nd film and he's hitting them out of the ball park. I'll be anxiously waiting for all his upcoming films.
