The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - FILM - RED OB­SES­SION (PG)

Matt Da­mon is out from be­hind the can­de­labra with a shaven head, a six-pack and a bad dose of ra­di­a­tion poi­son­ing. This as­pires to weighty themes; the Ar­mani-clad haves (led by a wooden Jodi Foster) colonise outer space a shut­tle ride away in a sealed haven that looks like Sin­ga­pore while the havenots scrab­ble for crumbs on earth. It lacks the el­e­gance of Wolver­ine or Pa­cific Rim; apoc­a­lypse with­out laughs.
