Optimal size, good price, fast shipping from the U.K. to Austria!
Very well done; a lot of information, designs of various machines and settings, even tattoos, in different concept-phases.
Sometimes a bit bloody-minded: showing less of it in the movie was the right decision. Max's transformation and sacrifice as well as Carlyle's "brain-rape" would have been quite a mess to actually see. Anyway gamers will like it...
In the movie – next to cyborgs – it's all about humanoids not droids/androids. The book 'corrects' it. Someone just might have thought, calling these artificial beings some sort of robots they really are would have been kind of a sound-pollution.
In the movie, we live the year 2154, in the book it is 2159 though – seems a bit unreal for all that huge outer space stuff: but hey you never know...
Neither bother Krugers exaggerated "The Time Machine (1960)"-like facial reconstruction nor his temporary fighter-yackety-yak.
Watch out for – "Behind the scenes" on YouTube – those life acting impressions come way too short in the book and no need to mention Ryan Amons musical masterpiece with it's cool compositional complexity.
Mr. Blomkamp, will you become a new Cameron? It seems you are on that course... It would be a pleasure to spend us a 2nd 3D-round: so do it again, señor Max!
Ps: Jodie Foster’s excellent testosterone brimming performance as Elysiums defence secretary Delacourt has just been outstanding: a hard-line queen-bee with killer instinct on an orbiting man-made super-luxury-hive.
Yo, real big mama...
All together: Yes, yes, yes - more than just ordinary sci-fi bigotry - it's a vision - let the Oscars roll!

Schönes, hochwertiges Buch für Fans von Set & Prop Design und natürlich Film Enthusiasten im allgemeinen.
Hochwertiger Einband, guter Druck massen von Konzepten und Skizzen die man im Film nicht zu sehen bekommt (Teilweise deutlich besser als das was nachher umgesetzt wurde, wie so oft wurden hier innovative Ansätze dem Mainstream geopfert) Blomkamp und Weta Workshop zeigen wieder wunderschönes Film Design ab welches im Buch ausführlich in Bild und Text erläutert wird.
