* BulletsDoNotWorkThatWay: Max's 7.62 airburst rounds. Airburst setting is used to ipmrove fragmentation damage - it's hard to assume that fragments from small bullet will be more powerful, than bullet itself. More believable would be rounds, set to explode after penetrating droid's body.

* KatanasAreJustBetter: Kruger, a South African commando, carries around a katana as part of his standard gear and whips it out in a few situations where bullets still might be flying. RealityEnsues when he tries using it against Max's exosuit; the blade is ruined in just a few swings.

* SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay: Elysium doesn't have a roof -- the shuttles are able to enter and land anywhere on the habitat ring. On a structure smaller than a planet, centrifugal force and high walls shouldn't be enough to keep air from leaking out, and there's no indication that the atmosphere is held in by a force field, even though force field technology exists as applied to Kruger's personal shield.

* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The film takes the "White Flight Syndrome" social phenomenon and boosts it ''way'' past UpToEleven: the titular space station is essentially a suburb/man-made country for the hyper-rich to which they have moved to; leaving the increasingly-CrapsackWorld that is Earth (with its immense levels of overpopulated poor) to rot.
