Plot Outline:

In this universe, humans are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. Born under a sign of prophecy, Jupiter Jones finds herself as a lowly janitor - dreaming big, but getting nothing but bad breaks. But her perfect DNA signature could tip the entire balance of the universe, and the current queen will stop at nothing to make sure Jupiter won't fulfill her destiny. -- Chris Kavan

There is a good story somewhere in Jupiter Ascending, but the film feels so rushed and throws so much at you that all you get is action, action, an attempt at explaining things and yet more action. While Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum have certainly proven they have appeal - there is little chemistry going on in this movie. Eddie Redmayne vamps it up while Sean Bean surprisingly doesn't die! It wasn't as bad as I was expecting - but it's dumb sci-fi trying to look smart and that's it.

"Jupiter Ascending" is like a cross between the "Fifth Element" and "Dune". I don't understand why they made Jupiter a russian. Her russian family were boring dumkofts.

Saw this by accident (ticketing mix up) and was rather bewildered by the whole thing. I enjoyed Eddie Redmayne camping it up in futuristic fetish wear, but I recommend napping through everything else. Oh, and the Kafka-meets-Dickens-meets-Star Trek sequence about navigating space bureaucracy seemed to belong to different, better movie. Shame we didn't get to see more of that one.

"Jupiter Ascending" by Yojimbo

An ordinary young woman is rescued from alien killers and finds that she is not a cleaner after all, but a genetic descendant of an ancient intergalactic dynasty who stands to literally inherit the Earth.

This space opera from the Wachowskis has a very old school feel to it; it has the "Come with me if you want to live!" character dynamic and a plot that owes a lot to the likes of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. The Saturday morning serial feel is added to by a very episodic plot as our heroine is constantly kidnapped, rescued and kidnapped again by the various factions out to exploit her. The effects are pleasing enough and have a Dune-like quality in their representation of an intergalactic empire although the action sequences are so frenetically paced it often becomes difficult to tel...

Jupiter Ascending is an odd but not awful epic...

The latest wannabe blockbuster from Warner Brothers Pictures is the sprawling and overwrought space opera Jupiter Ascending. Almost as notorious as Waterworld or John Carter in as far as its reputation is concerned, it is not as entertaining as those box office flops are. While those titles are entertaining in a goofy B movie fashion, Jupiter Ascending has far loftier pretensions, fancying itself as the next Star Wars.
It certainly has ambition and no one can fault it for going all the way. But it is often po-faced and serious about its own self-importance, it becomes a bloated self indulgent affair at certain parts. But it's not completely bad and honestly, while I didn't enjoy it, I'm sure that casual audiences will find what they're looking for because the movie is constructed from a...

'Jupiter ASS-ending'

'Jupiter Ascending' is the latest debacle from the declining talents of the Wachowski siblings. Another original sci-fi creation of theirs involving a huge scope and massive amounts of fantastical imagery that is ultimately hollow. Yes, the effects are pretty damn impressive at times. The vast array of alien species and futuristic technology is ever expanding. Those are literally the only positives I can come up with. Our main characters are completely mis-cast, have little-to-no personality, and exhibit no believable emotions towards one another despite their forced attraction. The entire story is so simple, but the sprawling plot and overly political dialogue would have you think otherwise. Three siblings, each wanting to rule Earth alone, take turns trying to convince the heroin...
