Jupiter AscendingJupiter Ascending is the story of Jupiter Jones who was born under a night sky out in the sea with all the signs predicting she is destined for greatness. The story takes place in Chicago where Jupiter grows up living with relatives crammed in an apartment and dreaming of the stars but wakes up with the reality that she is a cleaning lady for other people’s houses.

Her endless run of bad breaks turns around when she met Caine Wise who is a genetically engineered former military hunter. Caine is from another galaxy and came to Earth to locate Jupiter as she is to inherit a royal kingdom; Jupiter is the genetic reincarnation of an ancient queen, a matriarch of a royal family who owns a large portion of the universe which includes the Earth. This family has a business which involves harvesting the population of planets in order to extract an elixir that extends life, making people younger.

Jupiter Ascending has a very thin plot with a basic story of a villain from space and comes to earth in order to harvest people and expand their own universe. It is poorly written with corny dialogue and the fight scenes above the Chicago skyline is not watchable.

Jupiter Ascending 1While the movie has a thin plot it has great style and stunning visuals and special effects. Custom design is great specially the rich and ornate gowns worn by Mila Kunis; the white gown with red embellishment she wore for the arranged wedding is stunning. The customs worn by the other characters looks edgy and stunning as well.

Jupiter Ascending is not a bad movie but then it is not good either.

It stars Mila Kunis as Jupiter Jones, Channing Tatum as Caine, Eddie Redmayne as Balem Abrasax, Douglas Booth as Titus Abrasax, Sean Bean as Stinger Apini. Written and directed by Lana Wachoski and Andy Wachoski.

    Don’t understand why critics did not like this movie, watched it on Netflix and I loved it. Great story, plot and story telling is very good not a dull moment.

    This is not the greatest sci-fi movie of 2015 but not the worst, I don’t understand why it is included on the Razzie award, it is so unfair. Eddie Redmayne was even nominated for the worst spporting actor, what??????????

    This is a visually stunning movie but the dialogues are way too cheesy. Not good but not bad either.

    Jupiter Ascending is a movie where some people are going to love it and a whole bunch more people are going to hate it. This is more of a visual movie, a feast for the eyes.

    It may have a weak plot/story but the production design is stunning, that alone is worth the ticket to see it. Marvelous production design.

    Story is a bit weak even shallow but production design is super. Movie made for 3D viewing. Specifically love the dress and gowns worn by the women characters all stunning. Plot may not have been impressive but who cares it is a good movie.

    This is the movie to be watched in 3D, the visuals are super good so with the customs worn specially thye gowns and the music is super good too. I really didn’t care for the plot, the visuals is mesmerizing. A+ for special effects and B+ on story and plot.

    Don’t understand why critics did not like this movie, some saying this movie is more of a style than substance. Well the movie is visually stunning but don’t see the plot at week at all. This is one great movie, love it.

    Not as good as Matrix but this is typical Warchoski movie, confusing but visually stunning and great action. This is one movie that gets better when you repeatedly watch it. It could have been better but still a good movie. Tempted to see it again.
