Jupiter Ascending (2015)



Critic Consensus: Pleasing to the eye but narratively befuddled, Jupiter Ascending delivers another visually thrilling misfire from the Wachowskis.

Where were the Guardians of the Galaxy when we needed them? If only they had prevented the disastrous atrocity that is "Jupiter Ascending" from infiltrating Earth's movie theaters before it was too late!

Top Critic

Channing Tatum plays a flying wolfman from space, and yet this film is, somehow, boring.

The Skinny

Another two hours hanging out in the Wachowskis' world. There's a groovy, multicultural, pansexual vibe where all are welcome and the deliberately artificial visuals are to die for.

Spliced Personality

Jupiter Ascending is a gigantic, soulless misfire from the Wachowskis, bringing with it a nonsensical plotline and characters that are in desperate need of development.

Full Review… | June 1, 2015

Jupiter Ascending is like the cantina scene in Star Wars. It's a mixed bag of creatures, concepts and characters.

The Young Folks

It's simply movie hooey, but if you're up for a space epic and your expectations are low, Jupiter Ascending delivers for a while, then uses big battles to coast to an ending.

Holy moly........

Oh my. Jupiter ought to have just sat down until she had a good story to tell. The story is strange and forced, albeit with nice special effects. There's little chemistry between Tatum and Kunis. Undoubtedly, this film must be Redmayne's biggest embarrassment since his performancee is so hammy and unnatural, and since it comes on the heals of "The Theory of Everything". "Jupiter Ascending" really is not very worth watching.

It gives good attention to the details of its universe and has a stunning visual design, but the plot is derivative, with an excess of dei ex machina (the handsome guy always has to save the narrow-minded lady in danger) and lame aliens who display the same cultural habits as humans.
