There are a lot of great ideas struggling to find their way out of this misshapen hulk of a film.

Jupiter Ascending feels like some sweatshop-factory assembly of tidbits vaguely recalled from the last 40 years of fantasy, adventure, and sci-fi movies, and hoarded into a forcible orgy of mostly joyless cosplay.

It may fall well short of being a meaningful sci-fi classic, but Jupiter Ascending is a campy visual sci-fi spectacle that could very well become a cult classic.

An empty viewing experience, that promised much and delivered little.

It does seem like the Wachowskis are much more in tune with aliens than they are with their own earthling kinfolk.

Jupiter Ascending is my first guilty pleasure of the year, and like a Snickers bar, it's deliciously gooey and nutty at the same time.

Jupiter Ascending is kind of goony and more than a little cheesy. But it has some absolutely spectacular highs, including an astonishingly complicated chase over and through Chicago that seems like the reason IMAX 3D was invented.

The seamless rendering of winged giant lizard henchmen and ornate spiracle space stations conjures up a transporting spectacle of wonderment that goes far to paint over the film's bland, derivative blemishes.

The effects are good. The film is well shot. But the performances are awful.

It's a decent idea that was overwhelmed by excess story and excess effects. Jupiter may be ascending, but its audience will leave shrugging.
September 17, 2015
by its second half Jupiter Ascending abandons big, crazy ideas for a default mode of repetitive action sequences, losing along the way both its distinctive weirdness and the viewer's attention.

Is Jupiter Ascending a good film? It's practically impossible to tell. For all its abundant insanity, it's never anything less than watchable.
June 26, 2015
Channing Tatum plays a flying wolfman from space, and yet this film is, somehow, boring.

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.

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.

Jupiter Ascending is like the cantina scene in Star Wars. It's a mixed bag of creatures, concepts and characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

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.

Memo to Wachowskis: If you must load your script with bizarre names and concepts, don't let your actors mumble and whisper, and don't drown them out with music and explosions.

Thankfully though, there is enough originality in here to please hardcore sci-fi fans.

By the time Caine's gone back for the girl for the nth time, smashing through mega-buildings much like the story keeps razing any depth or profundity, you'll feel like telling one of the writer-directors, "Hey, your movie's Descended Into Uranus."
