Jupiter Ascending is an innovative and absolutely stunning visual display of sci-fi space adventures. The story is imperfect, yet appropriately complex and satisfying.

Let me have my stupid fun, my wacky fable with winged lizards wearing clothes. I love you, Jupiter Ascending, and I don't care who knows it.

Jupiter Ascending is just nutty enough to be entertaining.

Because however dark their stories get, the Wachowskis clearly have hope, and they hold that above all.

It's a campy, cheesy, gleeful tribute to the space opera, an episode of Flash Gordon with a limitless bank account. All that's missing is Freddie Mercury screeching "Jupiter ahhh! Savior of the universe!"

The film is fine. Honestly, if you're looking for a sci-fi movie for a tween, rent Guardians of the Galaxy.

Ever wondered what Cinderella, The Godfather and Teen Wolf would be like if they were one movie? No? Well, too bad because Jupiter Ascending exists.
March 15, 2018
This is a film completely from the hearts of the Wachowskis, blending science fiction with themes straight out of children's fairy tales, and told with some of the most stunning visual designs this side of the asteroid belt.

Sprawling and over-long as it is, this is a movie with a good heart and a sense of humour.
June 5, 2017
But if you want to be entertained by pretty pictures and wildly talented actors at their loudest possible setting, Jupiter Ascending has your number.
May 22, 2016
Given the ambitions the Wachowskis have shown in the Matrix films and Cloud Atlas, this is rather retrograde as both filmmaking and storytelling, but there is a charge to their pulp sci-fi paperback cover come to life.
April 14, 2016
A work of great vision without much clarity, drunk on possibility to the point that it inevitably crumples into a heap in the corner.
February 24, 2016
While problematic in sections, Jupiter Ascending delivers on its promise.
December 30, 2015
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.
October 21, 2015
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.
October 21, 2015
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.
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.
August 17, 2015
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 9, 2015
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.
May 30, 2015
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.
