      Jupiter Ascending Reviews

      Prev Next

      No amount of visual pyrotechnics, no matter how spectacular, can save such a tired, weak story.

      Full Review | Original Score: C- | Jul 6, 2020

      The storytelling is clumsy, the characters are befuddling, and the Wachowskis' action sequences - once so graceful and thrilling - are ugly, noisy, and worst of all, boring.

      Full Review | May 30, 2016

      Aggressively dull and terribly paced.

      Full Review | Original Score: D+ | Apr 17, 2015

      Directors Lana and Andy Wachowski excel at creating fantastic new worlds lurking under the surface of our own, but in Jupiter Ascending, they've overstuffed the turkey with too many tangents and false endings.

      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!

      I still don't know what Jupiter Ascending is about but, wow, what a ride.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Feb 20, 2015

      A lot of people spent a lot of time and a lot of money making a lot of movie, but there's not much there.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4 | Feb 10, 2015

      The Wachowskis create a churning, swooping C.G.I. universe that's decorated to the corners of the frame without taste or imagination.

      When it comes to bonkers, overcooked, overambitious sci-fi, writer/directors Andy and Lana Wachowski really are in a world of their own.

      Don't even get me started on the aliens, many of whom would have been turned away from the cantina door in Mos Eisley.

      Redmayne's farcical grandiosity harkens back to science-fiction serials of the 1930s, but unfortunately so does Jupiter's passivity throughout the film.

      Jupiter Ascending is inane from first frame to last - the dialogue is so clunky, I wondered if George Lucas had been brought in to do the rewrite.

      Full Review | Feb 6, 2015

      Upon exiting, my wearied delight with Jupiter Ascending coexisted with pure bafflement. But I exited knowing that I'd seen a movie no other filmmaker could have made.

      Full Review | Feb 6, 2015

      This sci-fi-inflected fantasy has many a wince-worthy romantic exchange between stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4 | Feb 6, 2015

      This movie often plays like a super-expensive, 21st-century version of one of those "Star Wars" knockoffs made around 1980 by people who weren't George Lucas.

      Full Review | Feb 6, 2015

      Jupiter Ascending's early cleverness dries up quickly, especially when Kunis is offscreen, leaving us with just another incoherent sci-fi spectacle.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Feb 6, 2015

      This kind of pandering FX padding, unnurtured by humor or heart, is what shifts Jupiter Ascending from a shambles to a fiasco. The Wachowskis wind up where you never expected to find them creatively: on the ropes.

      A beautiful muddle from The Matrix-making Wachowski siblings.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Feb 6, 2015

      A big, woozy, spacey fairy tale with a science-fiction exoskeleton and a core of pure mush.

      Full Review | Feb 6, 2015

      "Technically, I'm an alien," Mila Kunis voice-overs, by way of introduction to this epically kitschy space opera ...
