The Wachowskis' vision has turned out to be kitsch: reheated tales of good v evil and interplanetary conflict, all dressed up in HR Giger-meets-RuPaul couture.

[Jupiter Ascending] blends astonishing special effects work with plotting that would barely pass muster in a bad Saturday morning episode of Flash Gordon or Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Visionaries often lose their way in their own visions. The majority of moviemakers and movies stick to outdated, predictable formulas and conventions. The Wachowskis, on the other hand, are not afraid to strand you early and often in Jupiter Ascending.

Even if you adore the idea of the Wachowskis, there comes a point when it would be foolish to deny the disappointing reality. That point has arrived, and the film is called "Jupiter Ascending."

We should expect a little more from the Wachowskis than this.

It's all very chaotic and entertaining, like a bizarre cult sci-fi TV show that somehow survived a threat of mid-season cancellation.

"Jupiter Ascending" is the film equivalent of a baseball slugger unleashing a huge swing and missing.

Anyone hoping for the old Matrix magic to rematerialize (it's been 15 years) is due for more disappointment.

A disappointing step backwards for the Wachowskis, who lose themselves in an over-designed, underdeveloped 'Star Wars'-style land grab in space.

You have to hand it to Lana and Andy Wachowski: they don't do things by halves.

There is no "up" in space, and there is no "the top" over which The Wachowskis will not go in Jupiter Ascending, a sci-fi saga that's convoluted and silly, but also exciting and enthralling over the course of its two-hours-and-change running time.
