...may be a treat for the eyes, but you'll probably be rolling them throughout most of its running time.

Who is it that keeps casting Jim Sturgess in movies? His range is limited to goofy smiles and pained looks of unrequited love - all that's required for this film.

'Upside Down,' in terms of its visuals, is gorgeous and clever and creative.

A work of bracingly singular imagination that is sheer visual pleasure, with some mind-bending ideas and a deeply romantic sensibility.

The only problem is that, after creating the most wonderful fantastic frame, "Upside Down" doesn't devise a picture worthy of it.

The novelty of the idea, which suggests a less elegant offshoot of M. C. Escher drawings, quickly wears thin. The production design is too busy, and the film's desaturated palette is forbiddingly austere.

Just enjoy its dazzling visuals, dream-like inventiveness and lush romanticism.

March 14, 2013
An imperfect but perfectly gorgeous experience, a motion picture of quite literal cosmic enlightenment with the creativity and gall to put most run-of-the-mill movie releases to shame.

March 14, 2013
At a time when so many movies look alike, and studio productions sometimes look aggressively ugly, here's a quirky vision at the intersection of sci-fi and romance.
March 14, 2013
Despite its undeniably clever conceit and visuals, this love story set in twin worlds remains earthbound.

Timothy Spall enlivens this as a crafty engineer in the corporation where Dunst and Sturgess work, but they're all just props in a dream whose logic hasn't been quite worked out.
March 14, 2013
Though "Upside Down" starts with a strong idea, its compelling conceit is immediately weighed down by leaden execution.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen. An instant landmark of crap.

What is expected of the viewer is simply to swallow the material whole and focus on the love story.

Moment for moment, Upside Down is the most embarrassing, hilarious, obliviously stupid movie since M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, and its constant pursuit of a striking image over any other consideration undermines it at every turn.
Full Review | Original Score: D-

Is the film something to look at? Yes. "Upside Down" is something to look at. But that's not enough for a full-length, full-bodied, romance.

Juan Diego Solanas directs a film that's like nothing I've ever seen before.
