Review : Jupiter Ascending


“In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by the ruthless son of a powerful family who lives on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant “

The best way to describe this movie is, it’s so pretty to look at, doesn’t make too much sense. Let me explain. So all of the visuals in this movie are seriously on point. When the film was first delayed, we were told it was to ad more special effects, so cheers I guess. That was never going to a surprise as this is from the people who brought us The Matrix and films like Speed Racer, that even if you didn’t like, they were damn good to look at. The story itself however, does need some work. Many of the plot points seem to serve no real purpose other than to make Channing Tatum do more cool ass gravity boots shit (he was also for some reason, not just a space werewolf, but a space werewolf albino runt). That kind of thing sums up the major flaw with this movie, a lot of things happen for no real reason that makes sense, and that happens for the ENTIRE movie, just one random act after another. Then we have Eddie Redmayne, and, well, we all know you can act, so I won’t hold this movie against you. That’s all I’m going to say about him. So all in all this is a very average plot, couples with some very good visuals, and not much more.

Review Score : 5 out of 10
