“ The visual effects are similarly inventive, complement the scenery wonderfully and are tremendously colorful and thrilling – especially if you can see them in IMAX 3-D.
“ It is also easily the most entertaining part of the film.
“ And there are a few action sequences (such as the firefight above Chicago) that have some novel features that make them unique and even a little exciting at times.
“ the plot was for 7 year olds, the characters were weird, the whole darn story line was stupid and hard to follow, the worst part was that it would not end!
“ Dialogues - laughable dull mess, written by a bot, who was forced to read all Paulo Cohelo books.
“ Here is why I think the movie does not suck: The plot of the movie and the story behind it paints a picture of our world (Earth) today and its socioeconomic mindset, but on a mind boggling universe grand scale.
“Bad guy Douglas Booth was charged with providing the mild attempt at providing something unexpected, a titanic task given the flat and utterly predictable (bed time?
“ The plot is so ridiculously uninspiring and sleep-inducing that it's making me yawn even as I think about it now, whilst simultaneously making me cringe so hard, I feel like I am looking at early photos of my dress sense in the 1990's.
“The movie was really boring and not worth watching.
“ On occasions like this at the cinema, I always have my phone on standby so I can amuse myself with a game of Scrabble or surf the Web during the more tedious parts (Don't worry peeps, the sound is muted and I'm sitting at the back so no-one can see the glare.
“ I tried to see what was so bad about this entertaining film and frankly speaking I could not.
“Our ability to devise and parse as viewers an aerial chase as the first one in the film, a stunning piece, among the most impressive I've seen.
“ Movie is visually stunning.
“ The cinematographyis breathtaking!
“ I had a lot more fun with this piece of retro science-fiction than the religious exercises of 'Interstellar', '2001', or the increasingly ponderous Star Wars franchise.
“ Mila Kunis's character is very boring and emotionless, with her most emotional scenes involves her saying "Holy crap
“ Visually stunning though a few cgi moments does ruin the moment during a few scenes.
“ There are SO many good stories that have never been made but the thinking was 'it's our money, we'll make our kind of crap' I would say children and teens will enjoy it and older people if they are a little slow.
“ The visuals were stunning.
“ Ultimately, the movie was just fun enough to be worth watching, once you get past the abysmally cobbled together story.
“ The trailer is the only part of this movie worth watching.
“ The movie lacked in many areas, and one of those is failing to have at least one stunning fight/war scene.
“ I was completely immersed in this creation by the end and left wanting more.
“ These are just a few of the elements that have found their way into the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink screenplay that Lana and Andy Wachowski ("The Matrix") have concocted for "Jupiter Ascending," an eclectic sci-fi extravaganza that is just preposterous and goofy enough to be entertaining.
“ She is this uncertain protagonist that is kinda being dragged from one situation to another.
“The story line is boring and predictable, the romance between the two main characters is awkward and unlikely at best, and their conversations are badly written.
“ This is action from the people who made The Matrix, a total classic with awesome action, why is the action here so.. bland?
“Overblown, repetitive and ridiculous plot that isnt well thought-out.
“ A stunning Sci-Fi 'Steam-punk' journey .
“ For visuals this movie was stunning, special effects were great.
“ They take their action packed skit from 2012's Cloud Atlas and stretch it to a full length featurette.
“ It's an empty, boring experience, with the Wachowski's demonstrating little care with the script ("Bee's don't lie," - one character says with a straight face), and even less with avoiding lazy plot-holes (it takes one crashed ship to bring down a planetary base?
“ The Matrix used contemporary Metal and Techno music in the coolest ways possible, to amp up the action to adrenaline pumping heights.
“ but it is completely forgivable because it is so exceptionally entertaining.
“ To have one without out the other, is as pointless and dangerous as giving an ever faster car for a toddler to drive.
“ Positives -Excellent Visuals -Channing Tatum is entertaining -Some funny government satireNegatives -Boring -The character Jupiter Jones -Repetitive action scenes that go on for too long -Most characters are either bland or too over the top.
“ A very generic and over told storyline about someone discovering they arn't who they think they are, falling in love with someone they shouldn't and ending up happy as larry at the end, is told through an absolute maze of boring CGI action scenes and snippets of information you are just supposed to string together, whilst having your visual field bombarded by more CGI action.
“ If you like this movie good for you but I'm sorry this was just dull.
“ This one has much better visuals and is far more exciting.
“ Everyone hates the script, everyone hates the acting (I have to agree a little on that) everyone says it's meaningless and boring and long.
“ While remaining visually stunning, the film flattens down and loses itself in lazy Hollywood clichés: Lame love story, one dimensional characters, bad one liners.
“ I stared this film a 3, 1 being 'Mila Kunis' is in it, 2 it was aesthetically pleasing during the slower scenes and 3 i was being generous with the extra star.
“ The editor must have been on vacation because the actions drones on and on for no apparent reason.
“ An action, Sci-Fi, beautifully staged romantic film that I will be watching again for the stunning realistic Steam-punk scenery and equipment and the fantastically portrayed action scenes.
“Overall, I thought the film was very entertaining, anchored on the charisma of Jupiter and Cain, as played by Kunis and Tatum.
“ Just Boring .
“ The action sequences are great, lots of fun, and keep you on the edge of your seat.
“ All of this is presented in a matter-of-fact, almost casually realistic way: Caine sports pointed ears as a hint to the strain of wolf in his genes, alien races subsist alongside space- faring humans, and the scientific notion of DNA is given an intriguing spiritual twist.
“ This was a great action movie, and it was visually stunning .
“ They had all this talk about the harvest of the earth but nothing happened.
“ The whole movie reeks with pretentious characters.
“ I admit that the rescue operation at the beginning of the film in which Caine prevents Jupiter being abducted by alien "Keepers", while flying around on his jet-like roller skates, was a breathtaking part that lasted for ages.
“ Worst Movie I Have Ever Seen .
“ Even the most dramatic and intense scenes are turned into hilarious moment (not only speaking of this weird elephant things).
“ It's like listening to a conference at work and your boss is speaking in this monotone dreary voice.
“ PLEASE like and share this review if you enjoyed it, drop a comment, and LET'S TALK MOVIES!
“ Above all that's the movie is pretentious and tries to be "serious" which fails pretty dismantle.
“ Is entertaining, althoguh Mila Kunis is sooooo bad!!!!.
“ The casting is awful; they have chosen very blank and uninteresting actors that fill their roles without trying.
“ As for the action, it was too jittery and hard to follow during the Chicago attack.
“ trite, juvenile fare with a ridiculous plot .
“ (It wasn't - it was as silly as this movie, but a helluva a lot more ponderous and leaden.
“ Confusing and irrational actions and reactions of characters 7.
“ I am glad I did not spend any money to view this ridiculous, confusing sci-fiction(hope this is not insulting s/f fans).
“ I went to watch this movie today because I needed something visually entertaining for my brain, and this definitely did its job.
“ The romantic relationship between Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis' characters was beyond cliché.
“ Life is tiresome and routine and she secretly longs for more.
“ But let's keep serious: Every movie with Mila Kunis is worth watching, so I give it some stars.
“ The story is easy to follow, and its an entertaining movie.
“This movie and Cloud Atlas strike me as propaganda for Scientology or some other space-age religion.
“ Now, I admit, I went in expecting it to be as awful as everyone said, but I enjoyed it.
“Overall though, despite its tantalizing movie poster and the exciting, swashbuckling antics of star Tatum (and even co-star Sean Bean who plays the Han Solo-like, Stinger), nothing can mask the notion that Jupiter Ascending is still just another, all too familiar action adventure.
“ The visual aesthetics are intense and beautiful.
“ I was looking for a nice fiction action movie and i got one of the worst movies ever.
“ One of the worst movies I've ever watched.
“ Breathtaking production design, generally excellent acting, unmistakable Giacchino score, and an answer to the question "If you had unlimited wealth and power, what would you want next?
“ Don't let all the negative critics stop you from watching this: it is a feast for eyes (and sometime ears), special effects are amazing and some action scenes are incredibly fast paced.
“ just a waste of time .
“Action-wise, it is fairly well-filled, though much like the Transformers movies, the action does quickly become very ho-hum.
“Mila Kunis is possibly the most bland actor in this movie, maybe in any movie that's come out this year so far.
“ Which I think was unexpected for many people.
“ Very Exciting And Compelling movie.
“ I found it interesting and entertaining, which is my bottom line for all films, and it kept my attention to the end.
“ Definitely entertaining to watch and has a few funny moments too.
“ Highly enjoyable.
“It was a pretty fun fast paced science fiction movie, pretty bonkers at parts for sure.
“ The hero, wolf-man, alien warrior, Caine Wise (Channing Tatum) is dull.
“In quick summation, with all the extra time bought by shelving the film they obviously shot or reshot loads more confusing action sequences to "entertain" us all more.
“ The plot makes you guess and assume too many things for way too long, and has so many characters that all mean absolutely nothing to you, they couldn't even get you to care about anyone except maybe a little bit for Mila Kunis.
“ The plot is so confusing and the characters are so difficult to keep track of that I just stopped caring toward the end.
“ It's Exciting and Hits with a Powerful Punch and is quite Entertaining (for those without the brain beanie).
“ There are also some very unbearable lines in the movie that is just ridiculous.
“ The story (if you can call it that) is minimal, boring, predictable and basically comes down to a fight for real estate.
“ Action packed, romantic, funny, and visually amazing!
“ This is an enjoyable and very watchable film, I have watched it on repeats and don't bore of it, and the fact it has Channing Tatum in it is just the cherry on the top ;-)
“ The hairs on my arm stood up, it was truly breathtaking and unique.
“ Generally Entertaining, Thanks to Mila and Channing .
“I mentioned The Chronicles of Riddick before, which is conceptually very similar but which I found much more entertaining.
“ Visually stunning and full of new creatures, ships, weapons, and world's.
“An initially plain and boring protagonist, chosen to save the world - sound familiar?
“ The ending of this movie is pretty predictable, so don't wait for something not seen.
“Save your money.
“ Adding too much CGI doesn't make a movie any better, because it's repetitive and boring.
“ The visuals were absolutely stunning.
“ You end with no subtleties, a predictable development and overall, one dimensional and under-developed characters for what could have become a space odyssey and franchise.
“ Good enjoyable sci film film - doesn't deserve the negative reviews.
“ It is a truly entertaining story of modern Cinderella sucked in a galactic battle for power and well, more time.
“ When you're six years old, and you're bored...
“While the visual effects were stunning, the same can't be said for the action sequences which were ruined by the camera-work making them more difficult to enjoy.
“ With a thrilling sequence at Chicago and more chases in space, so on.
“ I got bored of all the explosions and crashes that were used to further the plot.
“ This movie is very much like the Fifth Element: kitsch and cliché.
“ Sounds great but it's a total waste of time.
“ To start out, i'd like to say this movie did have its flaws, the 2 main characters were somewhat unoriginal, the story was semi predictable, and there were some cliché traits of your average sci-fi movie.
“ This movie was made just to show off special effects and has no story.
“ Everything was so fast paced and it should've gone deeper into the story itself.
“Overall, it's a pretty boring and predictable movie, and except visual effects nothing is good here.
“There are some political interests in this movie, but they are boring and I think that they could remove them.
“I actually enjoyed this film, my criticisms below are because I felt it was a missed opportunity to make a truly stunning film.
“ The most enjoyable parts to the film were where characters just spoke dialogue.
“Others have commented on the stunning visual design of this movie.
“ i would recommend anyone who wishes to watch this film, or even just has insomnia, and bump into this colossal failure while flipping the channels at night, to avoid it at all cost.
“ Pls don't waste your precious time with this crap.
“ Suddenly, she is the focus of an intense (wo)manhunt that spans universes.
“ great visuals, but dull story .
“ The story is so stupid, scattered, disjointed, unnecessarily convoluted, terribly written and imagined, that "The Wachowskis" now means "Complete Pandering Bullshit Because We Need More Money".
“ Highly entertaining.
“ The whole story was silly and I fell asleep.
“ The Wachowski's have a talent for creating fascinating worlds that feel complete.
“ There was a bit of mish mash of Sci-fi ideas however and the mixture of some compelling screen ideas and some rather terrible shots indicated the missing links in the collaboration with their production house the sibling directors had.
“ The movie is great story, Worth watching .
“ All the villains range from dull to laughable.
“ Honestly, the biggest drawbacks of the films were that the "strangeness" of the world presented to you (and the universe itself) doesn't feel sufficiently developed, the plot feels a tad bit cliché, and the plot seems to force the romance element on the audience around the halfway point in the film without every developing it previously.
“I raised an eyebrow at the main character's name "Jupiter Jones" but her back story was so compelling I eventually forgave it.
“The visuals in this movie are outstanding and it has one the best use of 3D technology I saw in years, the action is fantastic, the costumes are stunning , there are soldiers spliced with animal DNAs and amazing ships and technology I wish someone can make reality (flying boots and wings).
“ Somehow the plot progresses with a languid pace which isn't really the right move for an action-oriented film.
“ We're thrown into the deep end from the beginning, which is an interesting contrast to The Matrix where the strange new world got fed to the audience in palatable chunks that made the reveal intriguing.
“ If you have time to waste or if you want to make your enemy waste his time you now know what to do.
“ amazing visuals, empty story, bad casting: disappointing .
“ Visually stunning...
“ Not everything makes sense here, but it is still an adrenaline-fueled adventure ride, despite lack of a good plot!
“ But what I didn't like was how average the film's plot actually played out, with it's abundance of boring character conversations involving land ownership, I actually noticed myself getting impatient waiting for any and all dialog scenes to end and for the next action scene to come on.
“ This is actually an entertaining movie.. the bad reviews are unnecessary.
“ The storyline is a little bit convoluted and difficult to follow at times.
“Boring, boring, boring.
“ With every more outrageous scene I realized how dull and empty Hollywood life must be.
“ This makes the film too predictable.
“ Very action packed Science fiction movie from the makers of the Matrix .
“So yes, as an American movie, Jupiter Ascending is a confusing series of events that leaves the viewer wondering what is going on.
“ Predictable .
“ This was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
“ Some of the action scenes were too long for my taste, but the story was thoroughly entertaining and I wish there was a sequel.
“ For all of the visual splendor of the film, I found it confusing and frankly somewhat boring.
“ I figured out why I disagree with the critics who say that Jupiter Ascending is fast pace and confusing.
“ The fight scenes and the climax of the film were very lousy and uninteresting.
“ I went to see this movie with my cousin hoping that it would somewhat impress us, however, we both attempted to leave the theater within the first half hour.
“ Sure, it isn't as Steve Jablonsky or Hans Zimmer, but it is good enough to go with the stunning special effects and thrill ride action, so it makes for a great movie despite any confusion from the plot.
“ Visually stunning with some of the worst writing i have had to witness .
“ Though each scene tend to make the audience intense, by having Mila Kunis make some difficult decisions, then Channing Tatum will definitely pops out to save her.
“ It's an action packed, thrilling tale that makes one dream of the stars...
“ Design - derivative and boring.
“ Given the simplicity of the plot such confusion can not have been generated easily.
“ But are you also wishing for a fascinating story filled with interesting characters, then this will be a huge disappointment.
“ It's funny, engaging, surprising.
“ It's a waste of time.
“sooo bland a character as to be almost invisible.
“ We can't be present when we are so inundated with materialistic pretty fluff, mind-numbing bright colors and monotone characters devoid of real emotion and substance.
“ The special effects are impressive and there is plenty of exciting action.
“It is worth watching a second time just for the gadgets and gizmos (loved the gravity boots), and the incredibly complex, lavish settings.
“I feel that throughout the movie it goes from visually entertaining to visually predictable, like they were trying too hard to be futuristic.
“ There are a few enjoyable character beats for Caine, too, particularly when the film delves into his history with another decommissioned inter-galactic soldier, Stinger Apini (Sean Bean).
“ This is a movie to watch and be immersed in a whole new world, be amazed by its beautiful landscapes, architecture, costumes, and by its cool gadgets (seriously, who wouldn't want flying boots like Caine's?
“ Absolutely stunning CGI.
“Like everyone says, the visuals are STUNNING.
“ I enjoyed it enough that I would buy it on DVD.
“ The story of this film is bland and boring, there is nothing unique and it does feel like you have seen it before.
“ While visually pleasing, the story, pacing and movie as a whole feel completely disjointed.
“ etc.On the surface, this movie is visually stunning.
“ This movie is like every season of Game of Thrones compressed into one amorphous blob, incoherent, lugubriously banal and incomprehensible malcontent, for the sake of being irreverently avant-garde.
“But the Wachowskis still manages to create such exciting action scenes.
“ Enjoyable for fans of epic Sci-Fi .
“ One of the worst movies i have ever seen .
“ So even beforehand you could expect interesting visuals, convoluted themes, somewhat bland characters and blazing action sequences.
“ What a waste of time/Warning: Spoilers .
“ The CGI is boring inside two minutes.
“I was pleasantly surprised, because it was better than I thought, indeed, I enjoyed it, and found some excellent ideas never before realized on film.
“ All this should make it terrible but strangely I found it all rather enjoyable.
“ Can we just scrap the "bored and kinda psycho aristocrat" character from all future movies?
“ The visuals are stunning.
“ I was bored, and laughed at points in the movie I really don't think was intentional meant to be funny.
“ But after watching it I must admit that it was too average,so many cliché , predictable scenes and plenty of CGI .
“ Ashton Kutchers partner Mila Kunis was a little bland as the heroine (the only downside I found).
“The visuals are stunning.
“The film itself is about a girl named Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) who is born on sea and lives the rest of her adult life with a very cliché Rus family who eats sausage, probably smells of vodka, and says "Stalin's balls" every time something goes wrong.
“ A convoluted plot that masquerades as a feminist sci-fi action romp, it never really gets going and besides the fake scientific lingo, the plot is the second most confusing part of the film.
“ The action scenes are over the top and visually confusing.
“It's painfully tedious, Mila Kunis is awful in this (everyone is) and Eddie Redmayne, while the funnest character, was the worst actor in this.
“ The actions were breathtaking though the timing might be more creative; hard to swallow scenes of the chief protagonist nearly jeopardizing her life while her comrades fought to rescue her - repeatedly.
“ Not for fans of substance, Jupiter Ascending is a glossy, entertaining, hot mess.
“ The movie was made by Lana & Andy Wachowski who brought you the Matrix movies, V for Vendetta, which was also bad, Cloud Atlas, which has to go down as Tom Hanks worse film ever and Speed Racer which has loads of pretty colours but no storyline.
“ This film is as entertaining as it gets!
“ Stunning and fast.
“Mila Kunis never shows much in her role, maybe cause she was not giving much to work with, she comes across kind of bland.
“ instead of interesting space battles you get overwhelmed with so much that its just plain boring and you might just fall asleep.
“ Entertaining Space Escape .
“ Even the beautiful CGI felt contrived.
“ The, despite some criticisms, was very entertaining and satisfying.
“ Well I enjoyed it!
“ Almost all action scenes feel overdrawn, dull and predictable.
“ If the writer/directors could have contrived a scene where Mila Kunis takes off her clothes, it would be ten.
“ The movie is one big cliche.
“ I vote home-world 6) The actors are engaging and accessible regardless of how many dimensions they express.
“ Don't waste your money on seeing the movie Jupiter Ascending.
“ Personally, I gave up trying to follow the movie and I ended up falling asleep several times.
“ It's like eating empty carbs with no nutritional value.
“Michael Giacchino's music fits each scene very nicely whether it is a fast paced chase scene, or a quiet and thoughtful scene.
“ They flow forward in a predictable fashion and nothing really seems to be at stake, especially because there's one too many "close call for main heroes" type of bits.
“Visually this film is stunning and in line with the greatest modern artwork in science fiction.
“ Especially the "saved at the last possible moment" cliché.
“ As Jupiter becomes queen she shows that has no personality, she acts in a very obvious way, the character does exactly what any person would imagine, absolutely predictable and boring, as an earthling she works cleaning the houses of wealthy people and this may be the reason she has no political abilities and is guided just by her feelings of love towards her family and later to her loved protector, who was first a mercenary.
“ I don't remember the last time I went to a movie, and almost walked out in the first 5 minutes to ask for a refund.
“ The story is boring, awful and you lose interest in the first 20 minutes; F/X seemed unconvincing or cheesy in some areas.
“ Characters are flat and boring and do not develop 2.
“So all in all, do watch the movie if you are bored.
“ Despite its flaws, I saw it for free and am glad I did, so I will say Jupiter Ascending is worth watching on Netflix.
“ The release date was pushed back to finish these special effects, so when I saw the end result, I was in awe at how stunning they were.
“ Bottom line: don't waste your time with this one, as there are plenty of good action / sci-fi movies out there (Matrix, Kung Fu Hustle, Constantine, I, Robot, etc.).
“ The ships are amazing, the environments stunning; the backgrounds, especially in and around Jupiter, are often breathtakingly beautiful.
“ Also the rest of the family members were bland and dull.
“ I think this is another fantastic Sci-Fi movie from Wachowskis, colorful, suspenseful, interesting plot, pretty nice script, lots of action, decent acting, decorations, excellent costumes and much more...
“Jupiter Ascending actually paints a pretty fascinating sci-fi universe.
“ There's quality special effects almost throughout and some striking visual compositions with, apparently, some kind of innovative method to filming an aerial chase over Chicago, but the story is just a confusing mess.
“ Despite the complaining from people with constipated imaginations, this is an excellent and entertaining film.
“ Entertaining .
“ Colourful but utterly confusing and non-engaging.
“ The production design by Hugh Bateup (Matrix and Superman) is imaginative and engaging.
“ If you like campy and fun science fiction, and don't mind a film with more of a female-gaze than is typical of large films in this genre, Jupiter Ascending is an enjoyable ride that's well worth the admission.
“ It was visually stunning and incredibly boring.
“ Nevertheless it's a great entertaining Sci-fi movie.
“ This is by far the worst movie I have seen for at least 10 years (Since the Aviator) - I am both disappointed and pretty p*ssed off.
“the movie is a cliché wrapped in a parody dressed as a caricature of itself.
“ Even the main characters are boring.
“ And the predictably horrible villains, coming in three acts, hardly indistinguishable, with formulaic action sequences to transition us from one to the next.
“ I really enjoyed it.
“ Even Uwe Boll's worst movie is better than this.
“ Expected cliché development throughout.
“ Worth the watch .
“ Honestly, the fact it was by the creators of the Matrix should have been the first warning - lots of great special effects, interesting plot line, but disappointing main characters, a bit hard to follow at times & a really underwhelming ending.
“ Come on people- The books and movie never claimed to be Shakespeare that should be taught in schools, but it was a fun movie and had kick ass aspects in many areas: the costumes and visuals were stunning, the acting was great by some and OK by others, the chemistry between Mila and Channing was believable, the bits of wit and comedy tossed in here and there were really amusing, and the writing was fine for the market that it was intended for which is still pretty broad in this day and age and was a joy to watch!!!
“ "Jupiter Ascending" is a collection of really expensive CGI scenes with no story.
“ It is up to you to create this stunning world you have been given a glimpse of.
“ I would say this film is on-par with John Carter of Mars, The Chronicles of Riddick and in some aspects all the marvel films (the visuals really are top notch in Jupiter) so give the plot a break and watch it for the stunning universe that they have created.
“ Not good, not bad either, it's just made for those who like the genre and are not afraid of clichés like good guys looking good, bad guys looking ugly and talking dirty and predictable betrayals.
“ Smoke or mist mirrored with smoke machines by the screen and around the seats creates a very immersed experience, like being in the film to a degree.
“ It's not a matter of "bad" I guess, it's just boring.
“As a whole I will say that this is the worst movie I've seen in the last two years and was a total waste of time and money.
“ The plot is mixed and at times in some way repetitive and hard to follow.
“ If i was to describe this film in 6 words I would say complete utter waste of money.
“ I would have walked out, except for the fact that I wouldn't get my money back.
“ Channing Tatum was Channing Tatum, he puts forth an enjoyable performance and nothing else much to say about it.
“ Worth the watch while blootered on a few substances.
“ Worst movie I've seen in a long time .
“ Uninteresting and confusing political intrigues, which nobody cares for 5.
“ If you think you've had enough cliché at this point, prepare for disappointment, when the heroine shows she doesn't have the nerve to finish off the villain, the environment predictably does it for her.
“ The really brilliant part of this film is that you leave the theater having your mind opened once again to the possibility of a universe so much larger than most of us dare to dream about.
“ (see Jeremy Jahns review for a good impression) He actually dragged the whole movie down with his stupid, stupid performance.
“ While the movie is entertaining it also contains a number of interesting and controversial ideas such as were we genetically created by ETs?
“You will leave the theater feeling like someone pick-pocketed you.
“ Really boring introduction .
“ I did have lots of whats and how questions throughout the movie which totally made me fell asleep at the middle of the action.
“ Eventually, everything comes together in an admittedly confusing mess.
“The bad: the story is just dull and convoluted.
“The acting is ho-hum, some of the actors seem to be even more confused about what kind of a mess they have been cast into, than us spectators.
“ There are much worse garbage movies out there even nominated for Oscar, this one has been attacked unfairly, I disagree with most of the criticism, because it was entertaining to watch and made me want to watch it again
“ someone pushed the "suspenseful music" button a few times in post and called it a day.
“I enjoy watching Mila Kunis on-screen, but her character, Jupiter Jones, wears a permanent "resting bitch face" for most of the film and is generally a humourless bore.
“ The graphics are stunning and it even has a female lead.
“ This is quite possibly the worst movie ever made and most definitely the worst movie I've ever seen.
“ Okay, it might look good and fancy, but fanciness cannot save Jupiter Ascending from being one of the most boring and pain-inducing sci-fi films I think I have ever sat through.
“ I could've forgiven the waste of time if the end credits had rolled to Chicago My Kind Of Town.
“If this sounds confusing or perplexing, it's because it is; "Jupiter Ascending" is only two hours long, and for a film attempting to create its own world, compile it with rich, detailed backstory, and focus on a vast array of characters of varying motivations, that's a very short runtime.
“ The main complaints that I have seen about this movie are about character development and dialog, but in ~2 hours, it's hard to develop 5-6 main characters who all have potentially fascinating back-stories.
“The story itself I found hard to follow as well, maybe because it too was just plain boring, and has been done a million times before.
“ There were way too many villains, each one confusing you even more about their intentions.
“ An unimpressed Jupiter Jones is dragged around from one world to another, where "her majesty" is blackmailed.
“ All-in-All the film was very captivating and enjoyable.
“ Usually the Wachowskis direct stunning movies.
“ everyone i know enjoyed it.
“ an extremely hard to follow film .
“ My niece at one point who was with me fell asleep and woke back up during the action scenes.
“ I would so much prefer to go to a movie like this than a dreary Marvel-based film.
“ I asked him did he want to leave and without hesitation he said " Yes " " This is A cabbage ".
“ Recently watched this film again after all these years and I have to say it was a really enjoyable sci-fi movie it delivers a story great lead characters, and is action packed with above good CGI, better then John Carter by a long shot, it is worth a watch for any sci-fi fan, totally underrated this movie really is.
“ Of course it isn't deep, but it is very entertaining, has a great cast and lots of action.
“ But the gesture seems empty when our heroine is dragged, often literally, from exposition to exposition, as a bewildered passenger in her own film.
“ The acting is littered with nauseating clichés, from silly poses and stances to boring gestures and verbal utterances.
“ Although she is as powerful as a queen in the world she discovered, she has to go through the same boring procedures a poor person has to follow in any government office.
“ First, by Mila Kunis' shallow acting, which was out of place in contrast to engaging performances from other characters.
“ I fell asleep .
“ When Mila Kunis "Jupiter Jones" proceed registration and verify her title, I had a feeling of cliché.
“ What i don't get was the origin of the universe and how did they end up with that idea, Totally confusing and nonsense.
“ This is what science fiction should be: a normal person going about her life, suddenly pulled into danger, surrounded by alien beings, and abruptly introduced to a universe that is enormous, mind- expanding and utterly unexpected.
“ There are different alien types, from reptilians to the cliché looking aliens(in crop circles) to humans with their DNA altered.
“ You keep getting introduced to new and new characters just so they can put in another explosion filled nonsense cliché action scene.
“ Waste of time .
“The first half is entertaining and has a sensational action piece to bid.
“With all the crap coming out these days it's nice to get a good fun action packed Sci-Fi epic!
“ of course not, maybe a 6 or 7, but i give it a 10 just to give some credits back for such a underrated, entertaining movie with a thoughtful story.
“But what REALLY killed it for me, what REALLY made it the first film I have walked out of in many a moon, what even the distraction of my iPhone failed to conquer was the dialogue.
“ Jupiter Ascending, while quite drawn out and a wee bit slow at times, isn't completely boring.
“ The story, the characters and dialogues are a distressing banality.
“ In fact, there are hundreds of fascinating stories that could be told about this universe.
“ There were some cool and well done entertaining action sequences in the film, but they became repetitive as the film kept going.
“ It also features the equally stunning Mila Kunis as the aptly named 'Jupiter Jones', who is the genetically reincarnated version of the mother of 'Balem Abrasax', an immensely wealthy and powerful galactic royal who happens to own Earth.
“ Pretty rotten in my perspective due to confusing story line.
“ Extremely entertaining.
“ From the strikingly grand space vistas to the awesomely conceived spaceships and otherworldly creatures, the film's visual design – with 100% photo realistic CGI – is intriguing, meticulous and overall spectacular.
“ Nearly fell asleep .
“ One of the worst movies i have ever seen .
“ Our heroine is passed from one baddie to the next and generates confusion.
“ Finally, if you want to watch an amazing and very entertaining sci- fi movie with incredible action scenes, go and see it for yourself...
“ Michael Giacchino's music fits each scene very nicely whether it is a fast paced chase scene, or a quiet and thoughtful scene.
“This movie was LOADED with unnecessary exposition, pointless character developtment, and some of the weirdest actings ever.
“Rating System: 10 = Classic, 9 = Great, 8 = Worth watching again, 7 = Good but one viewing is enough, 6 = Thoroughly average, 5 = Barely average, 4 = Below average, 3 = Well below average, 2 = Complete waste of time, 1 = Crime against humanity.
“ The characters are totally uninteresting.
“ The story is confusing and just overall stupid and the final act is just plain bad.
“ These are the only scenes where the movie earns momentum, the directors finding breathtaking ways to join us along with these large scale spectacles.
“ Simply excluding the visuals I wouldn't give more than 3..The concept is good, the story sucks, the characters are shallow and undeveloped, the world is stunning perhaps the best so far in all sci-fi movies and thats what it makes the movie watchable.
“ Action scenes we're really enjoyable for me to watch.
“ Her meagre and pointless existence is interrupted by the skilled Caine Wise a half human – half wolf genetic hybrid.
“ Pacing is all over the place, the actual story feels rushed, indicating that the film would have worked better at least twenty minutes longer as a film or as a mini-series, but because the experience is so emotionally and dramatically empty it feels dull too.
“A simple plot is dressed up with stunning CGI set pieces that keep the pace bounding along at a most enjoyable rate.
“ Non-ending long CGI scenes (a bit like The Matrix Revolutions) which made it pretty boring, and not to mention the incredible load of explosions and fast action, you can't even tell what the hell is going on and who's fighting who.
“ The characters were truly great and the attention to detail was mind blowing.
“ one of those movies that's so ridiculous that it's actually enjoyable.
“If I hadn't gone with a friend I'd have walked out.
“ Negatives aside, however, and it was still a fairly enjoyable film with some potential.
“As a bonus the Musical Soundtrack is Fun and Quite Effective and Entertaining.
“ the story line was barely there and what little there was was so utterly confusing.
“ pretty entertaining .
“ They were very hard to focus on, especially the fight scenes and the technology made the movie disjointed.
“ And Eddie Redmayne's overacting makes this movie nearly unwatchable.
“ There were also some intriguing scientific ideas that I thought would be explored and that could lead to some interesting conclusions.
“ But I found the story somewhere a bit predictable and now and than it has its flaws.
“ I found the film to be very enjoyable for the most part.
“ Don't waste your time.
“ Visually stunning at times, but the drawn out action sequences seem gratuitous.
“ In general, I found the plot and its plot points predictable.
“ love, revenge, faith of the Earth, crumbs from Dune and a strange atmosphere, bizarre costumes and , not only for few scenes, waste of time.
“ The dialogue was cliché, almost as if we were sitting through a bad teen TV movie.
“ Artificial lighting , specific bandwidth of sound spectrum ranging from subtle background tunes to significant explosion noises , the art team and Designers did a splendid job putting every penny of the production cost to useOn a whole I can say that Jupiter Ascending is a guilty pleasure movie with 2 hours of Brilliantly choreographed actions probably making all that's worth of the money you would spend in buying tickets for this movie with little no story to back it up.
“Incomprehensible plotting, characters and situations girded by repetitive action sequences that seemed to have no end.
“ There are fewer characters than a slow movie would have and the story is rushed to fit in a 127 minute film!!
“ Albeit the movie was fairly predictable at no time did I feel that I had guessed the outcome of all the different plots and/or situations.
“ If one wants to praise directors, this would solely be about the universe they created, which suggests not much new, but it is very spectacular with brilliant mixture of colors and stunning production design.
“It is not innovative or even new, but it was as I said, entertaining.
“ Completely disappointing When I watched the trailer for the first time, more than a year ago, I expected a movie with a more complex story line, but the story and how it goes through the events in the movie is too simple and boring: Jupiter is just a clone of a queen, who harvest people in other planets to extract an elixir that keeps her and those who can afford young so she can live forever.
“ This movie is incredibly entertaining...
“ Everything here is so predictable - you know when the main characters make stupid decisions, when they are saved, when they fall in trouble and the way it ends.
“ Enjoyed it...
“I enjoyed it terrifically.
“ It was enjoyable.
“ And despite all the negatives in it, the score is kind of really good, Kunis and Tatum, of whom I am a big fan, are charismatic and decent enough to keep bore levels at an acceptable low value Sean Bean is as always illuminating on screen and some, and I repeat some, of the visuals are really eye-pleasing.
“Waste of money I think.
“ But go see it if you want explosions and sexy men (plus a couple sexy women) and CGI beauty and an entertaining ride.
“ The characters are totally one dimensional and the script is appalling with every cliché in the book.
“ Unbelievable quality of CGI, mind blowing action sequences, very balanced paste and incredible atmosphere.
“ The characters are boring and uninteresting and it doesn't help that the movie doesn't really seem to be trying to make it interesting.
“ So, let's next say that we want to have a fun amusement park ride with this film, well not to be redundant, but Tatum's shoe-flying sequences can only be thrilling to someone under the age of 6 years old.
“ If you are looking for some action packed fun, it's your ticket!
“Seriously, there are better ways to waste two hours of time.
“The film is pretty enjoyable and is paced and edited pretty well.
“ I enjoyed it.
“ Film cutting is sometimes too fast and action scenes are mainly way too long.
“ Neither of them are particularly interesting or entertaining, and the romance between them is forced in to appease an audience that no longer exists.
“ I do believe the movie is worth watching though, at least because of the interesting scenery and visuals.
“ Otherwise, save your money and time for something more intriguing.
“There was too much fighting but nonetheless it was enjoyable.
“ Enjoyable space romp .
“ Confusing goals of characters 6.
“ It's a bad movie with beautiful visuals, boring action scenes and good actors being weird.
“-All-in-all Jupiter Ascending was not all that good, but had some enjoyable things like the acting or space fights.
“ And of course strip it right down to reveal Buster Crabbe's non-pretentious Flash Gordon.
“ Most of the characters themselves are duller than watching paint dry and do some pretty nonsensical things.
“ What a friggin' waste of human time.
“ I highly recommend it!
“Ah, this was just a waste of time, don't go see it in the theaters, don't rent it don't watch it, it is really bad and it hurts really bad to say that being a real fan of almost all of the filmmakers and actors involved.
“ I would love there to be sequels to this film, they have an intriguing mash up on sci-fi movie elements wrapped into one.
“ Plot: Immigrant Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) has had a pretty uneventful, less-than pleasant life, always wanting more than just cleaning the homes of the wealthy.
“ They delivered their cliché lines in unremarkable fashion.
“ The first 30 minutes of the movie was already boring.
“ The story is all over the place and is needlessly complex leading to a lot of the story being so boring and rushed that you'll forget about most of it 5 minutes after watching it.
“ The characters were flat and one-dimensional; I guess that's just how Channing Tatum is as per usual, so no change there, but Mila Kunis looks bored and almost embarrassed that she's a part of this movie.
“ Decent movie, Worth watching .
“ Fun movie, great cgi, visually stunning.
“ They are fast paced, agile and luminous with firefights involving anti gravitational moves, a lot of lights, cool futuristic techs and gears.
“"Jupiter Ascending"'s visuals, however, are stunning.
“ The romance was also very rushed and felt very dry and forced.
“ Fight scenes too long, over exaggerated explosions, some good moments but mostly corny/cliché with bad puns and dry humor.
“ Maybe it is not as creepily thought provoking as the Matrix or V, but all in all, I thought it was a perfectly enjoyable action movie with a beautiful universe I'd like to explore further.
“Cloud Atlas (2012) was a brave project with a plot, soundtrack and visuals neatly described by one word: compelling.
“ Confusing Garbage .
“Two adjectives that sadly fits the description of this movie is; dull and boring.
“ The special effects are out of this world good, the film is beautifully shot and the production design has much colour, atmosphere and astonishing realism, successfully at first allowing the viewer to be immersed in and captivated by the world the characters inhabit.
“ Tatum isn't a bad actor, he's just remains stony faced and kinda bland, most of the time, here.
“ Predictable and cringe-worthy, one can only describe it as the Nickelback of film.
“Save your money, and don't even bother renting this.
“ I', guessing that the people behind this movie are the villains in the universe making us waste our time...
“ Stupid, aimless, empty, dreadful and DERIVATIVE non-spectacle .
“Jupiter Ascending is a letdown, a film with some visual wonder to fixate upon as it wanders its parallel universes in search of a logical and compelling story to match its grandiose thinking.
“ I am a lover of science fiction movies, especially ones that can stand alone and conjure up thrilling thoughts and make me want to pop in the DVD at a later date.
“ Waste of my time and money, and as a compassionate man i feel obliged to spare you from the time watching this film.
“ uninteresting, boring.
“ Intense, Action, Drama, You Name It, Jupiter Definitely Ascends.
“ It is sincerely one of the worst movie I've ever seen.
“ The first big action is rendered pointless because the aliens that are trying to kill Jupiter fix the city.
“ When out of patience: put it on an uninspiring serving-plate and top it of with Gerard Butler.
“The ONLY redeeming factor in Prometheus, is its stunning visuals.
“ Characters explain quite a lot, in the second act at least, about how the universe really works and yet, ultimately, it all comes down to elements familiar as we've seen in many other space operas: rigged marriages, fiendish power plays, blue-blood royalty, dogged male determinism, and some enjoyable hijinks.
“ It's more enjoyable than the Star Wars prequels and even The Matrix.
“I believe that when you write science fiction (as I do), you need to come at the material with fresh eyes, be inventive, try not to use clichés or be repetitious, and most of all try to be unpredictable.
“This is a creative and entertaining jaunt into an alternate reality.
“ The viewer gets bored by the visible intention to create a universe for a franchise by over-explaining the most uninteresting crap, tried to get relieved from this tension desert by foreseeable love and action jerk.
“ Visually stunning space opera.
“ I did feel, however, that his role was rather generic, and repetitive.
“ Exciting, funny, curious.
“ A REAL Ghost in a (an empty...
“While I understood the overall concept of the movie, it was downright confusing.
“Well, I guess I can go on forever with my bad impressions, but I will finish this with an advice: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT waste your money on this pathetic, boring piece of s**t!
“ And it has a fairly exciting story to boot.
“, etc.Boy is this movie exciting.
“The acting was awful and the story was trite and predictable AND convoluted.
“ They can sell a movie with a shallow story,and stunning visuals.
“ The result is that film continues to render itself pointless as we move from one confrontation to the next.
“ Many things happen and though the film is quite long, it feels crammed and rushed sometimes.
“ One last thing I would recommend though is to forget seeing this at the cinema, with so much happening on the screens at once the big screens made it so hard to follow, wait for the DVD and see it at home in the comfort of your home where you can see everything.
“ I really was about to fall asleep, I didn't want to finish this movie because it was so boring and it made no sense, and the action was terrible.
“ Jupiter Ascending was marketed as an interplanetary adventure, but turned out to actually be a bureaucratic conflict over land
The visuals are stunning and many of the action scenes are spectacular and very fun to watch.
“ The action sequences are boring because they are so dimly-lit and fast-moving that it is impossible to tell what is happening.
“ The visual's are stunning and it's the only real reason the movie gets a 5.
“ But nonetheless, I like this movie, it was fresh and it was entertaining.
“ Special effects are not special here at all, they are uninspiring.
“ As Channing Tatum is forced to play straight faced and charmless and Eddie Redmayne consistently mumbles in monotone whispers, they're both forced to pick up the slack for Mila Kunis' passive and needy damsel in distress.
“ Otherwise it was a good movie a one time watch it's worth watching i would recommend it.
“Jupiter Ascending tells a story so predictable, i wouldn't even care following the plot.
“ The story was so pedestrian to the point that many scenes were utterly predictable, and their outcome didn't seem to make any difference.
“ Confusing and not well acted .
“ It had a confusing plot, with Mila Kunis who was a space queen and owned the Earth and they knew she was the queen because she controlled bees it was confusing.
“ The acting is great and it is truly a non-stop action packed sci-fi masterpiece!
“ It's awful to the point of unwatchable.
“ Storyline is so simple and predictable.
“ The whole movie is a full-time CG, what kind of plot is worse than WOW's propaganda film.
“ Though the film is confusing to begin one (and reason for losing 1 rating) when you get into it, it's a very good film.
“ Eddie Redmayne delivers a truly halfassed and mediocre performance- setting his space villain up to be a boring antagonist.
“ Mila kunis plays jupiter and I found her to be a really boring character.
“You should still watch it sometime because it is entertaining, just don't expect to want to watch it again any time soon.
“ Even so, for all of Jupiter Ascending's plotting problems, it's easy to imagine a television series - allowed to unfold at a slower pace - realising the promise hidden within so many moments of the film.
“The sibling villains are just as boring as the movie's plot device.
“That being said, I walked out of the theater desperately wanting the 20-part novelization which would allow me to further explore this amazing world that was created.
“You could tell by the performances by Mila, Channing, and several other cast members that they were just as bored making this film as I was watching it.
“ There were a few instances in the movie that left some details underdeveloped, but overall this was an enjoyable film and a fun trip to the movies!
“ Not worth watching, unoriginal and boring .
“ Its a nice (almost exciting) collection of quotes from the top sci-fi movies of the 90s and all time, it even has scenes that looked like they were borrowed 'on purpose' to look exactly like certain intense legendary moments.
“ All sorts of characters in this waste of time.
“ Eager to impress audiences with action sequences, which the outcome of each fight scene is 100% predictable.
“In terms of views and images, "Jupiter Ascending" is a spectacle with an impressive space footage, sometimes rousing action sequences and titillating extraterrestrial fantasies.
“and the narrative, in addition to being ludicrously over-the-top, jumps around in a seemingly pointless and distracting manner.
“ It is entertaining enough to keep you captivated, you will definitely laugh and I have no doubt you will love the worlds and the idea of how they exist, so I'm not saying skip this film altogether I think more I want you to be prepared to be disappointed, so that when you do see it, your expectations will be so low that you will love what you see instead and wonder why I decided to ingest downers before heading to my seat.
“ It's a horrible waste of time.
“ But the same script is used too many times which leads to boredom.
“ Unfortunately that is the only positive I can think of in what is otherwise a generic and boring story.
“ Jupiter Ascending is a visually stunning movie, for one, with many great decors.
“ And this makes the action, albeit well choreographed, very boring.
“ The action sequences are intense and exciting, the costumes and makeup effects are top-notch, and Michael Giancchino's gorgeous soundtrack is almost as good as that of Cloud Atlas.
“ They get in another really drawn-out fight.
“ Just save yourself the waste of time and the straining to hear Eddie Redmayne speak.
“ How do you make sense8, with such a fun, twisting plot and complicated, clever characters, and then wring out this prettily wrapped package of shitty writing, bland characters, uninteresting plot, unmotivated romance and oh-no-you-didn't one liners?
“ Each singular planet or world was so stunning and precisely crafted, that one could almost feel themselves in it.
“ We rarely see these kinds of movies because these are visually boring stories, even if the characters are interesting and the philosophical ideas are groundbreaking.
“ The flashy chase between the buildings is intense, exciting and masterfully portrayed.
“ After the trite opening sequence in which we get a parent-gives-title-character-name-their-late-spouse suggested cliche, Jupiter doesn't really seem to have any real connection to the events happening around except insofar as the narrative insists on telling us.
“ After charming the knickers off me with Cloud Atlas the Wachowski Brothers/Sisters/Cousins/Uncles/Aunts fall hard on their faces with this turgid, confusing mess.
“ There was enough multiple ideas to make a whole entire alternative universe and with good casting and character development it could be fun scary touching but they shoved it all ina film that is too long in the end.
“ The special effects make believable some very interesting and exciting details, such as the multitude of gadgets and weapons we're witness to.
“ This Sci-fi love story is action packed and original.
“ Not a Cinematic Revolution, but Exciting Nonetheless.
“ There's thousands of other things I could've done with that precious time but I wanted to turn my mind off and watch a movie that would hopefully entertain my boredom.
“ A thrilling visual presentation utterly bereft of narrative eloquence, JUPITER ASCENDING is another huge cinematic mishap, best appreciated by audience that are only after feeding the eyes.
“ Pleasantly surprised - entertaining and engrossing sci-fi .
“ It all makes the film entertaining to watch.
“There are problems with the pacing and the love story is appallingly contrived.
“From the miscasting of Mila Kunis, the almost laughably made up Channing Tatum, through to Eddie Redmayne's horrendous whispering villain, every character in the Wachowski's journey gets lost in a plot that has everything from human harvesting, alien doctors, impromptu weddings and scenes of gratuitous toilet cleaning yet nothing that makes us care, especially when there is so much confusion amongst all the backstory, side plots and Sci-Fi mumbo-jumbo.
“ It's action packed, good story line.
“ Characters are ultimate boring and cliché.
“ And when you understand it, you also understand that it's action scene in the middle of an empty city.
“ It starts off coherent, but soon a number of confusing and unexplained elements make an entrance, making you wonder just what is going on.
“ It is big bombastic fun and I enjoyed it.
“ I just wanted to turn it off.
“ After anticipating it since last year, I was final able to see Jupiter Ascending - I had lowered my expectations after the flood of negative reviews, and so I was pleasantly surprised to find the film highly enjoyable and engaging.
“ It's very hard to follow them.
“ The only weakness I found in all of this film, is the little predictable side of the story, and the little lack of originality and rigour in the soundtrack.
“ Some of the actions scenes were fun, but some were also repetitive and unintentionally funny (Channing Tatum's gravity boots).
“ A stunning visual feast with a captivating story .
“ The direction becomes boring in the middle of so many digital Gothic settings and weird creatures.
“ Utterly bad, unwatchable crap .
“The film is visually stunning.
“ Any media that women love that is just entertaining, will be instantly put down in our culture.
“ But still entertaining - if you like movies such as The Fifth Element, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Guardians of the Galaxy, John Carter, Green Lantern, Immortal etc. comes to mind.
“ The movie was like a collection of really expensive CGI scenes with no story, not real motive, not nothing.
“ How come the Wachowskis create something as intriguing and character driven as Sense8, and then also come up with Jupiter Ascending?
“ It was exciting, imaginative and beautiful.
“The plot though, was shallow and uninteresting and even though it had good actors, the acting left a lot to be desired (although one must ask how good can the acting be, when working on such a bad movie).
“ Just saw it here is my 200 word review ( i really enjoyed it, however todays movies just need to SLOW IT DOWN A MINUTE....
“ Jupiter Ascending is visually stunning and the action is acceptable for a sci-fi movie of nearly a 180 million budget.
“ Sorry if the ending was moving, exciting and witty instead of plodding, overblown and derivative.
“ Funny, action-packed, Metphysics within it's narrative, brilliant aesthetics and orchestra, repetitive plot with holes.
“ Mila Kunis felt completely miscast and had no chemistry with Channing Tatum, who was playing the same boring dumb hero he always does.
“ I still think it's worth watching, and one of the few films out right now that benefits from being seen in a theatre rather than at home.
“ The film certainly has an intriguing title.
“Special Effects: Visual Effect (9): Incredibly stunning!!
“ Some of the space shots were absolutely breathtaking.
“ Flat and cliché characters.
“ I can't find a whole lot to recommend the picture other than it's dynamic, come right at you action sequences, but even then, some of them are stretched way too long, like when the Whitley Streiber-looking aliens called 'Keepers' engaged in an interminable chase scene with partial wolf-man Caine Wise (Channing Tatum).
“The characters are just plain boring, I couldn't detect much chemistry between the two main protagonists, which is a bad thing considering they supposedly loved each other.
“ Speed Racer (2008) was visually intriguing but its story was muddled and confusing; I personally think that while Cloud Atlas (2012) was not as groundbreaking as The Matrix, I still thought it was a fantastic film with a great and thought-provoking story, amazing special effects, and some truly Oscar-worthy performances.
“What a waste of time and money!
“etc etc.3) Long and boring fight scenes.
“ The film has breathtaking visuals, some of the best I've ever seen actually.
“The action scenes are long, predictable and boring.
“ The truth of the future is probably either far more odd or far more mundane than we'd imagine.
“ By the end I was painfully bored.
“ It was romantic, filled with spectacular fighting/battle scenes, astonishing special effects and a very compelling and original storyline.
“ Nope iam sorry but this fantasy crap is just mindless, soulless waste of a lot of money and even worse waste of audiences time.
“ This reincarnation turns out to be a poor Russian girl named Jupiter Jones, living Chicago as a housecleaner who is bored and unhappy with her backstory.
“ The dialogue and jokes were unbearable.
“ meh but still entertaining .
“ With no story (or at least a story that is worth watching and actually making sense) no actual performances, no story line and no interest, the movie is really not worth watching.
“ The Wachowskis really blew me away with the scale of this universe they've created with highly imaginative worlds, technology and action sequences which are all very thrilling.
“ Again she's too dumb to be compelling as the heroine.
“ I enjoyed it about as much as I enjoyed Blade Runner and The Fifth Element.
“ The film was relentlessly imaginative and the world it established was fascinating and original, far more so than the sci-fi/fantasy universes set up in any of the Marvel or comic book movies of recent years.
“ That's the question the Wachowski's should have answered, why was this story special enough to make a movie about--The end result is boring dialog, mixed with ridiculous over- choreographed fight scenes, and a sad dependence on C.
“ Barely entertaining, definitely not the amazing movie I was expecting .
“)It's such a waste of money, time and talent (the CGI artists are talents).
“But this is no transformers, nor third matrix film, its a solid enjoyable film, with good action, relateable characters and themes, hateable villains and a lot of really enjoyable visual spectacle.
“ dumb, shallow and boring.
“ The script is just a series of bang crashes, and scenes of jeopardy for our two leads and how are they going to get out of them - yawn, yawn!
“It gets a 6 for being fairly entertaining and awesome special effects and the raw potential.
“ This film has immense repeat value because its simple and looks good while being exciting.
“ Movies like that are a waste of time.
“ But a visually stunning one, with beautiful actors and amazing special effects.
“ The special effects were superb and the action scenes were breathtaking, there is this chase scene in the first half hour that has Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis flying through downtown Chicago with all sorts of destruction that melted my face off and that's gotta be my favorite thing about this movie.
“ It was predictable and bland.
“ The movie had a good cast (despite those ears on Cain) including our now Oscar winning villain (a very intense Eddy Redmayne) and was quite self aware with some good one liners not taking themselves too seriously.
“visually this is one of the better movies I have ever seen, the effects were absolutely stunning, the concept artists also deserve praise as the aesthetics of the ships/worlds/weapons/characters was amazing and was a pleasure to watch, the action scenes were really fun to experience and genuinely left smile on my face.
“ If you are searching for a film with some depth and an engaging story, then by all means move on and find another more interesting movie.
“ Its extremely boring, the plot doesn't make sense and the actor walk around with an facial expression saying: what I'm doing in this mess?
“ i bet the wachowskis had to trim their script, i would have loved to have seen the worlds and relationships more developed, but still it was a fun and thrilling experience in imax, 3d conversion again was not necessary, go see it, without prejudice or preconceptions, and you will have a great time
“ A Perfectly Enjoyable Adventure and a Visual Feats .
“ Empty dialogs.
“ Jupiter Ascending is an entertaining movie.
“ While it is a bit slow in some parts, it's got enough action to make up for it.
“ While the suggestions that our race's origins are extraterrestrial can't be proved, it does make for some pretty intriguing conjecture.
“ But just as Transformers movies leave me bored to tears, so I was ultimately disappointed with this one.
“ Believe it or not, the movie does have some stunning scenes in there...
“They over did the visuals and the story is so confusing and terrible and that mixed in with semi-good visuals makes for a boring and very terrible experience at the movies.
“ I like movies that I can't expect whats happening because most movies are pretty predictable.
“ Some of the visuals were okay, but became very repetitive.
“But, the visual effects were completely and utterly stunning.
“ It doesn't make a lot of sense, its confusing, and because of that a lot of people find it hilarious.
“ It is disorganized which makes every fight scene which supposed to be exciting pointless.
“ the green screen whizzing about was tedious and uninvolving and made you long for the stripped down intensity of the terminator.
“On the upside, the film is visually stunning, and they certainly used 3D technology to their advantage, not to mention that Tatum's extended shirtless scene is, indeed, very entertaining while I don't think I have ever seen Mila Kunis look so beautiful.
“ Overall, this new version of Star Wars space universe is still an enjoying formulaic blockbuster with its intense actions and eye popping visual effects even if the directors themselves ended up confused and misfiring ambitious at the wrong directions.
“ But if what one sees here is the distorted, rippling surface of a universe, it is still a personable, engaging and of course extraordinarily gorgeous universe.
“ JUPITER ASCENDING falls somewhere between those two definitions; it's a sprawling would-be science fiction epic chock-full of trite dialogue and clichéd characters who seem to think they're in STAR WARS or something.
“ Music is good and climax is predictable and doesn't excites.
“ Not a classic of the genre but very entertaining - although I can understand some people getting upset at not being able to follow the somewhat demanding, fast paced, multi-level story, whispered dialogue, and unconventional narrative.
“ Acting - Mundane.
“ I've watched this a few times already and I enjoyed it!
“ It's frustrating because this movie could have been more if not for some questionable acting, awful dialogue and confusing story.
“ Mila Kunis was very believable and enjoyable in the character and...
“ Just when you think the movie would end, it drones on and on about another "twist.
“ mediocre SF but stunning effects .
“ The chase, action & destruction set pieces are eye-popping & exciting in 3D.
“Still, this movie is vastly entertaining.
“ "I understand they feel no pain", one says as they walk through the empty streets of a highly advanced city.
“ What was supposed to be an exciting sci-fi thrill ride ended up suffering from horrible miscasting, laughable script, and lack of originality.
“ In the story's efforts to draw out suspense, it goes through several peaks where the main heroine is thrown into peril and has to either fight or be rescued; the repetition of it can be tiresome.
“ And a very well made and hugely entertaining mash-up at that.
“ It held my interest for nearly ten minutes but I was bored out of my mind for the remaining 117 tedious minutes of colours, noise and nonsense.
“ The film is furthermore fast paced and never leaves us watching the hands upon our watch.
“ In the end, it is still a watchable movie with some entertaining set pieces and great visuals.
“ Underrated entertaining (sci-)fi movie .
“Overall pretty entertaining.
“ But looking at the whole thing, it's definitely entertaining, I found it engrossing enough to keep the DVD and I'll watch it again.
“ There's really not that much else to say about this crap fest, it's just crap and it's probably the worst movie of 2015.
“ In most cases, the Wachowskis have created films with interesting worlds and stories, breathtaking special effects and costume designs, beautiful music, intriguing (and sometimes admittedly terrible) acting performances, and an array of thought-provoking (and sometimes a bit pretentious) religious/social/economic/philosophical ideas.
“ In terms of getting casting spot-on, its a mixed bag, with them doing well in the cast of Tatum and Bean (don't mind how Bean is severely, and even unfairly, under-utilized); while faltering severely in the cases of Mila Kunis and Eddie Redmayne; and doing just about alright with the other hangers-on (to be fair though, the siblings of Redmayne, in terms of characterization at least, are much more fascinating creatures since their motivations are very realistically ambiguous, in spite of veering to being realistically 2nd and 3rd sibling-scale opportunistic).
“The action is immense with breathtaking scenes just as ridiculous and unbelievable as the best Avengers, Matrix and Batman can come up with.
“ There are some fairly interesting and enjoyable action sequences as well as some rare instances when the script doesn't feel like it was written by an adolescent comic book fanatic with ADHD who happened to watch The Fifth Element and Battlefield Earth a few dozen times.
“ fast paced, fun.
“A lot of the time watching this gives you the tiresome feeling of watching a video-game where you are not at the controls.
“ Although there could have been more character development, both Jupiter's and Caine's characters did change over the film and it was fascinating watching the nuances.
“ It came to a point though that it already felt a tad repetitive with Cain rescuing Jupiter over and over and over, you knew she was never really in any danger at all.
“ Pacing - since we need to go through the three capture/threaten/escape sequences, all with their own CGI battle, while also trying to navigate sub-plots and "breathtaking visuals" the weight of the plot/visuals just implode making the movie blend together into a mess.
“ The destruction scene of the harvesting factory at the end was a complete waste of time and was not well thought out.
“Overly long dialogue scenes, reminded me of most Facebook statuses; too much pointless information.
“ Enjoyable movie.
“ This film has NO story, It is so convoluted and filled egocentric directing.
“Want to see Eddy Redmayne talk in a weird whisper and generally look bored?
“ In the first act and then unfold on a long series of boring conversations with strange alien creatures and awful character design.
“Even the action/battle scenes become boring and repetitive very fast.
“ Predictability (4): Yes, the story is very predictable.
“ Entertaining space opera .
“ until it became a cliché .
“ Disciphering all this from the virtually whispered dialogue amongst the confusing and overly fast paced action sequences meant watching it twice.
“ Channing did an amazing job of legionnaire and While Mila's character is too casual about adapting to the universe she is always a lovely fun and absorbing actress!!
“ It is not a master piece, but definitely worth watching.
“ As usual the good point is that it kept a lot of people in a job but what a wasted opportunity to make something entertaining and worthy of its own longevity!
“ If this sounds tiresome, trust me it is not.
“This movie got so much going on that it became just boring.
“ Whisking the viewer from stunning set-piece scene to stunning scene to a cottage in the countryside...
“ Rather then becoming a fun road trip story, we get a lot of uninteresting dialogue that mostly consists of "the great things Jupiter will do for Earth" and "what humanity is".
“ It is beautifully shot and entertaining while keeping your attention on the mildly complex plot.
“ When Star Wars became such a colossal success, it opened the door for a flood of fantasy/science fiction that followed and a genre reborn to a public bored with outer space.
“Of course, shirtless Channing Tatum was just another plus, and Mila was completely stunning throughout the movie.
“ It was an entertaining trip to a beautiful fantasy.
“ The script was poor, the story was so confusing and absolutely full of very obvious plot holes it actually got annoying, if there was a lull moment in the film your mind began to wonder as did the fellow cinema goers as you heard fidgeting and readjusting going on all around during the slower moments.
“ The visuals are stunning and the world introduced is actually pretty cool...
“ A banal, pointless and chaotic attempt at telling a sci-fi fairytale, Jupiter Ascending is light years away from the starry heights it aims for.
“ Let's be honest, the basic plot line of The Matrix, the film franchise that the Wachowskis are renowned for, was pretty cliché too – the story of a Chosen One who comes out of nowhere and whose destiny is to save the world.
“ Too much complexity in the film's universe for such predictable plot points.
“ Very slow feeling at parts and rushed at others.
“ Every character is very bland and one- dimensional (with a possible exception for the relationship between Channing Tatum's and Sean Bean's characters).
“ Then there were other scenes that were just boring and pointless.
“ Positives: -the acting was (mostly) good -the plot (despite some cheesy elements) was very intriguing -the youngest siblings were cool charactersNow for the negatives: -I found the fight sequences Very long and boring, too much cgi, sometimes I struggled to see who was who.
“ The movie was entertaining, good paced, the action was good, the CGI was good, the bad guy was bad, the other bad guy was a little less bad (in a Disney movie he would have worn gloves), there were some not so annoying plot holes, there was some (mild) humor, there was chemistry between the two leads, it was predictable, and spoiler alert: Sean Bean does NOT die!!
“ The costumes are stunning (as are the actors).
“Conclusion: boring and cliché but entertaining at some points.
“ Despite the reviews, it was an intriguing premise, Mila Kunis is equal parts cool and hot, and some IMDb reviewers noted that that some movies are worth seeing just for the special effects.
“ It becomes a Sci-Fi film that becomes way too political despite some fairly entertaining action sequences at the beginning of the film.
“ The film seems to fail at everything, creating dull undeveloped characters and placing them in a ridiculous world that feels like it's trying to show how dumb science fiction can get.
“ Any action is announced well in advance, you know who is lying, who is going to die, what plot the twists are going to be, and the ending will involve daddy's telescope, and yes she will get off with the werewolf; by the way if I am wrong about the ending it's because I didn't watch it all the way through, I fell asleep three times because the dialogue bored me to sleep.
“ but if you're not, you're in for a confusing and frustrating time....
“ Visually stunning space stuff.
“ The storyline is confusing, strange, and for the first half and hour, I had no idea what was going on.
“ It tries to be Thor with its story of siblings squabbling over territory and power, but the villains are so ridiculous that they become boring – especially Eddie Redmayne who's villainous Belam whispers his dialogue most of the time and screams it the rest.
“ The two main heroes (played by Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis) are dull as dishwater.
“ Most people praise this movie for the stunning visuals, Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum (their bodies, not their act).
“ Its basically Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis mumbling their lines in monotone in front of a green screen, surrounding by far more talented British thespians.
“ Don't see this movie, it's a waste of your time.
“ Soundtrack was trying too hard to be Howard Shore at times and was quite bland and lacked intensity at key points.
“ Again, if you ever looked at any of my reviews I never give a rating this low, but the movie was just way to boring silly.
“Is this movie worth watching ?
“ Stupid concept, poor script, confusing timelines.
“I switched off my brain for a couple of hours and thoroughly enjoyed it so it's 7/10 for me.
“ My eyes were hooked onto the screen, excited for whatever zany yet thrilling scene or fight happened next.
“ Even though the Wachowski's followed up with two disappointing, disjointed and nihilistic sequels, the importance of their accomplishment led one to hope for great things from them in the 21st Century.
“ Good acting, astonishing visual spectacle, and a compelling plot.
“ The dialogue is farcically generic/cliché, the story is preposterous, the acting is...
“ The visuals are stunning.
“ And also as soon as the "Hunter" Caine (Tatum) shows up and sweeps Jupiter off her feet through (legitimately) breathtaking chases through Chicago or across star systems, you should know what you're in for: a big mashed potato mix of a science fiction space opera blockbuster.
“ The only expectation that was met was the breathtaking CGI.
“ Despite this movies problems ,I found it an incredibly fun universe to be immersed in .
“ If you are looking for the next Matrix, it looks like you'll have to wait for their next one because Jupiter Ascending is dull, boring, loud and obnoxious.
“ I'm confused by the confusion.
“ Exciting Movie .
“I could go on, but I think that is enough to convey the reason I found the movie to be particularly compelling.
“ I was bored.
“ I enjoyed it.
“ The criticism that the lead characters lack depth and the storyline becomes muddled is warranted but any criticism that the story is uninteresting comes from those with little imagination.
“ This movie may not have been like Mary Poppins "Practically perfect in every way", however it fits into a category that is most certainly enjoyable.
“ I think, this movie wins the grand prize on the most boring and uninteresting death of a bad guy.
“ Also, its way too long it just drags on and on.
“ It works in some, as long as the rest is enjoyable.
“ I really enjoyed it.
“ Unfortunately under this narrative DNA is only an epically bad written repetitive pattern of Jupiter being saved that you don't care what happens, because you know for sure, she will be saved again.
“ The acting was credible, and the visuals were absolutely stunning.
“ i prefer to commercials on TV then this film, its waste of time and if i watch this film more then 5 times in a row i could hang myself.
“ But visuals can not be everything in the film, because those colorful clouds and stunning planets get boring after an hour and you are left with the most illogical plot ever.
“ She's obviously hating her life, because there is nothing happening until some unearthly creatures try to assassinate her at the hospital.
“ It became a cliché.
“ And the writers even put a predictable love story between Kunis and Tatum which, I think, has nothing to do with the plot.
“ The movie is all about fights, as far as I watched, you don't learn anything from it and it's not an entertaining movie, is boring and repetitive.
“ In other words: save your money or watch something else.
“ Enjoyed it for the fun comic book style story, creative mix of genres, beautiful ships and scenery, and regency trope, and the adorable corny lines.
“ The film is full of spectacular visuals, cleverly crafted space battles and intense chase sequences.
“ Overall I gave this move 3/10 solely because of the CGI and the costume designs as it fails to deliver an original and intriguing story line.
“ Credit to the Wacowski's for creating yet another mind blowing world .
“ This is light years away from being a soulless, empty spectacle full of gratuitous VFX.
“ The stupidest movie I ever saw; A total waste of time.
“ One of the worst movies ever made.
“ The highbrows will keel over, but this is a much more genuine and entertaining movie than that one).
“ Due to these uninspired performances and the poor script, the film is a waste of time and literally space.
“ Shallow, boring, a complete waste of money.
“ All of the boring political talks and plot explanations just drag on and on and make absolutely no sense by the end.
“ The major glaring problem being that the plot is cliché with you telling the poor person sitting next you exactly what would happen in the next scene.
“ The fighting sequences were executed perfectly; each one thrilling in its own way.
“ Mila Kunis' Jupiter just felt stiff as a character and Channing Tatum's Caine was clearly intended to come off as stoic, but ended up just being kind of boring.
“ All anyone can do is offer informed and studied opinion and in my informed and studied opinion Jupiter Ascending is a gloriously fun and entertaining movie.
“ This movie is visually stunning although sometimes over acted with quite lame script.
“Predictable, dull and stereotypical.
“ From Channing Tatum's roller blades to one of the worst accents and voice mannerisms in recent memory - cheesy Star Wars-like aerial fight scenes that are so confusing only the geekiest of the geek would be able to make heads or tails out of who's who.
“ The nay-sayers and negative, vibe merchants really need to review their understanding of what is to get a movie made in the current climate and then re-assess their definition what a 'terrible' film is, because more terrible than Jupiter Ascending is an endless line of predictable, bland and safe movies.
“ Maybe they needed more time to perfect their mind blowing epic story and perhaps give us movie buffs another classic.
“ It's like a slow action movie.
“The visuals of Jupiter Ascending are particularly stunning, like the covers of Asimov or Arthur C Clarke novels of the 70's, the costumes are lavishly inspired, the sound is enveloping and the acting is top drawer, particularly Eddie Redmayne, who is just batsh*t crazy.
“ Truly uninspiring .
“ Certainly an enjoyable experience worth the watch in th big screen to be fully appreciated.
“ Different and worth watching .
“ I watched entire movie and fully enjoyed it.
“ The 4DX Super screen with 3D was quite expensive but, immersing and effective so it felt satisfying with such a visually stunning film.
“ The music is rousing, haunting and lusciously as well as thrillingly bombastically orchestrated.
“ Dumb, distracting plot, non-intriguing characters, and frankly you just want to throw something at your screen to get it to end.
“ While I am not the best movie critic, I feel that I should agree with everyone who says this movie is a waste of time.
“ The action is exciting.
“ This quickly make the action boring.
“ Review: This movie really got on my nerves after a while because the plot was a right mess and it was way too long.
“ Mila Kunis is stunning as usual.
“ This is the first Movie that I have ever walked out on.
“ Worth the watch in cinemas for the visuals.
“ Don't waste your money.
“ It's just kind of boring that begs for better direction.
“ exciting and beautiful .
“ Furthermore, I felt that every action scene was very repetitive with Caine Wise (Channing Tatum) always saving Jupiter at the last millisecond.
“ So after a space fighter fight in Chicago against Keepers (who look like cliché aliens) try to kill her, they unexpectedly get a car and drive off to his former CO, Stinger (Sean Bean, who doesn't die in this movie).
“ Decent entertaining SciFi Flick...
“ But it is also a deep, compelling rich imagined universe, with expansive ideas, and a wild entertaining action ride.
“ The plot was also very generic and flowed very badly due to the stilted predictable dialogue.
“ Each singular planet or world was so stunning and precisely crafted, that one could almost feel themselves in it.
“All in all, don't waste your money seeing this in theaters.
“ I'm taking one star off because I fast forwarded through some of the action at parts - "action" is tedious for me these days.
“ The movie is boring, lame, empty, and almost attempts to make no sense or logic at all.
“ Thank you all for the very visualizing and entertaining truth of spirituality.
“ I thought the opening backstory of her birth and life was a bit lengthy, however it did paint a drab picture so that you could understand her distaste for her circumstances.
“ While it's undeniably intriguing, the movie suffers by relying too much on verbal expositions and a nearly inert storyline that actually doesn't let the mythology grow.
“ For some ungodly reason his lips are offered towards the camera at every opportunity, in a way uncomfortably reminiscent of that drawn out moment your granny waits, taut and over-eager, for a proper kiss goodnight.
“ Fight scenes dragged on and on and on.
“ if you like si-fi with attractive actors and no story arc then this is the film for you.
“ Seriouly Wachowskis, I had high esteem for the Matrix, but since then your movies have been going downhill and lacking any originality (Cloud Atlas was another bore).
“ Who cares so much about the storyline here when you are able to absorb this sublime, crazy, captivating and visual stunning space adventure.
“ I'm unaware of half dog, half human relations within Subgenius lore, so the connection is fascinating.
“Some of the action was over-the-top and drawn out way too long.
“ The action in the film is thrilling, whether Caine (Channing Tatum) is on foot or in a spaceship being chased or fighting hand-to-hand the action is breathtaking and easy to follow.
“ The entire action is very formulaic, easily predictable, and overuses the damsel in distress trope.
“ This was easily one of the worst movies I have ever been to.
“ This film answers this and shows underneath the boringness of the mundane, you really can't beat home once you learn to appreciate it.
“ I enjoyed it, so...
“ The actors spoon fed you exposition that felt empty and just there to give you context.
“ It's not worth trying to piece together every plot point they throw into the movie because it will just lead to confusion and disappointment, and eventually frustration when you realize how much potential was wasted in creating this massive universe.
“ It's hard to imagine how the same directors and writers of the timeless Matrix movies and the bold and engaging endeavour that is Cloud Atlas can produce something as impotent and poor as Jupiter Ascending.
“ And after reading a few articles in my search results for "Jupiter Ascending confusing" it just does not seem worth any payoff it might have.
“ I'm willing to admit I was wrapped up in Jupiter Ascending and I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would.
“ The special effects were stunning,the storyline held water, most of the acting was good and Eddie Redmayne was a good villain(if a little camp).
“ With the beautiful filming, amazing costuming, and self-aware genre typical flamboyance, Jupiter Ascending provides an entertaining ride for fans of space operas.
“ The story is a bit predictable and times with too many clichés.
“ The world the Wachowskis have built is grand and epic, but too confusing to navigate properly.
“Unless you want to see just how bad it is, don't waste your time watching this movie.
“ The visual effects absolutely stunning.
“ Don't waste your time with it, just spin around until you see spots and it will be the same cinematic experience
“ The special effects are impressive, but the story was a little hard to follow.
“ The film looks absolutely beautiful but given the fact that the plot is thrown around everywhere i didn't have too much time to enjoy this, and the film is only 2 hours but it dragged on so much!
“ Still, if you're not going in to deride the movie because it's the cool thing to do, then you're going to miss a thoroughly enjoyable ride of pulpy old-school fun.
“ From that point, it just gets more confusing.
“ Enjoyable film, really.
“ If this is the very first sci-fi movie you've ever seen, you might be impressed with the cosmic splendor of it all, what with the astonishingly futuristic CGI and stunning cinematography.
“ This was one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.
“ Actually, there WAS no story.
“ If you enjoyed it or found it helpful go check out my other reviews.
“ In between action there was long, dull exposition.
“ I'd even say that if this film was more serious, it'd be dull.
“ Characters are incredible boring, the plot is awful.
“ The whole films feels like it is way over developed and produced, the action is kinda lame and forgettable and the story tries to be very rich but ends up being boring and messy.
“ Utterly bonkers but strangely enjoyable Sci-Fi .
“ Secondly i thought that the effects used were stunning.
“ Jupiter Ascending is one visually stunning movie and not at all disappointing, considering how many bad reviews it has received.
“The action scenes were some of the most non-engaging boring action scenes of any movie I have ever seen.
“ Pros: Visuals, they're really stunning in placesNovel idea that left room for sequels (if it hadn't bombed)Cons: The dialogue is surprisingly bad, like it was written by a child in placesBad acting, from most of the cast, exceptions are Tatum, Bean and Douglas Booth who were okay.
“ The backdrop is stunning, reminiscent of Asgard from the Thor movies, and there's a scene involving planetary bureaucracy that makes Jupiter bless the days she spent lined up at the DMV.
“ Entertaining, nonetheless.
“ If you enjoy imaginative, visually beautiful and rollicking space romps, this is one that will have you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
“ There is a lot to like about this movie, visually it is stunning and the universe that is built is rich in detail.
“ Sean Bean's character was another one I liked, but most of the others came of as bland, or extremely over the top caricatures **cough**eddieredmayne**cough**.
“ Personally I feel the wrong cast was chosen no-one in the film did anything for me, no one moved me or made me love them, in fact I'd go as far as saying they were all boring including Mila Kunis who I absolute adore usually.
“ 10 stars for a rollicking, crackling, fast-paced, fun, visually stunning sci-fi flick.
“ It is quite entertaining, nicely shot, and with a gripping story.
“ A waste of money and talent.
“ The suspense was okay but a little predictable.
“ At least this time it's entertaining and not pretentious drivel.
“ The visuals are simply mind blowing!
“ The spacecraft, the planets, the cityscapes, it's all breathtaking to watch.
“ the new Dune - I mean that in all its epic, grandiose, enjoyable folly glory .
“ First of all, the ideas in this movie are fantastic and interesting, however the actual movie sometimes verges on boring.
“ However, looking for example at the Chicago fight scene, the complex shape of the aircrafts, the way they fly and their constant 'shapeshifting' just make the action seem confusing and hard to keep up with.
“ Milna Kunis is stunning and she partners well with Channing Tatum, the film isn't a love story, it is about a girl from Earth who is destined for greatness and how she has to fight to claim her right.
“ I think this movie can best be understood as an entertaining, popcorn chomping, summer film, which it was actually slated to be last summer, before they decided to work more with the visuals.
“ If you hate movies, why waste your time being a movie critic?
“ Missed Potential of the Beautiful and Enjoyable Kind .
“ This movie is just utterly a waste of time.
“This time around, I've been not only disappointed with the mediocrity of the script but also with the noisy, predictable, over simplistic, troubled way of passing a message, devoid of legitimate spirituality.
“ I'll give him credit however; he looks as bored and as stupefied by the script as Kunis does.
“ Well that scenario pretty much describes the plot of Jupiter Ascending, an ambitious attempt by the Wachowski's at crafting their own space opera, which while entertaining in its visuals and action, fails to keep up with its own ambitions.
“ There's plenty of good special effects in this movie, but the story is beyond confusing.
“February 2015 and we have a candidate for worst movie of the year.
“ But other than being one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen, it also has so many epic moments where you laugh your ass of.
“ Visually this movie was absolutely stunning, and I would see it again in Imax 3D solely for that purpose.
“ Flawed but enjoyable.
“ But the fantastic visuals and few entertaining action sequences are not enough to get me to like this film.
“ And the other worlds they have created are visually stunning.
“ your expectations), your age and so on, you will either consider this an entertaining bit of fantasy fluff or, you will cringe at the predictability and resume your game of scrabble.
“ In turn, Titus Abrasax is excessively dull (Douglas Booth's performance is completely the opposite of his super-charged role in NOAH).
“ The action was wild all the way through like a visually stunning roller coaster ride.
“ Had there been 1-3 action scenes, it would have made the film a little more enjoyable.
“ It is visually absolutely stunning, and has such an overwhelmingly good flow of action that you know: the story is so basic, this is not what the movie is about.
“ Pros of the movie: The visual, its a very beautiful film and you get the feel of the world (earth) grow in to a small part in a galaxy powerplay with some stunning visuals scene.
“ It's a rushed mess that leaves it's characters behind and the story repetitive and unrewarding.
“ Impossible and pointless.
“ The world that was created was mind blowing.
“ May I add that the Spongebob movie was about one hundred times more entertaining than this film.
“ Maybe enjoyable for pre-teen boys.
“ Entertaining and good special effects .
“ Bad acting, horrible character designs, gaudy costumes, obtuse and overall pointless story.
“ The writing is choppy and messy, with characters feeling bland and weak, no more than one-dimensional in the case of the consistently overrated Channing Tatum.
“ I do love a good science fiction movie, but boy was I bored with this one.
“ JUPITER ASCENDING sees the Wachoski siblings continuing their descent into cinematic irrelevance following SPEED RACER and CLOUD ATLAS; the latter of those wasn't too awful, just bland, while SPEED RACER was astonishingly bad.
“"The plot was too convoluted and confusing": No, it wasn't.
“ The ending could not be worse, and caps off the movie with the same trite writing that plagues the rest of the movie.
“ A Visually Exciting Sci Fi Action Adventure .
“ First of all, yes, this movie is entertaining.
“ Fast action that becomes boring.
“ Found it fairly enjoyable but somewhat predictable.
“ The movie is a very long one too and on a big screen it can be a huge adrenaline rush just to watch it.
“ Even with those gorgeous special effects and some exciting action scenes, Jupiter Ascending fails to replicate the same glory of the last franchise these directors once made.
“ So confusing!
“ As was similar with their messy and pretentious Matrix sequels, writing/directing duo the Wachowski siblings bite off more narrative and deep significance than they can chew.
“ I liked it, though it was confusing in the beginning .
“ The action sequences are exciting.
“ Quick cut edits and spiralling cameras distort the action, make it confusing, and lose the narrative.
“ With other films by the Chicago-born duo, you have to patiently wait for slow buildups and then short payoffs.
“ The extensive world- (even galaxy-) building is highly impressive, but without a worthwhile population and purpose to fill it, this creation is left devastatingly empty.
“ The space-skating is neat the first couple times, then gets tiresome after.
“ Also the movie is so predictable that you can foresee the whole movie by watching the front picture, and i have grown to hate predictable movies, especially with overuse of CGI.
“ Confusing in its details?
“The characters are also kinda bland and cliché.
“ Maybe it's the lack of story telling that inhibit them to really show their acting quality.
“ Enjoyable Movie .
“ If two bright movie directors were to put chunks of "Star Wars", "Brazil," "Soylent Green," "Dune" and even a few "Star Trek" episodes into a blender and shake thoroughly, the resulting cocktail might be a basis for "Jupiter Ascending", fast-moving, rich in ideas and frequently explosive.
“ Completely incoherent plot line that will make you scratch your head, illogical directions, extremely cliché at every turn, strange pacing, characters are as one dimensional as they get, and extremely bad acting makes this movie awful beyond anything I have seen so far.
“ Trust me go watch paint dry is more fun and meaningful and fulfilling than this turd.
“ I thought Interstellar was boring.
“ Rich, fascinating and grossly underrated .
“ Long boring monologues (sometimes dressed up as dialog) served to advance the plot at the expense of pacing which slowed to a crawl.
“ The cgi is all on point and the action scenes are very fast moving and exciting to watch.
“ It was an engaging performance that carried the film, which overall wasn't that great.
“ Every line of dialogue is a painful cliché.
“ Years later Jupiter is stuck in a dull life as a cleaner along with her Russian family.
“Verdict: It is not the best Science Fiction Movie ever, but alone for the amazing designed Worlds it is worth watching this Movie on the big screen.
“The result is a movie so haphazard, rushed, and confusing that it is impossible to form a true affinity for any character in it, except perhaps the Earth itself.
“ Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is a Russian immigrant and janitor living in Chicago, who believes her life is going nowhere.
“ I was surprised to be blown away by the intense action, intricate story line, and interesting technology that just made me jealous.
“ This has got to be the worst movie I have seen so far this decade.
“ I enjoyed it....
“ What Wachowskis did here is making a visually stunning motion picture, a bunch of beautiful images and views on cosmos.
“ I enjoyed it.
“ This movie was so confusing.
“DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
“The visuals are stunning and stylistic and the action sequences were intense.
“ Visually Stunning, well worth seeing on the big screen .
“ It gets further dragged by uninteresting and underdeveloped characters you would rather laugh about and love if they weren't in the scene.
“ Visually stunning "B" Movie....
“ The fighting sequences were executed perfectly; each one thrilling in its own way.
“ Jupiter Ascending is a decent and enjoyable sci-fi movie with a unique premise.
“ We arrived at a would-be intense slow-motion shot during this same action sequence that was just too comical to handle and both sprinted down the steps and out the door.
“ this was top 2 all time worst movies i have ever seen.
“ Indeed it was seemingly a cliché story of how a mundane young caretaker was in fact the recurrence-reincarnation of the matriarch of a powerful dynasty, and how different powers tried to lure her, side with her or even kill her.
“ Lovely visuals costume design sets and some acting but i was really bored and felt like they wasted time, which was the whole point of the harvesting of humans just like scientology claims LOL.
“ There is little to absolutely no story involved in the making of this movie.
“ But when a film full of action sequences (which are actually boring, if you can imagine it), makes me wish I was watching one of the Twilight films instead, you something has gone terribly wrong.
“ Here all action seems so basic, slow and unspectacular.
“ The effects are pretty descent, some action scenes do keep you on the edge of your seat.
“ Very intriguing.
“ Still, aside from all this I sort of enjoyed it.
“Welcome to the world of the Wachowskis where a simple story has to be convoluted, contrived, and copious, just to illustrate even simpler metaphors in life.
“ A total waste of time and money .
“ It has some very lovely visuals and pictures in it and almost good piece of pulpy sci-fi plotting, but what it comes down to is, that it's also terribly boring mess, that doesn't seem to know what it wants to be: a twilight style romance, an adventure, socio-political commentary, Star Wars pastiche.
“ Full of cliché - a disaster.
“ There is no room to get immersed in this world because there is no story to relate to.
“ The action scenes are intense and the graphics were amazing.
“ But it is very entertaining and even better than many other sci-fi movies if you watch it without great expectations.
“ By the end of the film I did actually care for the character but if that had happened for me sooner, I would have found it more enjoyable.
“ I just did it was awful it nearly bored me to death!
“ The only distinctive directorial set piece is an eight minute aerial battle over the dawn skies of Chicago that allows John Toll's cinematography to truly breathe and deliver a genuinely thrilling moment in a film that otherwise has little time for Toll's photographic magic.
“ I sat through most of this dog and finally walked out after the nonsense overwhelmed me.
“So to elaborate my 2 minds:On one hand it's the most visually stunning film I've ever seen.
“if you want to watch it for its special effects by all means do it but wait until is free, on the TV and you can do something else during the boring bits (quite a lot of them I'm sorry to say) Like the special effects...
“ Even the action sequences are bland compared to the usual Wachowski standard, with the finale particularly lacklustre and unimaginative.
“ The story is so mellow, slow and boring it's incredible WB wanted to spend 175m$ on it.
“ It is so bland: a young girl who is a bored nobody suddenly gets a chance to go on a thrilling adventure, and even to be a genuine princess in a beautiful and strange place.
“ Hard to get into but ultimately entertaining.
“ This is hands down the worst movie I've ever seen.
“ Don't waste your time or money!
“ cliché mash-up .
“ It was all over the place confusing.
“ For one thing the CGI battles last way too long starting out with Cane rescuing Jupiter as Aliens try to shoot them down, and sometimes we cannot make out what the bad Aliens are saying.
“ But for all the SFX the story really lacks something - it just seemed predictable more akin to a super hero film as Channing Tattum character seems to do everything.
“ Everything was very predictable and the acting was below mediocre.
“ Worth watching.
“ She wakes up every day at a quarter to five to clean the houses of rich Americans and her life is so depressing she is willing to sell her ovaries to purchase a telescope and bring some joy to her boring existence.
“ Man-liner wearing Tatum flying around shirtless, wearing space age roller skates easily defeating pointless antagonists
..and about 40 minutes of it.
“" As with "John Carter" you have a finely crafted story, told by Hollywood experts fill with banal spaces between tiny bits of brilliance.
“ Aditionaly, some of the dialog is just some old cliché lines such as 'I always fall for the wrong guys' among others.
“ In my opinion ,the most enjoyable part of the movie is bureaucratic muddle and bribery scenes that taking place in outer space.
“ Every cliché possible is used in this mainstream Hollywood with no substance, only special effects who get boring as the (story?
“ Save your money and wait for DVD, stream, bluray whatever.
“ Great SFX, followed by cliché after cliché .
“ It was crystal clear that the sisters had worked hard on building a galaxy with a deep, sordid history far too long and far too out of control and crowded for comfort...
“ But I do wish that more people would have given Jupiter Ascending a chance, because while the Wachowskis made some mistakes with it, they still managed to deliver something unique and enjoyable.
“ This is most certainly one of the worst movies of the year and very deserving so.
