About the Movie
From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, Jupiter Ascending is a science fiction epic adventure that follows the downtrodden Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who's destined for greatness. When a genetically engineered ex-military hunter Caine (Channing Tatum) tracks her down, she starts to glimpse the fate waiting for her all along -- her genetic signature marking her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. Lana and Andy Wachowski take us on another visionary journey into the unknown. Also starring Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne and Douglas Booth, this sci-fi thrill-ride will expand your universe. The battle for our world begins with her.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Jupiter Ascending's early cleverness dries up quickly, especially when Kunis is offscreen, leaving us with just another incoherent sci-fi spectacle.
Rotten: This kind of pandering FX padding, unnurtured by humor or heart, is what shifts Jupiter Ascending from a shambles to a fiasco. The Wachowskis wind up where you never expected to find them creatively: on the ropes.
Rotten: The Wachowskis create a churning, swooping C.G.I. universe that's decorated to the corners of the frame without taste or imagination.
Rotten: Where were the Guardians of the Galaxy when we needed them? If only they had prevented the disastrous atrocity that is "Jupiter Ascending" from infiltrating Earth's movie theaters before it was too late!
To me, it was just plain boring even though some parts of the movie were very spectacular & philosophically challenging. I managed to see the entire movie, but several times during the viewing, I had the impulse to leave the theater. I think that the critics "got it right" this time.
No Longer Interested
I heard about this movie, story sounded interesting. Now that I have seen the trailer, I am no longer interested. After the horrible performance in Oz, why would anyone give Mila Kunis another starring role in a movie!
It may be bad to some people but to me it's a amazing ride through life,death,romance,fantasy, destiny and adventure.
