Jupiter Ascending
The Wachowski siblings are back with more science fiction, which has generally disappointed the critics. The lead character, Jupiter Jones, was predicted to be destined for great things. She dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when a genetically engineered ex-military hunter arrives on Earth to track her down does she begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along: her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. This film is releasing in 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX, this is the 2D version.

What the Critics say

James Berardinelli quote iconJupiter Ascending may have enough energy and razzle-dazzle to compensate for some of its deficiencies but there are a few too many of them to lift the film out of the decaying orbit into which it enters.

Tomatometer quote iconPleasing to the eye but narratively befuddled, Jupiter Ascending delivers another visually thrilling misfire from the Wachowskis.
