> One liner, somewhat richer, but only a decent entertainer.
A sci-fantasy directed by the Wachowskis of ‘The Matrix’ fame. Theirs lowest point ever as the filmmakers, but still not that bad flick. The movie lacked in many areas, and one of those is failing to have at least one stunning fight/war scene. I know it was only the beginning and there will be a sequel, maybe ends as a trilogy, but the story was very weak for an intro movie.
Looks like one-liner, precisely to say kind of similar to ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’. I mean in a thin idea, the whole story takes place. Something like a space expedition for a chosen one, hopping from a planet to planet, seeking answers and protection. The title character, Jupiter Jones, played by Mila Kunis, with the help of the Caine Wise (Channing Tatum) takes a risky venture when their lives were threatened. Finding who’s behind and other truth brings the end of the narration, which runs for just over a 2 hour.
Performances were okay, but kind of doubt their inclusion in the project. Mostly the cast was the younger ones, maybe except, Sean Bean. Many of them are only the recently emerged stars. So it was a big responsibility in a big budget movie and they did it. But the movie should have had at least one senior artist. The graphics were somewhat rich, and again the absence of the quality scenes and stunts lets the movie fall.
It appears that I am going to disagree with a fair number of people when I say that I quite liked this movie. Sure, if you expect some deep story with a lot of moral cleverness in it you are going to be disappointed. This is an interesting story but one that hangs together by a fairly fine thread.
To me it is a decent enough story that is propelled by a decent enough action and absolutely wonderful scenery. Yes, I agree with everyone saying that it is a bit of a B-story. It has many issues and barely hangs together at times.
However, if you try to ignore that for a while and just try to view it as a piece of, fairly fast paced, visual entertainment, well then it hits the spot quite well. It is frequently beautiful to watch. The action sequences are not bad and the story is, if nothing else, certainly not the usual thirteen to a dozen B-movie repeats. The acting is, well, also generally of B-movie quality but it is not downright bad and, once I got in the right mindset for the movie, it did not disturb me.
On the whole I quite liked this movie but I guess you have to be a bit of sci-fi fan, with an emphasize on visuals, to do so.
Not a classic of the genre but very entertaining
This film is basically a mash-up of Dune, John Carter and Doctor Who (and quite a few others). And a very well made and hugely entertaining mash-up at that. I enjoyed it. 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. I especially liked the neat blend of science fiction and fantasy and the nice fairy tale vibe. I loved those dragons. I enjoyed it about as much as I enjoyed Blade Runner and The Fifth Element. It certainly does not deserve some of the ridiculously negative reviews that I have seen. Which just goes to show it is all a question of personal taste I suppose.
Big, loud, colourful, popcorn-munching fun
A prologue tells us of Jupiter Jones’ birth: English astronomer father Maximilian, visiting Russia, falls in love and marries but is killed during a robbery: mother moves to the US, giving birth on the way. Jupiter grows up in Chicago in an extended family of immigrant Russians, doing menial cleaning work for a rich family where she seems to be friendly with the daughter. Then she is whisked away by a half wolf man on rocket skates after intergalactic bounty hunters arrive trying to kill her. It turns out she is a reborn incarnation of a wealthy cosmic matriarch who is in the position of retroactively disinheriting her three children, which goes down particularly badly with one of them, Balem, who is seeking to “harvest” Earth (ie. melt down the human population to create an elixir which keeps the cosmic super-rich alive for generations), hence the attempts to murder Jupiter before this can happen. Jupiter is thrust, unwittingly, into a new life of intrigue, manoeuvrings, and extreme danger.
Jupiter Ascending is a big budget, big story, science fiction extravaganza by the Wachowski siblings. It is full of action from the start, has some great story material, masses of eye candy from start to finish, decent 3D, good actors giving decent performances of pleasing characters, and a satisfactory resolution as well as the possibility of franchise continuation.
However, there’s always a “but”, isn’t there? The “but” with Jupiter Ascending is that there is so much crammed into it that you don’t always get what you need (or what you think you need) from a storytelling point of view. I’m quite happy not to be spoon fed – which is just as well, because you are left to figure out much of this film as it goes along – but there is quite a lot here where a bit more explanation would be welcome. Is Jupiter’s birth as a reincarnation of (un-named) Cosmic Mom a result of some sort of unmentioned cosmic intercession, or is it just some sort of accident/coincidence (in which case I suggest that those cosmic laws on inheritance need looking at)? Why is there only one pair of rocket skates? They seem terribly useful. How does the instant city rebuilding work? (OK, we don’t really need to know that). How did the siblings find out about Jupiter and why did it take them so long? How does it tie in with her birth circumstances? What was so significant about her birth circumstances that we needed to be shown what happened? How come the bounty hunters and rescue dog man both arrived at the same time? What was the relationship between Jupiter and rich friend who she cleans for and whose identity she assumed at the fertility clinic? What was up with Sean Bean’s daughter and why did it take so long between her single plot-relevant cough and the inadequate one-line payoff? There are plenty of other questions and, unfortunately, I found them taking precedence over the action.
The action pounds along relentlessly. The eye candy is wonderful. Channing Tatum is dogged in his protection of Mila Kunis’ Jupiter (har har). Eddie Redmayne is silkily menacing (a bit too quiet and indistinct) and terrific when he loses it. There are little skeleton creepy aliens, dragon men, and all sorts between (including some people under makeup who I only realised who they were when the cast list came up). It is big bombastic fun and I enjoyed it.
