Jupiter Ascending Movie Review
I was a little intrigued by the big names of the directors. The special effects in the trailers looked good, and I decided to give this a go. At the start of the movie, the set up was reasonable. A girl from Chicago with big dreams cleaning toilets and hating her life.
The movie however, takes a sharp turn and shows you Jupiter, aliens, space, boom boom boom. This is visually pleasing but the story / characters does not really make it any better. Then Sean Bean character shows up and all I could think of is how is he going to be killed.
As the story progresses, you have the feeling that it is a remake of a sparkling vampire love story, but with aliens, flying boots, werewolves with wings, dragon men, in space.
Definitely a miss and a waste of SFX on this movie. This is 2 hours of my life I cannot get back.
Don't watch, even matinee... not worth the money and time.
