Plot: A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive industry. Runtime: 127 mins Release Date: 06 Feb 2015
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant! For me, this is one of the best movies in history of cinema. If you did not see it already, then go to the cinema and watch it before you read further. I apologize for my not so polished English. It's not my first language, and I'm still learning it.I went to the cinema with almost no information about this movie. All I know was its a sci-fi. I had no clue who plays in it, or who directed it. First surprise came at the ticket booth. The ticket price was around 15% higher then any other movies I have seen*. This must be a real good movie... After twenty <more>
minutes I was already bored by the clichés. East European emigrant in USA with huge dreams, became a toilet cleaner, but soon she will be saved by a werewolf and she will be some kind of princess of the "world". What an original idea... As some other reviewers pointed out, the movie is full of scenes borrowed from other movies and video games, as far as I see. Scenes, music, sound effects. Everything. Stunning visual effects, but shallow story and almost non existent character development. For the first sight... After an hour I could not believe that I paid for this... This was the first movie I was trying to sleep in.At the end there was a single sentence that stuck in my head: time is the single most precious thing in the universe. Funny, a film seemingly completely waste of time talks about your precious time.With friends we talk about the movie for an hour. The conclusion: it is so pointless that this must be the point.Then, next day it hit me! It hit me so hard, first I had to sit down, then I was walking around in my room for a half hour. This movie is like a huge puzzle. It makes no sense until you find the corner pieces. I think I found one of those pieces. TIME, the single most precious thing in the universe. This movie is about Us, about how we live, about how we waste our precious time. Its about the clichés filling our life.The first thought of her at morning: "I hate my life!" Didn't you ever thought that? Her mother and aunt works dutifully, like robots. They are the modern slaves of our days. She is dreaming about a better life, about expensive clothes, while the rich girl can not decide which cloth she should wear when her rich boyfriend will "ask her" to merry him. We all know this will not happen, but she believes it. She wants to be a wife of a rich guy. A toilet cleaner emigrant with brand new iPhone? We are working to get money, to buy things we can not afford. Her uncle practically try to sell her body parts – eggs- and take most of the money, just because "this is capitalism". Spending money before you have it. Anyone? He spends on what? Big screen TV and video games. Things he can not afford, but he thinks it will change his life. He waste money so he can wast more time. ...these are just the first few minutes!It contains countless references to movies, video games, books, to different parts of popular culture, even religions. In every scene you can find parts of other movies, games, books. Just watch it and find your pieces.We are products, just as depicted in the movie. We are just numbers on some rich and powerful peoples spreadsheet. We are money machines. Do you think most movies are made for us? NO! Most movies are made for profit. Look at the movies of the last decade. They can sell a movie with a shallow story,and stunning visuals. They can sell it with an actor. They can sell it with just a name behind it. Most people praise this movie for the stunning visuals, Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum their bodies, not their act . Here is a movie with so deep meanings, that almost no one notices. Its not hidden. It pokes our eyes. But we can't see it. There were so many meaningless movies in the last decade, we can't see any difference. We don't even expect movies with any deeper meaning. Most of the movies and video games are just escapes from our life.I feel I need to say a few more words about the end of the movie to make it round. Did you noticed, she was smiling at the end, even while cleaning the toilet? She was not whining about her life any more. She wake up early, made coffee, and she was happier when she got that old brass telescope then when she become the absolute ruler of the Earth. She did change, but not the way you expected. She enjoys the little details of the life. Enjoys her work, even if its toilet cleaning, enjoys the morning coffee with her family, the noisy dinner. For me, it seems like, she understood that time is our single most precious thing in the universe. She enjoys every moment of her life : As I said, this movie es a brilliant piece of art. It is about our life. You just need to find a corner piece of the puzzle. I showed one piece for you! Wake up Neo! Now go, waste some more of your precious time, watch this movie again, and find your corner pieces, make your puzzle complete : I will do the same. I have to watch this again...Thank you for your precious time, I hope it worth reading : PS*: probably the higher ticket price was just a coincidence. But it made more impact. The pain of wasting my time was stronger.
Thought provoking rags to riches tale, putting into perspective the value of life (by kaptinparv-232-371487)
I saw this film in the Milton Keynes Cineworld 4DX Super screen with a 3D viewing...Wow factor set to out of this world.The story is wonderfully imagined, set on many worlds with awesome space scenes showing beautiful star ships and galactic scale.The Plot and character development is very familiar and really is a missed opportunity to add some intelligence to what is in many ways a thought provoking rags to riches tale, putting into perspective the value of life. Hopefully we'll get a follow up delving into that universe and it's limitless possibilities.Needless to say I was <more>
impressed with what in my view makes for great movies. This film has immense repeat value because its simple and looks good while being exciting.My friends and I opted to see the film in the new Cineworld 4DX super screen with 3D and it really did feel like we had gone on an American theme park ride. The seats moved in a very articulated manner complementing the motion of the screen and had jolts and impacts felt through the chair like getting hit in the back or landing on the floor. The weapons fire that missed could be felt whizzing past my head and the explosions enhanced by the bright flashes from the 4DX auditorium. When the action hits the river, splashes are felt with drops of water, I expected it, still surprising and effective. The fragrance element worked a treat too. Linking what you see with what you can smell like the flowers when a character walks through them or the smell of action - burning metal. 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. Jupiter Ascending was the best introduction to the 4DX technology. Clearly demonstrated a level of experience that is sure to become a major success with the right films. I was looking forward to this film last year and, it was worth the wait. The 4DX Super screen with 3D was quite expensive but, immersing and effective so it felt satisfying with such a visually stunning film.This film is a great date movie, fun for families, perfect for sci-fi junkies, thought provoking and good looking.I can only hope you have at much fun as we all did.
OK, here we go. I don't know why, probably because a bunch of pretentious folks at Sundance badmouthed it, but this film is going to be trendy to dislike. The movie didn't even come out before people were scoffing at it down their noses. I'm kind of a fan of original sci fi films, and the cast, so I was stoked to check it out. This movie was awesome. I can't even imagine the ridiculous amount of creative work that went into designing such a multi faceted world, complete with interesting technology, styles, creature designs, characters, the works. It was beautiful to look at, <more>
and anyone that's a part of the film world should know that not a single pixel, prop, or thread of clothing makes it to set without passing under the eyes of tons of creative minds, so believe me when I tell you more original creative thought went into this movie then you'll have the attention to notice. The conflict is topical, complicated but not hard to follow, has high stakes, and is grounded in the reality of a capitalistic gain. The characters are fun, some will feel very familiar to fans of sci fi/fantasy worlds, and some are very fresh. The performances are great and interesting to watch, the action is extremely well choreographed, the plot is easy to follow, and the film is long enough that we get a full sense of the immensity of the world they created. As it is, in an age where everything that kills the box office is either a remake or based on a book/comic/cartoon, I think it's really cool to see an original sci fi film stand on its own two legs and tell an epic story. I Loved it.
An ascetically gorgeous film, on an epic scale with a fairly strong story. (by Patrickreagan)
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. However overall i was very surprised and impressed by the movie, the protagonists managed to seem real and relatable, and even though the dynamic between Caine and Jupiter was somewhat rushed, they had a good on screen chemistry. The universe of this movie seemed well developed, believable, and gorgeous. The cities, worlds, and background extras, much of which were created by cutting <more>
edge special effects, were all incredibly eye catching. The action sequences were well designed, flowed well and added to the suspense of the movie. The antagonists of the movie stood out due to their excellent performances. Eddie Redmayne carried the movie with a chillingly strong performance. However other supporting characters also added to the overall feeling of the movie particularly Sean bean. Id like to recommend seeing this in theaters so you can fully understand the scope of this film's visual beauty. This movie walks the line between god awful and brilliantly epic, and despite its flaws it manages to barely pull off the latter
I love "Jupiter Ascending". I've seen it once and I'm going to go see it again.It had my heart pounding and my blood racing. On the Hershkowitz meter where 1 sucks and 10 is great, this movie is a creative, brilliant, imaginative and original nine.Others have commented on the stunning visual design of this movie. I urge you to go see it on the big screen. This is what the Wachowski siblings do best. The colors and imagery are unbelievably wonderful. The special effects are well rendered and definitely not cheesy. The sight of Channing Tatum skateboarding through air is <more>
fantastic. There's a great spaceship fight over the city of Chicago that had my heart racing, and ended with a giggle. Go see for yourself!The music is by Michael Giacchino. If you don't recognize that name, you should. He composed the soundtrack for Star Trek, Ratatouille and Up!, among others. He's a great composer. Lots of orchestra and chorus accompany this fantastic space opera movie.And space opera it is indeed. The Wachowski siblings are nothing if not visual and they pay stylistic homage to all of the best works in the space opera genre including but not limited to: The Foundation by Asimov The great central planet Trantor. Or was it Vogon Dune by Herbert The great house of Abrasax! Really ☺ GravityAlfonso Cuarón Floating around in space -The Lost fleet series by Jack Campbell Portals and Hyperspace Startide Rising by David Brin We are not alone Etc., etc.Boy is this movie exciting. It got my heart racing and my blood pounding. It also had funny moments and touching moments. I thought the scenes with Mila Kunis and her family were very effective and moving. The actors did a very credible job holding space on screen in the middle of this full on full-blown space opera action movie. And Sean Bean doesn't die☺Lots of Channing Tatum with his shirt off and Mila Kunis in skimpy outfits aren't hard to watch.The Wachowski siblings wrote the screenplay and it has gotten a lot of criticism. I think people don't understand it. In my mind, it's not much different from a Star Wars movie. It's a fairytale and an adventure story and it works. I love 3-D and I think it is used very well here. I love it when that fourth wall fades away and I'm flying through outer space. That's a very personal and subjective opinion. I know other people hate 3D. The movie has been released in both 2D and 3D. I'll probably see in in 2D when I see it again this weekend.The fight scenes probably go on for a bit longer than I like but I can say the same about most of the movies made today including mega-hits like Ironman and The Avengers.Jupiter Ascending is a heart stopping popcorn munching spectacular 9.Go see it!
I honestly cannot believe the negative reception this movie has received. This was original, creative, full of incredible action and some very colorful characters. Jupiter Jones is a house keeper of Russian descent, makes her living scrubbing other peoples toilets and hates her life. Little does she know that her entire life is about to get better. Millions of light years away the Matriarch of the Abrasax, a group of wealthy aliens who own many planets unknown to those on earth, has died and her three children are competing for the rights to own earth. The oldest of the three, Balem finds out <more>
that Jupiter is the next heir, puts a bounty on her head and wants her dead. A bounty hunter, Caine Wise comes to her rescue and the adventure is on through the galaxy. Say what you will about the Wachowski Siblings, but to me they are two very creative geniuses. This Sci-Fi epic was probably one of the best i've ever seen. The fight scenes were well done, the spaceship designs were fantastic, and i haven't even got to the giant flying Dinosaur/Saurian Minions yet. Oh yeah this movie has those too. If you are a fan of Sci Fi i have 4 little words for you. GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
Jupiter Ascending, quite literally, is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The visual effects and CGI were top notch; nothing looked unfinished. Everything from explosions and action scenes, to space ships and settings, this movie had all the "eye candy" one could want. The fighting sequences were executed perfectly; each one thrilling in its own way. Each singular planet or world was so stunning and precisely crafted, that one could almost feel themselves in it. The Wachowskis have made a truly gorgeous universe in their latest movie. Michael Giacchino's music <more>
fits each scene very nicely whether it is a fast paced chase scene, or a quiet and thoughtful scene. It has a mysterious and almost hollow beauty to it, which fits this movie perfectly.Alas, not everything in this movie is as good as the visuals. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis give surprisingly good performances for the most part but some of their acting is just off. The other principal actors give good performances as well but all the acting could have been taken a notch higher. Story and Plot is where this movie is weakest though. It has so much ambition and intricacy that it is to much to fit in a two hour long movie. Even though two hours is a good length, the plot just wants to keep on going and therefor the loose ends are never quite tied up. The plot is never really explained to its entirety and while one can figure out the general idea, it is hard to go deep into it. It has huge potential but rather than using it, it discards it. I give it credit for being fairly original though, and not a sequel, reboot, or based of a graphic novel or book. Originality is a great thing and the Wachowskis do it best. Overall Jupiter Ascending lacked plot depth and great acting abilities, but it won it all back with groundbreaking visuals. Even though many more big movies are coming out in 2015, this one would be one of the best for all we know. It may not be everyone's piece of cake, but it sure is a fun sci-fi adventure that shouldn't be forgotten.
A brain-squeezing Space Opera. What more do you want? (by mick-wilson)
'Jupiter Ascending' was panned I suspect by the same small brains that only love to slag by comparison. I'm thinking of "Kings Solomon's Mines" in the shadow of "Raiders". I'm thinking of "Fifth Element" being compared to 'Star Wars'. I'm thinking "new Batman" to "old Batman". And on, and on. Well, a fickle fie on that that. "Jupiter Ascending" is fun, is spectacular, and is in no way sillier than the original 'Star Wars' as in episode IV . Yes, the gravity- surfing boots were hokey, but no <more>
more than light sabers or Oh The Voice of Obi from Beyond.I mean, and flipping' heck! Does everything in cinema have to be mean and retro and grungy and full of old failing and aging superheroes with bad knees and depression? This all getting so tired so fast.I loved this film precisely because it was full of meaningless gloss, and bless the Matrix Guys for not making another self-referential piece of pablum. It's fun. It's stupid. It has nothing to tell us about the meaning of life.It's not Deep, Portentous and Meaningful tripe like 'Avatar' and 'After Earth'. Thank goodness!'Jupiter Ascending' is A-grade Space Opera and let's just leave it at that. Get a life, critics.
Better than it's being given credit for (by otaking241)
So I think this movie is much better than it's being given credit for. As an SF film, the Wachowskis have done a nice job of crafting an interesting and intelligible world, and the narrative structure is solid if far from original. The major flaw is that none of the main characters are interesting--badly cast, badly written or badly directed, I don't know which-- but it deflates what would otherwise be a genuinely enjoyable movie. 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.**Spoilers <more>
Below**To start out, for all that it lacks originality, I think the narrative in Jupiter Ascending is actually fairly well crafted. What you have is a basic journey motif, in which Jupiter visits each of the three children of her previous incarnation before returning home. Each of the children has their own agenda and plans for Jupiter, and in the process of dealing with each she learns about her former self, the universe she inhabits and the circumstances surrounding her predecessor's death. The Wachowskis reveal the details of this universe gradually so that we learn about it along with Jupiter, and share her process of growth and discovery.Unfortunately, this ideal is complicated by Jupiter herself, who not only fails to grow through the film but seems to lack any real defining characteristics. This is undoubtedly attributable to the film's plot, which denies Jupiter almost any agency in the journey she is undergoing. Rather, she is repeatedly kidnapped by agents of one sibling or another, and later saved by her pursuer-turned-bodyguard-turned-lover Caine and/or his friends in the intergalactic police force Aegis. The few times she actually makes a choice on her own she is either being duped or giving in to threats from some other party. Casting Jupiter as a damsel in distress rather than someone who takes charge of her own destiny is a huge missed opportunity, and in my opinion the movie really fails for so manyCompounding this failing is the casting of the main characters. Both Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum are easy on the eyes, but neither has any real gravitas, or even a persona to bring with them to their role, and neither makes much of an effort to develop one within the film. Their performances can be most kindly described as "inoffensive"--but that certainly isn't enough to make the audience care about them. Even the inevitable love connection that develops between them feels false, tacked-on and forced. We don't see Jupiter fall in love with Caine--she has to tell us, and his confused reaction is not nearly so bad as our own.The reason I think so many people have given this film the cold shoulder isn't that it's unoriginal. Compared with last summer's blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, that film was less original. But it had the smirking, winking camp that makes audiences think they're in on some kind of joke as they give more money to the Disney/Marvel insipidity complex . Jupiter Ascending does not--it's presented seriously, without camp, and no smirks whatsoever. I don't think it takes itself too seriously, but it doesn't try to make any jokes at its own expense either, and I don't think audiences in this time are open to a serious SF film of this kind.On a final note, in comparing this film with the Wachowskis most famous and original effort, The Matrix, I think there are more parallels than people are currently crediting them with. First, Jupiter Ascending is not really a rags-to-riches story. Sure, Jupiter goes from a cleaning woman who tries to sell her eggs so her cousin can buy a flatscreen TV to the owner of much of the known universe, but it is the power than goes with that role--not the wealth--that is important. In gaining the power to save the Earth from harvesting, Jupiter is The One in the same way Neo was in The Matrix. Second, one of the underlying themes in both films is the danger of commodifying human life. In The Matrix, humans become batteries to power the machines that control them; in Jupiter Ascending, they become the serum that allows the galactic aristocracy to achieve immortality. What's interesting is how this message has been influenced by the ~15 years between the films: in a post-Occupy world obsessed with income inequality, the threat comes not from a robot overlord but an uncaring, self-obsessed "entitled" class that exploits other humans for its own gain. In this sense Jupiter Ascending may have more in common with last year's train wreck Elysium, but is a much, much better effort.
