The movie stars: Sean Bean, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Doona Bae and Tuppence Middleton. We’ve added blurbs from a couple of the critics,below.

Alonso Duralde at TheWrap, gave it a great 85 score, stating: “Who cares if the story is occasionally impenetrable or if some gags land with a thud when the thrills and the eye candy keep coming at such a breathless pace? Jupiter Ascending doesn’t break the new ground that the Wachowskis have managed in the past…but the film never slacks in its efforts to wow us.”

Mick LaSalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 grade, saying: “A film very much of its moment, in ways both good and bad. But the important thing is that its virtues are extraordinary, while its flaws are easy to forget because they’re so common.”

Joe McGovern from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 58 score. He said: “Jupiter Ascending’s early cleverness dries up quickly, especially when Kunis is offscreen, leaving us with just another incoherent sci-fi spectacle.”

Manohla Dargis at The New York Times, gave it a 50 grade, saying: “With its nods to the original “Star Trek” and David Lynch’s proto-steampunk hallucination “Dune,” it seduces the eye with filigreed flourishes even as the mind reels from some of the mildewy storytelling.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 grade, stating: “Jupiter Ascending is best during its purely visual moments, of which there are many… All of which makes it a shame that the only sense the Wachowskis can count on is their visual one.”
