Total Film

Both visually and in the action stakes, Jupiter Ascending could give pretty much any space movie a run for its money.

Jupiter Ascending feels like a truncated, Cliffs Notes version of something that might have worked a lot better as a mini-series. Two hours...

The Guardian

By Peter Bradshaw
It’s all very chaotic and entertaining, like a bizarre cult sci-fi TV show that somehow survived a threat of mid-season cancellation.

Jupiter Atrocious.

By mavram
I went to an early screening today. There are no effective words for movies so bad they belong in the hall of shame for worst and most painful movies to watch of all time. The best part of this movie...

True Sci Fi

By jbrow29
Very much a fun movie, full of action sequences. No lack of special effects. Highly recommend for Sci Fi fans. The movie has a deep subplot but for all its complexities the director was able to knit...

good, but could be better.

By altwav
Good concept, a little underdeveloped. Crazy scope of story as expected from this duo, but with so much unexplained back story, I would imagine it's easy for the casual movie goer to be very confused...

Fun but weak

By Tough Crowd
The special effects and action scenes were fun but in some cases drawn out, whereas the explanatory plot seamed rushed. It felt like this should have been either two movies or one 3 hour movie to...

Beauty... Stunning... Crap

By dorkshady
Jupiter Ascending is the most beautiful, visually stunning piece of incomprehensible crap. It's gorgeous to look at, but it's dialogue is mind-numbing....

Jupiter REALLY???

By tws4068y
One of the shallowest, most poorly designed movies in recent memory. The dialogue was unintelligible about 50% of the time such that any theme continuity was lost. But then there didn't seem to be...
