Consensus: Pleasing to the eye but narratively befuddled, Jupiter Ascending delivers another visually thrilling misfire from the Wachowskis.

Where were the Guardians of the Galaxy when we needed them? If only they had prevented the disastrous atrocity that is "Jupiter Ascending" from infiltrating Earth's movie theaters before it was too late!

Don't even get me started on the aliens, many of whom would have been turned away from the cantina door in Mos Eisley.

With just a few script tweaks, this long, dull and downright bizarre bore-a-thon could have been more aptly named Uranus Numbing.

Openly loves the corny nonsense it's referencing and wants to bring it to breathtakingly gorgeous life with all of the money the Wachowskis could spirit away.
