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.

I kind of had a tepidly good time in "Jupiter Ascending." It won me over in the same way that bag of tater tots in the freezer wins you over: it has its own freezer-burned charm.

A lot of people spent a lot of time and a lot of money making a lot of movie, but there's not much there.

Jupiter Ascending is inane from first frame to last - the dialogue is so clunky, I wondered if George Lucas had been brought in to do the rewrite.

Upon exiting, my wearied delight with Jupiter Ascending coexisted with pure bafflement. But I exited knowing that I'd seen a movie no other filmmaker could have made.

An utterly gorgeous visual delight, and it has some enjoyably goofy moments, managing to throw in some left-leaning, anti-elitism socio-economic subtext for good measure.
