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.

Jupiter Ascending is my first guilty pleasure of the year, and like a Snickers bar, it's deliciously gooey and nutty at the same time.

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.

The seamless rendering of winged giant lizard henchmen and ornate spiracle space stations conjures up a transporting spectacle of wonderment that goes far to paint over the film's bland, derivative blemishes.

Oh my. Jupiter ought to have just sat down until she had a good story to tell. The story is strange and forced, albeit with nice special effects.… More
