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!

The Wachowskis create a churning, swooping C.G.I. universe that's decorated to the corners of the frame without taste or imagination.

Somewhere in this overlong and over-elaborate mess of a space opera, there is a story begging to emerge, if only the Wachowski siblings would let it show itself.

It gives good attention to the details of its universe and has a stunning visual design, but the plot is derivative, with an excess of dei ex machina (the… More
