I have been a fan of some of the Wachowski's previous efforts, I love The Matrix and the sequels are alright in my opinion, Cloud Atlas was very ambitious and worked for the most part.
That being said Jupiter Ascending was very disappointing.
The plot was convoluted, the background story of most of the characters was confusing and unclear.
The story was cliche, it was about a person of humble beginnings that through circumstance finds out that they have a great destiny ahead of them, does that sound familiar?
(The bad guys harvest humans! I haven't seen that in a movie by the Wachowski's :/).
In short this movie was everything I feared it would be based on the trailers. Visually pretty but with a boring and cliched story. 5 years 8 months ago
This is not an intelligent movie. Definitely dumber than, let's say... the Star Wars prequels. I'm not gonna defend any part of this movie, except maybe costuming a little bit, but I enjoyed it. And it finally got me over my intense dislike of Channing Tatum. The movie is still a mess, and I probably only liked it because I am attracted to bright colours and space adventures. 5 years 8 months ago
