Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending (2015)

Genre: Sci- Fi, Action, Adventure

It is not listed in the Genre above but this Sci-fi film is definitely a Romance 😛 ! I did not know it would be a romance and from the trailers I was all ready to accept a brilliant Sci-Fi Movie. It’s ok. The action scenes were great, big scenery and enough graphics to fill your boots. The design work (dresses, outfits)  was sublime! The characterization and portrayal of the three main actors Mila Kunis (Jupiter Jones), Channing Tatum (Caine Wise) and Eddie Redmayne (Balem Abrasax) was fantastic. However, the rest of the movie was rather generic and typical. The ending was predictable. The way we were introduced to everyone, one at a time and only one truly big battle to end all. Very Sci-fi. They focussed on the Romance part too much and left the Sci-Fi to traditional conventions. So much more could have been developed. I wanted her to stop them all, to do something grand but it ended as expected. A shame for a movie that was so good but just missed out being great. Though entertaining and worth a watch. Enjoy! 🙂

I give this film 3.5 Star out of 5!
