Jupiter Ascending – Review

A movie that had mix review before even it even came out due to ‘changed’ director. Anyway  Lana and Andy Wachowski brother and sister, previously known as the Wachowski’s brothers as back with another concept movie. They are famous for The Matrix trilogy and V for Vendetta and only that so far. Their last movie, Cloud Atlas was a little hard to digest but constructive.

JUPITER ASCENDING

Those stunning eyes.

 

BoView
The plot is really heavy talking about how another undiscovered race who rules over earth and extremely advanced. Similar idea to The Matrix and a little futuristic like Cloud Atlas. One person who is so powerful and rule all over everyone and a world that beyond our imagination. The plot is a little strong and compressed in which should have been divided to another part.
For us, it happened to fast and how Jupiter is so relax is beyond our understanding. We saw some MIB technology in this movie and some alien that require Agent J’s clearance.
On the character, Mila Kunis was so plain. There is nothing special about her anymore. She was talking to much and just being herself which almost made us doze off. Channing Tatum in the other hand seems been trying to hard to capture the character. He is suppose to play this bad*ass half dog human hybrid but it doesn’t connect. What we saw was like Duke just got on the wrong flight back home and fighting his way with some MIB aliens.

Is there a rat behind me?

Rating 4.5/10
A movie produced by the people who was well known in making good movie, this is kinda sad. Which ever Wachowski’s brother that had their sex change should just change back to what ever they were when they were making good movies. It feels like Michael Jackson forgot nose and still showed up for the Emmy.
The CGI was good but only that. The rest is just bullet shots that missed their target.

Release date: 5th February 2015

JUPITER ASCENDING – Contest(ENDED)

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “JUPITER ASCENDING,” an original science fiction action adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski.

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things.  Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks.  Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, “JUPITER ASCENDING” is written and directed by the Wachowskis.  Award-winning producer Grant Hill, with whom they have collaborated since “The Matrix” Trilogy, is producing, together with Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski.  Roberto Malerba and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.

Behind the scenes, “JUPITER ASCENDING” reunites the Wachowskis with their longstanding collaborators, who most recently worked with them on “Cloud Atlas.”  They include Oscar®-winning director of photography John Toll (“Braveheart,” “Legends of the Fall”); production designer Hugh Bateup; editor Alexander Berner; costume designer Kym Barrett; and hair and makeup designer Jeremy Woodhead.  The music is composed by Oscar® winner Michael Giacchino (“Up”).
