This is no Shakespeare, but good dumb entertainment

I don't know what the people who hated this film expected. Haven't they seen the trailer? It's just the extended version of that. And unlike most of the films right now, the action keeps up the pace throughout the movie, it doesn't just have a few cool scenes that end up in the trailer.

Is it a smart story that makes one philosophical question the meaning of life? No. It is a puerile story of intergalactic feudal royalty of human origins that controls the entire universe, of girls that wash toilets and find out they are princesses, of loyal knights that love and protect them and of evil men with no scruples that try to kill them. Yes, it is a fairy tale. But a visually stunning one, with beautiful actors and amazing special effects.

Bottom line: forever remembered as the movie in which Sean Bean doesn't die, Jupiter Ascending is a science fiction upgrade of a standard princesses and knights fairy tale. Once one realizes that, one can fully enjoy the good special effects and the fast pace. It lasts for two hours, but it never lets up the action.

Doesn't deserve...

...the hate. Had a lot of neat things going on, had a bunch of sci fi that we'd all like to see in our lifetimes...and Mila Kunis. Watched it 4 times now, really wish they'd do a sequel...but I know the money's not there. It's a good, fun flick. There are a lot that aren't. HAHA, and now I have to add a line or my review's not worthy. Gotta love IMDb. Anyone think they're gonna bring the message boards back?

Ridiculous Overdose of Eye & Sound Candy…Forget the Thinking Caps & Enjoy

A Visual Overdosing Indulgence of Incredible Beauty at Times makes this a Treat to Watch and Thinking Caps are Optional and Not Recommended. If You Decide to don the Brain Beany be Prepared to be Disappointed at Best and Awfully Angry at Worst.

The Title Character is Played by Mila Kuhns, She of the Modern Thespian, the Mumbling, Swallowing of Words, Mush Mouth Deliverer of Dialog that the Ears Strain to Hear...And Her Facial Expressions are Unvaried and Non-Existent. The Same no natter what the Scene Demands. Ditto Channing Tatum as the "Super-Hero" Saviour and Love Interest.

To get the Human Actors Out of Way (the Movie does so fast), there is Sean Bean as a Bee Keeping Helper of sorts that is mostly Background and Doesn't Do Much. Then there's Current Best Actor Winner Eddie Raymonde and after this He nay have to Return the Statue just to Save Face.

Now on to the Eye Candy. Reminding of all of those Star Trek TV Clones and other Modern Sci-Fi Stuff like Brazil, Flash Gordon, Dune, Star Wars, and such, the Movie is Filled to Overflow with Whirling and Whizzing Actions Scenes. Ultra-Colorful and Loaded with Mayhem and Debris. It's Exciting and Hits with a Powerful Punch and is quite Entertaining (for those without the brain beanie).

You get Your Money's Worth for sure, just don't Ask for it Back when the Dialog, Script, and Story don't meet Your Egghead Approval. This Type of Thing isn't for the Sci-Fi Elite (was Star-Wars or Star Trek?), it's Sci-Fi for the Average Action Junkie Schmoes, That's What it is and Nothing More.

Note...As a bonus the Musical Soundtrack is Fun and Quite Effective and Entertaining.
