Wachowski tries to merge Matrix, Star Wars and every possible sci-fi film for effects to a boring outcome!
Cast: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Sean Bean
Released on: Home Entertainment Services by Sony DADC
What’s it about: Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) unaware of her galactic destiny that has the potential to alter the whole universe and its many operations, makes a living out of cleaning other people’s toilets. But when Cain (Channing Tatum), a man/wolf hybrid, barges into her life saving her from death, she is introduced to a reality which was far from real for her. She is the answer to the many worries of another planet and also the undoing of an evil man Belam Abrasax (Eddie Redmayne). How she claims her destiny and owns the earth form the story.
What’s in the DVD: There are two special featurettes bundled up with this DVD. One is Jupiter Jones: Destiny is Within Us (6:56) which has characteristics interviews of Mila Kunis and all her co-stars talking about her character. And as expected, it narrates how it finds inspirations Wizard Of Oz, Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland as admitted by the Wachowskis. So there’s a princess or rather an empress and an unlikely prince with some forced romance.
The second featurette is Jupiter Ascending: Genetically Spliced (10:25) which gives a sneak peek into how the various characters were conceptualised and designed.
Why to watch: There aren’t many compelling reasons to watch this film. A half-baked, in-your-face visual effects dilutes anything that could be watchable here. Channing Tatum you ask? Well, with those brown eyebrows, he was as good as nobody! If you do want watch it, check out the extras instead to know how much hard work has gone behind this horrible spectacle of extraterrestrial nonsense!
