With three big name stars (Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Eddie Redmayne), one might believe that Jupiter Ascending is a good film. It's not!  This is just another huge bomb from the Wachowski's, who somehow manage to keep misfiring on all cylinders.
The days of the Matrix are long gone, yet they keep pumping out overpriced garbage, (Where do they get the funding ?) I didn't think the Wachowski's could make another movie as bad as Cloud Atlas; but they have succeeded admirably.
Jupiter Ascending is nothing more than a conflagration of special effects, a confusing storyline, and Channing Tatum's pointy ears. The Wachowski's must be in competition with M. Night Shyamalan to see who can waste the most money directing a horrible movie. They should re-name this film Jupiter Descending, because that's where it's going, Down-Down-Down like a sinking ship.
