Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending ★★½

Although Jupiter Ascending features spectacular production designs, well-shot action sequences, top-notch cinematography and visual effects, and for the most part, good performances, it ultimately makes for a disappointing effort from the Wachowskis, with horrendous romantic dialogue, painfully boring characters (in particular, its incredibly useless protagonist), an unoriginal and poorly written story, and a script that displays too many ideas that are never explored.

Also, Eddie Redmayne gives a performance that's so unbelievably and laughably bad it's actually quite amazing.
