'Jupiter Ascending' Is More Eye-Catching Wachowski Fun


Sean Bean Channing Tatum Mila Kunis

The Wachowskis aren't the most prolific filmmakers, which is perhaps why their movies feel like events. When Warner Brothers shifted the release of their new sci-fi adventure 'Jupiter Ascending' back six months from last summer to this weekend, everyone smelled a stinker. But then this is Lana and Andy Wachowski, who have never made a truly awful movie. Although some might argue that point.

The siblings burst onto the scene in 1996 with 'Bound', an inventively moody thriller starring Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon as lovers who plot an elaborate heist. The film had great reviews, and has become a cult classic. Then three years later they released 'The Matrix', reinventing special effects with visually jaw-dropping gimmicks like bullet time. Although the plot itself wasn't terribly original, audiences flocked to see the film in record numbers, and also made hits of the less-beloved sequels 'The Matrix Reloaded' and 'The Matrix Revolutions', both released in 2003.

Jupiter Ascending Review


Good

Filmmaking siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski never do anything by halves. The Matrix was a genre-changing blockbuster followed by two head-scratching sequels that ramped everything up a bit too much. Speed Racer was simply too much eye-candy for most viewers. And Cloud Atlas' intertwined storylines left audiences both exhausted and exhilarated. Now they've taken on the space action adventure with unfettered gusto, creating an utterly bonkers story that can't help but keep us thoroughly entertained.

So it turns out that Jupiter (Mila Kunis), an immigrant cleaner in Chicago, is actually the recurrence of a powerful matriarch whose empire runs the universe as a big business. Her three children (Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton) are tussling over control, because their mother's re-appearance changes their inheritance rights. Chased by bounty hunters, Jupiter is rescued by Caine (Channing Tatum) and his cohort Stinger (Sean Bean), who help her navigate the complex galactic society to claim her genetic rights. But each of the three children has plans for her. And as she zips back and forth across the universe, Jupiter realises that she's going to need to rise to the occasion if she wants to save herself. And Earth.

The Wachowskis clearly understand that the story is far too complicated to make much sense, so they only provide enough information to hold the audience's interest. Large plot threads and characters pop up and disappear at random, while Jupiter's own journey lurches through a series of contrived set-pieces and tense encounters that feel oddly unresolved. But none of that really matters, because the film is infused with a sardonic sense of humour that makes it enjoyable. Even the bad guys are intriguing; there's not much Redmayne can do with his leather-trousered grump, but at least he goes for it. Kunis has a great time with Jupiter's continual sexy costume changes, while Tatum performs a series of action scenes with his shirt off for no real reason. All of the cast members dive in without hesitation, using sheer charisma to make the characters a lot of fun to watch.
