REEL DEAL: Jupiter Ascending REVIEW

After years of waiting and numerous features of the trailer, finally Jupter Ascending has arrived in cinemas and will be showing this February 6.

Starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending brings one into an interstellar journey of struggle for power, profit and affection. As a human from Earth, Jupter (Kunis), finds herself into a complicated situation as the reoccurence (reincarnation) of the most powerful dynasty in the Universe. And of course this comes with threats of being killed or being used.

As it also reveals complex revelation about earth, beliefs, and long term struggle for power in the galaxy, it poses as an advantage and disadvantage to her on how can she handle this title that she hold.

Channing maybe the knight for her as he is the fighter and the hunter for her survival, while Jupiter shows her values and inteligence with her action. And wiith all these alien tech and characters, it comes with a lot of action and chase scenes. With each scene filled with details of the machinery and firepower used, it also raised awareness of sci-fi items that geeks would love.

The Wachowski siblings has indeed made the long wait worth it. Like they did with Cloud Atlas in 2012, it raises technological and philosophical possibilities. And with again discussion of life beyond the realm of Earth, alien life again is raised as a possibility.

JUPITER ASCENDING stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, and  Sean Bean.

JUPITER ASCENDING will be showing in cinemas February 6. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Deliberation time kids! 

Show summary in 3 lines: Expand and Ascend
Technical Effects: 4 out of 5 stars (As expected of the Wachowski siblings, visual is a smorgasbord of detail heavy visuals which brings life to the story )
Plot: 2 out of 5 stars (Quite predictable, however the visual provides a distraction)
Acting and Actors: 4 out of 5 stars  (Best performance goes to Mila Kunis for an emotional and action packed stunts)
Music and Soundtracks:  4 out for 5 stars (score is made by Michael Giacchino, who also did score for Speed Racer)
Pros:  Action scenes, Visual Effects, Sound and Motion scenes
Cons:   Plot holes, lack of origin details, cliche love story
Overall Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (Like the Wachowski's Cloud Atlas, it has that vision done right but still has room for improvement and a possible sequel )
