A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive industry.

When I first saw the trailer for this, I was excited, but then when it was released in cinemas, I started hearing all the negative reports but I still wanted to see it for myself.

If I didn’t know it before, you could tell it’s a Wachowski film.

I feel that throughout the movie it goes from visually entertaining to visually predictable, like they were trying too hard to be futuristic. Some of the scenes went on too long, namely the fight scenes.

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have absolutely zero chemistry together, in fact, I could have done without the love story completely, and I even feel that it ruined the film for me!

I feel Eddie Redmayne was wasted in this role that anyone could have done, as it wasn’t anything special.

I know you can’t spend ages in a film dwelling on it but I feel Mila Kunis’ character, Jupiter, accepted things a bit too quickly and her concern for her mum and family was pretty much non-existent.

The story definitely had potential and could have been better by perhaps getting rid of the love story, toning down on the visuals and getting better actors in the lead roles.

I’ve seen it once; I see no need to watch it ever again!
