Jupiter Ascending, directed by the Wachowskis, follows the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a young woman who works as a maid and lives with her family in Chicago. Her life takes a drastic turn when she is targeted by aliens who want her dead. Unbeknownst to Jupiter, she is in fact a genetic match for the House of Abrasax, a powerful ruling family in the universe.

In order to claim her inheritance, Jupiter is aided by a genetically engineered warrior named Caine Wise (Channing Tatum) who is half-human and half-wolf. Caine is initially sent to capture Jupiter but instead ends up protecting her from those who wish to harm her.

Together, Jupiter and Caine journey through the galaxy, encountering various alien races and learning about the history and politics of the universe. They visit different planets, including the luxurious and opulent planet of Titus Abrasax (Douglas Booth) and the desolate and dangerous planet where a former Abrasax heir, Balem (Eddie Redmayne), resides.

As Jupiter learns more about her heritage and the power that comes with it, she realizes the threat she poses to the current ruling class and the lengths they will go to maintain their power. Balem, in particular, sees Jupiter as a threat to his own rule and will stop at nothing to eliminate her.

The film is visually stunning with elaborate sets, intricate costumes and impressive special effects. The action scenes are intense and thrilling, particularly the aerial battles between the characters.

The performances from the cast are noteworthy, with Mila Kunis delivering a convincing portrayal of a reluctant hero who is thrust into a new world she doesn't fully understand. Channing Tatum's portrayal of Caine is also strong, with his character being a skilled fighter with a complicated past.

However, it is Eddie Redmayne's performance as Balem that steals the show. Redmayne's portrayal of the villain is both unsettling and captivating, with his character being ruthless and unpredictable.

Overall, Jupiter Ascending is a visually stunning and action-packed sci-fi adventure that explores the themes of power, inheritance, and the importance of self-discovery. While some critics may find the plot convoluted, the film is an enjoyable and entertaining space opera that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Jupiter Ascending is a 2015 science fiction movie. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3 and a MetaScore of 40.
