Abysmal. A cacophony of confusing visuals and boring (laser) fight scenes that completely overshadow what was, potentially, a visually sumptuous epic. A five hour film spliced into nothingness? Result is a terrible waste of a decent cast, including recent Oscar best actor, Eddie Redmayne, and Mila Kunis.
What’s happened to The Wachowskis? After the seminal The Matrix trilogy, everything seems to have gone downhill. Their last film, Cloud Atlas, was something of a mess. But unlike Jupiter Ascending, at least that film had some redeeming features.
