Jupiter Jones was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along.

I'd have to put this more in the category of Fantasy over Science Fiction with the flying boots, strange space craft and mythical creatures/aliens. Took me a while into the film to realize exactly what was happening. Starts off with Jupiter narrating her tale and then, before we know, we're off into Fantasy Land. Good fun movie, however. If you don't try to reason "how did that happen?" you're sure to enjoy. Great visual effects, sound, and of course the music.

Surprisingly enjoyable SciFi/Fantasy. Lots of intense action and some heartwarming moments of hero rescues damsel in distress. Didn't realize it was a Warchowski Brothers film of "The Mattix" fame.

The beautiful, ever-watchable Mila Kunis projects attractive, down-to-earth qualities that would have anchored the film, if not for the excess of video-game-like action sequences and boring, unoriginal writing, derived from a kitchen sink chaos of other sci fi films. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars for effort, including spectacular costumes, aliens & occasionally-believable visuals; but only see it if you love science fiction/fantasy. Better yet, re-watch the 1999 classic, "The Matrix" which remains as the Wachowskis' best work (but AVOID its dismally poor sequels).

The Good: Loud, great effects, great surround sound with or w/o ATMOS as you are immersed in the experience. Park your brain (the prince saves the princess). The Bad: Acting and story-line. Did I say the sound is awesome?

It is NOT a sci-fi, fantasy or mythology movie. It shows stack of crappy graphical generated characters copied from older sci-fi or fantasy movies. It worths ZERO star !!!

Visually stunning and over the top, this "Cinderella in space" story's strength is its central female protagonist who is completely relatable, funny and fallible. Jupiter's journey is overblown and silly in many respects but it's nice to have a big, overblown, silly space opera that's not all about the dudes for a change. Enjoyable high production value, fun.

Many great quotes from IMDb:

Balem: My mother made me understand that every human society is a pyramid, and that some lives will always matter more than others. It is better to accept this than to pretend that it isn't true.

Jupiter: It's like my internal compass points directly at Mr. Wrong. Maybe it's my genes. Maybe I have defective engineering, too. And if that's the case, is there anyway to fix it?
Caine: [backing away] You are royalty now. I'm a splice, you don't understand what that means. I have more in common with a dog than I have with you.
Jupiter: I love dogs, I've always loved dogs.

Kalique: Each of us has the code for our optimal physical condition. The problem is our genes have an expiration date, which is transferred to ourselves. A long time ago someone figured out how to replace deteriorating cells with new ones. Today it's as easy as changing a light bulb.
Jupiter: Where do you get these light bulbs?
Kalique: We grow them.
