Jupiter Ascending

Aw, you know, I totally understand why people will not get on with this film at all.

But at least the Wachowskis try to do things a little differently. For example, the eponymous Jupiter at least has some real agency by the end of the film, and makes her own decisions on her own terms.

Yes, Channing (who is absolutely, fine, by the way) does keep popping up to save her, but he doesn’t tell her what to do.

And yes, she does go along with the whole thing rather too easily in the beginning without asking the obvious questions.

But I had fun with the film, despite the fact that the fight/action scenes are a tad too long, and Bae Doo-Na is criminally underused.

Now, would somebody please get Eddie Redmayne a throat lozenge …
