Channing Tatum in Jupiter Ascending

dvd of the week

It’s hard to claim that the Wachowskis’ sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending is “good” but it’s certainly entertaining. Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a Russian immigrant housekeeper who is actually the genetic reincarnation of one of the richest people in the universe. After her death, her children Balem (Eddie Redmayne), Titus (Douglas Booth), and Kalique (Tuppence Middleton) have squabbled over her fortune and when they discover that she has reappeared as a clueless Earthling, they all send bounty hunters to get her – or kill her. One of those is Caine Wise (Channing Tatum). He reaches Jupiter first, just as all hell is breaking loose, and he convinces his former commander Stinger (Sean Bean) to help him protect Jupiter. The rest of the film is a series of chase sequences, super-heroic battles, double-crosses, myth-heavy back story monologues and jaw-dropping, occasionally hilarious, art direction.
