You can't help but feel what a wasted opportunity Jupiter Ascending is. You have an expansive and interesting new universe, some interesting characters, powerful houses fighting for power and dominion over planets etc., some very good special effects and a couple of worthwhile action sequences and yet the movie still sucks.

The visuals and the art style are both top notch and come very well together with a very good soundtrack and AMAZING sound design. Seriously, the sounds on the drones in particular are brilliant! Worth watching, especially for sci fi fans.
