Jupiter Ascending marks an impressive, if clunky, entry in the Wachowski siblings' eclectic filmography. Combining elements of science, mythology and 1950s pulp, the directors' new space opera is a wild ride that's filled with sweeping action, thought-provoking ideas and vast potential. It also presents a bright and colorful universe that, like Star Wars and Avatar, is just begging to be explored. Unfortunately, the story doesn't quite hit its mark, with several extraneous subplots mucking it up. While Jupiter Ascending reaches for the stars, it falls a bit short of that, landing somewhere in the middle of deep space.
