Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered hunter, arrives on Earth to locate her, making Jupiter finally aware of the great destiny that awaits her: Jupiter’s genetic signature marks her as the next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Ok.. so this movie had an amazing trailer, it’s made my the team that made the Matrix.. it’s going to be amazing.. and well.. it’s…
See we can’t even say it.. it just wasn’t.
They had the budget, they had the experience and what they produced.. was Cinderella in Space, meets Marvel Comic book special effects, meets… Game of Thrones..
Still sounding great right..
Our hero – rescuer.. can surf on the air.. with his boots.. – but for some reason no one else has them.. Think Marty McFly’s hover board.. only without the board.. again..cool right.
I think this is the catch.. at this point.. too many people went .. oh yes.. that will be cool.. and so what we end up with is a movie.. that’s almost non stop action.. lots of shooting and random bits..
Lots of deep plots that well aren’t that many twists.
Maybe too much memories of Flash Gordon..
Again.. we went in ready to love this.. ready to really love this.. and watching it on Imax.. some beautiful moments.. but lots of “really”… “oh really”..
Of course Bees were engineered.. of course a single broken piece of glass destroys an entire base.. – they can handle space and rescue suits that repair.. but a fire brigade or super repair crew.. of course not..
Cyber Punk still allusions to 16th century noble records and lawyers.. which are handled.. with a $100 bribe.. all just very surreal.. and well breaking the suspension of disbelief.
I think with the elements in place.. this could have been amazing.
I still some of the premises posed are smart.. but the resolution.. well just bad and unsatisfying.
This is a teen flick.. and not a good one.
This had promise.. and well I’m sorry.. but it’s one to Film Blast.
