Thought provoking rags to riches tale, putting into perspective the value of life
I saw this film in the Milton Keynes Cineworld 4DX Super screen with a 3D viewing...Wow factor set to out of this world.
The story is wonderfully imagined, set on many worlds with awesome space scenes showing beautiful star ships and galactic scale.
The Plot and character development is very familiar and really is a missed opportunity to add some intelligence to what is in many ways a thought provoking rags to riches tale, putting into perspective the value of life. Hopefully we'll get a follow up delving into that universe and it's limitless possibilities.
Needless to say I was impressed with what in my view makes for great movies. This film has immense repeat value because its simple and looks good while being exciting.
My friends and I opted to see the film in the new Cineworld 4DX super screen with 3D and it really did feel like we had gone on an American theme park ride. The seats moved in a very articulated manner complementing the motion of the screen and had jolts and impacts felt through the chair like getting hit in the back or landing on the floor. The weapons fire that missed could be felt whizzing past my head and the explosions enhanced by the bright flashes from the 4DX auditorium. When the action hits the river, splashes are felt with drops of water, I expected it, still surprising and effective. The fragrance element worked a treat too. Linking what you see with what you can smell like the flowers when a character walks through them or the smell of action
burning metal. Smoke or mist mirrored with smoke machines by the
screen and around the seats creates a very immersed experience, like being in the film to a degree.
Jupiter Ascending was the best introduction to the 4DX technology. Clearly demonstrated a level of experience that is sure to become a major success with the right films. I was looking forward to this film last year and, it was worth the wait. The 4DX Super screen with 3D was quite expensive but, immersing and effective so it felt satisfying with such a visually stunning film.
This film is a great date movie, fun for families, perfect for sci-fi junkies, thought provoking and good looking.
I can only hope you have at much fun as we all did.
