A potential sci fi movie that fails with way too many foreign actors
19 October 2018 | by euroasiangeneticSee all my reviews

There's no secret anymore, every time there are foreigners in an Asian movie 90% of them are god awful actors and 10% are pretty good but get too small parts. Bye Bye Jupiter is no exception or shall we say worse with 99 % worse then amateur acting and 1% good acting but that is the girl who is naked.

Dr Eiji Honda is on a mission to save humanity to create a new living planet due to earth is getting over populated. But to due that he needs to destroy Jupiter to make it a 2nd moon to march breedable. But he encounters two problems, one a activist group is onboard to sabotage his mission, two a black hole has entered the solar system.

This movie is a big mess, it looks interesting what they had in mind but lacks because of poor choices of cast. A dreadful 3/10
