Jupiter Jones was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine Wise, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along - her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.Written by
This is the first 3D movie directed by the Wachowski sisters. See more »
The first time Jupiter is shown scrubbing the bowl of the toilet the seat is down. This is not something that anyone who knows how to clean a toilet (including actresses) would do. Apparently they caught this error and had her scrub it with the seat up the second time. See more »
Technically speaking, I'm an alien. And from the perspective of Immigration, an illegal one. My parents met at the University in Saint Petersburg, where he taught Astrophysics and she taught Applied Mathematics. My mother fell in love with him when she found him almost frozen to death on the bank of the Neva, staring at the stars.

I enjoyed this. I liked the script even with the really silly parts (ie Jupe and the bees). The acting was really well done. It felt kinda like watching a comic book. I love comic books so, that's not a diss. I read some of the "goofs" and such and a lot of them can be explained away. As my late father use to tell people, "Just watch the movie and shut up".
Now. Jupe (Jupiter). I love her. I love her more as a female action hero because she's more down to Earth...get it? Down to Earth? Anyway, most action heroines are either super strong, super smart, super fast, etc. Jupe is just human. She ain't got none of that. She makes stupid human mistakes. She's a smartass like a regular human. She defiant. She can't really fight, but she can slap around a bad guy who can't fight either. She's smart enough to duck when somebody is shooting laser beams at her. She's not taking heels when she should be taking sneakers. And most of all, she knows where to put her knee when a guy puts her in a choke hold. That's awesome.
Caine. Caine is hunky. The end. He's half man, half wolf and has prosthetic wings. He can kick butt, too. What the heck do you have to think about?
Her Earthly family is hilarious. Her Reoccurrence family is hilarious too, just in a "they're all nutcases" sort of way.
I like the action. I like the storyline. I wish I could find out what happens after as I'm sure there should be others that want to nimble on the Earth.
You should watch it.
