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 toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, 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.

This movie is what happens when you have a junior kindergarten class write the script. What a truly awful movie. The disjointed over the top visuals did not help the movie.

Skip it. Oh My Goodness. What were they thinking? Someone had too much money to play with.

Loved it - beautiful movie filled with dashing and daring - a very wide-spanning yarn. Thanks again W. sisters. I can only imagine seeing this as a kid. I think, we have become a little jaded, unable to perhaps enjoy fully due to some small detail or a line not said the way you would expect. There are hundreds of wonders here.

This is a beautiful fever dream of a movie, showing what it's like when we live out young girls' fantasies in all their technicolor glory instead of saying over-the-top action movies are only worthwhile when they are based on boys desires. This was the perfect Galentine's Day movie when it came out in theaters and it remains so.

This movie reminds me so much of a 12 year old girl's fanfiction, and I adore it. The costume and scene designs are stunning, and the bad parts are the fun kind of bad. It's certainly not for everyone, but if the idea of Sean Bean as a half bee soldier hybrid intrigues you even a little, give this film a chance.

This was… an okay movie. Not the best, what with the shaky dialogue and unrealistic fighting scenes, but still an entertaining film.

I'd have to put this more in the category of Fantasy over Science Fiction with the flying boots, strange space craft and mythical creatures/aliens. Took me a while into the film to realize exactly what was happening. Starts off with Jupiter narrating her tale and then, before we know, we're off into Fantasy Land. Good fun movie, however. If you don't try to reason "how did that happen?" you're sure to enjoy. Great visual effects, sound, and of course the music.

Surprisingly enjoyable SciFi/Fantasy. Lots of intense action and some heartwarming moments of hero rescues damsel in distress. Didn't realize it was a Warchowski Brothers film of "The Mattix" fame.

Many great quotes from IMDb:

Balem: My mother made me understand that every human society is a pyramid, and that some lives will always matter more than others. It is better to accept this than to pretend that it isn't true.

Jupiter: It's like my internal compass points directly at Mr. Wrong. Maybe it's my genes. Maybe I have defective engineering, too. And if that's the case, is there anyway to fix it?
Caine: [backing away] You are royalty now. I'm a splice, you don't understand what that means. I have more in common with a dog than I have with you.
Jupiter: I love dogs, I've always loved dogs.

Kalique: Each of us has the code for our optimal physical condition. The problem is our genes have an expiration date, which is transferred to ourselves. A long time ago someone figured out how to replace deteriorating cells with new ones. Today it's as easy as changing a light bulb.
Jupiter: Where do you get these light bulbs?
Kalique: We grow them.
