    Wait... her name is Jupiter Jones? Like the first detective of the "Three Investigators" youth books?! The hell?!?! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Investigators

      A Feminist tale about a woman who does nothing meaningful, gets kidnapped constantly and orders a bunch of men to kill and get killed by other men for her benefit.
      Real powerful character there.

        Hate to be the one that pisses everyone off here, but lots of REAL women would say/point out a transgender woman still isn't a woman.
        They'd specify that they (transgebders) don't have the life experience from being born female and the years of physical, emotional, mental and psychological development or interaction that a woman would have.
        So, no Larry/Lana wouldn't know how to write a movie about a woman from a woman's perspective.
        that doesn't mean Larry/Lana can't try writing a good movie regardless of gender/identity.

              A couple of years later.....this was actually the first time I found out one of the Wachowskis transitioned.

              That's how off the radar they were to me after the Matrix.

                      "I CREATE LIFE!!!" Will go down as one of my favourite bad movie quotes.

                        Finally watched this. Infuriating directing. Characters wait without reacting over and over again inexplicably to allow some new peril to develop. And how many times can you do the "villain thinks he got rid of the hero then the damsel in distress is about to get taken advantage of then the hero races against time to save her" in one movie. Cheap tricks like that don't make real drama, tension and release. Disappointing when you think they paid people tens of millions to write and produce this and that's the best they could do.

                            when i saw this review i was like i've heard of this somewhere, then i remembered it was the shitty movie i was forced to watch at a sleepover i was forced to go to. ironic that it was so bad i actually remembered it and i have a terrible memory. lol

                              Please don't bring up rotten political subjects like "transgender", Theory. Such suicidal crazy topics are going to split your audience. And split it has... I'm leaving. Now that I'm no longer a subscriber I'll just be brutally honest: For a person who judges actors on their performance yours reminds me of my creepy paligimist-like grandmother who I'd rather have nothing to do with.

                                The whole video was absolute comedy but the best part was when they cut to that sideways clip. Paul Giamatti yelling fuck was just absolutely perfect in that moment 😂

                                    Dude she put the sticky side of the pad onto the injury. That side is meant to ensure that the blood doesn't leak out of the bottom. She stuck it upside down. Unbelievable.

                                        Boy Lana Wachowski is transgender (i'm not kidding). You can see her by looking the red and blue pill on The Matrix, that symbolise her

                                            Eh, other times you are complaining that Hollywood has no original ideas, just comic adaptations and remakes. And then a new idea comes along and you hate that too?

                                            I love this movie, it is original and entertaining, and like Dune or Avatar, created a world I would love to see explored more.

                                              1:50 I understand all the other complaints but since when is the fact that Spaceships have been done before bad? Is only one movie ever allowed to include spaceships? Do all other space operas have to exclusively feature teleporters to get around?

                                                Fun fact; terrible movies (even this one) are enjoyable to watch if you actively make fun of the movie at the bad parts, and enjoy the actually enjoyable action sequences. I personally have gotten so good at this I can enjoy any movie. Like Batman and Robin, Meet the Robinson's, and even video game movies. (I'll even defend a few video game movies.)

                                                    To be fair, in Cloud Atlas, it was supposed to represent the evolution of the English language and what it would sound like centuries into the future. Am I the only one who loved Cloud Atlas?

                                                        You know, there’s some good stuff in this movie, but it’s all the extra stuff that is unnecessary that drags it down. Get rid of all the exposition and just reshoot the last villains lines with more powerful vocals and the rest of the movie can work

(And he actually admits he had a lot of fun playing skeletor) same reason Raul Julia played M Bison in street fighter as his final role before his death. (Mind you he practically carried that film as the best actor and he was practically on his deathbed fighting cancer)
