(This review may contain spoilers).
Despite starting off with some issues (my eyes wouldn’t adjust to the 3D showing at first), I did find this film really quite entertaining to watch. I’d seen it advertised several times and was quite intrigued by the plot and scenes shown.
The special effects in this film were really cool, but I have to say, I was a bit disappointed in Jupiter’s character. Although her intelligence was shown in part, I felt she didn’t really act in the way she literally stated her personality to be like in the beginning. At the same time, by the end of the film, Jupiter’s character had grown on me a bit. Though not quite as much as she seemed to have grown on Caine.
The whole concept of recurrence was a really interesting one, but I still wasn’t entirely sure what it really meant. There were some indications that Jupiter might have shared some personality traits with her predecessor, but it wasn’t explored nearly as well as I felt it could have been.
It was interesting to see the different personalities of Balem, Titus and Kalique. I would have liked to see more of Kalique, but I really didn’t like Balem or Titus at all. Still, their intentions for the Earth were interesting and I think they could have been more interesting characters if there had been more time for them to be shown.
I found Stinger to be a really intriguing character. I do also really like Sean Bean as an actor, so it was cool to see him in this. I also found Caine really interesting and I would have liked to know more about both of their back stories.
I liked seeing Jupiter’s interactions with her family and there were some quite amusing moments in this film. There was a lot that was cliched, and I don’t think I’d watch this film again, but it made for an entertaining couple of hours.
