JUPITER ASCENDING

In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by the ruthless son of a powerful family who lives on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign. -- IMDB

The acting is mediocre, the first third incoherently jumps all around the place, the storyline ok - but the special effects are absolutely awesome! The Wachowski brothers, who brought us the Matrix trilogy, haven't given us as good a story as in the Matrix, but the photography and special effects are stunning, especially in 3D. Very pleasing on the eye, vividly rendered, energetic  with some holes poked a astrology, crop circles and bureaucracy - among others. It's fast paced with lots of action and, if you are looking for a movie during which you forget about plot holes and just revel in the slickness of the effects, this is for you.
