Jupiter Ascending is no new Matrix
5 second plot: Jupiter leads a very normal life on planet earth. Suddenly she becomes the center of attention for a trio of galactic royalty. They mostly seem to want her dead. Because she is the reincarnation of their mother, the queen of... well, everything apparently. Luckily for Jupiter she can count on a couple of new friends to help her fend off these crazy royals.
5 second review: Unfortunately it's nothing like The Matrix. It's more like The Matrix Revolutions. It's a big show with a lot of spectacular action. With an occasional magical moment (the bees). But it's no new galaxy far far away. I especially didn't like Channing Tatum's ears. And his boots. And his shield.
