    Visual effects of this film were good , especially in 3D . Because of that I was able to get some entertainment from this movie .

    Jupiter ( played by Mila Kunis ) lives a middle class life on planet earth , but unknown to her she is destined for great things ; that is , if she is not killed first....

    .....For , uneasy lies the head that wears the crown....and she is royalty , not just on earth , but of the intergalactic kind....

    And she is inheritor of a fortune that is the envy of others....in fact the others are so much after the fortune that her life is in danger....

    But she has protectors too , and one of them ( played by Channing Tatum ) is good enough for her to fall in love with him....

    And so there are attempts to kidnap her , and her saviours have to strain their wits and their muscles to fight to save her...

    But those who want to take her captive are too many , and saving her not so easy....

    And even if she is saved , her family is vulnerable....

    So we see fights occur in space---in the vastness of the cosmos....

    And they occur between human like aliens and reptile like monsters....

    And they fight using modern weapons as well as their bare hands....

    And they fight in spaceships as well as the empty space of the cosmos....

    And they fight on planet Jupiter....

    In the midst of all this , Jupiter just wants to return back to her ordinary life on earth and her ordinary dreams---like that of buying a telescope....

    And she wants the man she loves to reciprocate her feelings , though she is a royal while he is just a ordinary soldier....

    So what is it that Jupiter has inherited ?? And why do aliens want to take over her inheritance ?? And does the man she loves return her feelings ?? And can she and her family survive ??
    Watch the movie for the answers....

    It is the visual effects that save the film , and make it watchable .
    Acting and dialogues are not anything special , though the romantic angle could have been developed more by the director .

    Mila Kunis doesn't look good in this film , not does Channing Tatum . Fight sequences are decently picturised .

    Verdict---Okay .

    Warning---other reviewers have completely disliked the movie .
