I enjoyed this. I liked the script even with the really silly parts (ie Jupe and the bees). The acting was really well done. It felt kinda like watching a comic book. I love comic books so, that's not a diss. I read some of the "goofs" and such and a lot of them can be explained away. As my late father use to tell people, "Just watch the movie and shut up".
Now. Jupe (Jupiter). I love her. I love her more as a female action hero because she's more down to Earth...get it? Down to Earth? Anyway, most action heroines are either super strong, super smart, super fast, etc. Jupe is just human. She ain't got none of that. She makes stupid human mistakes. She's a smartass like a regular human. She defiant. She can't really fight, but she can slap around a bad guy who can't fight either. She's smart enough to duck when somebody is shooting laser beams at her. She's not taking heels when she should be taking sneakers. And most of all, she knows where to put her knee when a guy puts her in a choke hold. That's awesome.
Caine. Caine is hunky. The end. He's half man, half wolf and has prosthetic wings. He can kick butt, too. What the heck do you have to think about?
Her Earthly family is hilarious. Her Reoccurrence family is hilarious too, just in a "they're all nutcases" sort of way.
I like the action. I like the storyline. I wish I could find out what happens after as I'm sure there should be others that want to nimble on the Earth.
You should watch it.
