masterminds the Wachowskis follow 2012's
with another ambitious sci-fi action epic. Mila Kunis stars as a down-on-her-luck human who discovers she is intergalactic royalty and, with the help of a genetically enhanced soldier (Channing Tatum), must attempt to prevent the Earth from being "harvested" by profit-obsessed alien aristocrat Eddie Redmayne. The action jumps from the streets of Chicago to far flung planets in breathtaking fashion, but while the Wachowskis have not lost their visual flair, the disorganised plot loses your interest very early on. With the underlying comments on wealth and corruption only lightly touched upon, the scope of the film does not allow for much character or story development, leaving Kunis and Tatum struggling to make the most of their roles, while Redmayne chews the scenery as the Voldemort-like baddie. Ultimately,
proves a diverting but quite empty experience. Fans hoping for shades of the film-makers' earlier work may find themselves lost in space.
A seemingly ordinary young woman discovers she is the Queen of the Earth, and has the power to save it from destruction. With an alien warrior at her side, she sets about protecting the planet from an evil overlord. Sci-fi adventure, starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne and Sean Bean.
