Comment
A young woman who has menial jobs cleaning other people houses until she meets an alien hunter and discovers that she is heir to one of the most powerful dynasties in the universe. She gets drawn into a battle for power between 3 sibling who are using the earth as a source of genetic material to create almost immortality. The plot is confusing nonsense and the characters and environments unbelievable. The set piece action scenes are visually impressive, Mila Kunis character is not convincing as some who suddenly finds she is a princess in a far off galaxy. It has the feel that someone came up with a good one paragraph plot synopsis and then gave the effects department a lot of time and money, but forgot to get a decent script writer. It has asppirations to be an updated Dune, but the lack of coherant plot prevented that, which is a shame given the quality of the actors n the film and the effort put into the effects.
