I think one of the reasons that people label Jupiter Ascending as confusing mess that that they don't realize it is a fairy tale. Because when you start looking JA as a fairy tale (rather than say, a superhero or dystopia) all it's plot points come together in a pretty standard modern Grimm story.
I totally think that’s an element of it. I’m perpetually amazed whenever I come across people complaining that the science of Jupiter Ascending isn’t up to scratch. In relation to this, people are wont to bring up things like the ridiculousness of royalty-sensing bees and the implausibility of an enormous refinery being hidden behind the storm clouds of Jupiter. That, to me, is like complaining that an evil queen having a magical mirror that talks to her isn’t historically accurate, or questioning the architectural soundness of a gingerbread house. To question such things is to miss the point entirely.
Jupiter Ascending is a wild fantasy that operates primarily on a fantastic or allegorical level - it should be viewed at a safe distance from reality, and enjoyed as the fairy tale it was so clearly intended to be.
