Upside Down

Slant Magazine
21 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The highlight of Upside Down —a sci-fi romance set in a world with, per the film's lengthy prologue that vaguely recalls the intro to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" video, twin planets "each with its own and opposite gravity"—is the moment Adam (Jim Sturgess) inadvertently pisses on the ceiling.

Upside Down - 3D

High-Def Digest
28 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Not even the great visual work that went into this movie makes it worth spending time with these characters or with this story. No matter how you look at it – 'Upside Down' or right-side up – this is a huge disappointment of a film. Skip it.

  • Conclusion: Upside Down may get your attention with its bold concept and ambitious visuals, but neither of those should distract you from the paper-thin fairy tale romance it uses them to tell. Even if the photography somehow doesn't disorient you, the trite storytelling is likely to disappoint.

Upside Down

  • Excerpt: I’d never really been too much of a fan of Kirsten Dunst until I saw Melancholia.  And no, it’s not just because there’s a scene in which she’s lying naked in the moonlight (though that doesn’t hurt). I was a passing fan of her in the Spider-Man films, have admired some of her more avant garde choices in films like The Cat’s Meow , On the Road and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind .  Still, it was last year’s Melancholia that really got my attention.

Upside Down (2012) 3D Review

DoBlu
20 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Upside Down explains itself as thus: Two planets with competiting gravitational pulls host inverse matter. Objects from the lower world exist in their gravitational field, and vice versa. Items pulled from one planetary surface to the other can be used to off set weight like a specialized pulley system. The catch? Inverse matter is strained when removed from its home surface, and will burn in a few hours.

Upside Down 3D Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
18 June 2013
  • Conclusion: There's an even better movie within Upside Down , but the one that Writer/Director Juan Solanas has fashioned isn't bad at all. It overcomes a rather trite love story thanks to not only its incredible visuals and novel idea but also a pair of energetic, sincere performance from Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess.

Upside Down

AV Club
14 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Nobody goes into a love story hoping for scientific rigor and a strict adherence to lab-tested, mathematically consistent laws of physics. So in theory, it doesn’t matter that Juan Solanas’ science-fiction romance Upside Down makes not the slightest grain of sense. Its story about two lovers (Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst) from twin worlds with conflicting gravity is meant as a metaphor for any of the seemingly vast gulfs that can come between people.
