Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets

What is it?

The 3D space opera movie Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets that was based on the science fiction comic series Valérian And Laureline.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers.

In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories.

Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha-an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other.

There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

Final Thoughts

This movie looks like it was probably pretty expensive to make, it was longer than it should have been, I think that Dane DeHaan was definitely miscast and should have not played this role and maybe even Cara Delevingne who I think did a better job in her role, and it felt a bit empty; but there were some interesting visuals and aliens and creatures and some other things to at least somewhat enjoy about this movie.

I would rate it a 5 – 6 out of 10.
