Very Disappointed - Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets review by AL

Spoiler Alert
30/11/2017

I was really looking forward to watching this, having loved the Fifth Element and other Besson films. However i was just bored, the plot seemed to go off all over the place. I never usually pick up on editing, but the edting was aweful. Space bits and CGI were fine, just the plot and acting were terrible, no wonder if flopped at the box office. Real shame. Lead character was dreadful as well, Cara was better.

Great comic. Flacid movie. Missed opportunity - Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets review by JB

Spoiler Alert

Casting for Valerian was totally wrong. Once that terrible decision was made, it was impossible to save the movie.

The storyline was ok (thanks to the original great comic material which pre-existed Star Wars and inspired Lucas), the dialogues were laughingly bad. I suggest employing proper writers rather than relying on Besson's "wit".

Main actor, on top of being wrongly cast and having poor lines was terrible. Even Cara Delevingne was better.

Some visuals were ok, not groundbreaking (mostly cut and paste from many other movies).

SFX felt a bit botched occasionally.

How can such an uninspired director who hasn't made a decent movie in a long long time access this kind of budget is mind boggling.

Disappointing - Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets review by William London

Spoiler Alert
27/11/2017

I'm going to make an analogy. Do you remember how much people liked the original Star Wars trilogy? And do you remember why Star Wars Episode I was so disappointing? It's mostly because it was filled with far too much CGI, the story was not that interesting, some lead actors could not act at all, and there was a flawed main character. Now do you remember how much people liked Luc Besson's Fifth Element? Valerian is like Episode I. Worse in fact.

Valerian fails as a movie but succeeds as a promotional tool for Besson's CGI studio. But do you want to pay to watch a 2-hour ad?
