Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets REVIEWS

  • Good, not great

    July 20th, 2017

    The first thing I want to say about this movie is that the visuals are absolutely insane! It's really a joy to watch, the aliens are extremely well made and the first scene is just gorgeous! . The story is predictable, but can keep you interested for most of the time. The main problem was the way things are explained, it's like the movie think tha...

  • Hugely Enjoyable!

    July 21st, 2017

    Although I too enjoy super hero movies, action movies blah blah - they are getting tired. Good directors can get the pacing, directing and acting so right that the same-ol story can be told while still be entertaining. Especially in science fiction, it seems there are no original ideas any more.. Then comes along Valerian - WOW! What a refreshing ...

  • More fun than the last five Star Wars films

    July 20th, 2017

    What if the Star Wars prequels had been handed over to a better director? What if The Force Awakens and Rogue One had aimed at being original and fun science fantasy films rather than just playing on people's nostalgia?. This is what I found myself seeing as I was watching Valerian. A film that made Space Opera's fun and exciting again.. I was sur...

  • How poor is love that counts ...

    July 20th, 2017

    Watching 'Valerian and the City of Thousand Planets' I was reminded what makes Science Fiction so enjoyable. It's not the space fights, the cool alien life forms, the futuristic metropolis. It's that all these things remind us how infinite this space is, how tiny our existence, and how precious.. You probably have no idea what I am talking about. ...

  • Spectacular SciFi pulls no punches

    July 20th, 2017

    The first thing you'll observe about Luc Besson's Valerian is how gorgeous it looks, how much work went into the perfect realisation of this world. In a time where nearly every blockbuster features tons of CGI, Valerian stands out and highlights how cheaply the effects are done in most of the other ones.. Next, the sheer inventiveness of designers...

  • Uneven Story Telling is Boosted by Spectacular Visuals

    July 19th, 2017

    Adapted from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières long-running French sci-fi comics series Valérian And Laureline. Luc Besson creates a stunning visual feast. Besson's attention to detail is immaculate. And that along side the quirky dialog's between Laureline and Valerian are what keep this film afloat. I might be in the minority, but I pr...

  • Watch it - you won't get anything better this year

    July 20th, 2017

    The Hollywood line-up this year doesn't provide anything remotely interesting. So don't let a shaky story-line, unnecessary dialogue and slightly hammy acting dissuade you from watching the most stunning visuals since "Avatar".. Based on 60s French cult comic series "Valerian & Laureline" - mystery to me why didn't they keep that title -, the magn...

  • Visually stimulating, but it limps along with its script

    July 22nd, 2017

    Luc Besson's The Fifth Element has gained a cult following due to its weird story and out there set designs. Now Besson is tackling another wacky space opera type movie with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets which is a graphic novel that was an inspiration for Star Wars. Now we did have a similar scenario with John Carter as an inspirati...

  • A film who's creator knows no bounds of imagination

    July 20th, 2017

    David Bowie introduces the first five minutes of Valerian, and perhaps its fitting we should have the Starman himself lead us into a glimpse of what the future could hold for humans and all interstellar life.By the time Mr. Bowie completes his Space Oddity, we've learned that the titular City of a Thousand Planets is the international space statio...

  • Amazing movie in every way!

    July 24th, 2017

    Decided to ignore the lackluster critic reviews and saw Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets tonight at the movie theater. Bottom line......this movie is downright brilliant! It has a great, fast-paced plot, stunning visuals, and the acting is great! I can't even fathom why anyone would give this movie a bad review. Go see it...this is Sci-...
