Verdict: A visual spectacle admist a space adventure. A human being's curiosity about the worlds amongst the stars knows no bounds. A great many stories have been told about the unknown breed of aliens that live among these stars and how we would interact with them if we do. In the year 1975, a small []... ...Read full review
A case could be made for a better lead pair lending to a better film. But Valerian sees Luc Besson playing with the latest CGI technology like a child in a toy store. The audience is left with ocular diabetes and hardly any savoury storytelling an essential ingredient that turned some of his films like La Femme Nikita & Lon: The Professional into cult classics. Nevertheless; the visual sugar-high never killed anyone, and as far as escapist blockbusters go, Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets is as imaginative and spectacular as they come. Just keep your mind switched off and put your 3D glasses on. ...Read full review
The plot stumbles along, but the movie`s sheer spectacle and chemistry of its cast (hats off to Daan for growing up so well and Clara for being able to act despite her beauty) and their badinage makes Valerian a necessary summer watch. ...Read full review
Apart from the two leads, played by DeHaan and Delevingne, the film doesn`t do any justice to any of its other actors.

All that`s left, really, is dazzling production design and 3D that admittedly serves the movie instead of substituting gimmicky murk for thrills. Is there a message that Besson is eager to get out? The man has a tin ear for dialogue, but he also has a vision, and someone has given him a $200 million budget to fulfill it. ...Read full review

Perhaps this could be Valerian and Laurelines next adventure. They wouldnt even have to leave Earth, and Dane DeHaan could probably be back home sipping Mai Tais by sundown. ...Read full review
Four years ago the problem with the Space Opera genre was that there werent enough movies in the genre. After the likes of John Carter, Guardians of the Galaxy and Jupiter Ascending the problem now is that theres been an oversaturation of the genre. No matter how big the visual effects become, the core of any film of the genre feels overtly familiar. ...Read full review
