A spectacular spectacle of a movie that faithfully adapts a French 1970s sci-fi comic book. If you think you might see it some day, you owe it to yourself to catch it in 3D on a big screen now. In a world of paint-by-numbers blockbusters, this is an invigorating slap to the eyeballs.
The flick would benefit from more focus and deliberation; often, story beats are glancing blows instead of precision hits. The biggest flaws, however, are found in the dialogue, which is at best serviceable and at times painful, probably owing to its transition through times, languages, and mediums.
Valerian isn’t perfect, it’s a bit clunky, but the sheer unusualness, whimsy, and wonder overpowers the movie’s faults, making it well worth watching.
Well, the scenes start comin’ and they don’t stop comin’. Aaaand that’s basically the whole movie.
No, honestly by the end of it I was actually pretty on board. It took me a lot to get to that point though. The ham-fisted romance subplot they kept awkwardly grinding the movie to a standstill for was chief amongst the swill I felt I had to wade through to get to that point of enjoyment. The primary alien race being the most poorly animated was another. But somewhere between the Rhianna actually being bearable in this, and the Ethan Hawke character I want to see 500 more times, I did actually somewhat enjoy _Valerian_… Somewhat.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Watch it – you won’t get anything better this year
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 magnificent opening sequence sets the tone for a more esoteric approach to Sci-Fi than “Star Wars”. I won’t let on about the story too much so as not to ruin any element of surprise. Let’s just say they really should have lost the romantic chitchat. It makes the film drag at inconvenient times. With real writers, this could have become a classic.
The draw is the eye candy and there’s plenty of it. Again I cannot in good conscience divulge any details. Again let’s just say that one gets treated to the most creative use of lemons in the history of film. I’ll have to watch it again to catch all the pop art references. Aliens were never more beautiful, more sophisticated, more varied. And while the Rihanna scene cannot compete with the opera scene in “5th Element”, it’s the best use of a performance act in film in years.
Alas, when one thinks “5th Element”, the main weaknesses of “Valerian” stands out clearly: mediocre acting and a terrible script. Bloodless DeHaan is the most dreadfully miscast lead since Tom Hiddleston in “Kong: Skull Island”. Why didn’t they cast the likes of Theo James with over $200 mil to burn? Cara Delevingne is cool but no Milla Jovovich – Besson loved Jovovich for real and the camera and editing really showed that. Delevingne’s Laureline comes across as a run-of-the-mill heroine even though she’s doing a solid job. Clive Owen cannot even remotely compare to Gary Oldman’s Hitleresque splendor. Strangely enough, the CGI aliens do the best acting and have all the memorable lines. Besson’s script-writing has always been shaky but seems to get progressively worse.
Still, compared to this year’s Hollywood fare of sequels, yet another superhero franchise and musicals with thespians who cannot sing, “Valerian” is infinitely more entertaining.
Hot Euro babe (super thin)
And the visuals and originality is off the charts, but the film drags on and there is no true editing here. The strip tease goes on for too long too.
