If you enjoyed Fifth Element, you will like Valerian as well. It's highly imaginative, action packed and funny. Rihanna surprisingly has her best role as a shape shifting alien entertainer named Bubbles. I strongly recommend this film. Definitely in IMAX 3-D.
Some top critics even threw the film * and *1/2 but I agree with the **** review at Roger Ebert.com.
50 years after their first adventure launched in comic strip form, spatio-temporal agents Valérian and Laureline finally hit the big screen. In their debut cinematic story, the pair uncovers a sinister plot to take genocide to a new level by wiping all knowledge of a peaceful civilization from galactic history.
What did I think?
Strangely this reminds me of the original Star Wars and the prequel trilogies at the same time. Like the 1977 classic, you are thrown headfirst into a dirty universe, with no back stories to guide you. It’s an assault on your imagination and a welcome one. Valerian’s universe is spectacular.
Contrariwise, like the flawed prequels, you have to use your imagination to get over the unforgivable plot holes, bordering-on-the-offensive character inconsistencies, and the atrocious miscasting of Dane DeHaan as the (supposedly) womanizing tactical genius Valerian.
It’s still good enough to get four stars. Imagine how good it would have been with the appropriate swagger.
So unlike the haters, I choose to focus on the things this film did well. Like the spectacular visuals and the fun little details.
