Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Action Adventure Fantasy


 

Special agents Valerian and Laureline must get to the bottom of a mysterious force threatening to take over a space station housing residents from a thousand different planets.

"Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" is as long-winded as its unfortunate title suggests. The film tries valiantly to distract you from its predictable storyline with brightly coloured visuals, but there's very little left to redeem this stale production. Regrettable casting choices burden us with lacklustre leading characters who have about as much chemistry as a wet sock, and as a bonus, odd story tangents that make little to no sense. No pearls of wisdom here.
