A big, confounding misfire like VALERIAN may not deserve adulation, but it certainly deserves respect. Luc Besson's weird little space opera does not have a coherent plot, or consistent visual effects, or any kind of chemistry between its leads. However, it does have the type of total commitment to risky, harebrained ideas that is sorely lacking in today's blockbusters. Maybe that's not enough to recommend it, but the curiosity of experienced schlock-lovers will be modestly rewarded.

One of the more inventive and visually appealing sci-fi films in recent years, the plot holes and problematic moments kept Valerian from working for me. On the bright side, former model Cara Delevingne seemed like an absolute natural among a few industry vets. And it is oddly memorable.

Besson's repertoire is littered with critically panned sci-fi and action movies, with a couple gems sprinkled in. But they guy has always known what I like, and this one fits like a glove. From the Bowie song and montage at the beginning, straight through the excellently developed, but only perfunctorily divulged universe I was hooked. He left so much room for sequels and the titular city had stories galore that could be in it, just waiting to be tapped by a continued series.

With this one, Besson stepped up to the plate and pointed to the centre field bleachers. In came the pitch ... Besson swung and connected. I was enthralled as the ball soared through the air only to see the centre fielder leap and catch the ball. If you don't like baseball, this is a glorious effort that I really appreciated despite it's obvious failings. A really strong first half hour, and such a wonderful sci fi universe discovered with each passing scene. I'd love to see a sequel.

It's not terrible but it probably isn't worth your time. It felt like it was trying to be another "Fifth Element" type film but it lacks the charm, the humour and the star power. Overloaded with CGI which, to be fair, looks great but it just becomes too much. I was well and truly on the Dane DeHaan bandwagon but I think it's time to jump off. Cara Delevingne is okay but they don't really work together.

The plot was simple but enjoyable. The dialogue weren't bad and i loved Laureline. I didn't want a serious movie, just an adventure like Stars wars, hellboy, indiana jones…something fun.

Everyone said this movie sucks. Everyone said it was a waste of time. But it turns out Valerian and Laureline is precisely my shit. Crazy characters. Nonsense aliens. Weird (but surprisingly complex) plot. It's basically Star Wars if it had a better sense of humour about itself.

If this is any indication, there's nothing inherently wrong w/ "too much" CGI. The CGI screenscapes here are spectacular & they're so aesthetically pleasing it's hard to tire of them. Besson's no slouch in delivering action either. The big problem here is that the protagonists are stock characters w/ no arc (despite the pretense of a love story, they don't really change) & its all This happens, then this, etc. This is no doubt an accurate reflection of an old comic strip, but a film needs more.

Like many of Besson's films, it has a cartoony childlike feel to it. it's got some original neat visuals but the loose story and lack of appealing leads (the guy sounds like he is doing a young Keanu impression) drag it down to simply a fairly enjoyable timekiller.

Watch: Feel free to skip this. 3D is terribly done. | I really want to like this. The universe this builds is rich with characters, technology, and possibilities but the story being told is not enjoyable to follow at all. We left the theater near the end and honestly didn't care much--even after we watched the ending at home later. It truly feels like he's trying to hit another 5th Element and this is almost there! I really just wish the characters were likable and the story was any good.

A fairly standard sci-fi plot set in a hugely imaginative and visually arresting world, let down by some atrocious casting. DeHaan and Delevingne's chemistry is non-existent and their romance rivals the Star Wars prequels in its awfulness. When not romancing, Delevingne proves that supermodels can act and she delivers a charismatic and funny performance that carries much of the movie. DeHaan is consistently awful throughout. I'm a sucker for Besson so I still like this despite its many flaws.

Bickering workmates struggle to turn flirtation into romance, culminating in one of them making a speech claiming that love has the power to overcome genocide. Despite the obvious effort to paint a phantasmagorical world, many of the images and designs seem rather familiar, as if the technical power of digital tools functions to thwart imagination rather than enhance it. The most serious flaws, however, lie in the weak screenplay and a cast lacking charisma sufficient to sell the poor dialogue.

Universe created is delightful as expected from Besson, but the movie just lacks something to latch on to. Even though I enjoyed myself, there was literally zero character development, and not much to count as a story. Just things popping up as needed. This might have been a much better tv series.

An ambitious movie in the extreme. It is beautiful but overloaded with computer graphics that sometimes reeks of artistic immaturity. Inspired and creative art direction that frequently fails to satisfy. The young actors are beautiful but their performances seem to be constrained by the same forces that ruined the CGI. A tremendous effort that fails to equal the sum of its hundreds of excellent pieces. I'm going to watch this again, which in itself, is a huge vote for this movie.

Awful. Leads are without chemistry and romance seems like emotional rape. As story goes, it is way too stretched and badly presented. Only real plus are visuals. Sheer variety and uniqueness of aliens is astonishing. But it serves more like demo reel what one with colorful imagination can do with CGI.

Oh well, the good outweighs the bad. The main characters were basically teenagers, with unlikely high ranks more capable than older military personnel. The dialogues of the human participants were weird and unnecessary for the most parts. Way too much time on Rihanna and "her" dancing skills. The main character is just horrendous. But... some really awesome alien species, great story line, a bit of neatly served social commentary on refuges, genocide, pride... and of course fantastic visuals.

Besson's imagination and ballsiness are something I want to see more of in Hollywood blockbusters (I love "Lucy", sue me), and the colourful weirdness in this movie's world is its biggest strength, but this just doesn't gel very well. The plot isn't that interesting in the first place but the biggest problem is the casting; you need charismatic leads to ease you into this wild galaxy but DeHaan and Delevingne (who fares the better of the two, admittedly) don't have any chemistry at all.

With leads this miscast and/or unlikeable, all the CGI colors in the world can't turn this into something worthwhile. The opening minutes really drew me in, but then some vague plot-like thing starts (...Oh, I've been told it was the actual plot) and it's all downhill from there. Much like me, it's pretty damn gorgeous but kind of boring and aimless.

A smorgasbord of delights for those into space opera. The story and characters are rote and it's on the silly side but strikes just the right tone. Its visuals are extravagant but never overwhelming, disorganized, or gaudy. Faintly racist and/or sexist at points...
