Besson clearly has a lot of love for this material, but maybe also a bit TOO much love, to where he's blinded from some of the weaker elements. For instance, DeHaan does not make a good lead, the dialogue is often asinine, and this isn't exactly the best plot for a big blockbuster film. The intro and first appearance of the extra-dimensional market were cool, but otherwise even the visuals and effects were profoundly generic.

The opening montage is the best part of this film. Not to say the rest of the experience was terrible. In the end it was the abysmal acting by the male and female lead. Lack of chemistry and terrible dialogue ruined an otherwise good experience.

The opening 20 minutes are by far Valerians best - partly due to some interesting world building, but primarily because no one really says anything! The remaining 2 hours are blighted by Bessons distractingly terrible screenplay. Oddly undramatic, visually interesting in parts, with some cool concepts, although too chocked full with half-baked ideas, it’s also sloppily edited with clear lines referring to stuff that must have been cut. DeHann was a horrible piece of casting also.

A Luc Besson sci-fi flick, with all the hallmarks and hang-ups that entails. Dumb plot, smart quips and breathless, smoothly choreographed action sequences with rich, dynamic visuals. In the final third, the fluffy sci-fi gives way to trite political grandstanding. Rihanna appears in a male-gazy fan-service interlude only to decry her oppression moments later. That Laureline is excised from the title despite her greater badassery and empathy, largely sums up Besson's wishy-washy social ethics.

Besson's new adventure - easily his best since 'The Fifth Element' - delivers in spades in two of the most important areas for a sci-fi blockbuster: action and worldbuilding. So it's quite tragic, really, that Dane Dehaan (and the writing of his interactions with Cara "I'm actually physically unable to smile" Delevingne) comes extremely close to ruining everything. A charismatic hero could (and should!) have made this an almost peerless classic in its genre.

There are a lot of great and interesting ideas in this movie, and it’s all realised quite beautifully, but man, this film is a mess. It started off quite interestingly, but as soon as we were introduced to our two main characters, it fell apart for me. They’re fine actors, but DeHaan and Delevingne are absolutely miscast. It doesn’t help that their characters are bland and annoying and cliché either. Truly horrible dialogue at points.

If one can stomach a familiar "love conquers all" morale and its telling in borderline abysmal script and performance, the hooks are found in world building and outlandish visual imagination. Its otherness may be only skin deep, but for what it is, and in comparison to most other ultra-digitized hero adventures, I like this. The resemblance to Mass Effect must be noted.

Pretty and innovative, but the writing is so bad. Dialogue is almost all rote, the energy dies in the expository scenes and the characters are universally terrible - from the sneering evil villain to Rihanna whose character arc is one of the worst ever in a film (no one cares about what happens to her) to the protagonists who have no personality and whose romance is horribly forced. None of this is helped by DeHaan's incredibly wooden acting.

There is a lot to like here: the old-timey serial reveal of the plot, the production design, the fairly adept world-building. But the primary characters and the script are crushed under the weight of the dumpster fire that is Besson burning through his budget. I could visualize early-90's Bruce Willis and Sharon Stone keeping an integrity about this project, but these leads seem horribly misguided. Even Rihanna comes off like a gender-bending Snarf.

It should be rated lower than this, honestly, but the visuals and the world-building are a lot of fun. With such a promising backdrop, it's more disappointing that the rest is so awful. The plot is ridiculous, with meaningless side-plots and a cliched heavy-handed PC message. Even still, the movie could have been enjoyable if the two leads weren't insufferably arrogant, snotty teenagers pretending as ranking military agents. Crap, this is all the room I have?

The leads are terrible and have no chemistry, to the point that I was surprised when they start making out at the end. Visuals were good but just made me think the whole thing would have worked better as a minimally-plotted extended chase sequence like Redline or the original Aeon Flux cartoon. p.s. Besson is a hack who hasn't made a good film in 20 years

There is some good stuff, including gorgeous visuals, an interesting world, and a surprisingly good Delevingne. The action sequence that takes places with an extra dimension is also really unique. But the story is completely uninteresting and DeHaan's character was particularly annoying.

Lead characters lack any charisma, which may have been acceptable if movie didn't hinge on their relationship. Clive Owen isn't very engaging. Ethan Hawke and Rhianna have the most life to them but their whole sequence should have been left out (maybe they should have been the main characters instead?). Occasional moments of Fifth Element style oddball characters and scenes isn't enough to redeem this.

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.

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.
