When I first saw the trailer for this, and being a huge fan of the (Vastly superior) Fifth Element, as well as Leon the Professional, I could hardly wait to see it. What a mistake! I should have waited. A terrible story cannot be supported by great visuals. This was one boring, almost unfollowable story. The leads are pretty, but the inane dialogue waste's them totally. The entire SciFi part is wrapped around a basically horny Valerian wanting to settle down with his fellow agent. The opening, about the building of station Alpha is the best part. The rest of the film goes downhill from there. Just a really huge mistake. After Luc's near miss with Lucy, (good until the end), I was hoping that he would rebound with this, but this is just a huge, dull (I nearly fell asleep during it) mess of a movie. So sad, since there was some serious potential here.

An Utter disappointmentReviewed byGeorge TaylorVote: 1/10
Although I too enjoy super hero movies, action movies blah blah - theyare getting tired. Good directors can get the pacing, directing andacting so right that the same-ol story can be told while still beentertaining. Especially in science fiction, it seems there are nooriginal ideas any more.
Then comes along Valerian - WOW! What a refreshing and imaginativeworld they've developed and an exciting movie they've created! Thetrailers truly do not do this movie justice. I watched this movie justfor Luc Besson, because the trailer made the movie look like the usualHollywood drivel. What I got instead was an extremely pleasing andoriginal story that was superbly executed.
What I love about the movie is that the plot isn't your typical sci-fiplot. It plays like a detective story intermingled with action andamazing visuals, culminating in a very satisfying ending that made meyearn for sequels to learn more about the universe Besson has created.
Well done! This movie deserves to live on! Watch it in the theaters andbe thrilled!
Adapted from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières long-runningFrench sci-fi comics series Valérian And Laureline. Luc Besson createsa stunning visual feast. Besson's attention to detail is immaculate.And that along side the quirky dialog's between Laureline and Valerianare what keep this film afloat. I might be in the minority, but Iprefer my films to be lengthy. However in this case, Valerian feelsoverstuffed trying to add more depth to the story at every turn. Thisfilm might have benefited from a shorter run time. The biggest surprisewas Laureline(Delevingne), her character is what kept my interestthroughout the film and her acting was actually on point. As someonewho was skeptical about her casting, I'm glad to be proved wrong. Notsaying it's her breakout performance, Just saying she's improving andperhaps she might have a future as an actress. Everyone deserves asecond chance.
