Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (Sidenote: Rock Dog)


If you want to hear more of my review on this film, subscribe to RealMovieCritic on YouTube:

Valerian had some amazing special effects, and a somewhat good story, however, the acting between Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne were eye rolling awful!!!

Rating: 3.5 Stars

What I Like:

-The special effects were amazing eye candy for anyone to enjoy, (check it in 3D to give it a chance), which created some fun action and beautiful scenery
-That scene introducing Rihanna as Bubble was pretty fun to watch

The So So:

-The story was somewhat decent, I enjoyed seeing the politics of the universe in the future, and how they work together in peace, but there is always that one typical person to create havoc, I liked it that it is about covering your tracks, but I wish the execution was a lot better in that regard

What I Didn’t Like:

-With the great special effects and all, that wouldn’t save the horrible acting between the two main characters, Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as Valerian and Laureline, they really had no ounce of chemistry whatsoever, and it was just eye rolling awful for me and really did affect this film


Amazing special effects and action, a somewhat decent story, but terrible acting, you get a decent movie at best. Just do yourself a favor if you’re giving a chance to watch it, watch it in 3D to really experience the top notch special effects!!!

Rating: 3.5 Stars


(Sidenote: Rock Dog- I didn’t know what to expect from the movie, but I actually ended up quite enjoying it. It was paced well, with decent animation, good voice casting, and some funny humor. Yes, the story may be typical and cliched, but it is good enough for the whole family to watch. I also enjoyed the song at the end!!!
