Valerian and the city of a thousand planets

Recommended Posts

the source material (a french comic book from the late '60s to 2010) was great and influenced many sci-fi films, including besson's fith element.

the stories have been translated into english and are worth seeking out.

 

the teaser that came out last year is famous for being the first film trailer to feature a beatles song

... and spawned that great French scene where graphic novels were for adults, and gave us Metal Hurlant, Druillet, Moebius, Giger and others

I've really been looking forward to this release.

It's so refreshing to have something other than the usual dark and dystopian look of most SciFi movies, like the most recent Star Wars and Stark trek movies.

I hope it's a massive hit, and causes a change in the look of movies that are in the planning stages now.

 Being a Luc Beeson movie , it will look sumptuous, fry your brain and make no sense whatsoever:(

Saw at the cinema. Looks amazing, sounds amazing but The Fifth Element it is not. That said it was not too bad. I  enjoyed it.

[EDIT] Yes I was correct.

I have the 3D version with standard 2D Bluray, but I had to import that, the 3D version hasn't been made available in Aus

Yeah - seen  that one and a bit exy (even with 20% off and 2 for 1) but I want the UHD + BD so hoping we get this one sometime:

the only thing that let it down and it was in a major way was the the two main actors. They did not covey any sort of threat or urgency. By watching the film you would think they where at the park walking the dog.

To cast two children as experienced warriors is so un-relatable as well.

Not to mention watching two children flirting with each other all the time is really off putting.

 

Bad casting IMO

 

Great movie otherwise

The 'children' in question were 30 and 23 years old at the time of filming, so not really that disgusting, but yes, they do seem young to old eyes.

 

In real war, our 'warriors' are usually younger than this.

 

Cheers,

Jason.
