Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS. A fun, colourful, visually spectacular space opera. I really like this sci-fi universe. It's like THE FIFTH ELEMENT on steroids. Points for using David Bowie's "Space Oddity" in the opening sequence. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne are miscast as Major Valerian and Sergeant Laureline. They have no chemistry. When it's just the two of them on screen together, the movie is awful. They look like kids. Valerian comes across as a creep sexually harassing his coworker. The story is a bit of a mess, but it's an entertaining movie.
