Plot Outline:

Valerian and Laureline are special agents of the human species, whose main goal is to maintain harmony and order across the universe.

It's one of the most beautifully filmed science fiction movies I've ever seen and probably ever made. Too bad it's often nonsensical and doesn't seem content to tell just one single story. Fifth Element this ain't. Still, it does have a tremendous sense of fun with its stupidity.

After watching “Valerian and the City of a thousand planets” I can imagine how someone sees his surroundings while being under the influence of psychedelics. This SF-opera based on a comic is a cacophony of surrealistic and grotesque images from an immeasurable universe where all sorts of extraterrestrials make their appearance. Believe me, it really didn’t take long before I realized I no longer knew what it was about. The only thing left for me was to lay down in my cozy couch and marvel at the spectacle Luc Besson fabricated.

A Delight to the Senses

If Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets taught me anything, it is that Luc Besson is not afraid to take chances, and that he continues to be one of the most creative directors today. Billed as the most expensive independent film, and based on a French comic, Valerian follows a pair of intergalactic super agents (titular character Valerian and his female better half Laureline) as they attempt to save Alpha (also known as the City of a Thousand Planets) from a dark force that threatens the millions of species, and all their accumulated knowledge.

I love this opening to this film. Set to the late David Bowie's "Space Oddity" we see humanity go from 1975 to the International Space Station in our near future - as at first representatives from different countries (including ...
