07.21.17         movie reviews  

Valerian


It started off really strong (the first 5-10 minutes). Incredible visuals. I hate to say this, I had more empathy for the CGI pearl creatures than I did the humans who were shot in incredibly unflattering light. The chemistry and dialogue between them from the start was absolutely painful. I found myself asking myself over and over "Is there really nothing more to these lines?".

It dragged out far longer than it should. Halfway through the film, I found myself fighting the urge to leave with every fiber of my being. It was painful.

Id definitely say skip this in theaters, and probably as a rental unless you are super super bored.

There was some absolutely real talent involved in making this movie. Seriously. Unfortunately, it was bad where it mattered most, character development, plot, editing, quality of acting, you know those kinds of things.
