Nevermind what the cities say about this film. go and see it !
Yes, it's definitely worth seeing -- just don't agonize over the plot and the dialogue.
But a really bad sign: it's already gone from most of the theaters around here -- that must mean something...
I plan to buy it dvd, Like it that much. They did Valerian anima series a fe years ago.
Four months down the road, it'll be cheap.
I wish it had been a hit, I would have like to seen their further adventures.
I think a big part of Valerian feeling off is the absolute lack of chemistry between their MCs. The story starts when they've already been working together for a while, and it drops the viewer halfway into their badly written, saggy "romance", which never clicks. Most of their personal history has happened offscreen, and it is never re-addressed in order to build rapport between them and give the MCs a reason to actually care for each other. That's what felt the most "off" to me, now that I can finally put a finger on it.
But then, I said that about John Carter of Mars...
C'mon guys don't be character-ist. That's not nice.
I liked John Carpenter of Mars too - actually I may watch that later!
It's a classic.
I've been trying to decide whether you guys are saying "Carpenter" on purpose... I give up; I don't know.
Is it as bad as Lucy?
I still want to see it. It looks like might be fun.
Lucy is worlds better.
Lucy is a better movie, but Valerian is colorful -- the kind of movie you might want to see a second time because you think there was so much going on in some shots that you might have missed something...
I saw Lucy , didn't care for it.
Agreed, Lucy was an awful movie.
I might try and see this at the weekend.
If it ever comes to Stornoway I want to see Valerian, but I'm not holding my breath - had to wait six weeks for Star Wars VII to come here, and Dunkirk arrives at the end of this month.
If you have to make a choice, skip Dunkirk and go to Valerian.
I saw it in 3D. Lovely ride, and a nice bit of nostalgia for me. I used to love the comics, so I knew what to expect. Also I read this thread so I went in with low expectations. All that considered, it was fine. I didn't cringe, and I liked the rather simple message.
3D makes big panoramas look like tiny models to me. Anyone else get that?
*puzzled* Who are you again?
