Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,
like Avatar, makes it on the captivating, outstanding makeup department's efforts and the background scenery of their environment. It’s the best in the business. The movie tries to say a great deal; however, rather than casting humanoids, it seems casting another type of alien would have effectively propelled the story forward so the story could have reached the full potential that the script’s depth of writing offers. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne appear to be just repeating the dialogue without feeling the importance of their assigned lines. The white aliens understand their portion of the script and act it with good precision. The story, well written, has potential to be one of the better films on the market when it is remade with a few changes in casting. For now, Planet Mül can enthrall audiences
