So this was done by the same person who directed “The Fifth Element.” The world seemed similar to the society he created in that film and I found many similarities. The plot was good, its a nice little adventure that keeps your attention.
Where the movie failed to live up to success of “The Fifth Element” was the casting. There was no Bruce Willis, Chris Tucker, or Gary Oldman, and those guys made “The Fifth Element” what it was. The actors in “Valerian” had no chemistry with each other. They were mostly emotionless robots, and the romance was just unbelievable. The aliens had more acting ability.
If you want to see some action and great special effects, this is a good film to see. But the acting is horrible.
