Runtime: 137 Minutes
Director: Luc Besson
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
My Rating: 7/10
What a visually stunning movie. The story revolves around special agents Valerian(Dane DeHaan) and Laureline(Cara Delevingne) who are sent to Alpha, a space station that over centuries has grown and expanded with different races from all over the universe, to find out the cause of a mysterious presence at its center that threatens the lives of not just the people on Alpha but the entire universe.
I was lucky enough to watch this movie in 3D and I’m so glad I did. To call it anything less than visual masterpiece would be an injustice. Luc Besson has brought to life not just the story of this film but an entire universe. Every little detail is included.
The plot was a little bit slow in some parts but that just gave you more time to enjoy the visuals. I felt it could have run a little bit shorter but in the end I didn’t mind.
A notable performance for me was a character called Bubbles(Rihanna) a shape shifting dancer. Rihanna did a good job of playing her.
Overall I really enjoyed this movie and will definitely watch it again.
