Movie Review: Valerian & The City Of A Thousand Planets Is Full Of Adventures

In the 28th century, special operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline work together to maintain order throughout the human territories. The duo brought on board, a French comic book series created by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres that is celebrated, especially among European comic book lovers.
The film centers on Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne), a pair of special operatives fighting crime throughout the universe. As the story begins, the two are sent off to Big Market, a virtual-reality bazaar whose hordes of vendors can only be seen and approached after donning special equipment, to confiscate an ultra-rare and powerful Mül Converter, an adorable creature capable of reproducing anything that it eats. The cocky Valerian soon finds himself being pursued by number of creatures while the far more cool and collected Laureline is charged with saving his bacon, presumably not for the first time.Due to a technological malfunction, Valerian is trapped between two different levels of reality with most of his body in the real world while his arm is stuck in the virtual universe. “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is an utter delight and one of the most gorgeous fantasies to hit the screen in recent memory. It is the kind of film that can leave moviegoers excited at the same time in suspense.If you want to come away from a film feeling dazzled instead of simply dazed, this is an absolute must.
