Description

Luc Besson writes and directs this French action sci-fi based on Pierre Christin's sci-fi comic series 'Valérian and Laureline'. Tasked with maintaining peace throughout the universe, special government operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are sent by their commander Arün Filitt (Clive Owen) to the spectacular city of Alpha, an ever-expanding metropolis home to millions of inhabitants from all over the galaxy. With an unseen villainous force causing an uprising which could put the future of the city in danger, Valerian and Laureline must put their personal issues to one side and work together to put a stop to the trouble before it's too late. The cast also includes Ethan Hawke, Rutger Hauer and Rihanna.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[T]here isn’t a moment in this ludicrous, lushly self-indulgent movie that doesn’t feel like its creator is having the time of his life." -- Grade: B-
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (14 Jul 2017, )
Boston Globe
"In short, Besson builds a dazzling alterna-universe -- a bit of Terry Gilliam, a dash of BLADER RUNNER, a smidgen of STAR WARS, and a lot of extra-strength Besson-ian whimsy."
Ty Burr (20 Jul 2017, )
Los Angeles Times
"Besson zips across decades and centuries to show how various far-flung civilizations glommed on to the International Space Station, ultimately forming Alpha, a floating megalopolis and a gloriously utopian vision of interspecies coexistence."
Justin Chang (20 Jul 2017, )
RogerEbert.com
4 stars out of 4 -- "It's a film filled with humor, charm, excitement and so many memorable images that many viewers will find themselves struggling to keep from blinking so as not to miss any of the eye-popping delights crammed into each overstuffed frame."
Peter Sobczynski (21 Jul 2017, )
The Guardian
3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat ambition. Besson goes one better than the sprawling technotropolis he imagined for THE FIFTH ELEMENT."
Wendy Ide (6 Aug 2017, )
