Doubles down on visual grandeur to such a scale that despite how frustratingly flawed and occasionally downright abysmal the storytelling is, the summer blockbuster is one that absolutely needs to be seen on the big screen

The real attractions are Bresson's dizzying special effects, hosts of bizarre alien creatures and colorful worlds. Too bad the visuals weren't tethered to something more solid.

The visual sugar-high never killed anyone, and as far as escapist blockbusters go, Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets is as imaginative and spectacular as they come.

If the result is problematic, we need more people like Besson to push the envelope and refuse to adhere to the current sequelitis infesting the industry. The fact that he decided to take this risk should be acknowledged.

Thing is, every time I had to focus on the two main characters, the noticeable holes in all of this started to grow bigger and become more bothersome.

What trips it up more than questionable casting or even stunted dialogue is the epically confused narrative.

Though visually enticing, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is bogged down by a bloated script and poorly written characters.
