Valerian: A Beautiful Mess is Still a Mess
Visually spectacular but dramatically incoherent, Valerian commits one of the worst cinematic sins: a story so convoluted that the film, filled with striking imagery, grows boring for long stretches of time. When you're not staring at the beautiful, otherworldly compositions, expect instead to be staring at your watch. 2.5 out of 5.
