John Connor [Celluloid 06.29.17] scifi action adventure 3-d

Critics have seen Luc Besson's Valerian and have taken to Twitter to express their feelings on the largest film the French director has produced in his career.

The science fiction Space Opera is based on a famous French comic series. The series was also an influence on George Lucas when he created Star Wars.

Besson has wanted to adapt Valerian for his whole life but like James Cameron he had to wait until the technology existed to do his vision justice. From what critics are saying, the wait was worth it.

Here's what critics are saying about Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets:

The first half of #Valerian is visually stunning, gleefully inventive, unpredictable and bonkers insane….

Each sequence is filled w/ creatures & concepts you’ve never seen before. #Valerian's 2nd half becomes more formulaic, far less exciting…

#Valerian is the batsh*t kinda sci-fi, stuffed w/ wildly colorful & inventive sequences. Story is OK but some of the action blew my mind ????

Now that the embargo is lifted I am free to say that VALERIAN surpassed all expectations. The best blockbuster of the summer.

Dug opening sequence of #Valerian, has amazing 3D look. Flavor of FIFTH ELEMENT but not the same payoff. Luc Besson fans are gonna luv it.
- Jason Guerraso

#VALERIAN is one of the most bracing, vivacious, alive sci-fi films in years, and may be one of the most electrically gorgeous ever.

- Witney Seibold

It's a smash!

The film stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne along with Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke and many others.

Valerian opens this summer, July 21.
