On a purely visual level, "Valerian" is a top contender, but as a complete motion picture experience, it falls considerably short.
Exactly what the average movie-goer would expect from something with this title and these actors and, judged on that basis, it rarely misfires.
Every aspect of the production was selected with the goal of keeping the audience in a state of escalating suspense.
Brash, energetic, and exhilarating, any points it loses because of a lack of originality are gained back as a result of Theron’s dedication.
Weird without being off-putting and offers a different kind of experience than most films.
The narrative effectively marries the character based-aspects with the mystery-thriller ones.
The adventure/survival aspectsare presented with workmanlike efficiency but the secondary story elements are at times cringe-worthy.
"Cars 3" has saved the best for last and will deflect the concerns of those who think this series has taken too many extra laps.
