Movie review: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Rating: 7.5/10

3D admittedly serves Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets justice and it gives much more entertainment than just the thrills of the movie plot. The 3D experience at Imax Nairobi is everything to write home about!

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is screening in one of the best cinemas all over the country, Anga Imax Nairobi. The cinema experience at Imax gives you value for your money; the monumental curved screen and the Hi-Fi sound system does not let the movie experience at Imax be anything short of a lifetime fate.

The movie is set in the future, the 28th century. Laureline (Cara Delevingne) and Valerian (Dane DeHaan) are special operatives under the Ministry of Defence maintaining order throughout the human territories in the universe. While on a mission to the city of Alpha, the City of a Thousand Planets of the title, some dark force threatens to disrupt the peaceful life of Alpha and they are charged with the responsibility to safeguard it, as well as the future of the universe.

The movie thrills from start to end with a number of lows here and there that might leave you teary. Rihanna’s role as a pole dancer is also a climax that you definitely want to look forward to.

Thumbs up:

The two lead characters, DeHaan and Delevingne are so good for the particular roles they play and I think the perfectness of the entire movie is owed to them. They are young, charming and attractive and the chemistry between them is just marvellous.

Waah! If that was Rihanna pole dancing all through, then she is indeed a polestar!

Thumbs down:

The diction of the movie is somewhat complex and as a result one ends up lost from time to time when following the action.

Why is the movie making humans look so bad? I mean, the universe seems so peaceful without us
