Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

It's a different style of movie from Dunkirk. Visual effect is the key and the story is reasonably fine. The major drawback is too early to let the audience know who the antagonist is. Another is the lead actor. He is young but seems alcoholic.

Even airtime of Rihanna is short, the role she plays really fits her. And what unexpected is Cara Delevingne. Of course the director can choose another model for those "model" scenes, she handles the remaining part well.

The movie is based on French Comic, directed by a French director & supported by French capital, but the lead actor said he doesn't know French. And nearly all main casts are from UK. That is so ironic. There are few scenes showing Chinese things due to Chinese support but the last spaceship is so alike Apollo Command/Service Module.
