Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (Sci-Fi Action 2017)

I remember when this movie first came out. It had an interesting trailer with some nice visual shots so it seemed to have some potential. So did it live up to that initial impression? As Ducky would say, "Nope nope nope."

Although the movie did have this campy Fifth Element feel to it, it certainly wasn't up to that caliber because it didn't have Milla in it....and because it generally sucked. The animation of many of the characters was clumsy and way past any baseline CG. It was actually terrible considering that it was made in 2017. I've seen regular video games half a decade old have better computer animation.

The characters were hella forgetful and the main guy was a friggin' annoying-ass turd who reminded me of this lame Millennial generation of turd kids. The story was blah and I think the bad acting and crappy animation made it seem like a 3rd rate film school project. Totally not worth the time to watch.
