Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

A highly entertaining hot mess of a movie, stuffed full of visual treats and a surfeit of bonkers ideas - I predict a reappraisal and midnight screenings within a decade. Its real problem are the two leads, who I don't doubt are fine dramatic actors, but who possess neither the charisma or chemistry to carry this kind of roaring tentpole.
