Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is the newest movie from famed director Luc Besson and the reviews for the movie so far are generally positive.

This bodes well for the movie coming out in North America next week since it faces a lot of competition at the Box Office this July.

As of time of writing, 29 reviews are fresh for the film while only 12 of them are rotten. The critical consensus can be seen below.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets uses sheer kinetic energy and visual thrills to overcome narrative obstacles and offer a viewing experience whose surreal pleasures often outweigh its flaws.

The movie is released in North America on July 21st which is the same date that Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is out.

This might be kind of hard for Valerian to stand out despite the positive reception it has been receiving from critics so far.

Not to mention the likes of War for the Planet of the Apes and Spider-Man: Homecoming are still out in cinemas.

Hopefully the movie can find an audience as Hollywood needs to have more original movies. It might have a cult following if fans are warm to it the same way critics are.

The visuals look like the best thing that this movie offers. You have to admit there aren't that many movies out there these days that look as creative as this film.
