I just watched Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

And I have more questions than answers.

For example:

Rhianna was awesome, for reasons that have nothing to do with acting. The special effects people made her dance number awesome, and she was beautiful,vital, sexy, and charismatic... when the films leading actors were not.

I kind of liked that movie, but the miscast leads were so awful.

I was shocked at how terrible the movie was.

It was utterly ruined by the leads. When I first saw them in the first trailer, I just assumed they were brother and sister. To have the guy constantly sexually harassing the girl until they became a couple was beyond icky and gross. Ruined the whole movie.

There's a lot of great stuff, individual set pieces (Rhianna's dance/character in particular was a highlight, as was the 20 or so minutes at the beginning with almost zero dialog)... but the whole thing was just so ... bad.

And this is coming from someone who actually LIKED "Jupiter Ascending".

I cannot in good conscience recommend this movie.

I also can't help thinking it'd be so much better with literally ANYONE else in the two lead roles.

The movie looked way cool and had some original ideas...

But the two leads came across as a couple of drama club dorks from the local high school.

They came across as a snotty brother and sister which made the entire movie gross.
