A good movie

First of all, even though I have never been a huge fan of Steven Spielberg, his movies are always a big event so I was quite eager to check this movie, especially since it turned out to be quite successful at the box-office. Well, to be honest, I have to admit that I was actually quite positively surprised and, as far as I’m concerned, it was Spielberg’s most enjoyable movie in years. Indeed, the damned thing was visually really impressive and I wish I actually saw it in the movie theater when it was released (at least, I did see it on Blu-ray). I was also surprised that most of the movie was actually CGI animated  but, in this genre, it is easily one of the most satisfying movies I have seen so far. Furthermore, the story was quite entertaining and, while watching the damned thing,  I was thinking that ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ could have been also a box-office hit if Luc Besson didn’t write such a half-baked plot. On the downside, it’s too bad the whole thing was too long though. I mean, with 140 mins, it wasn’t exactly a very long movie but they could or should have removed 30 mins and the whole thing above all lost some steam during the 3rd act. Furthermore, even though the potential was pretty much limitless with this concept, they didn’t take much risks after all and, like pretty much everything else directed by Spielberg, it was too light-hearted and sentimental for my taste. Still, there were some really cool scenes and the whole 'Shining' sequence should go down as one of the best things ever delivered by this director. Anyway, to conclude, even though it was maybe not a masterpiece, it was still a really fun and gorgeous blockbuster and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre or if you are interested in Steven Spielberg’s work.
