There's so much to love about this intergalactic space opera - it bursts at the seams with original ideas and visuals (that jellyfish!), some rollicking good fun in the second half, add a trio of bickering pigeon-esque aliens and Rihanna in a stand-out performance, but, oh, oh dear, Dane DeHaan. I don't really blame him, that has to laid at Besson's feet. Under his direction DeHaan is one of the limpest heroes ever to have helmed such a bombastic, magnificent-looking movie. Delevingne does her best but the chemistry just isn't there. In fact, when DeHaan disappears for a good ten minutes of the movie, she takes the lead and the movie starts to soar. Perhaps Laureline and the City of a Thousand Planets would have been a better bet. And without Besson's dodgy dialogue. And the wooden Kris Wu. Still, this is well worth a watch just for the sheer fun that drips from it.
