saw: valerian

Comparable in its $200 million stillbirth to Jupiter Ascending, although the former at least had likable leads in Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne are uncharismatic duds, delivering their lines with a sullen after-school stiffness that rivals Hayden Christensen in the Star Wars prequels. And unlike Jupiter Ascending, Valerian had copious source material to draw from during its development, making the success of the similarly conceived Guardians of the Galaxy all the more noteworthy. Grade: C
