New on DVD & Blu-ray for November 21, 2017 "The Hitman's Bodyguard" and "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets"

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Starring: Dane Dehaan and Cara Delevingne
Rated PG-13
 

A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

“Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is one of those films where the special effects and the CGI are so spectacular and grand but the plot suffers from a kind of lackluster disengagement with the audience.

It's the cinematic equivalent of getting a really beautifully wrapped present only to discover, after tearing into it, its just an old pair of shoes.

Director Luc Besson, who gave us the very witty and edgy “Fifth Element” missed the mark by not allowing the script to be fully developed.

In the final reel, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” is a big expensive and confusing mess that's beautiful to look at but impossible to really enjoy.

It gets a D and is rated PG-13.

The Hitman's Bodyguard
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds
Rated R

In the film an elite bodyguard gets a new client, a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice.

If I were to describe “The Hitman's Bodyguard” in a few words it would be that the “Jason Bourne” movies married “Deadpool” and had a baby!

The film is a non-stop reverse buddy picture with Jackson and Reynolds at each other's throats, all the while trying to just stay alive.

If your tastes run to an 'anything goes popcorn muncher, “The Hitman's Bodyguard” is it.

It's gets an B and is rated R.
