Gah.... I'm so torn. On one hand, I typically love Besson's vision, but something that really is putting a damper on things for me, and clearly it's my bias, is the future worlds will be saved by very young people.

admittedly I associate age/maturity to experience, skill and strength. I just have a hard time with newborns saving the universe. it just makes more sense to me to visualize older people working the problem.

I know, since Star Wars to Enders Game and the Independence Day sequel, we are given the story line of the young having the advantage. Star Wars does make sense and I kind of get Ender's Game, but Independence Day was complete crap because of the young storyline. The studio's have gone completely full bore with the millennial generation represented in output of movies today. And from what I'm hearing, they are not the ones going to the theaters and possibly not bothering with movies (DVD, streaming) all together.

I'm not going to crap on Valerian. I need to see it. I hope it holds up for me like the good movies I mentioned before.
