QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A special operatives duo -- who are also romantic partners -- try to solve a dangerous mystery aboard a gargantuan space station filled with thousands of species of life forms.
PLOT:
It's the year 2740 and Major Valerian (DANE DeHAAN) and Sergeant Laureline (CARA DELEVINGNE) not only are work partners as intergalactic special operatives, but they're also romantically involved with each other. Their latest mission is to try to retrieve a Mül Converter -- a small creature that can replicate most anything given to it in mass quantity -- that's been stolen and is now located on a planet filled with hostile aliens. After succeeding at that, they travel to the gargantuan space station known as Alpha where thousands of life forms peacefully coexist.

They're assigned to work with Commander Arun Filitt (CLIVE OWEN) who's concerned about a mysterious energy force that's at the center of the space station and that seemingly can't be penetrated. During a meeting about just that, a small army of Mül beings -- the only survivors of their planet that was wiped out by a space war in which they were not involved -- kidnap Filitt. It's then up to Valerian and Laureline to rescue him, all of which leads to run-ins with aliens with an appetite for her, and Valerian needing help from Jolly the Pimp (ETHAN HAWKE) and his shape-shifting exotic dancer, Bubble (RIHANNA).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's possible some might be drawn in by the sci-fi elements or if they're fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sci-fi violence and action, suggestive material and brief language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
