When even most of the good spectacles carry a strong whiff of prepackaging, try taking in the air of Luc Besson's sci-fi extravaganza "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets".Watching "Valerian" is to simultaneously and acutely realize what's missing from so many other big films (visual inventiveness, freewheeling unpredictability) and appreciate what the more controlled studio project does so much better (precision pacing, half-decent writing).Adapted by Besson from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres' comic book series, "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" is just your average Dane DeHaan movie with extraterrestrial ducks, a pole-dancing Rihanna and a prominent cameo from Herbie Hancock – on hand, presumably, to channel the cosmic spirit of his album covers.
