Scene-Stealers: Bubble

Scene-Stealers: Bubble

There is a simple and obvious truth in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017); Bubble (Rihanna)… is… magnificent.

While casting a music icon may overshadow a certain film such as Selena Gomez voicing Mavis from Hotel Transylvania (2012) and Miley Cyrus voicing Mainframe at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Rihanna cast as Bubble is a complete exception.

Even though she appears in three consecutive scenes in the film, she is a well-written background character for a science fiction film like Darth Maul from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999).

Bubble is a blue-colored liquid shapeshifter who can transform into anything. Her most notable form (and voice) is one of the most important singers of the 21st century: Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Rihanna actually did a great job as Bubble with her tongue-in cheek sense of humor and her epic dance in her introduction.

My liking of the character has made me like Rihanna’s work better because not only is she talented on music, but this and Bates Motel are her acting breakthrough outside of Battleship (2012), where she said the most memorable quote.

If you love Rihanna and are proud of being a part of her NAVY, then Valerian is the film to see her.
