What is the Fifth Element?

This post is about the best movie ever – The Fifth Element, a movie from 1997 directed by the super talented French director Luc Besson (Transporter series, Revolver, Taken, La Femme Nikita, Taxi, Leon,L’immortel … it goes on like this …).

Basically, if you haven’t seen it (c’mon really?), the story goes like this: A mild mannered taxi driver, well an ex-military specialist trained in all of the arts and technology of combat, is swept into a “save the earth” mission after a hot babe (Milla Jovovich – See below) literally falls through the roof of his taxi cab. A flying taxi cab. That flies through the air.

After winning a radio prize to go to Phloston Paradise on a magical space cruise, the taxi driver, otherwise known as Korben Dallas (AKA Bruce “the juice” Willis), must slaughter hundreds of evil alien mercenaries in the hope to see the blue alien lady named Plavalaguna sing (On a side note: I totally would!).

In all seriousness though, this movie is spectacular! The cast is great, the sound is powerful and rich, the visual style and technology is astounding, and the story and plot are very intriguing and compelling. Any science fiction movie fan would be insane to not have seen this film.

Oh! And it has Chris Tucker as Ruby Rhod! How could anyone forget this character! He’s super green:

    A different scifi movie than we are used to. The makers of The 5th Element has done nothing to make any of the science fiction seem believable by spicing the movie with science-facts as it is often done. This doesn’t make it a bad movie though.

    The most beautiful science fiction film to come out for years, great costumes and special effects, but its plot is not quite up to its appearance.

      Are you freaking kidding me? No plot, the movie is a spectacle of precision, synchronicity and flawless timing. The ultimate good vs evil, life vs death and an incredibly entertaining PLOT of two seemingly unrelated characters who fall in love in an epic quest to save the UNIVERSE…, please, no plot?…, whatever. 90 percent of movies and films today should have this much plot and genius production.
