The Fifth Element


A couple of hundred years into the future, New York cab driver Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) meets a mysterious girl (Milla Jovovich) whom he doesn’t realize is equivalent to the Second Coming. Director Luc Besson was a teenager when he conceived this story about a supreme Evil waiting to destroy Earth, but he doesn’t seem to have given it much thought since. It’s pretty thin and silly, with a hopelessly annoying Chris Tucker performance. The rest of the cast is fine though. The outrageous art design and cool visual effects, along with the action, make the film fun to watch. 

1997-France-U.S. 127 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Luc Besson. Screenplay: Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen. Cinematography: Thierry Arbogast. Cast: Bruce Willis (Korben Dallas), Gary Oldman (Jean-Baptiste Zorg), Ian Holm (Vito Cornelius), Milla Jovovich (Leeloo), Chris Tucker, Luke Perry… Mathieu Kassovitz.

BAFTA: Best Visual Effects.
