The fifth Element in my opinion was one of the most under rated sci-fi films of the last few years. It is visually stunning with huge digital sets which show George Lucas how things should be done. The costume design also adds to this futuristic epic which just oozes class from the screen. I would be surprised if any Home cinema fan has yet to see this film but for those who have not yet had the chance.......
