The Fifth Element Movie Review

Hop to

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 yet it's characters have some real development which shows 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.......

Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) is a Taxi driver on earth and an ex-soldier in the galactic force, one day his life is changed forever when a fare falls through his cab roof. The fare is Leeloo the perfect being, well to Korben she looks very perfect, but little does he know she is the ultimate weapon against evil. Talking of evil, a large object has just appeared at the edge of the universe and is expanding at an alarming rate, it is pure evil and its intent is to destroy all life in the universe. Only Korben and leeloo can save the universe, but they need the help of a priest, an army, an opera singer and have to get around the bad guy chasing them for the weapons power, if it falls into his hands the universe is doomed.

This DVD of the movie is the Japanese Advanced DTS edition and to all intents and purposes features much of the special features on the UK disc along with the same video transfer.
