The Rewind: The Fifth Element (1990s)

The Fifth Element (1997large_yph0ZQC0I56CzQANxEMxj3x78gb)

Genre:Action, Adventure, Science Fiction

Director: Luc Besson

Starring:  Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman, Chris Tucker

In a future filled with visual stimulation, a cab driver unwittingly becomes part of a search for a  legendary cosmic weapon. Meanwhile villainous figures like Zorg.

I could gush about how much I enjoy this movie, but I’ll simmer down and get to the basics. The bottom line however is that if you’ve not seen The Fifth Element, you are missing out on something magical.

This movie answers the question, what if Luc Besson directed  Blade Runner. I don’t think The Fifth Element is as visionary, but it is twice as fun. Bruce Willis as Korben Dallas and Milla Jovovich as Leeloo lead the movie on a wacky adventure throughout the universe. The entire cast does great work. While it is heavy on action and sci-fi elements, there is certainly a flair for the dramatic and humor scattered throughout.

The Fifth Element is visually beautiful, even today it looks solid. (Better special effects than some of the movies I see today).

The acting is good, the action solid. The story is imaginative, fun, and exciting. This is one of Besson’s finest works, a beautiful addition to any sci-fi lovers collection.

The Fifth Element is one of the best action,sci-fi movies of the last twenty-five years.
