The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element

In the 23rd century, a New York City cabbie, Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), finds the fate of the world in his hands when Leeloo (Milla Jovovich) falls into his cab. As the embodiment of the fifth element, Leeloo needs to combine with the other four to keep the approaching Great Evil from destroying the world. Together with Father Vito Cornelius (Ian Holm) and zany broadcaster Ruby Rhod (Chris Tucker), Dallas must race against time and the wicked industrialist Zorg (Gary Oldman) to save humanity.

A movie like no other-genre defying stuff.” (Empire Magazine)

“Visually inventive and gleefully over the top, Luc Besson‘s THE FIFTH ELEMENT is a fantastic piece of pop sci-fi that never takes itself too seriously.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
