The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element

Luc Besson (1997)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Ancient evil returns to destroy the galaxy in this ultra-hip, socially conscious and clever science-fiction action adventure from director Luc Besson. Bruce Willis's laconic former government agent is forced to save the universe when the secret key to preventing its destruction literally falls into his cab in 23rd-century New York. This superb flight of imagination soars into original terrain for an inventive rollercoaster ride and is a stunning achievement that delivers on all levels. The satire is slick, the visuals unusual and the thrills futuristic, and if the Big Apple special effects don't amaze, the camp trip to the resort planet of Fhloston Paradise certainly will. Gary Oldman's villainous Zorg is haute-couture corruption personified.
