critics consensus

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. Read critic reviews

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.

Critic Reviews for The Fifth Element

Audience Reviews for The Fifth Element

  • Sep 14, 2017
    A very uneven movie, It had a story that's been done a few times and it never feels different, It had some ok action scenes but nothing great, I enjoyed the cast plus I have always had a crush on Milla Jovovich so it's all good, The tone was annoying as the humour even though was good it always came after a dramatic scene so it felt awkward but apart from that it's just another average 90's sci fi flick.

    Luc Besson's mesmerizing sci-fi original is visually innovative and an assortment of humor, action and exuberance. The unorthodox soundtrack and advanced vibe caps off a film that's just pure fun and amusement. 4/5

    Over the top and campy as hell, The Fifth Element relies on cliché and non-substantial action to entertain, which ultimately failed to make it fresh. You've tried Besson.

    Ever since I first watched The Fifth Element in the late 90s, I've been inspired by Gary Oldman's Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg.
