Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Bruce Willis stars as Korben Dallas, a New York cab driver turned unlikely hero in this timeless story about love and survival set in the 23rd century. In this future world posited by acclaimed writer-director Luc Besson, humanity has wandered out among the stars, spreading the life-energy of the universe and further agitating the dark force, whose time to strike back occurs only once every 5,000 years, when a doorway between the parallel dimensions briefly opens. That time is now, and Zorg (Gary Oldman), the agent of darkness, intends to take advantage of it. Humanity's hopes may lie with Leeloo (Milla Jovovich), who represents the fifth element, the life force. Leeloo holds unimaginable powers, but she needs help, and Korben befriends her. Nothing less than the future of the universe is in their hands. This special Fathom’s Big Screen Classics event includes exclusive insight from Leonard Maltin.

What an attempt, and what a work of the imagination. The Fifth Element' will change the look of science fiction and will probably be imitated for years.

The action is fast, furious, and as wacky as science fantasy gets.

It may or may not be the worst movie ever made, but it is one of the most unhinged.
