Directed and co-written by Luc Besson in 1997, this comical action-packed SF drama depicts the struggle between the evil and the good.
Although special visual effects appear great, the story seems somewhat foolish and ridiculous so that I quite vieweing halfway through.
I don't like comics too much.

"Multi pass." One of the 90s most ridiculous movies is an over the top sci-fi lollapalooza that rips off 30 years of genre movies, tries to be funny, and throws in a love story for the heckuva it. French hack auteur Luc Besson, who came up with the idea for the movie when he was a teen, throws everything on the screen, and, at the very least, there's always something to look it. Most of the actors seem to have been given totally different directions: Bruce underplays, Gary Oldman, sporting absurd hair and a Southern accent, overplays, Ian Holm looks lost, Milla Jovovich has orange hair, and Chris Tucker, well, Chris Tucker. Maybe the most obnoxious performance of the decade. On the plus side, the costumes were designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier, musician Tricky has a small part, and it's not boring. Besson would return to sci-fi extravaganza with his recent "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets," which was just bad bad, not good bad.

These entertainers at their prime prime 21 years ago in this epic sci-fi comedy:
-Bruce: still ripped and with most of his hair.
-Milla Jovovich: the breakout role before Alice in the Resident Evil franchise.
-Besson: prolific French film maker of Taken franchise, Transporter trilogy, Lucy and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
-Chris tucker: Comedian extraordinaire in drag.
-Gary Oldman: One of the most versatile actor, latest as Churchill in Darkest Hour.
- Ian Holm: Bilbo in Lord of the Rings and Hobbit franchises.

A great movie with a plot, villain and conclusion so wacky and insane that it wouldn't make any sense to someone who hasn't seen it if you tried to explain it to them. Aside from the numerous comedic moments, it doesn't make sense that this movie is so enjoyable or endearing. Yet somehow, it's really a truly 'fun' movie.

Could have been great but Chris Tucker ruins it

This movie is certainly an ambitious one, but perhaps it overstretched itself, or something was lacking in the final product for it to fully flower ( maybe Bruce Willis wasn't the best choice for lead role ). Design by artist Mobius makes this an eye popping affair .

This is one of my all-time favorite go-to movies. Even if you're not a sci-fi fan, there's something for everyone here. The ensemble is incredible and its one of the few movies I've seen where the main character and main antagonist never actually meet. It's simply brilliant and some of Besson's best work.

A real box office sleeper, I saw The Fifth Element in 1997 twice at the Theater! This is an excellent action sci-fi movie. Like most great sci-fi's there is a subtle love story, which blends the movie together. Gary Oldman is fantastic, and a new comer Milla Jovovich rocks the screen with her super model body and grace. Bruce of course saves the day. This is an amazing colorful smash hit film from Luc Besson!
