Film Series: The Fifth Element

1997. France. Dir: Luc Besson. With Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich. 126 min.

Ancient alien evil threatens the 23rd century; from the moment Jovovich swan-dives onto his flying taxi, the task of saving the world falls, naturally, to ol’ Bruce. A blockbuster this overstuffed with spectacle – amazing costumes and makeup! show-stopping opera! Chris Tucker for some reason! – strikes the proper balance of ridiculous and truly imaginative.
