The Fifth Element

I long for the day cars could fly! This movie is more than a decade old; cars are still not flying! Great movie regardless!

The Fifth Element
   An ancient secret is needed to save the world, hidden deep in the deserts of Egypt. The movie starts with a prelude from 1914 when the Monascheiwans come to Earth to remove the four Element stones and the Fifth Element because war is coming. The priest in charge of the secret begs the Monascheiwans not to take them, for Evil is coming soon to Earth (every five thousand years) and the weapon of the five elements is needed to destroy the coming evil. The Monascheiwans assure the priest …

Some Blu Ray remasterings or reissues of prior DVDs can leave one a litte "so?", but with some movies -- "The Fall", "Baraka", and the "Fifth Element", you will remember why you bought that HD TV in the first place.    Those of us who liked or loved this movie really enjoyed the plot, the vivid colors, and the special effects for reasons other reviewers have touched on.    However, the colors are even more vivid, the soundtrack more lush, and the special effects …

I just bought a blu-ray player, and thought this would make for a good inaugural disk. I've enjoyed watching this in SD, and hoped the high def version would be even better.    Happy to say I was not at all disappointed. The video and sound are both excellent -- it's a great way to see what your blu-ray play can deliver.    There are, however, no extras on the disk - just the movie. But the movie alone is well worth the price of admission. If you're a science …

The fifth element is an action film, hosted by the great Bruce Willis. There are visuals in the Fifth Element that even to this day look terrific. Compare the Flying cars to the traffic in the backgrounds of Episode I. Lets first understand that The Fifth Element is a visual eye candy extravaganza. Not necessarily the best, but very imaginative. The story is also an invention that couldn't have easily been dreamed up. It's pretty original. Its almost hard to take a movie like The Fifth Element and …

This movie was a bit of a surprise to me. When I saw it for the first time in the theater I wasn't expecting all that much, but man was I wrong! The movie is based on the idea that every few thousand years or so the ultimate evil awakens and tries to wipe out all life in the universe. The only defense against it is a weapon built by an ancient race and (coincidentally) stored on earth. The weapon is the Fifth Element. The other four basic elements are fire, water, earth and air. The Fifth Element …

Pros: Pulp style action adventure     Cons: Not for the humor challenged     There are movies that I adore because they represent the art of filmmaking at its best and most beautiful. There are movies that I hate for excessive gratuitous violence and the "f" word uttered so many times that I want to count the number of occurrences.      THEN, there are movies that I love because they poke fun at so many of our conventions. The …
