It’s the year 2257 and a taxi driver has been unintentionally given the task of saving a young girl who is part of the key that will ensure the survival of humanity. The Fifth Element is filmed in a futuristic metropolitan city and in a French comic book asthetic by a controversial British, French and American lineup.

A true classic. The acting in this film by all characters is superb. I liked the storyline with the futuristic time period. It's too bad that you don't see more alien species in the movie. For being mid/late 90's film the special effects look pretty good. If you want a movie that you'll want to watch for a long time then buy this one. You won't be disappointed. If you are then you don't have very good taste in movies! 8.5/10
I could be rating this movie through my nostalgic lenses, but it was a great movie when I saw this repeatedly at age 12 and it remains a terrific movie now. It has a unique storyline and a brilliant view of the future; it bravely shies away from the dichotomous view of either a utopian or dystopian future and gives a future that we can understand and relate to. It really does take you away into a different world, with characters who are relateable and interesting. I can't see a reason to give this movie any less than 5/5.
