  • I would not have missed seeing this film, and I recommend it for its richness of imagery. But at 127 minutes, which seems a reasonable length, it plays long. show more

  • It's ludicrous, but it's fun. Besson is a filmmaker so in love with his own daffy excesses that he's able to pull us, laughing, right into his world of loony pop. [9 May 1997] show more

  • 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. show more

    Simply outstanding! A visual treat both with the creative costumes as well as many direct and indirect jokes planted across the film. Milla Jovovich is gorgeous and a believable \'perfect being\' and innocent.
