Good and evil battle for the future of 23rd century Earth in this visually striking big-budget science fiction epic. In the movie's prologue, which is set in 1914, scientists gather in Egypt at the site of an event that transpired centuries earlier. Aliens, it seemed, arrived to collect four stones representing the four basic elements (earth, air, fire and water) - warning their human contacts that the objects were no longer safe on Earth. A few hundred years later (in the 23rd century), a huge ball of molten lava and flame is hurtling toward Earth, and scientist-holy man Victor Cornelius (Ian Holm) declares that in order to prevent it from destroying the planet, the same four elemental stones must be combined with the fifth element, as embodied by a visitor from another world named Leeloo (Milla Jovovich). However, if the force of evil presents itself to the stones instead, the Earth will be destroyed, and an evil being named Zorg (Gary Oldman) will trigger the disaster. Despite her remarkable powers, Leeloo needs help with her mission, and she chooses her accomplice, military leader-turned-cab driver Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), when she literally falls through the roof of his taxi. Writer and director Luc Besson began writing the script for The Fifth Element when he was only 16 years old, though he was 38 before he was able to bring it to the screen.~Mark Deming
One of my favorite movies of Bruce Willis . This is mastered professionally as it displays a very vivid picture. Played on my Sony bdp x800m2 and it displayed very closed to 4k as my player upscaled it to near 4k resolution . All in all its a really great movie , like watching it as a new realease movie because of how clear the cinematics are . If you are in the fence of buying it , go for it and you won’t have any regrets like me.
As the summary says I love this movie. Having it on Blu-ray and the beautiful steel book is awesome. The Blu-ray video quality of the movie is really good, and the build an appearance of the steel book are really good as well. For anyone who loves “The Fifth Element”, I would highly recommend this. It was also a great price. Note: in my pictures, I put the insert behind the plastic cover, it did not come that way (Insert with UPC barcode.
I really love the artwork they did on this cover and not to mention it's Blu Ray. I was torn between the 4k Blu Ray 5th Element DVD but i was on a tight budget and got this. I like the cover but was disappointed there was no artwork handbook inside or anything. I expected a steelbook have goodies. This is still a nice collection however. I grew up watching this film and i knew i had to have it. I am coming back for the 4k soon :D
The Fifth Element has always been on my top 10 list of awesome movies of all time. But every time The Fifth Element has been released on Blu-Ray it has never included a Digital Copy. And now it does included ultraviolet Digital Copy and this version has been remastered in Dolby ATMOS.
