The Fifth Element may be one of the most unique science fiction movies ever made, and the most divisive. Join me as I review the 1997 Luc Besson movie that became a cult classic.

Imagine hating The 5th Element. Be glad you were born who you are or you could be one of them.

I genuinely enjoy your creative insight. I catch every video on this channel, I think. I don’t agree with every take but I really agree with the vast majority. Please give me one reason that you started a second CSshows account that isn’t sheer greed?

The finale was the weakest part, her freaking out at War, after passing by, you know, every other horror before that, but it was fun anyway

Childhood memory try being 6 years watching this movie
GrannyBX Před 11 hodinami
Yeah, nice film. Heavily borrowing from Jodorowksy's and Moebius' Incal story, which is not a bad thing per sé; some lawsuits were filed though. I recommend the comic to any fans of this movie. Or are comics even further beyond their prime than cinema is?
GrannyBX Před 11 hodinami
Of course I might call it a "graphic novel" but I'll go with comic nonetheless...

Main actor was supposed to be Jean Reno. But Studio said they needed a bigger name since they had sunked a good amount of money.

I love that you've been hitting my favorite flicks, starship troopers, fifth element, predator, demolition man. Ya need to tack Akira. That would be interesting
doliverelliott Před dnem
I suppose compared to what is coming out these days pretty good at least watchable which compared to current genre which are somnolence inducing. A disappointment after Stargate three years earlier. However Gary fucking Oldman...........always worth a look.

I Love it but the Blue Alien with the Inflatable for a head.

One of the things that really stuck out on this movie that I quite enjoyed is how the director made it feel like the characters were interacting with one another despite being in different places and conversing with others....yet their dialog matched up. Like the scene were Leeloo is explaining to the Priest where the stones are at and the Zorg is speaking with the Mercs about the stones.
Zen-RPG Před dnem
THe Design's of the decors, sets, cars etc, was Done/Inspired by renowed French Illustrator and Graphic novel author Moebius. The Costumes of the whole movie was designed by famous Fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaulthier.

10:23 Knowing the guy, i'd say Both. You can Hate or Love this movie, but for us in EU at the time it was the biggest thing we've ever seen and Besson always was someone creative with a unique way of doing things. It got weird or "bad" after he got kids and he started to make movies for "them" (Arthur & the Minimoys) But Besson's filmography is something amazing, Grand Blue, Leon, Nikita are all amazing movies.

Besides The Fifth Element, there are two other Bruce Willis sci-fi films from the same period that I love: Unbreakable and 12 Monkeys.

I know no one else is going to say it; I unironically love Ruby Rod! 💕

This movie looks like it was made using customized plastic detergent bottles as prop weapons. I used to read Heavy Metal magazine in my youth and I STILL hated it on sight! Garbage movie fabricated from literal garbage. 🤮

I saw this for the first time around 6 months ago. And...yes I think it’s unforgettable, but also I think it’s unwatchable in 2021😅
Notes and Letters Bill Cushing&Charles Corbisiero
Another favorite that turned me on to Besson. It's one of the best edited films ever, and I'm still convinced that the Bruce Willis character is based on the cabbie in Heavy Metal!
AlaMaKoty Před dnem
I looooove Fifth Element! I love Gary Oldman as Zorg as much as I love Gary’s role in Leon The Professional (actually I love all Gary Oldman’s performances)
TheGreatMunky Před dnem
If you liked Fifth Element then you should check out Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. It's another Luc Besson film. It's based on a French comic series, but the style of it feels like a spiritual successor to Fifth Element. As though it could easily be in the same universe.

Kubrick is rolling in his grave when you lumped him in with Hollywood!! How dare you sir! And also, good video, sir!

I often think how Ruby Rhod (Chris Tucker) obnoxiously broadcasting his whole life is probably the most accurate prediction of the future in the whole film.
joelt2002 Před 2 dny
Yep I've liked this movie since it came out. Interesting how your critiques of Chronicles of Riddick apply here, yet you seem to just gloss over it here. Both were good movies with vision and passion.

I set up audio clips from this to my computer back in the day. My "You've got mail" notification was replaced by Zorg saying "I Am Very DISAPPOINTED!" Ah, memories.

Big fan of Luc Besson...La Femme Nikita, The Professional, The 5th Element, Lucy,Joan of Arc. Strong visuals, and many insights into human dynamics, but bottom line - ALWAYS ENTERTAINING. Not your usual Hollywood Blockbuster by numbers.

This has to be the best description/review of the Fifth Element I’ve ever listened to.

It's a cult classic, because it's unique.
Bitchute is better than Youtube
Chris Tucker is an annoying f*^k in this movie, but thats barable cause Bruce Willis acts appropriately to him, and treats him like the audience wants to treat him. Which balances out the annoying. Bruce being visibly annoyed by him reflects the audiences annoyence. Compare that to Jar Jar, and how no one is pissed off at his shit, and the idiots bring the goof along on a mission where he risks the lives of billions through his incompetence

If you haven't seen Kuffs (1992) with Milla Jovovich (and mostly Christian Slater (and a sprinkling of Bruce Boxleitner)) you might just not hate it.

Another very good non-Hollywood science fiction movie is Russian made The Blackout from 2019. Highly recommend.

"Dr.Who the Armageddon factor" by Terrence Dicks has a better storyline about a person being both human and an element of a key to time. This made me watch this movie but novel is way better and makes more sense...

Milla Jovovich was in a 1992 movie called Kuffs with Christian Slater which I think was her first major role as apposed to this. Watch it Review it Thank me later Love from Dublin 🇮🇪

The fifth element is one of those rare movies that no matter how many times you watch it, you always find something new in it that you've never noticed before.
K J Před 10 dny
I had a crush on Milla Jovovich for a decade because of this movie :D Then when Hollywood decided acting skills didn't matter anymore and only flesh was important... It takes no effort getting your heart beating faster these days in Hollywood with endless amounts of beautiful women who can't act :D

I watched this film for the first time a few months ago and I briefly hated it until I realized it's entirely "style over substance", at which point I changed my expectations for it midway through the film and ended up loving it.

I freakin' love this movie; I'm a huge sci-fi fan, and this movie is up in the very top handful for me, for so, so many reasons. Leelu and her great big baby blues, Corbin 'Deep Fried' Dallas, with his crusty-on-the-outside, tender-in-the-middle persona, and Emanuel 'I know' Zorg, quite possibly my second favorite sci-fi bad guy of all time behind Grandpappy Darth... And yes, even Ru-Be-ROD is a character I just can't bring myself to hate; he's like a carbuncle, a big red boil that just explodes satisfyingly when you go at, and no matter what you do, the next day it's back, having fully regenerated overnight like a Dead Pool pimple, ready for another go... It utterly disgusts you, and it's horrifying to witness, but you can't leave it alone, you can't get enough! In a macabre way you look forward to it every morning, shamefully excited to see the grim spectacle once again... Yeah, I know, it's sick and wrong to detail something so intimately gross, but I think we've all been there in one way or another, figuratively, and for me at least, that disturbing and messed up experience is Ruby Rod, the red pustule on the otherwise flawless Milla Jovovitch complexion that is 'The Fifth Element'. Damn. Another all-nighter for work, way too much coffee and Red Bull, and in my semi-delirium I write about a big zit... Wtf....

I watched this as a kid, like, 5 or 6 years old, so young that my mom or dad had to read the subtitles for me (I'm not a native english speaker) and... I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I had it in a VHS and would watch it every 2 or 3 months. Such a cool film

Big fan of this movie. Wanted to add to the commentary that Mila J. did an absolutely fantastic job as well, especially for such a young woman - so confident and engaging, really lights up the screen in all of her scenes. And the alien language that she ripped out on cue! That, for me, would be entirely impossible to do.
