The Fifth Element (1997) 1

By Scott Goldfine

Bruce Willis is a retired soldier called back to duty to save earth in this visually stunning but intellectually numbing sci-fi flick. He teams with the universe’s ultimate being, who, luckily for him, has assumed the form of a beautiful woman, to battle the universe’s ultimate evil.

This grating, wildly over-the-top Luc Besson-directed film continues the parade of sci-fi losers like “Mars Attacks!” and “Stargate.” Also stars Milla Jovovich and Gary Oldman. Rated PG-13.
