The Fifth Element ★★

This could have been an instant cult classic, drenched in an exuberant campness reminiscent of films like Ice Pirates and blending fantasy with science fiction in a way not out of place in eighties classics like Krull.

It fleshes out a vivid universe and manages to muster up an engaging plot.

And just look at that cast:
Willis
Oldman
Holm
The immaculate Brion James.
And even whatshername is ok.


And Chris Tucker.

Chris fucking Tucker.

He singlehandedly destroys this entire film with a voice that would make the toughest among you cry for mercy.

He's like getting a hangover while you're drinking.
