Description

    Set in the 23rd century, Luc Besson's visually-arresting The Fifth Element takes us to a world vastly different from that which we know today.

    For ex-Marine Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), life has become tediously repetitive: he drives a flying cab for a living, and eats take away from the same Chinese restaurant, which delivers directly to his window, every day. But little does Korben know, a great extra-terrestrial Evil has teamed up with Zorg (Gary Oldman), and threatens to destroy the Earth, an event which can only be prevented by combining the four Earthly elements with an alien "Fifth" element. Soon, Korben finds himself a pivotal figure in saving the Earth when a beautiful alien, Leeloo (Milla Jovovich), falls through the roof of his cab, and turns out to be the elusive fifth element.

    In the ultimate battle of good versus evil, only Korben and Leeloo control the key to humanity's survival. And the clock is ticking...

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A worthy addition to any 4K Collection. There are not many older films worth buying in 4K - Either because the original film stock is too grainy/degraded (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), or they just plain do a sloppy job (Goodfellas) when they scan; or the studio just repackages a an older 3D scan into 4K (Terminator 2). This 4K presentation of Fifth Element is solid. A little grainy when blown up on a big screen - but it adds warmth rather than annoyance when watching. Definitely an upgrade in visible details and of course colour over the Bluray. Not quite as good as the 4K scan of Unforgiven (the gold standard so far of older films in 4K), but very solid - I'd give the quality in 4K a 4/5 for an older film.
