A big ball of Evil is heading straight towards Earth. Assisted by the evil businessman and gunrunner Zorg (Oldman), it will extinguish all life on the planet. Why would Zorg and the ball do something like that? Because they’re Evil. The only thing that can stop them is the Supreme Being, who is actually a young woman (Jovovich) who doesn’t speak any English. She happens to runs into (or crashes into) cab driver Corbin Dallas (Willis) who just happens to be an ex-soldier. Along the way, the flamboyant DJ Ruby Rod (Tucker) and the priest Vito Cornelius (Holm) join them on their adventure. This unlikely band of misfits has to stop the Big Ball of Evil (and its entourage) from destroying the Earth.
As to the DVD, there are no extra features on the disc. Nothing! Very disappointing. But the picture and sound are very clear and bright. This is important because The Fifth Element has a lot of color and detail to it. Beside that, there is nothing else to recommend the disc. But hey, if you have a free rental coupon to Blockbuster, check it out.
