About this movie

New York cab driver Korben Dallas didn't mean to be a hero, but he just picked up the kind of fare that only comes along every five thousand years: A perfect beauty, a perfect being, a perfect weapon. Together, they must save the world. Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, and Gary Oldman star in acclaimed director Luc Besson's outrageous sci-fi adventure, an extravagantly styled tale of good against evil set in an unbelievable twenty-third century world. Now fully remastered in 4K, experience this dynamic action favorite like never before.

Perfect mix of sci-fi and comedy, with great characters, sets, effects, plot, and overall atmosphere. In a way, this movie embodies the best of the 1990s while still feeling very alien and futuristic. Just simply fantastic. I've seen this movie several times, I never get bored of it. Solid action from beginning to end, I cannot believe anybody could get bored or tired of it :)

A film so advanced at its time. A film that really just shows how Benson is simply the greatest. Films that are like no other, and truly unique. A film with constant love, emotion, action, humor as well intensity along with a legendary cast like Bruce Willis, Leeloo, Ruby as well as Zorg who all nailed there roles (like Gary always does) and how they truly made the film so iconic, legendary, unforgettable & one of the greatest of all time. What an amazing and extraordinary film. Truly legendary.

If you are looking for a movie with a deep message about life, this isn't it. This is an escape movie, a guilty pleasure. Sure, the plot is simplistic and has been played and replayed before: reluctant hero saves the world and falls in love with alien. Bruce Willis is dead on, but Chris Tucker steals the movie. Won't spoil the movie for you. Just get a large popcorn and plop yourself in front of the TV. Enjoy!
