This has all of the above for entertainment, for me. A solid plot, a long story, Comedy, Romance, Drama, Action, A beginning, middle two climaxes and an end. This is the epitome of an EPIC movie.

It's worth it whether you're a Sci-Fi junky or not. There is so much to take from this that I have watched it as a kid, teen and as an adult and I have never grown tired of it. My local movie theater has even shown this repeatedly over the years and people always go back to watch it in the theater. It's just that good.

You'll get pulled in if you start watching this, so start watching this.

Quality sci fi on display with this one..Id consider this quite ahead of its time..This was somethin id say deserved a sequel but never got one..The story was well developed and had the zany quirky characters..This movie could have been animated but it was live action and they were still able to pull off the look they were going for with this..This is one of those you can come back to every now and then and still catch some laughs..Also its as if this one never gets old lol because it set in a futuristic backdrop you can always come back and see what was in this movie might have changed in the real world to look similar to it..Like movies like that! Classic its bordering in that terriotory for sure! Great movie none the less

Great action movie, but it was very long movie.

So I watched on the 90s in school, but Bruce Willis is in this movie and Milla Too. Then, it was the love alien scene going on there, and bunch of sex scenes going on, and I think that battling is also my favorite part of the movie.

I thought it was a trip that this movie was the first time I saw what Tricky looked like. Actually, I didn't even know he was in this movie till I saw his name in the credits. THEN I found out what he looked like.


This whole movie is a trip.
I love it.

Also, Corbin's white cat looks cross-eyed.

I liked it, but it's not as good as: Transformers: The Last Knight.

This is actually not a science fiction but a fable using the passage of time across centuries to tell a spiritual story and building an ENTIRE mythos to do so.

That also was done by George Lucas over six films. Here Luc Besson, a famous French director does it in a single film, which is a STUNNING artistic achievement.

He's clever and masked all that in a mass appeal film and using a popular action star.

In reality he fell madly and hopelessly in love with Milla Jovovitch which is certainly understandable. They spent so much time together, and she was so impressive, that he was overwhelmed by her intensity and sincerity and ability.

The ancient to medieval paradigm (now discarded) of the four elements plays a role here. And [SPOILER] then had an ongoing relationship with the ancient Egyptians. The entire Great Pyramid at Giza then [SPOILER] . Then nearly 1.9 millenia later, they arrive to entrust the real treasure which is the 5th unspoken but essential element which is [SPOILER] ...

A SYFY movie with three of my favorite people. Gary Oldman, Bruce Willis, and Milla Jovovich. Everything that I like. This is a fast paced, offbeat story of Our past, and our future, according to the Mondoshawans. Five elements are need to join simultaneously, in order to save the Earth from destruction. Milla is one of them. She LITERALLY falls out of the sky, into the back of Willis' Taxi cab. She speraks no English, but understands "Big badda boom"! Willis takes her to the home of Father Vito Cornelius, where she eats a lot, and watching tv learns about our world, herself, and our language. The other four elements are Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water. They are all combined in a last second effort, saving the earth. For the present. Great acting by everyone, and a novel concept. One that i've never seen before. I think you'll like it. 8/10

This movie has a great cast. Bruce Willis has a great role in this film. And Milla Jovovich what can I say WOW !smiley Gary Oldman sure knows how to play the villain. Chris Tucker is in this as well. For an older movie the effects are top notch and there is plenty of action. This one of my favorite classic Sci-Fi movies of all time. I highly recommend this movie. smiley smiley smiley

Saw this in the theater and a few times since. Hard to believe that was 20 years ago and the special effects and props are still cool. Plenty of things going on to keep ones attention. @Craymoss cracks me up with "MultiPass!" 4.5/5
