RMG 284 – The Fifth Element (1997)

March 30, 2022

On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by John Leavengood (find more from John HERE), and are geeking out over The Fifth Element (1997) and

  • how comics and movies inspire one another
  • how good the movie looks
  • criticism
  • three dimensional characters
  • and much, much more!


In the year 2257, a planet-sized sphere of supreme evil is approaching the earth at relentless speed, threatening to exterminate its every living organism unless four ancient stones, representing the elements of earth, wind, fire and air, are united with the mysterious ”fifth element”.

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…

Now, together, they must save the world.
