Flick Pick: The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element
(Columbia, 1997)

If you're trying to find a Luc Besson film that isn't worth watching, while there probably are some, this one isn't it. It's a bit different from his usual work. This time, in the car chase, the cars fly. The evil foreigners aren't French this time, they're from Mangalore. And when something explodes, sometimes it's so big it takes all of space to contain it. Bruce Wills is the out-of-control hero, Gary Oldman is the quietly menacing villain, Ian Holm the catalyst between the two, Chris Tucker in an utterly off-the-hook send up of the deranged love child of Prince and Dennis Rodman, and Milla Jovovich as the absolutely smoking hot titular heroine. Get your multipass, buckle in, and enjoy this ride.

Can you buy a multipass on Amazon?

As near as I can tell, if you can't get something on Amazon, you probably don't need it.
