The New York Times by Janet Maslin

As a yammering, swishy talk show host, Chris Tucker is flat-out incomprehensible, while Mr. Oldman preens evilly enough to leave tooth marks on the scenery.


Chicago Reader by Lisa Alspector

Even the revelation of what the fifth element is at the end is disingenuous--in fact, the archness of this whole project is repellent.


USA Today by Susan Wloszczyna

But for all the fancy-schmancy effects (budget: $90 million-plus), the vision of a hypercongested metropolis is not much more sophisticated than an episode of "The Jetsons." [9 May 1997]
