Random question. Who is Corbins friend/"mechanic" on the phone? I cant find the name in the credits, it sounds like "Finger" but I cant see it. Am I blind, deaf, or just stupid? It's going to bug me forever, someone please help me out :)

Who does the voice of Finger? It sounds like Vin Diesel. I've searched the internet and the credits and everywhere else maybe someone can enlighten me:)

Yo this movie was sweet. Don't expect loads of action, just expect a fun, hip movie that only Bruce Willis could play as the leading role.

One of my favorite movies, hands down.
Gotta love chris tucker in this.

"A dyed in the wool killer" flick.
listen to us....we sound like gutless junket hopping journalist. what did we really like about this flick? granted it's not to be taken seriouslly but when is Luc Besson serious? how many movies of his can we expect a pouting soaking wet lolita nymph peeking through wet hair needing a rescue? how about all of them? several anachronistic characters flash back to the dick tracy colours of the early twentieth century. the soundtrack was stellar with a big "hey who the f*ck was that!" going out to Khaled's Alech Tradi (AKA the music we hear in the cab chase scene). I need to find this on DVD to add to the collection.
sh*t the bed folks!

It's one of my favorites movies. One of the writers did a panel on it at the Science Fiction Research Association a couple of years back. It was great to see it featured as if it was more than a cult classic. :) Look at the cab scene in the original Heavy Metal and and try and tell me The Fifth Element isn't a lengthened version. :) Pretty cool stuff and the music was great! I especially loved Ian Holme, Chris Tucker and Gary Oldman. And of course the leads. :) Can't imagine any other actors pulling it off.

The tattoo on Leeloo's arm were the dotted lines that stood for the four elements.

I dunno how original the ideas were, it seemed like a kaleidoscope of sci-fi movies such as Star Trek and Stargate all rolled into one.
But it worked and it was dam fun!
I think it was the ability of the movie to relate the world we live in now, to the futuristic world -- e.g. flying cabs, alien opera singer,
and also to the mythology of the past; elemental stones, and the friar/monk.
It's not quite a parody of sci-fi, but it is close to the edge. I would describe it as an action movie that is funny. Pushed all the right buttons. And so did Chris Rock with that flight attendant
I enjoyed this more than Starship Troopers.

Hm apparently the black dude is Chris Tucker, and not Chris Rock...(?)
>>By ftad (Monday, 1 Dec 2003 16:57)
yeah it was Chris Tucker. I just bought the special edition two disc DVD. The extras aren't too good although you do get quite a bit.
Does any body know if the language that Leeloo speaks is Ucranian (don't know how to spell it) as its Milla's nationality or is it completely made up?
Also isn't Gary Oldman great in the film.

I love Bruce Willis, He's made some crappy movies, i will admit, but then...when you look at him by himself, you can only think back to such movies as the fifth element and the die hard movies. HE plays such wonderful characters, and they are portrayed as real people, not some mushy i'm the best guy in the world. he has a run of bad luck constantly,b ut yet he uses his brain to beat the bad guys. Fifth element was definitely one of my favorite movies and I never really thought about the soundtrack but now that you guys have mentioned it i'm definitely going to look into it because i remember some awesome music coming from that movie, especially the diva's performance. I think one of the whole ideas behind the science fiction aspect was that love conquers all, even the darkest evil. forgive me if that just sounds so corny, but when you think about it, leeloo didn't want to save humanity after she saw all the evil it created correct? but it was the knowledge of love that led her to save it.
I especially loved the end when corbin dallas' mom was yelling at the president dude, that was excellent. As for leeloo's language...I'm not quite sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually some old language, i'll have to go back and relisten to some of the phrasing, but i remember the priest guy saying it was the ancient language or something like that. I don't think it's ukranian though. But ya never know, that would just be kind of cheesy if they did that.
Gary Oldman was creepy in that film, not realy a bad guy, just a scuzzbucket. I got the creeps just seeing him.
To end....BRUCE WILLIS ROCKS!

and yes the name is finger on the phone but his real name i don't quite known.
I remember him saying "finger's gonna kill me" when he wrecks the cab
>>By huckleberry (Thursday, 4 Dec 2003 19:05)
The "divine" language is a made-up language but Milla used a mix of different languages. I think there's some German, Romanian, Czechoslavakian, Japanese, etc. in there.
>>By Dare (Friday, 5 Dec 2003 03:08)
Is there a lot of latin in there? i would think that it wouldhave someheavy roots. I don't know.
