"Brilliant movie, so-so audio."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This Superbit version differs from the Region 1 version in that instead of DTs 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1, it has DTS, and Dolby Digital 5.1 in French only – somewhat bizarre considering it's a Superbit edition destined for English-speaking countries.

The English dolby channel is in Dolby Pro-Logic, which is just stereo with quasi-surround. The LFE (subwoofer) channel in the DTS encoding is also extremely low, I had to turn the Sub up to +8 to get a reasonable response, most movies have the sub at –2, +8 would be unbearable.

The videoencoding is crystal clear, around the 6–7Mbit/sec level (Spiderman hovers around 3.5Mbit/sec).

The movie itself is fanastic. High-energy action flick with big scenes, big sounds and big explosions. Great. However – I'd recommend getting the standard edition, NOT the Superbit one, due to the disappointing au­dio.

Description

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

From Luc Besson, the acclaimed director of 'Leon' and 'Nikita' comes a film that turns science fiction inside out.

Starring Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman and Milla Jovovich, 'The Fifth Element' takes you on an adrenalin-filled journey to a new dimension of sumptous visuals, stunt-packed set-pieces and spectacular explosions.
