Faneditor Name:
Original Movie Title:
Fanedit Type:
Original Release Date:
1997
Original Running Time:
126
Fanedit Release Date:
Fanedit Running Time:
85
Time Cut:
41

Brief Synopsis:
This focuses more on Corben and Leloo and holds more mystery and most of all no Tucker talk.
Intention:
I think this edit will be not so funny and spectacular as the original is but anyone who wants more space for imagination will like it…..
Release Information
NTSC DVD-5
Cuts and Additions:
Cut secondary threads.

The focus is the Korben and Leeloo story. I want more mistery. I think there’s no need to repeat time after time that there is a threat from space and only hope is “fifth element”….so, I cut egypt intro and most of secondary threads…

Voodl does what fans of "The Fifth Element" have been dying for, for some time: He almost completely removes Chris Tucker from this edit. Yes, the annoying Ruby Rhod is at last gone, and for that alone, Voodl deserves much praise.

However, IMHO, Voodl goes on to cut too much. He removes the entire opening flashback sequence, which provides much of the necessary context for what happens later in the story. When a ship full of friendly aliens gets blown up, it makes no emotional impact, because we've never seen these characters before in this edit. (Oddly enough, Voodl kept Luke Perry in the fan-made opening credits even though he no longer appears anywhere in this cut!)

Also, the scene at the opera house happens a bit too quickly now. I realize that the cuts were made so that Chris Tucker could be further eliminated, but unfortunately, some really good action sequences also got eliminated as a result.

This is worth watching for any fans of the original movie. Voodl certainly put his heart and soul into the edit. But I still haven't quite found the definitive edition I'm looking for.
