DHS- Bruce Willis in The 5th Element

Korben Dallas

Major Korben Dallas is the main unlikely heroic protagonist of 1997's The Fifth Element and who is played by Bruce Willis.

He is a former Special Forces soldier that worked for the Federated Territories. He worked as a Cab Driver for 6 months until he was fired by Mr. Jean-Baptiste Zorg.


Korben was suddenly thrust into saving the universe when Leeloo, wrapped in thermal bandadges, fell from the sky through the roof of his cab. After a thrilling car chase, including police gunfire, Leeloo tells Korben to take her to the priest Vito Cornelius before passing out.

When they arrive, Cornelius learns that Leeloo is the Fifth Element and leaves the room. Korben, perhaps trying to wake her, hesitantly gives her a kiss, resulting in Leeloo weilding his own pistol against him, spouting a foriegn language. Realising that was probably a bad idea, Korben apologises and tries to introduce himself, asking for her name in return. Vito returns with his apprentice, among other things, and asks Korben his name before quickly expunging him from the premesis.

After returning to his apartment and explaining to Finger why he never showed up, and ordering a bit of food, Dallas gets a call from his mother, asking him why he didn't tell her he won the Gemini Crocket Contest. This came a surprise, as he didn't enter such contest. He is then visited by General Munro of the Federated Army, telling him they re-enlisted him and rigged the contest to make sure Korben is sent to Phloston Paradise to retreive the four elemental stones from the Diva Plavalaguna. While in the apartment, Leeloo rings the door buzzer. Remembering that the government was after her, Dallas hides the General and his compatriots in his refridgerator before letting her in. Cornelius, having learned where the stones are, pulls a gun on him, telling him they need the tickets to Phloston for the same purpose.

Suddenly, the apartment alarm goes off signaling a police control. Again, Korben is faced with hiding multiple people in his small apartment. After quickly hiding Leeloo in the shower above the fridge and Vito in the retractable, self making bed, he complies with the police. Once they leave, Dallas frees a soaking wet Leeloo and the plastic wrapped Cornelius and offers them coffee. Stiking him on the head, Cornelius takes the tickets and leaves with Leeloo.
