|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Wildly imaginative tale set in the 23rd century, where a world-weary Brooklyn, N. Y. , cab driver finds himself involved with a strange woman who may be responsible for saving the world from destruction. A visual candy store of futuristic images, but the film's strongest suit is its sense of humor. Unfortunately, it gets a bit tedious and formulaic toward the end, with Tucker's over-the-top radio host hogging the spotlight. Conceived by Besson when he was a teenager. Super 35.
