In the sci-fi cult classic The Fifth Element, Korben Dallas (played by Bruce Willis) is a smart- mouthed, jaded, recently- divorced just- fired taxi driver in future South Brooklyn, New York. More accurately, he is an ex-Special Forces soldier for the Federated Army trying to pull his life together as a civilian and having, shall we say, a rash of bad luck.
Korben was an extremely effective killing machine and a shoot-first-ask-questions-later decision- maker on the field, but now we see him alone, unappreciated, ineffective, jobless, and basically just fumbling.
Suddenly, his life gets turned upside down when a beautiful, orange- haired Divine, Leeloo, the Fifth Element, falls from the sky through his taxi roof, and he has to take her to a priest. He is re- enlisted in the Special Forces to take on a mission to protect Priest Vito Cornelius and Leeloo as they bring the 5 elements together to save the Earth from The Great Evil.

And oh yeah, he might be carrying a futuristic laser pistol, which he wields with deadly accuracy and no negotiations.
