Editorial Reviews

A hunter, a scientist, a vampire, an invisible man, an immortal, a spy, a beast...when a masked madman known as "The Fantom" threatens to launch global Armageddon, legendary adventurer Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery) commands a legion of superheroes, the likes of which mankind has never seen.

Now, despite fighting their own personal demons - and each other - they mush join forces to save the world. Sean Connery leads a stellar cast in this breathtaking, "thrill-a-minute" (Jeffrey Lyons, NBC-TV) extravaganza loaded with "eye-popping effects and amazing action!" (Bill Bregoli, Westwood One)

Customer Reviews

Good cast, fun effects, great characters, decent action.
Huck
Although, there is something inspirational about a movie like this, if Hollywood will make a movie this bad, anyone can write a successful script.
Johnny O
This is one of the best movies I've ever had the pleasure to see [and this is coming from a fan of the comic books].

Format: DVD
Once again we have the temptation to compare the book to the movie, which I will succumb to just a little. Books and movies are different media, and each brings its own strengths to art. Such is the case here. The book was full and lengthy, and while it brought the same breadth of characters, it was able to provide a broader background for each of the characters. There were some spots where I thought the book was just a bit fuzzy on the plot, but I loved the style.

The movie provides more visuals, but with a two-hour length it had to cut back on the length of background for the characters. The movie glossed over some of the darker aspects of the characters, particular Alan Quatermain, but enhanced others, particular the background of Mina Harker. The other strange addition was that of the character of Dorian Gray. I also objected to the change in the invisible man character from the book to the movie. I much preferred the book's Hawley Griffin as the invisible man versus Rodney Skinner, who supposedly stole the formula. Griffin was a much stronger, more tormented character, though his characterization would require more film time to establish and would likely have weakened the roles of the primary actors.

In terms of characterization, Sean Connery clearly shined as Quatermain, as he always seems to do in every role. Peta Wilson is excellent as the sultry, dangerous Mina Harker. Naseeruddin Shah as Captain Nemo returns Nemo to his original characterization by Verne as a Sikh. Shah's Nemo was a welcome variation to previous Nemos, providing a sense of command, control and honor in comparison to those others who sometimes seemed simpering and typically talked far too much for Verne's Nemo.

LXG is a far-out cheesy marvel of a movie that I enjoyed every second of. The film features various fictional characters brought together as a sort of original x-men team of the past. Once united they battle the evil masked Fantom and his army who want to plunge the planet into a world war. The movie's larger than life elements make it an easy target to pick on, but I won't. I just can't pick on something that made me smile so much. This is wonderful stuff to enjoy with lots of popcorn and a favorite beverage.

Format: DVD
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is witty, action packed and smart. The film is, of course based on the comic book literary characters, and not so much on their traditional literary roles. One of the most interesting things done in this film dealt with Professor Moriarty. At the beginning he is portrayed as a middle aged gentleman, and at the end he is shown in younger form. Of course this is reminiscent of the idea that there were actually 3 Moriarty brothers - the elder being a professor, and the youngest being a criminal mastermind. The younger, according to his creator, Jules Verne, kills the elder and disguises himself as the professor. The only thing that would have been even wittier in this film would have been if they had managed to get Richard Roxburgh to play three roles instead of two, also posing as Captain Nemo. There is a strong belief among Jules Verne scholars that Captain Nemo was infact Professor James Moriarty!!! This film is an excellent action piece, whose only short coming would be the CGI effects (and no, Mr. Hyde is not CGI!!). There are a few characters that were CGI rendered which were obviously fake. Other than that the film is Extraordinary, but it must be taken for what it is - a film adaptation of a comic book.

This is a movie about a very unlikely group of heroes and superheroes that must join each other to win a battle against an evil madman and save the world from his malevolent, ultimate-destruction plan. This movie is a must for readers of classic literature since its main characters are:
*Allan Quatermain from the novel "King Solomon's Mines" by H. Rider Haggard
*Captain Nemo from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne
*The Invisible Man from "The Invisible Man" by H. G. Wells
*Wilhelmina Harker from "Dracula" by Bram Stoker
*Dorian Gray from "The Portrait of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde
*Tom Sawyer from "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain
*Dr. Jeckyll from "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson
For all of you who don't know who these characters are and have never read the original "League of Extraordinary Gentleman" graphic novels by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, if you really want to enjoy this movie as much as I did, you probably should read some of these classic novels first.
The plot is a very old and tried one, which has been re-done in this movie surprisingly well. Although you shouldn't expect many unanticipated twists in the story, do look for enjoyable references to other novels like: "Crimes of the Rue Morgue" by Edgar Allan Poe, "The Phantom of the Opera" by Gaston Leroux and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, among others. It even pays homage to Ian Fleming's 007 (James Bond) characters and Sir Sean Connery himself, as it includes a short banter with two characters named M and Q.
