Format: DVD
Wow - this miniseries is a scattershot mess of poor ideas and weak execution. Professor Arronax is no longer a middle-aged Frenchman, but now Patrick Dempsey with a robotic hand. Conseil, his longtime valet, has been replaced by a newly created (and poorly conceived) daughter. Ned Land will be familiar to fans of Due South in the US and several Canadian productions as square-jawed Paul Gross. Michael Caine plays the villain of the piece, who readers of the novel will know was a much-maligned Hindu prince. Taken by its own merits, the script is weak, characterization bad, the plot is dull and the production is cheap. This is for completists only - or perhaps those who wondered what happened to Patrick Dempsey prior to Grey's Anatomy brought him back to the spotlight.

With Respect for the Jules Verne Classic Novel May 26 2006
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format: DVD
Few knew when Jules Verne was writing his futuristic novels in the 19th century that such entertaining page-turners would foretell so much reality. In this 1997 adaptation of Verne's '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' the screenwriter (Brian Nelson) and director Rod Hardy have elected to pay homage to the scientific aspects of the thriller rather than make the story into a cartoon. And though it is a long song (3 hours), it plays well and introduces some fine special effects and philosophical statements about environmental issues, slavery, feminism, familial relationships, and commitment to dreams. Not bad for a Sci-Fi novel!

The cast is solid: Patrick Dempsey makes a wholesome, handsome Pierre Arronax, Bryan Brown as the driven sailor Ned Land, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is excellent as Cabe Attucks (nice to see this fine actor in a role far different than the one he played on the TV series 'Oz'), John Bach is the arrogant father Thierry Arronax, and Mia Sara serves up the beefed up role of Mara nicely. But the submarine mysterious ship Nautilus surfaces or sinks at the hands of Captain Nemo and while Michael Caine isn't the embodiment of evil we so often see, he finds the soul of the driven scientist whose goal is to protect the 'surface' he has forsaken to scuttle the seas in search of ways to stop future earthquakes topside.

Originally made as a mini-series for television in 1997, the movie for sails along, holding our attention and fascination for the full three hours, not only because we care about the characters, but also because we are treated to some spectacular underwater sequences and a Nautilus that is as elegant a vessel as Verne described. And yes, Captain Nemo still plays the pipe organ as part of the musical score. The script gets a bit on the corny side, especially in the areas of father son relationships, and the unnecessary spin on romances that seem to be de rigueur in keeping an audiences attention. But in the end this is an entertaining interpretation of the Jules Verne classic that still stimulates our thinking and challenges our concepts of environmental concerns. Grady Harp, May 06

Micheal Caine is Captain Nemo May 24 2006
By J.R. - Published on
Format: DVD
This isn't just a movie; it's a ride on the Nautilus. There is no comparison between this version and the Disney one; they are two completely different entities. This version is much more intelligent and mature. The characters are treated with respect and portrayed believably by an incredible cast. Everything on the ship and in the underwater scenes are pure eye-candy.

underrated, treat it as it's own thing April 13 2009
By Matthew Schenk - Published on
Format: DVD
I watched this movie when it originally aired on TV, and it inspired me to want to read the book. I had only seen the Disney movie before, but not since I was a little kid so I didn't really remember it. The book ended up being really different, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying this movie. The Stanley Kubrick version of The Shining doesn't have much to do with the book it's based on either, but I still love it. If you can watch this version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as it's own thing, it's actually really good. I actually always thought it was one of the best made-for-tv movies, and I wanted to see it again but they never reaired it. Finally it came out on DVD after YEARS of searching for it, and I still like it.

I don't understand all the negative reviews. I'm probably going to get attacked for this, but I actually like this better than the Disney movie, which I watched again not long after this aired. The Disney movie feels to me like a travelogue and has minimal story. This version has a better story and a more climactic ending. There's more happening. It's darker, edgier. There's more character development, and a couple new characters (Nemo's daughter, played by Mia Sara), which may make some people mad but I thought it added to the story. One of the criticisms I've heard people make of Jules Verne is that he wasn't very good at writing women. All the same themes and ideas are here, some of them are just presented in a different way. The special effects aren't as good as I remembered, they look kind of cheap, but halfway through the movie you stop noticing because you're drawn into the story.

Anyway, give it a chance. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Finally on DVD!!! Do not compare to the original and give it a chance!!! April 28 2006
By S. H. - Published on
Format: DVD
This mini series may not be as popular as " The Odyssey" or " Merlin". In fact, many people may not recall it because it recieved a poor rating. But this version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is the first mini series I can remember sitting all the way through and enjoying it. I think part of the reason it was rated so poorly is because it was compared to the Kirk Douglas film of the same name. I am one of those people who are strongly against comparing so called "remakes". Pretend you have never seen the original and just enjoy the movie for what it is. Michael Caine (Batman Begins), Patrick Dempsey (Scream 3), and Mia Sara (Legend) are 3 good reasons to at the very least give this mini series a shot. I am not saying that everyone will like this movie, but how will you know if you don't try it out? It may be a future addition to your DVD collection.

My kids love it! Jan. 14 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: VHS Tape
I rented this last night at the Public Library. It has everything that a family can enjoy. The story isn't bad as they stay close the the Verne highlights. The songs are cute and the underwater photogrophy along with some computer generated additions.
The main fans of this video in my household are my son (age 7) and my daughter (age 4).
Based on their enthusasim for this video, I will be ordering a copy from!
