Product Description

Product Description

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)

Amazon.ca

The heroes of 1899 are brought to life with the help of some expensive special effects in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. From the pages of Victorian literature come Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll (and his alter ego Mr. Hyde), Dorian Gray, Tom Sawyer, an Invisible Man, Mina Harker (from Dracula), and the hunter Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery), all brought together to combat an evil megalomaniac out to conquer the world. Hardly an original plot, but perhaps that's fitting for a movie sewn together like Frankenstein's monster. The movie rushes from one frenetic battle to another, replacing sense with spectacle--Nemo's submarine rising from the water, a warehouse full of zeppelins bursting into flame, Venice collapsing into its own canals; flashy, dumb, and completely incoherent. Fans of the original comic book will be disappointed. Also featuring Peta Wilson, Shane West, Stuart Townsend, Richard Roxburgh, and Jason Flemyng. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
No matter how many average, weird, or downright awful movies Sean Connery makes, he'll always command an audience. In this film, Connery plays a retired British explorer roped into preventing WW I by leading a team of misfits in a vaguely Bondian adventurer. As a nice twist, most of the misfits consist of 19th Century British villains such as Mr. Hyde, the Invisible Man, and Captain Nemo. Of course, no one bothers to explain why such villains would agree to unite for any cause other than, well, villainy. The film is comic book-y in a bad way, with ridiculous dialogue and a poor sense of continuity, and the effects are frequently unintentionally funny, especially Mr. Hyde's appearance. Connery makes the film work as a throwaway action film, but it's clear from the extras that the cast and some of the crew were deluded into thinking this was something more. Not surprisingly, this movie plays much better on DVD than it did in the theaters. If you're a die-hard Connery fan, you'll like this one. If not, and you want to see Connery at his best, you'd be better off with Goldfinger.

The title League of Extraordinary gentlemen is pretty self
explanatory.basically,adventure Allan Quatermain(Sean Connery)recruits
a group of heroes with various abilities,to take on a villain named the
Fantom,and prevent him from starting a World War.the movie takes place
in an alternate Victorian era.the movie is directed by Stephen
Norrington(Blade).I enjoyed this film much more than i expected.i really
had low expectations,but one day,i saw it cheap and thought what the
heck.this one has a lot going for it.lots of action,good special
effects,a bit of intrigue and even some humour.i liked the premise and
i thought they did a good job with it.i think the movie had the
potential to be much worse,but it all worked well.i give this movie a
strong 4/5

This is one of those films that a first viewing disapoints, it's not at all what I expected, much like "Van Helsing", but on further viewings becomes a true joy. The only weakness IMHO is that it is clearly the first of a series of films... that will never be filmed. Sad.

The league of Extraordinary Gentlemen(Released July/03) stars,among others,Sean Connery as Allan Quartermain,Naseeruddin Shah as Captain Nemo,Peta Wilson as Mina Harker,Tony Curran as Rodney Skinner,Stuart Townsend as Dorian Gray and Shane West as Tom Sawyer.This film,on paper,had SO much potential to it one couldn't help to think it would be a no brainer of a hit.But somehow,somewhere along the line,the film makers totally screwed this one up.
The plot finds us in 1899 just before the turn of the century.The world has an arch villain in the form of"The Phantom",who is seemingly trying to start a World War with technology that is quite far in advance of that period of time.A rep from Her Majesty's government goes to Kenya to enlist the help of Allan Quartermain(Connery).He is at first reluctant but when assassins come to his lodge and try to kill him,it proves to be the deciding factor to join the fight.A man known as "M"(a throw back hint to the James Bond movies)is the one in charge of recruiting many well known "celebrities" such as Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde,Capt.Nemo,Tom Sawyer,The Invisible Man,Dorian Gray and an old assistant to Van Helsing who is now a vampiress.They have a brief run in with the Phantom and they follow his trail to Venice,where he is going to blow up the entire city.They have four days in which to travel and Nemo's infamous Nautilus sub will get them there with time to spare.They arrive just as street celebrations are underway.The Phantom starts blowing the city up,but a well placed missile stops the calamity from spreading.Soon after,while heading east on the Phantom's trail,they find bombs have been planted aboard the sub and Gray has been working with M,who have been in cahoots with the Phantom.

I don't think that this movie is as bad as a lot of people have said, it didn't fulfill its potential, but it wasn't bad. The main problems were it was a hard genre to get across. It is known as "steam punk", a spin off of the cyber punk genre. Where they are using high tech items, but with technology present in their age. Examples of this are the short lived series The Secret Adventures of Jules Vern, the movie Wild Wild West, and the Deadlands game. They had to explain a lot of this in the movie since the average movie goer wouldn't get it.
A lot of the weapons they use are way beyond what they would have used in that era, and they aren't what they were. The body armor is heavy metal plates designed to stop bullets, the guns are heavy brass weapons, the power suits and clunky and slow moving. But from 20-50 years ahead of their time.
The characters they use are for the most part well depicted from their source material. Alan Quartermain is a bitter sexist old man who is regretful of his past and the British Empire. Mina Harker is distant and fighting with her supernatural nature. Dr Jekyl is repressed and tired of fighting with Mr Hyde. Mr Hyde is brutal and thuggish, but brillant. Captain Nemo is still searching for meaning having abandoned both India and Britain. Dorian Grey is decadent and bored, nothing can cause him worry, he's effectively immortal. The only character that doesn't seem to fit is Tom Sawyer, who was added to give the group an American pull, but fits as a surrogate son for Quartermain. As well as the "invisible man", who they had to change. Due to some legal conflicts they couldn't use the name Hawley Griffinm, so created a believable character, a thief who'd stolen the formula.
All in all this is a good movie with a few flaws.
