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.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

I really enjoyed this movie. I've never read the comic book, but I loved the concept of it. The only thing I didn't care about in the film was the guy who drank all the Hyde Potion and turned into that huge disgusting monster. But the highlights of the film were the scenes with Richard Roxburgh. That man can truly act, he gets your attention. He is also good at dialect, for instance, when he was the Phantom he spoke with a German accent, when he was 'M' he spoke with a very proper British accent, then at the end when he was Moriarty it was more like a kind of cockney or maybe it was just a strong Austrailian accent (knowing him being from Austraila). He did his scenes well, though there were too few of them. That stupid Tom Sawyer shouldn't have killed him. Although, I've heard that in the Sherlock Holmes novels they can't seem to kill Moriarty. So, I think they should make a sequel to this movie and have Moriarty (being that he was just faking death, and again being portrayed by the great Richard Roxburgh) come back and kill Tom Sawyer. The villains are usually the more interesting ones anyway.

LXG isn't exactly like the comic book, but that's understandable. The comic book version is a game where readers try to spot hundreds of literary references. Many viewers couldn't grasp the far smaller number of literary references in the movie. A straight adaptation of the comic would have been even more confusing for those not "in the know".
LXG has been called a bad comic book adaptation, but it isn't like other comic book movies. Comic book movies are adapted from comics. LXG is based on characters that were adapted into a comic book. The makers of the movie didn't just adapt the comic, but went back to the original books in some cases. Quatermain, for instance, isn't exactly like he is in the comic, but Moore's Quatermain wasn't like Haggard's creation. The movie version of Quatermain is closer to the literary character of Haggard. Connery's Quatermain is fantastic.
Some say the film isn't as good as the comic, but the comic isn't as good as the books it's based on. Is Alan Moore the next H.G. Wells? No way. Moore's work can't be compared to the works it is based on. It has to be accepted for what it is. The same is true of the movie. The movie is an old-fashioned adventure, but the comic book is more about shoe-horning in hundreds of literary references than anything else. I liked the comic, but I enjoyed the movie too.
