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)

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

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.

OK, if you really pushed me, I'd give this film a 3 and 1/2 stars, but since Amazon won't go for that, 3 it is. This is one of those films that comes "oh so close" to being solid but falls short because it's not character-driven enough. With such a solid cast, it's a shame that the various members of the "league" didn't get enough of a chance to develop. I suppose the viewer is supposed to be well-versed enough in 19th and 20th Century literature to know all about these characters, but that's too much of a stretch for me. Sean Connery is great as Alan Quartermain, but the others characters (The Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde, Dorian Gray, Captain Nemo, etc.) get little more than glorified cameos.
The movie is definitely "heavy" in computer generated effects. Very realistic and convincing, but maybe a little too much over the top. The decibel level from all of the gunfire, explosions, etc. will certainly give one's surround sound system a workout! But don't get me wrong, the graphics ARE great, especially the depiction of Nemo's sub, The Nautilus!
The plot is rather tepid and the average viewer will probably come away scratching his or her head somewhat about certain parts of it, but keep in mind that in is "comic book material" in general. Suspension of disbelief will be needed to enjoy the film!!
The movie is stylishly filmed and has some great scenery and locations. It moves along at a rapid pace and there is very little down time in the film. I'm choosing not to go into the plot in this review because too many earlier reviewers have done so. The reader of this review can find out that information very quickly if so desired. What I will say is that "LXG" is a fairly enjoyable 110 minutes. If the viewer is a Sean Connery fan then by all means, rent or buy this DVD. Viewers who enjoyed Spider Man, Daredevil, and the X-Men series will probably go for this type of action as well.

I don't think I've seen a movie where it's so hard to find an agreeable review... Well at least the people whom hate it can't agree on what makes it bad.... And I think that says a lot. The reviews that say the Quartermain character is a ripoff of Indiana Jones was particularly amusing since Lucas and Spielberg themselves state those flicks were based off the OG Quartermain character... Well that's what too much Eminem music and a lack of reading will do to you I guess.
I keep hearing "not enough characterization", or "too much characterization, I read all the books, I feel insulted!"
Well, to put these main charcters from all the books into a movie, and to give a thorough rundown of each... Would make one of the LOTR extended cuts seem like a commercial break. And those who read all the books didn't take note that there are some differences from the OG sources... Namely the Invisible Man who in the movie states he's not the original one. So thoe ones at least should go back to the library!
No one can agree on the CGI either... I'm still waiting to hear or read a universal agreement about the quality of CGI in a movie. Any movie that uses it there's always people that love it and hate it. IMO it looks about par for the course.
I will agree on the too hectic editing in fight scenes. particularly the library one is bad. By the last third of the movie though they seem to have found a good pace.
I haven't read the comics to fairly compare, but having read all the classics save for The Picture Of Dorian Gray (Which I will now be making a prority to read), I really liked to see these characters brought together like a superhero group in the vein of Justice League Of America or The Defenders... Calling it an Xmen ripoff is kinda wrong, considering none of these heroes are mutants.
