Product Description

Product Description

Based on Jules Vern's classic novel, MYSTERIOUS ISLAND is the story of five men escaping from a Confederate prison in an observation balloon. When they land the balloon, they find themselves on a South Seas island where they encounter pirates, a giant bird, a giant crab and even Captain Nemo.

Amazon.ca

Jules Verne's classic adventure is perfectly matched with Ray Harryhausen's timeless movie magic in Mysterious Island. Based on Verne's sequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, this rousing Civil War-era fantasy begins when a band of Union war prisoners (and one Confederate straggler) escape in a hot-air balloon, which crash-lands on the titular island of mystery. Verne's novel doesn't include any gigantic creatures, but Harryhausen's version--under the capable direction of genre specialist Cy Endfield--features giant oysters, bees, a prehistoric Phororhacos (a giant chickenlike bird!), an undersea cephalopod, a giant crab, and enough danger to keep its resourceful ensemble on constant alert. Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom, ably filling James Mason's shoes) is a third-act hero, pursuing an ill-fated dream to save humanity from hunger and war. The action may be too intense for younger viewers, but Endfield's pacing and Harryhausen's stop-motion mastery make Mysterious Island a wondrous precursor to Harryhausen's follow-up classic, Jason and the Argonauts. --Jeff Shannon

'Mysterious Island' is a wonderfully hokey old movie made as a sequel of sorts to Disney's '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea'. This time round, though, Captain Nemo is played—and I think rather well—by Herbert Lom. The unchallenging plot is replete with such set-pieces as the American civil war, an unlikely balloon flight, a giant crab, refloating a shipwreck, pirates and the obligatory volcano disaster, with all the creature FX being handled by the ever-wonderful Ray Harryhausen. As a sequel to its predecessor it's really not that great, but as a movie in its own right it's pretty good. Give it a watch and enjoy it for what it is, but don't set your expectations too high. :-)

For the connoisseur, this is the weaker version of the Mysterious Island films, but a good one nonetheless. Unsure why Herbert Lom was cast, he is terrible in this movie, so out of place from Italian slashers or Inspector Dreyfus. Special effects from Harryhausen are quite fun to enjoy though. Kind of funny without intending to be.

BEWARE. This dvd cannot be played in North America, only Europe. They do not say this nor do you they say where the dvd is coming from. After I received it and could not play it, I contacted the seller and they refunded my money very fast.

I just finished reading the book and since I have never seen the movie, thought I would by it.
I enjoyed it very much, although it was a little different story line then the book.
I am glad I purchased it for my collection. Delivery was very fast and DVD was in excellent condition.

Mysterious Island was always a favorite Harryhausen film of mine as a kid. The screenplay and direction (like those for The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and The Argonauts)is top notch. Director Cy Endfield has a solid cast and the pacing along with Bernard Herrmann's classic score creates an eerie and, well, mysterious feeling for most of the movie. The stand out in the cast is, of course, the marvelous and under rated Herbert Lom as Captain Nemo. If you haven't seen the film, I'd rather not spoil the third act of the film for you so won't go into too much detail.
The Civil War is tearing America apart. A small group of Union soldiers and a reporter escape a military prison during the seige of Richmond, Virginia. They also have a There's a scouting balloon just outside the prison walls. As the attack rages, the prisoners escape in the balloon. They are washed up ashore on an uncharted island with a brewing volcano.
It's not ordinary island (no surprise)though as they discover a giant crab and later, giant bees, chickens and other creatures. They're joined in their Robinson Crusoe adventure by a couple of women who are later washed ashore from a shipwreck. They soon discover the origin of the giant beasts and some nasty news about the volcano as well.
The cast gives a good performance. Gary Merrill (best known for All About Eve and former husband of Betty Davis) and Michael Callan are the most recognizable faces. Callan was a regular in a number of movies and television shows as a supporting actor. Joan Greenwood also gives a convincing performance as well. Still, the stand out here is the brooding performance as Herbert Lom. Lom always managed to raise the bar in any film he appeared in.

Unfortunately, I am unable to play your DVD in Canada as it is not compatible with our North American system. I don't know why you would ship something from the United Kingdom knowing this. I am very disappointed.
