This movie was amazing! Went to see it at the cinema when it first got released back in 2003. For the time the special effects in this movie are mind blowing. A must watch in my opinion.
‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ does nothing all that extraordinary but produces a fun time nevertheless. Great cast, fast paced plot and entertaining action. The ending slightly underwhelms, but I still found myself satisfied with it. The special effects are good, it’s only “The Nautilus” that looks less than so.
Sean Connery does carry the film as Quatermain, he’s terrific throughout – really enjoyed the way his character carries himself. I liked Tony Curran’s Skinner too. I actually rate all the characters to be honest, with Jason Flemyng (Jekyll/Hyde) and Stuart Townsend (Gray) being my picks of the rest.
Merits a watch, even if Connery didn’t remember it all that fondly.
Having been critically panned by both film critics and fans of the original comic book version, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (which is hardly a league of “Gentlemen” considering the presence of a female character) was absolute rubbish. However, despite the flagrant misuse of characters established in classic Literature (Dracula, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Invisible Man, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and especially The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) there is an essentially a massively fun film to be found, made all the more enjoyable if you disengage your brain and just don’t question the ridiculous goings on of the alternate Victorian universe the film is set in.
So in conclusion, if a night of brainless action adventure fun is what you’r after, then the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is sufficiently enjoyable material.
Entertainment purposes only–great escape
I think this was a terrific movie! It was definitely not “artistic,” though I heard Sean Connery was constantly fighting about the artistic “flow” or something, lol. No, it was purely an escape film. I was highly entertained. There was plenty of action, humor, a tiny shot of romance (real romance would have been severely misplaced), visual stunners, eye candy (Connery, of course, and Shane West…even though they’re a *cough* couple of generations apart), and more. There was a lot going on and not a whole lot of plot, but the fast pace was refreshing. The substance was in the attention to detail, subtle humor, and terrific performances.
My main complaint is the invisible man…he just didn’t seem to fit in really. He definitely had his moments, and seemed to be purely for comic relief, which worked fairly well. Of course they had to make the jester a hero, but hey, that’s why it’s called an escape. The other complaint is the often hokey dialogue. I mean really…”I’ve lived long enough to see the future become a past…” (or something similar–yes I’m paraphrasing). That’s not original criticism, I also saw that in newspaper review, but it’s definitely not the only example. I’m just not particularly good at remembering exact dialogue.
All in all, a movie worth seeing. If you’re not too excited about it, wait for the video, but the visual aspect of the movie (impressive wide shots, the huge “ship”) is enough for me to recommend plunking down the $6.50 (or whatever) and going to the theater. Just sneak in some homemade brownies and a juice box. 😛
