The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen

It definitely is low on logic and a gripping plot but it is high on entertainment which can easily pass on as one of the guilty pleasures section.

"If you can't do it with one bullet, don't do it at all."

The year is 1899 and a man known as "M" gathers together a group literary characters for a mission designed to prevent a world war. Participants include: Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, and Dr. Henry Jekyll (with Mr. Hyde tagging along).

I have friends who love The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but I don't get it. I've seen this film twice now and on each occasion, I was bored out of my mind. To me, the movie is a dull mess of ideas that never really work. There's too much bad CGI, too many poorly lit action sequences, and a monotonous color palette that doesn't extend beyond gray. The gathering of characters seems to be more important than the mission. It takes about half the film to get them all together. And it's all done in a smug, condescending sort of way that gets annoying real fast. I know who these characters are - I don't need an extended exposition on each one. It's insulting. And speaking of insulting, I can't believe what the writers forced Sean Connery to say and do. He has some really embarrassing moments. None more so than when he's forced to pantomime throwing the invisible man out of his room. As I said, it's embarrassing for a man of his stature. Overall, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a waste of time with few redeeming qualities. I'm not surprised that Connery decided to hang it up after starring in this disaster.

The League of Extraordinary Stupidity

In an alternate steam-punk universe in the Victorian era, a group of famous fictional characters unite on a mission to prevent a worldwide war. These characters include Captain Nemo, the vampiress Mina, the Invisible Man, American secret agent Tom Sawyer, Dorian Gray, and Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde, led by adventurer and explorer Allan Quatermain.

The special effects range from decent to bad, the storyline is too linear and predictable despite having a twist halfway through, dreadful dialogues and too many stupid situations that defy logic even in a fantasy world logic. Lots of noise and explosions, hardly serves to entertain, and then easily forget.

For those who know the particular canon stories of these mythical characters, it is sad to see the treatment given to them in this film, just plain sad (if you are a fan of some of this characters you may even get angry), and even more sad that this is Sean Connery last movie before retirement, because he deserved much better than this.
