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 commands a legion of superheroes, the likes of which mankind has never seen. Now, despite fighting their own personal demons - and each other - they must join forces to save the world. Sean Connery leads a stellar cast in this breathtaking, "spectacular fantasy" (Starburst) extravaganza loaded with "stunning special effects" (Daily Express).
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, the Invisible Man, Mina Harker (from Dracula), and the hunter Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery), all assembled to combat an evil megalomaniac out to conquer the world.
It's hardly an original plot, but perhaps that's fitting for a movie sewn together like Frankenstein's monster. It 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. It's flashy, dumb, and completely incoherent. Fans of the original comic book will be disappointed. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Taking its basis from the well known graphic novel of the same name this movie has a fascinating premise. What if the characters of Victorian literature were actually real people? What if technology that we take for granted now was suddenly thrust upon a world before their time. Thus, we have a bank robbery at the turn of the 20th century involving a tank. Machine gun toting villains tearing up an African country club. An automobile chasing through the streets of Europe and Jules Verne's Capt. Nemo (this time portrayed correctly as an Indian prince as he was in the novel) transporting our team of heroes in the submarine Nautilus.
Leading the group though is H. Rider Haggard's adventurer Allan Quatermain (played with spirit and gusto by Sean Connery). Also included among the ragtag group are the likes of the Invisible Man, Tom Sawyer (an addition to the cast of characters no doubt in an effort to help the movie sell to an American audience) and Dorian Gray.
The team must race across the continent of Europe in an effort to defuse what is fast turning into a growing conflict between the Great Powers. The villain (the Fantom) has designs on making a boatload of money selling high-tech weapons (by 19th century standards) to the competing nations - or is he...there is a surprising twist to the story that eluded me until I checked out the special features.
The narrative to this movie does seem a little muddled and at times it all appears a little too top-heavy with heroes.Read more ›
What you and I would like to know is; is this version Worthing buying?
I would say Yes & No.
Yes: If you like the outer case coming in steel which looks very cool,
then I would buy this version otherwise....
No: It offers nothing more that past DVD version have
offered and in fact this version offers a lot less for your money.
I would highly recommend you look at the Special Edition instead!
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Special Edition offers 2 discs
I would HIGHLY recommend that unless you like the steel case
this version is a much better value for your money to buy.
Offering both Dolby and DTS sound tracks and offering screen view in 2:35:1
with 17 deleted and extended scenes and much,
much more that this new Steel book case above dose not offer.
The film is still a cool film and i enjoy watching it everytime.
Thanks for reading +++
I had never read the "comic" books that the film is based on, so I came to the film with no preconceptions, and I enjoyed it for what it is - a family orientated adventure film.
We open with the dark cobbled streets of London in 1899 and a strange, never seen before, metal vehicle (we know to be a tank) is rolling through the streets and heading straight into the Bank of England, where a German scientist is kidnapped.
We move to Kenya, June 1899, where a man comes in search of the legendary hero Allan Quatermain. Except Quatermain (Sean Connery) is now jaded by his experiences and until attacked he wants nothing to do with the problems of the empire - only then does he agree to return once more to save the world.
July 1899 Quatermain arrives in London and is introduced to "M" (Richard Roxburgh - Van Helsing)) who explains that the villain of the peace is a man known as the "Fantom", and that over the centuries there have been groups of chosen men with special attributes who were known as "The League of Extra Ordinary Gentlemen" or "The League".
This League will be Quatermain, Captain Nemo (Naseeruddin Shah), Rodney Skinner aka the Invisible Man (Tony Curran - Underworld - Evolution), Mina Harker (Peta Wilson - ...Read more ›

It's an entertaining film if you ignore the plotholes and don't ponder how Captain Nemo's huge submarine could have navigated through the Thames and Venice...Published 3 months ago by Kristin
