Critic Reviews for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
... the effects and sets are marvellously fantastical and there are one or two neat comical allusions to the heroes' literary roots. But where's the excitement, the thrills, the tension, the style?
Without a strong, juicy villain -- one that we love to hate -- the film lacks an important ingredient.
This grouping of extraordinary egos brushes against the personality flaws and clashes that initially make the film intriguing, but then the film slips into a special-effects extravaganza with a monstrous, rampaging Mr. Hyde headlining.
Audience Reviews for The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Stemming from a highly intriguing concept from Alan Moore's graphic novel, Stephen Norrington assembles The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.Taking about 105 minutes to save the world, the plot line comes up a little flat, although not necessarily one to drag. The abundance of characters to follow is a highlight that keeps things on the move, despite some minor, yet sufficient, background for them.In the grand scheme of things, there isn't a whole lot that stands out about the action, but there is enough to qualify this as an action adventure. The CG is more than adequate, but not amazingly extraordinary.Sean Connery portrays a solid lead in Allan Quartermain. Peta Wilson, Shane West, and Richard Roxburgh, among many others, fill a recognizable supporting cast.A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen lacks some sophistication; however it gets by with its characters and concept.
A mind-blowing and adrenaline-pumping action-packed adventure with great special effects, great story, great characters and non-stop fun that fuel this sensational film. Sean Connery proves he can still save the day. A great and exceptional cast of talents. An incredibly fun and ultra thrilling movie. An exhilarating and breathtaking thrill-machine from start to finish. You will love it. It`s The Avengers of the 19th century with some of the most mesmerizing heroes, villains and anti-heroes of their time, and coming to our time with awesome force. A tremendously exciting good time that deserves a look or two.
