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.

So little of real consequence is at stake that you'll have plenty of time to notice how the names on not one but two tombstones are misspelled.

No matter how troubled the shoot was, the movie was shanghaied from the off, courtesy of Hollywood's dependence on market-defined 'success'.

... 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?

The problem with The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is the filmmakers tried to give everyone a main storyline and ended up diluting everything.

This one isn't for everyone, but it's still good in my book.

The League is a project that was doomed from the moment the studio threw out Alan Moore comic and decided that they knew better.

Quelques moments sont légèrement mieux et même intéressants, mais dans l'ensemble, vous allez complètement gaspiller votre argent et votre temps avec ce film.

Just don't think too much between the super battles. This is, after all, very comic book.

[Director] Norrington has spent too much effort trying to include too much of the comic book.

If you stripped this film of its effects, not even the platform would remain. Unplug the computer and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen disappears.

League ... isn't a great movie, but it provides more fun that a lot of the other mediocre superhero movies ...
