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.

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

Watching LXG is a lot like looking at a set of bad one-hour photos. Blurry, streaked, dark, and incoherent.

Every bit of this vastly entertaining production seems to be infused with the snap of real imagination. It's a wonderful piece of work.

The League of Extraordinary Gentleman is the most literate movie of the summer. How many summer movies reference Moby Dick and Around the World in 80 Days? Kids won't know the literature of Melville and Verne, but it sets the tone for

The film is decidedly more involving than [most of the other summer movie extravaganzas], holds more intriguingly original conceits, and--here's a refreshing change of pace--keeps its running time well below the two-hour mark.

Most studios aim for movies, particularly summer movies, that can be enjoyed by both kids and their parents. LXG can be enjoyed by children and ... their grandparents.

Works wonderfully as a popcorn picture.

All in all, just another summer's day at the multiplex. But the outlandish premise alone gives it a leg up on overly familiar scenarios about time-traveling robots, gamma radiation and the like.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Because it successfully marries great literary classics with contemporary comic books, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is in a summer movie league of its own.
