Movie Info

Michael Anderson directed this TV movie version of Jules Verne's oft-adapted science fiction classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Richard Crenna stars as Henry Aronnax, a marine biologist, who, along with his crew, must confront the maniacal genius Captain Nemo (Ben Cross), helmsman of the Nautilus. Paul Gross and Julie Cox also star. This film should not be confused with the other 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea TV movie that aired the same year and starred Michael Caine and Patrick Dempsey.

Audience Reviews for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Weak acting, unconvincing sets and special effects all left this TV remake of a classic Disney film dead in the water.

Blah with a dull lead actress.

It?s certainly not the best of the many versions of this story. There are some okay special effects but the cast is just way too bland to make this work. It?s nothing special, watchable but quickly forgotten.
