January 5, 2004
Robinson and Norrington approach literature like lazy high schoolers in an English class, using the material when it suits them and ignoring it when it doesn't.

It seems as though the effects team was often sleeping on the job.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
July 11, 2003
Just when it seems about to become a real corker of an adventure movie, [the movie] plunges into incomprehensible action, idiotic dialogue, inexplicable motivations, causes without effects, effects without causes, and general lunacy.

July 11, 2003
With its lumbering, geriatric feel and turn-of-the-last-century fussiness, this League plays out like a large-print Reader's Digest version of The X-Men.

Let's end the suspense, shall we? This Sean Connery vehicle is not the summer blockbuster we hoped for.

July 16, 2003
Freaks and heroes from Victorian fiction team up in an adequate, somewhat muddled meta-fictional superhero flick.

It's fairly tough to enjoy popcorn entertainment when the words "WHY ARE THEY...?" and "WHAT THE HELL...?" are constantly cascading through your brain.

July 10, 2003
That an actor exec produced such a film is a sad commentary on where we stand in early-21st century filmmaking.
July 14, 2003
This film is odd, loud, unintentionally funny and quite awful.
July 12, 2003
With such strident resistance to hyperbolic, risk-taking absurdity, such a film can hardly ever aspire to rise above the ranks of the merely ordinary.
July 16, 2003
The actors are a mixed bag but honestly they're not really to blame as they try their best with what little material they've got from James Dale Robinson's utterly awful script.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
