Sadly, the rot sets in just over the halfway mark when the action loses its identity of fustian heroism and degenerates into another arcade video game of mundane destruction. A pity.

A stiff.

... 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?

Destined to go down in the history books as the Heaven's Gate of superhero flicks, this is nothing more and nothing less than an extraordinary waste of time and money.

It's the marriage of Hollywood's least attractive couple -- parsimony and greed.

Despite Sean Connery and some impressive 19th century gloom, this big-screen translation of Alan Moore's culty comic-book series falls to earth with an incoherent splat.
July 15, 2003
Even if, per Wilde, all art is quite useless, it need not be quite as useless as this.
July 14, 2003
This film is odd, loud, unintentionally funny and quite awful.
July 11, 2003
This isn't a blend of modern and classic so much as a collision.
July 11, 2003
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen just plain reeks.
July 11, 2003
This is awfulness of an utterly assembly-line nature.

The movie, alas, isn't extraordinary at all; it's just dull, a little mystifying, and more than a little cheesy.
July 11, 2003
The League is a movie to enjoy, then to root for and finally to be disappointed by.
July 11, 2003
Except for Connery, who is every inch the lion in winter, nothing here feels authentic.
July 11, 2003
Ill-conceived, sloppily directed, shoddily acted, LXG looks like the work of a confederacy of dunces.
July 11, 2003
Works wonderfully as a popcorn picture.
July 11, 2003
A concept whose promise is never quite fulfilled.
July 11, 2003
Suspension of disbelief is as necessary as popcorn when approaching a summer comic-book movie, but LXG is too preposterous even for this fantastical genre.
July 11, 2003
In a summer of big-budget sequels, prequels, remakes and homages, no film is more ambitiously derivative -- or dramatically unsatisfying -- than Stephen Norrington's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
