An utter travesty as an adaptation, but if viewed as a dieselpunk action romp in its own right, I've always found it to be good, solid fun. ( )

Book description
Product Description

Based on the graphic novel, literary characters meet up in New York at the turn of the 19th Century to battle criminal elements of the highest order.

When a masked madman threatens to launch a global Armageddon, legendary adventurer Allan Quartermain steps in with a legion of superheroes, the likes of which mankind has never seen, including Dorian Gray, Dracula's bride, Tom Saywer, Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll and an Invisible Man. Now, despite fighting their own personal demons - and each other - they must join forces to save the world.

Additional Features

All on a single disc, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen offers two commentary tracks, 12 deleted and extended scenes, and a 54-minute documentary. The track by the two producers and three of the actors is informative, but surprisingly interesting is the track by the film's technicians, particularly costume designer Jacqueline West, whose passion for her craft is infectious. Unfortunately, the film's two biggest selling points--the graphic novel that inspired it and the marquee star, Sean Connery--don't get sufficient attention. The documentary acknowledges the graphic novel but doesn't really discuss it, concentrating on examinations of the costumes and special effects (e.g., Mr. Hyde was done without CGI). Connery's involvement consists of a few sound bites at the beginning of some of the documentary chapters. He and producer Don Murphy explain that he turned down The Lord of the Rings and The Matrix because he didn't understand them, but even though he wasn't sure he understood LXG, he wasn't going to turn it down. --David Horiuchi
