Stephen Norrington's THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN begins in 1899 London where, due to some cataclysmic events in England and Germany, the world is on the brink of war. Mycroft Holmes (Richard Roxburgh) is sent by the British government to round up various figures from Victorian-era literature in an attempt to find some solution. First on the list is explorer Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery), quickly installed as leader of the ramshackle outfit. Among the plethora of mythical figures joining Quatermain are The Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Jekyll and Hyde, Dorian Gray, and many others. Initially the League are sent to Prague to prevent a series of bombs from exploding, causing some spectacular set pieces as the merry band of rogues use all their special skills to fend off the evil forces. This is only the start of their journey however, and there are plenty of surprises for these courageous battlers, not least when they discover who is really behind all the chaos they have tried so hard to control.
Working with material from comic book veteran Alan Moore (who also penned FROM HELL), director Norrington (BLADE) draws on some interesting traits and legends from his characters, such as Dorian Gray's painting and Dr. Jekyll's potion. Making sure each member is far from infallible, Norrington paints a sympathetic portrait of flawed heroes battling against the odds, with some spectacular action sequences, and humorous asides.

It was kind of bland tbh And the end was rubbish, Was hoping to see him go on into the future/present time obv not,

(cough) yeah sherlock later for me also.

League of Ext Gents is not a bad film - but it could have been so much better. It's a great idea and there are some good effects, but the story lets it down big-style - holes so big you could drive a bus through.

I wouldn't say it is BAD, its a fun sunday afternoon type film and at £2.99 a fair price

It is a bad film, it's not even average. It's got an average rating of 4/10 on rotten tomatoes and 5/10 maybe be half way, but it isn't the average score.

So bad that it put Sean Connery off acting.

I think this was the best movie ever:thumbsup:
ONLY JOKING IT IS RUBBISH:p:shock::shock::shock:
Good price

Never seen it so can't comment, but then was put off by the bad reviews it got when it first came out and didn't wish wasting my time to find out for myself.

But why has it got a woman in the team when it's the Extraodinary League of Gentlemen?

In the books, the group of men are under the charge of Mina Harker. So much of the film doesn't make any sense thanks to the producers.

This film was Sean Connerys swansong. Poor *******
