Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Variety 07-14-2003 "..This highly elaborate venture offers some appealing elements..."
Sight and Sound 10-10-2003 "...Naseeruddin Shah makes a splendidly bearded Captain Nemo..."
Uncut 07-01-2005 "[W]hat's new is a complex BEING JOHN MALKOVICH-style plot which sees fictional Royston Vasey characters enter our world through a portal and torment their real-life creators….APOCALYPSE still manages plenty of hilarious moments."

Le dernier film de Sean Connery

La Ligue des gentlemen extraordinaires est le dernier film de Sean Connery et malheureusement, il nous laisse sur une note amère... Le film contient de bien belle animation, de beau decor, mais les acteur secondaire n'aide aucunement Sean Connery qui tien le role principale. Un film qui vaux quand même la peine d'être visionné, mais ne vous attendez pas au film de l'année.
