I like this one simply because of Mina Harker. Everyone's doing reboots, why not this one?

Pretty pictures. Terrible movie. Especially when compared with the comic.

A huge disappointment. Completely miscast, horrendous writing & effects. A complete bomb.

I was not a fan... just didn't live up to my expectations a bit
Very different sci-fi and enjoyable for that... good actors and characters

Love this fantastical movie. Ingenious. This genre is not explored enough.

Every now and then I got to put this movie back on

Doesn't live up to its source material at all. Decent if you haven't read it though.
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a superhero film adaptation loosely based on characters from the comic book limited series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore, who is also famous for Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and From Hell. It was released on July 11, 2003, in the United States, and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It was directed by Stephen Norrington and starred Sean Connery, Naseeruddin Shah, Peta Wilson, Tony Curran, Stuart Townsend, Shane West, Jason Flemyng, and Richard Roxburgh.
It is an action adventure film set in the late 19th century, featuring an assortment of fictional literary characters appropriate to the period, who act as Victorian Era superheroes. It draws on the works of Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, Bram Stoker, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. Rider Haggard, Ian Fleming, Herman Melville, Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Allan Poe, Gaston Leroux, and Mark Twain, albeit all adapted for the film. The plot and general atmosphere are very far...
