Epic Jules Verne !!!
2 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This TV series, which was loosely based on the Jules Verne novel "The Mysterious Island", was extremely good, and even though it is a rewrite from the original story of castaways, it is quite dark, thrilling, and mysterious.

All the characters featured in the series were complex, and totally full of depth, which gave this production a very good standard of acting. The props and sets were wonderful, with Captain Nemo's submarine "Nautilus" being the most spectacular of all locations on the island, with its cold grey riveted interiors, and an exterior that, although mostly unseen, resembles the Disney submarine in many ways. The atmosphere of the series was extremely gripping, and it almost made you sweat when something bad was going to happen! Overall, I would definitely recommend it to any Jules Verne fan, or to someone who loves a good TV drama. Its excellent!!
