Goofs

The "dive vests" worn by the actors are quite clearly modern SCUBA BCDs (buoyancy compensation devices). "Fastex" (side-release) type plastic buckles are seen at the shoulders; modern submersible pressure gauges and low-pressure inflator hoses dangle off to the left. See more »

A nice afternoon film
26 May 1999 | by (Woking, England) – See all my reviews

When I saw that this film was going to be shown on Channel 5 one afternoon, my first thought was why have I heard of this version before and where? I have to admit that the only reason I watched this film was to see Paul Gross as Ned Land. That is a reason to watch this film alone. It is not supposed to be believable but it was doing quite well until the giant seafish appeared and from then it went slightly downhill. Ben Cross as Captain Nemo is a wonderful baddie although you are left with the question is he that bad?
