The year is 1886, when New England's fishing harbours are the scene for a "creature of unknown origin" destroying ships at sea. It is the job of Professor Pierre Aronnax, a marine expert, and Ned Land, the iron willed sailor, to learn the truth of the "monster" roaming the seas. The great novelist, Jules Verne, described this perilous journey to the darkest depths of the sea with Captain Nemo aboard the Nautilus. Written by

It is like pissing on Jules Vernes Grave. Nemo is just a simple maniac and Michael Cain lost every talent. Pierre Arronax is some kind of bad son who never find a way out of his fathers shadow (Verne never mentioned that. I wonder). Ned Land is a psycho. His only goal is to kill a whale. *sigh* Cabe Attucks is ... not a person created by Verne. And Nemos Daughter is... hey, wait a moment. What the f*** is going on. And where the hell is the whole relationship between Arronax and Nemo? They developed a very fine friendship despite the fact, that Arronax disapproved some actions Nemo undertook.
20,000 leagues under the sea is still after more the 100 years a fantastic book with a sense of wonder. But the film is simply bullshit.
