Trivia

While filming in Prague, the cast went to an Indian restaurant for lunch. The Indian proprietor recognized Naseeruddin Shah, called him by name, escorted the party to his best table, and waited on them personally. See more »

Goofs

When Quatermain and Sawyer are shooting off the Nautilus, the balls launched by the crewman are about a foot in diameter. The balls appear to land in water about 50 meters from the ship while Quatermain brags about shooting these at 500 meters or further. Had the balls been launched to 500 meters, they would have had to be much heavier to fly that far and would be barely visible as dots on the water, not as clearly and close as in the movie.

A graphic novel brought to the big screen.
10 July 2003 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

Based on the graphic novel of the same name (as noted in the credits), it's no surprise at all to see the movie using similar lighting, colours and action that one would expect to find in a comic book. The characters are engaging enough, thanks more to the special effects than the actors and the roles they were given. The far more interesting character of a drug-addicted, wasted Allan Quartermain was sadly watered into the "tragic hero" the Connery plays so well. Other characters were seemingly better played by their CGI counterparts than the actors supposedly playing them - but one should expect two-dimensional acting in a comic book, and that's exactly what you get. The action is exciting, and a bit intense, if almost too frenetic at times. It's difficult to see all the action at the speeds it's shown, especially with the numerous cutaways to other fights. Nemo's fights would have been among the most spectacular, had they been slowed down to a speed a normal human could see. Still the violence is great and appreciable, although with comic-book-like regularity, seldom fatal. If you're a Connery fan, you may find this passable, though not much different from his role in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Fans of the graphic novel will be sadly disappointed at the startling alterations of their characters, and of course, unsurprised by the "twist" in the middle. Still, it is an enjoyable (if long) two hours, and the attention to detail of the sets, costumes and scenery make it almost worth it alone.
