A portrait seen in the background of one shot appears to be of a previous League, and corresponds to a similar portrait seen in the comic. This previous (1780s?) League consists, then, of: The Reverend Dr. Syn (created by Russell Thorndike), pirate and highwayman; Sir Percy Blakeney, the Scarlet Pimpernel (created by Baroness Orczy); Natty Bumppo/Hawkeye/Deerslayer/Leatherstocking, hero of "Last of the Mohicans" by James Fenimore Cooper); and Lemuel Gulliver, of "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift). Two female members appearing in the comic portrait - Lady Blakeney (from the Scarlet Pimpernel) and Fanny Hill (created by John Cleland) - are absent. See more »


When Hyde first transforms into Jekyll, before he collapses on the floor his pants are the right size for his Jekyll form. When he gets up, he has to hold up his now Hyde-sized pants. Later, when Jekyll transforms in the engine room, his pants and shoes remain intact even though his Hyde form is so much larger. See more »

21 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was very pleased with this movie. There are some who have claimed that those who enjoy this film have a low IQ. I see no reason why a person can't have a high IQ and enjoy an imaginative and fun film. For years I have enjoyed the works of Doyle, Wilde, Stevenson, Stoker, Twain, Haggard, Wells, Poe, and Verne. I went into this film hoping it would do their characters justice. It did. Some prefer the "original" versions of these characters by Alan Moore. I prefer the way they were written by their creators. The characters are closer to their literary selves in the film version than in the comic book. I was very happy about that. I grew up with these characters and they played a huge part in my childhood fantasy life. Other girls may have pretended to be Wonder Woman, but I was Captain Nemo! I was hoping that LXG captured the imaginative world that flourished in my young mind when I read all those old beloved books. LXG delivered! This is a fun escapist fantasy and all of my favorite literary characters are in great form. I had a truly wonderful time watching LXG. It's a fun adventure that requires that you bring your inner child along for the ride. My inner child loved it. I loved it too!
