Storyline

A cinematic adaptation of Jules Verne's 1874 novel "The Mysterious Island", the story begins during the American Civil War, as famine and death ravage the city of Richmond, Virginia. Five northern POWs make the decision to escape the war by hijacking a hot air balloon! Drifting through the night, they wake to find themselves marooned on a desert island, but they aren't alone... Littered with wreckage, the island is home to cast of survivors who have been lost in space and time, including Jules and Abby Fogg, two young women from modern times who become stranded while flying over the Bermuda Triangle. Faced with defending themselves against vicious pirates, terrifying creatures, and an active volcano that's ready to blow, they must find a way to survive and escape the island. Hope only comes when they encounter the island's oldest resident, Captain Nemo himself. With his help, they set to work crafting an escape... but will they make it in time before the island claims them forever? Written by Anonymous

Awful!!!
10 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't care if this was made for TV or not. I think it is a crime to take a great story and butcher it the way this director did. I am a big fan of the 1961 version, and only stumbled upon this movie because they sent the wrong movie, I had ordered the version with Patrick Steward as Nemo, but instead I got this version. The Movie is obviously made for TV, the acting in so bad, I thought I was watching a Mexican soap opera. As the movie started, it seamed to follow the original story line, But after the balloon took to the air, the plot took a 180 degree turn for the worst.Some of the acting was OK, but The girl with the bad leg, looked like she studied Monty Pythons silly walks, to prepare for her part. The creatures were laughable, the almost looked like they used the costumes from Time machine, (the warlocks). It wasn't till Nemo showed his face that I realized this isn't the movie I ordered, and as I could no longer watch, and my girlfriend already left the room, I just stopped it, never finishing. If you like the 1961 version as I do, the don't see this movie, just watch the original.
