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

Awesome movie!
9 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Are you guys kidding me? This movie was awesome! Yes, the acting wasn't so great and the ending was flat, but I really enjoyed this movie! I think Lochlyn Monro does a wonderful job of portraying a civil war captain. Props to him. I know it doesn't go by the book, but for a new twist in a movie, they did a great job. It's surprisingly safe for families, but interesting enough to keep the older ones included. Also some humor thrown in there and a small romantic touch keeps things moving forward. All I can say is hands down one of my favorite movies of the year. I know, sounds crazy. I only wish they went for a bit more romance. For me and my family it's a classic.
