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
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.
