Goofs

The "dive vests" worn by the actors are quite clearly modern SCUBA BCDs (buoyancy compensation devices). "Fastex" (side-release) type plastic buckles are seen at the shoulders; modern submersible pressure gauges and low-pressure inflator hoses dangle off to the left. See more »

A beautifully mounted version of Jules Verne's classic. Unlike the Disney version of the fifties this one offers an understanding of Nemo's reasons for his actions. The photography was masterful and the music was sublime. Richard Crenna once again rises to the occasion and Ben Cross is outstanding as the master of the Nautilus. Julie Cox had not yet quite developed the excellence of performance that she would later with Children of Dune, but still brought much to her role as Sophie. It is true that there were a few weak spots in the storyline, but nothing that could deserve the negative reviews that I have read here. This Nemo was always true to who he set out to be, unlike James Mason's Nemo who too shallow. All in all a visual splendor.
