Goofs

In the Kenyan bar fight, Quatermain pushes one of the armored men into a rhino horn on the wall. The horn goes straight through the man's back and comes out of his chest. This should not happen as the armored vest should have blocked the passage of the horn. See more »

James Bond (on acid) in the nineteenth century
10 January 2004 | by rps-2See all my reviews

Okay. It's an interesting idea for a movie. Choose famous characters from Victorian literature and weave them into a story thats part fantasy, part comedy, part adventure. And it's well done. Very well done. But it becomes tedious after the first few explosions of special effects and outbreaks of fistfights, swordfights and gunfights. Maybe it's sensory overload but after an hour I started looking at my watch. The kids probably will like it. It's almost a movie comic book and the violence is of the BAM BASH KAPOW variety with more fun than fury. You almost expect to see those little dialogue baloons over the characters. And of course anything with Sean Connery in it is worth seeing. He gets better as he gets older.
