At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
Renowned adventurer Allan Quatermain leads a team of extraordinary figures with legendary powers to battle the technological terror of a madman known as "The Fantom". This "League" comprises seafarer and inventor Captain Nemo, vampire Mina Harker, an invisible man named Rodney Skinner, American Secret Service Agent Tom Sawyer, the ageless and invincible Dorian Gray, and the dangerous split personality of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
There were widespread rumors that Jason Isaacs was to play the part of British Agent Campion Bond. However, in an interview, Isaacs revealed he hadn't even read the script, and that all reports of him in the role were fabricated. See more »
In the widescreen edition DVD When Allan Quartermain (Sean Connery) is talking with Agent Sawyer (Shane West) just before the "shooting lesson" he tells Sawyer about his last mission for the crown. Quartermain says "I even took my son ALONG" but the close caption reads; "I even took my SON-IN-LAW". Later on including the very next sentence in that same scene, Quartermain says that it was his son (not son-in-law) whom he lost on his previous mission. See more »
My father was actually the one to rent this movie. I dragged him down to the rental place and came home empty handed. I didn't look at the plot once I saw Connery was in it. He's not a bad actor, I just don't really care one way or the other about him.
Then he came in that night and tossed it into my lap. "You'll like it" he said. And I read the back. The word VAMPIRE automatically caught my attention and I was hooked from that second onward. The movie isn't the greatest, I'll admit. But it's definately engaging. You can't take it too seriously as it's based on fictional characters and takes place in an alternate universe. But it's funny, and has wonderful moments in it for the ladies who go for the hotties, or the guys who go for the action!
