Trivia

While the film contains numerous allusions to literary characters and places, the original comics were so thick with them that many web pages were devoted to panel-by-panel breakdowns of annotations. See more »

Goofs

Tom Sawyer says that he is from the "American Secret Service". However, the correct name of the agency is the "United States Secret Service", not the "American Secret Service" and this is not a mistake many agents would make (especially since the acronym for "American secret service" would be "ASS", and no self respecting secret agent would admit that he is an agent of "ass").

Commands a knowledge of the characters
17 March 2005 | by tennyocelestiaSee all my reviews

To fully enjoy this movie, it really takes a previously established knowledge and respect for all the players involved. Having read all of the stories that are pulled together, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. There were two big problems: It went much too fast, even in the beginning, and M was not depicted as being cool, calculating and maniacal enough.

So, if you enjoy reading and would like to look at this movie with a better view, read: The Allan Quartermain books, the Sherlock Holmes books, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, A Picture of Dorian Grey, Dracula, 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, and The Invisible Man.
