A Well-done Family Adaptation
28 June 2011 | by stripeythecrabSee all my reviews

Here we have, in my opinion, a fairly well-done, family-friendly adaptation of Jules Verne's classic novel "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." While keeping in accordance to the original plot line in most cases, this movie adds a female main character which is a nice addition that adds to the universal appeal that the directors were going for. The directors also added some of their own interpretation for the other characters. For example: Ned Land is black, and M. Arronax is not a Frenchman. The characters of Captain Nemo and Bernadette (the main female character) both display character development that, while not being anything that is Oscar-deserving, is pleasing to observe. This version of "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" combines the traditional story with some fresh perspectives blended with just enough humor to entertain children and adults alike. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good adventure!
