Once landing on an island, the group finds they are surrounded by danger from giant insects and gold-craving pirates. Turned away by the only safe haven on the island, owned by Captain Nemo, played by Sir Patrick Stewart, the group is forced to find shelter and survive.

As with most movies and television shows, no one seems to have any conception of how heavy gold is. The treasure involves two chests, one small and one large. The actor varies the effort he uses to move the small chest. At one point he seems to act as if it were more than he could bear, but he is also seen trying to lift and carry the two stacked chests. Gold is 19.3 times heavier than water. That small chest filled with real gold would be too heavy for one man to carry, and a lone individual could not even drag the large chest filled with gold.
