Sean Connery's last movie is...well, his last movie for a reason. The comic book flop gets a lot of hate and Nostalgia Critic takes a look at why. The NC reviews, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
Check out this week's charity - doctorswithoutborders.org/

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a 2003 steampunk-dieselpunk superhero action film loosely based on the first volume of the comic book series of the same name by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill.

It baffles me hollywood hasn't tried rebooting this. This movie would be perfect for a netflix or amazon original series.

As someone whose a History nerd who LOVES the Cold War like situation between Britain and Germany between the Franco-Prussian War and World War One over supremacy in Europe, I didn't know that this film touched on that. I might have to give this film a try sometime, my mom likes it. I also forgot that Fogg was the name of the main character in Around the world in 80 Days but that's because it's been awhile since I played 80 Days. I didn't know Sean Connery ACTUALLY turned down those role, I thought it was just a joke for the beginning. He may be my favourite Bond but he's just an idiot for doing that. I also didn't know that Alan Moore wrote the comic that this is based off of or that there's a character from Dracula called Mina (that would explain why Bunnicula's owner is called Mina).

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good. This movie would have been great if they had pulled at Avengers, instead of pulling a Justice League, or (God forbid) a The Mummy movie.

But... The movie portrays Mina Harker as an intelligent badass who ISNT in love with or being seduced by any vampires, which means this is the most book accurate film portrayal of her I've yet seen.

On paper, this movie was ahead of it's time. The Avengers of literature icons, 10 years before Marvel released the real thing. Can't really blame Connery for his choice. Bad luck

I realized 14:45 into this review that I actually watched this entire movie at some point, and somehow forgot literally all of it. Still not sure if it's a case of deja vu, or not.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN FOUNDATION ISN'T A GOOD BOOK?
Nostger Grrrssddc
Nostger Grrrssddc 23 days ago
@Paul Shannon That's kinda my point, a book can be interesting and worth while without necessarily being a "good" book. Besides, if I'm halfway though a book and someone asks me if it is a good book, an appropriate response is "How would I know, I haven't read it yet.".
Paul Shannon
Paul Shannon 23 days ago
@Nostger Grrrssddc i think the only real criticism is thay maybe Asimov's prose isn't exactly exciting, but that doesn't mean it's not a good book. Gustav Flaubert's Madame Bovary is a book of fiction he wrote specifically with a boring plot, but it's still an incredible book.

To be fair, Connery went for the projects that really did look better on paper A movie about dinosaurs where you play a minor role, the park owner - or a movie about a dragon where you get to play the main attraction itself A movie about kung fu fighting without gravity - or a movie based on an old popular tv series A movie adaptation of an old Tolkien trilogy directed by a nobody - or a movie starring "the Avengers of litterature figures" directed by a big name He did have some bad luck

The opening intro was so funny, it made me think Connery DID turn those roles in order to pass onto something else and that backfired. Pbbt! And I thought Daniel Daniel-Lewis was extremely choosy on what films he wants to do, only he made the right choices.

This film and The Untouchables are kind of like the same film in my eyes, seeing how both of Connery's characters participate in joining an undercover cult.

Actually I don't know anybody who didn't like dragonheart? It was a decent cgi flick for its time, the soundtrack was memorable and I pretty much enjoyed the storyline. Didn't actually know that it wasn't considered as a good movie up to this review.

Recently watch this with my family because my dad liked the movie. Thank god it didn’t have a sequel it was just so boring. Cool concept and I’m sure the comics are enjoyable but this? I just couldn’t follow the story nor did I care to.

so I guess no one's gonna point out how the entire opening skit about Sean Connery's agent is an aggressively shameless rip-off of CollegeHumor's Hollywood agent skits? LOL at least credit the original people once you're done stealing (uhhh I mean "homaging") their jokes, like you did with the Pitch Meeting guy...

I know this movie has some massive flaws but due to when it came out, I still has a place in my heart. I think the source material and concept was amazing and some of the casting choices and art detection were really good. Its just a shame it didn't receive the care it deserved in script writing and direction departments.

14:15 Critic, do you know ANYTHING about Venice? The canals are not deep enough for a submarine to stay underwater. Actually, if there's anything to critic about that scene, is that the canals might very well be too shallow for that big ass submarine to even enter them! Oh, and at 21:40 ... the guy wasn't his son, was never said to be his son, and was in no way referenced as being believed to be his son.

Did Connery seriously turn down all those roles? I really liked Dragonheart, but nobody could ever say it and the other two were better than the alternatives.

This is all while ignoring the content of the video itself. But nah go ahead and elaborate, at this point I'm fairly interested in how your going to link that with edge.

The name M was from bond yes. They took that from the comics and in the comics every charakter is a charakter of a known novel like the league itself. And so yes its Moriaty in the comics but like I said it's part of the Stil that each Charakter is taken from known novels. I hate that movie but the first 2 comics are 2 of my favorite comics

No, actually. If he is t ruly the invisible man, you SHOULDN'T see through him. Because either he made his ENTIRE self invisible - in which case, you would see everything that is within him, including the bladder filling up and his digestive tract - but he'd be completely useless, OR, which is the much more likely explanation, he made his own cells REFRACT the light around himself, so he APPEARS invisible - i.e. the light doesn't catch on him and doesn't reflect him, but what's behind him. Like sending light around you instead of reflecting it. In the latter case, everything that goes beneath his skin becomes invisible, too.
