THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN (2003)

The league of Extraordinary Gentlemen also known as LXG is a superhero film loosely based on a comic. The story revolves around a team of extraordinary people chosen from great adventure literature like Alan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, The Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Agent Sawyer, vampiress Mina Harker from Dracula and a Dorian Gray. They are called to stop a villain who is turning the nations of the world against one another. The cast consists of Sean Connery, Naseeruddin Shah, Peta Wilson, Stuart Townsend, Tom Curran and many more. LXG is like a pre marvel multistar superhero movie. Critics did not respond well to this movie but the JTeam disagrees.


The movie has nearly child like CGI when compared to movies of this time but it has its own type of glamour and shine. The movie is surprisingly refreshing, one of the first to successfully showcase this multihero plotline. The movie has been called outright ordinary and loosely held but it isn`t, its a smartly directed movie with its ups and downs. LXG`s costumes, special effects and mind blowing acting from one of the best actors in the world make this quite a watch. Its really different than most movies in its genre and the acting by Sean Connery and Naseeruddin Shah make the movie stand apart the script though is a bit weak though. The movie has beautiful cinematography, its special effects and CGI are adequate for its time and the sets and props used in the movie are from a very different time but used very elegantly. This movie is a visual feast and still has much more than what meets the eye!


JRating: 7/10
