Mythical creatures from the world of books have to band together to defeat the world’s most diabolical criminal. Alan Quatermain, Dorien Gray, Mena Harker, Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Tom Sawyer and The Invisible Man are called together by the mysterious “M” to stop a bomb in Venice. As they work together, they start to realize that things aren’t what they seem, and that they will need to stick together like nothing before.
This movie is set in 1900, which is a weird time for all the really cool stuff going on in this movie. Despite the coolness of the characters themselves, Captain Nemo’s ship is SUPER AWESOME. If you look close enough, it actually looks like a whale.
I don’t remember this movie getting very good reviews, but it has always been a favorite of mine. All the different bookish characters in one movie is just very cool. I think the only thing that could have made it cooler is if Sherlock Holmes was part of the team.
I can’t say too much about this movie without spoiling it, but I would love to know if you have seen this movie, and what you thought of it! Even if you hated it, I think the discussion would be fun!
