In an alternate Victorian Age world, a group of famous contemporary fantasy, SF and adventure characters team up on a secret mission.

I am a big Connery fan, it is the only excuse I have for going to see this movie. I knew it was going to be bad, I didn’t even have to see the poor reviews it had already gotten, yet I went anyway. And it certainly lived down to my expectations. It was big and flashy and full of explosions and special effects and smart-ass quips thrown in after the good guys have beaten the bad guys. It was made up of everything a big-budget action movie should be, but that isn’t saying a whole lot, is it? This movie was a good premise, but it was doomed from the start. Rumors of on set tension between Connery and director Stephen Norrington, and delays getting the movie out the door were all bad omens from this film.

It was full of the typical action/adventure movie key plot points, so 15 minutes into the movie I already knew most of what was going to happen thanks to a few not so subtle hints and my extensive experience with this type of film. None of the performances were really worth watching, the special effects were remarkably unrealistic, and the script was full of cliché plot points and stale one-liners.

In the future I hope Connery will stick to decent films or just avoid making them altogether.
