The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
2003
To prevent a world war from breaking out, famous characters from Victorian-era literature, including Allan Quatermain, Dorian Gray, Tom Sawyer and Captain Nemo, band together to do battle against a cunning villain known as the Fantom.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

True, it has an underdeveloped villain, confusing editing in the action scenes, and some major continuity errors, but this is nowhere near the mess that the critics made it out to be. These old heroes are just as thrilling as they were a century ago, and any lover of the literature ought to be intrigued enough to enjoy it. There's a grandeur here, and a sly sense of humor, with references to other Victorian heroes. If it valued its characters over the explosions, I'd love a sequel.
