This group of superheroes must decide if they can trust each other and work as a team. While endeavoring to tackle such a monstrous task, the team must deal with dangers and demons of their past. Through a series of fascinating and mystifying scenes of heroic efforts, viewers will be glued to their seats in suspense and anticipation of the final outcome.

Dove Review

While Dove cannot award the Dove Seal to this film, I must say it contains some tremendous excitement and special effects.Sean Connery leads a bunch of “power endowed” people in an attempt to stop an evil tyrant from destroying the world. One of the “gentlemen” enlisted in none other that Captain Nemo. He takes them all aboard the Nautilus to catch this evil doer and this version of the sub is pretty cool. You see the invisible man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. and even a blood thirsty vampire. There is non-stop action and super effects that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
