The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

I watched this film again today and my first impressions have not changed. It really misses the mark somehow. I don't quite know what to pinpoint, I really dislike all of the characters. The invisible man is particularly poor but then they all are, even the character Mina Harker wasn't very good. The casting of Sean Connery was good but he alone cannot carry a film, he's the most watchable character in the film I think, Dorian Gray is okay as well but not great. The plot is thin and the whole film seems to be built around some cheap special effects, or maybe they weren't cheap and this is where all the budget went-that and Connery's salary. I can't really recommend this film.
