League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Lavish action film about an elite team of Victorian superheroes, led by Sean Connery, secretly recruited by the British crown to stop a madman from triggering a world war. Despite an intriguing premise and imaginative effects, Stephen Norrington's comic book-inspired film is weighed down by tedious over-the-top action sequences that dissipate rather than enhance its otherwise escapist thrill-ride charm. Much action/adventure violence, some frightening supernatural effects with gore and a few instances of crude language with sexual innuendo. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
