10 films that should've been good. But weren't

Posted by , 25 April 2009

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

What it’s about:
In an alternate 1899, legendary adventurer Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery) must locate a team of wacko superheroes, mad enough to defeat the megalomaniac villain, Fantom, from starting a world war.

Why it failed:
This was to be a superhero like no other… sure. The comic book caper didn’t really translate to film, which was over plotted. However, we were ready to be blinded to all that, if the special effects were extraordinary. They weren’t. And once again we were disappointed that we’d spend in excess of five English pounds to see such drivel.

Saving Grace:
Poor old Connery couldn’t see the big flop coming and to be fair did his best to save the film. But not even Bond could revive this one.
