Movie Reviews

Fun light-hearted series
Raymond Salazar | San Francisco,CA | 07/03/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Fun if you can take a joke - this follows a "shell" of Verne's masterpiece. My quibble is the personalities of the adult characters were not the same from episode to episode. Mama is tender,loving, understanding and helpless for three episodes, then a raging banshee for the next three. Neb, the former slave, is all helpful then decides to pick sides. Killing off major characters so close to the beginning of the series was puzzling (contract issues?). But a fun series - kinda like Lost in Space in Tahiti."
Mysterious Island
Pj Thorp | 09/24/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Great serialized plot, although somewhat different to Jules Verne's novel.
Capt Nemo is presented as a hidden recluse, toying with the island's castaways, using them as subjects for his rather pointless twisted experiments, all recorded with introductory phrase "Modification of human behaviour experiment number ..."
There is no escape from the island in the last episode, only betrayal, as the plot diverges as far as possible from the novel, possibly to pave the way for a second season. Though none was made.
Alan Scarf plays Capt Cyrus Harding to perfection, only a few years before his great performance in time travel sci-fi series "Seven Days."
If you're a Jules Verne fan, get these great prints, and enjoy."
Great - with stipulation
Ron Dean | Kountze, TX United States | 04/23/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Very good series, no sexual scenes, and no cursing that I recall. However, in the end it's about the triump of the 'human' spirit. Was disappointing in that regard. Because the truth is that Nemo is right all along, at least in the real world. To bad the writers were wrong.

Alan Scarfe is excellent, as always."
