Full Plot

Renowned adventurer Allan Quatermain leads a team of extraordinary figures with legendary powers to battle the technological terror of a madman known as "The Fantom." This "League" comprises seafarer/inventor Captain Nemo, vampiress Mina Harker, an invisible man named Rodney Skinner, American secret service agent Tom Sawyer, the ageless and invincible Dorian Gray, and the dangerous split personality of Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde. Anonymous In this adventure, the Fantom is trying to start a World War, and be at the head of it. The Fantom has highly superior weapons to the normal weapons of that day, and he also has extreme cunning, as we see by his tricking the countries into suspecting each other for war-mongering. A supposed loyalist to her Majesty's Empire is sent to fetch Allan Quatermain in an effort to track down the group who is trying to start the war. In a private and secret meeting, Quatermain meets who he is to be teaming up with on this mission. He is accompanied by Captain Nemo, Mina Harker, Rodney Skinner, Dorian Gray, Tom Sawyer, and Dr. Henry Jekyll (also Mr. Edward Hyde). Soon into their adventure they discover that the Fantom is behind these attacks, but there is more to this war than battle and cunning. Micah Jones It's 1899 and 'The Fantom' is trying to start a World War. The job of preventing this from occurring is given to Allan Quatermain. During the briefing with 'M', Quatermain discovers that he will be working alongside a host of various characters, from the Invisible Man and Captain Nemo to Dorian Gray and Dr. Henry Jekyll). Together, they are the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. FilmFanUk Plot not found

Quotes

Tom Sawyer: Boy. They told me European women had funny ways. Allan Quartermain: Jekyll, come on! We'll need Hyde! Dr. Henry Jekyll: No! Hyde will never use me again. Dorian Gray: Then what good are you? Marksman #2: What are you? Dorian Gray: I'm complicated. [Chasing Moriarty, Tom Sawyer bumps into an invisible man] Tom Sawyer: Skinner? [to Quatermaine] It's okay! It's Skinner! [to the invisible man] What the hell are you doing here? Sanderson Reed: What makes you think I'm Skinner, huh? Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Oh, chemist, eh? Do we get to blow something up, then? Mina Harker: Not Gray. He's lived long enough. Allan Quatermain: Ah, you're missing a picture, Mr. Gray. Dorian Gray: And you don't miss a thing, do you, Mr. Quatermain? Allan Quatermain: Oh, sometimes. Mina Harker: A man who worships death. Can we trust him? Allan Quatermain: He's not the one I'm worried about. Allan Quartermain: Well, we were the faster, but now we're the tortoise to his hare. Dr. Henry Jekyll: So, we're done? Tom Sawyer: No, we're alive. If M has any idea to the contrary, that gives us an edge. Captain Nemo: The sea is vast, he could be anywhere. Tom Sawyer: Yeah, well, I'm an optimist, now maybe that's a crime to you twisted so-and-so's but it keeps me from going crazy. Mina Harker: Your optimism's out of place. Tom Sawyer: You're wrong! Because we'll get out, man... at least, I will. That other agent I told you about... was my childhood friend. We were agents together until the Fantom shot him dead. Now you can be done, but I am not. I will avenge his death. Dr. Henry Jekyll: It's not about any one of us, Tom, it's bigger than that. Tom Sawyer: Yes, it is, Jekyll! The fate for the world is in our hands... the world! So M tricked you, he brought you all together and you walked straight into his trap. But the way that I see it, that's the part he did wrong... He brought you together. Dr. Henry Jekyll: He has a point. Allan Quartermain: And the boy becomes a man... perhaps a leader of men. Mina Harker: And Women. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): That's the last time I ever play with matches. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): And they'll provide an antidote... well, that's if I'm a good boy. Allan Quatermain: And are you a good boy? Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): I guess you'll find out, won't you? Dorian Gray: Mina. You're alive. Mina Harker: It's possible I can't die. Same could be said of you. Let's put it to the test. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): OW. You scratched me. Dorian Gray: Better me than him. Dorian Gray: Ah. The bedroom, Mina. Does it give you memories? Or ideas? Mina Harker: Ideas. [She stabs him in the groin] Dorian Gray: [gasping] If that had been permanent, I'd have been very upset! M: You could stay, you know. Share my dream. Dorian Gray: I've lived long enough to see the future become history, Professor. Empires crumble. There are no exceptions. M: You think you're better than me. You forget: I've seen your painting. Mina Harker: You broke my heart once. This time you missed. Allan Quatermain: If you can't do it with one bullet, don't do it at all. Sanderson Reed: Where is your sense of patriotism? Allan Quatermain: [stands up with a drink] God save the Queen. [the other patrons of the club mutter an apathetic return to the toast] Nigel: God save her. Allan Quatermain: [to Reed] That's about as patriotic as it gets around here. Allan Quatermain: Automatic rifles. Who in God's name has automatic rifles? Elderly Hunter: Dashed unsporting. Probably Belgian. Sanderson Reed: They're indestructible. Allan Quatermain: No, just armor-plated. Mina Harker: You're sweet... and you're young. Neither are traits that I hold in high regard. Mina Harker: Do you realize what you've done? What you've let out of me? Dorian Gray: A woman's wrath? Oh, I'm petrified. M: How many times do I have to kill these cretins? Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Allow me to introduce myself. Rodney Skinner, gentleman thief. Now, I thought invisibility would be a boon to my work. Well, you can imagine, it was my undoing. Once you're invisible, it's bloody hard to turn back. Dorian Gray: I'm an immortal, sir, not a gazelle. How can we outrun this? [Tom Sawyer brings out Nemo's car] Tom Sawyer: Care for a spin? Allan Quatermain: Now, would you like to learn to shoot? Tom Sawyer: I can already. Allan Quatermain: Oh, I saw. Very American. Fire enough bullets and hope to hit the target. Dorian Gray: I hoped I'd get to nail you one more time. Didn't think it'd be literally. Dorian Gray: Bomb-voyage. [Mina jumps and gasps like something just grabbed her behind] Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): I've been waiting all week to do that. Allan Quatermain: Get a grip, man. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Well, I thought I just did. [Mina slaps him] Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Oooh, Mina... Captain Nemo: Report. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): Well, hello to you, too. And need I remind you, I am naked in the snow. I can't feel any of my extremities. And I mean... any of them. Sanderson Reed: There is great unrest. Countries set at each other's throats, baying for blood. It's a powder-keg. The trouble of which I speak could set a match to the whole thing: War. Allan Quatermain: Wi-With whom, exactly? Sanderson Reed: Everyone. A world war. Allan Quatermain: That notion makes you sweat? Sanderson Reed: Heavens, man. Doesn't it you? Allan Quatermain: This is Africa, dear boy. Sweating is what we do. [Clanging metal sounds from inside Nautilus] Tom Sawyer: What is it? Captain Nemo: The sound of treachery. Captain Nemo: Contain your evil, Doctor. I'll not have the brute free upon my ship. Must I take drastic steps? Dr. Henry Jekyll: I am in control. Captain Nemo: I very much doubt it. Dr. Henry Jekyll: Your talk is all well and good, sir... but your own past is far from laudable. Allan Quatermain: I may have been overly rude earlier... when I called you a pirate. Captain Nemo: And I may have been overly charitable... when I said I wasn't. But I try to live in the now... where the ghosts of old wrongs do not abide. [after throwing the invisible man out of his room] Allan Quatermain: Skinner, I want you dressed at all times, eh? Or it's my boot up your arse. M: You can't kill the future. Dr. Henry Jekyll: Let's not make a saint out of a sinner. Next time he may not be so helpful. Nigel: Perhaps I should toddle off, should I, Allan? Allan Quatermain: Yes, of course, Nigel. You toddle off. Nigel: Toddling. [Dorian and Mina, both immortals, are fighting] Dorian Gray: We'll be at this all day. Sanderson Reed: But you're Allan Quatermain. Stories of your exploits have thrilled English boys for decades. Allan Quatermain: That I know. And Nigel has done a grand job reminding me. But... with each past exploit I've lost friends, white men and black... and much more. And I'm not the man I once was. Mina Harker: I'm not much of a drinker. [to Tom Sawyer] Allan Quatermain: May this new century be yours, son, as the old one was mine. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): So, how did M get you? Allan Quatermain: None of your business. Mina Harker: You're a little testy, Mr. Q. Allan Quatermain: Mrs. Harker, I doubt if you measure danger the way I do. Mina Harker: And I imagine you with quite the library, Mr. Quatermain. All those books you must have read merely by looking at their covers. Allan Quatermain: I've had women along on past exploits, and found them to be, at best, a distraction. Mina Harker: Do I distract you? Allan Quatermain: My dear girl, I've buried two wives and many lovers... and I'm in no mood for more of either. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): You can send 'em my way. Allan Quatermain: Skinner, shut up. M: James Moriarty? The so-called Napoleon of crime? That man died at Reichenbach Falls. He died, and I was reborn. Captain Nemo: We have trouble. Mr. Hyde: Trouble? I call it sport. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): This is a charming spot. Does Jack the Ripper live here? M: I hope I've got your fire when I'm your age. Allan Quatermain: You will not live beyond today. That I promise you. Captain Nemo: [Seeing the Dante-Beast] What is that thing? Mr. Hyde: It's me on a bad day. Mr. Hyde: Don't be afraid. Tom Sawyer: Who says I'm afraid? Mr. Hyde: YOU DO! [In an eyeblink he rips a chain from the wall and sends it flying over Sawyer's head] Mr. Hyde: YOU STINK OF FEAR! Sanderson Reed: The Empire needs you. Allan Quatermain: But the question is, do I need the Empire? M: They've discovered these attacks are all the work of one man who calls himself the Phantom Allan Quatermain: Very operatic. And what's in it for him? M: Profit. Captain Nemo: This is my first mate. Ishmael: Call me Ishmael, please. Marksman #1: Draw your pistol. Captain Nemo: I walk a different path. [Draws his sword and attacks, successfully] M: To that end, I set my wolf among you sheep. Dorian Gray: Growl. Captain Nemo: You underestimate the Nautilus. You underestimate her greatly. Allan Quatermain: [sniffs air] He's afraid. Tom Sawyer: [sniffs air] I don't smell anything. Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): And I thought I was special. You're invulnerable to harm. Dorian Gray: I don't like to boast. Edward Hyde: Yes, Henry. Look, but don't touch. That's your way. Dr. Henry Jekyll: Just shut up. I won't be tricked again. Edward Hyde: Tricked? You've known what I was about each time you drank the formula. Dr. Henry Jekyll: Liar. I am a good man. Edward Hyde: Who's lying now? You want it, even more than you want her. Dr. Henry Jekyll: No. Edward Hyde: You can't shut me out forever. Drink the elixir. Dr. Henry Jekyll: No. Edward Hyde: She barely even looks at you... Dr. Henry Jekyll: Be quiet. Edward Hyde: SHE LOOKED AT ME. Allan Quatermain: I don't like theatrics. M: After Africa's veldts, London's climate isn't affecting your mood, I see... Allan Quatermain: Identify yourself. M: I am known by many names, Mr. Quatermain. My underlings call me Sir. My superiors call me M. Allan Quatermain: M? M: Just M. M: To the death. But you'll need Hyde to make it mine. Allan Quatermain: He'll be making his own fight. Rodney Skinner (the Invisible Man): Oh, scotch anyone? Dorian Gray: Help yourself. Mina Harker: Don't let it ruin your makeup. Captain Nemo: I'm impressed, Mr. Gray. You take Skinner's uniqueness in your stride. Dorian Gray: Well, I've seen too much in my life to shock easily. [Quatermain pulls Sawyer out from under some falling rubble] Allan Quatermain: Heh. That was naughty. Tom Sawyer: Thanks. Allan Quatermain: Eyes open, boy. I can't protect you all the time. [Sawyer pushes Quatermain out of the way of a thrown knife] Tom Sawyer: Look out! [they both fall over] Tom Sawyer: [smiling] Eyes open, boy. I can't protect you all the time! Mina Harker: [imitating Quatermaine] This hunt is too dangerous for a woman, even one such as you. Leave it to me. [Deflecting an enemy's bullets] Mr. Hyde: IS THAT ALL YOU'VE GOT? Rodney Skinner (the Invisible Man): Hello, Dorian. The great white hunter's bagged his prize. [they hear and see men being thrashed] Dorian Gray: Or the prize bagged him. [Quatermain is corraling Mr. Hyde] Allan Quatermain: Stay back, if you value your lives. Mr. Hyde: Home... home is where the heart is, that's what they say. And I have been missing London so. Its sorrow is as sweet to me as a rare wine. [he eyes Mina Harker] Mr. Hyde: I am yours. Captain Nemo: Behold Nautilus; the Sword of the Ocean. Next stop Paris. Allan Quatermain: [being lead down a staircase that doesn't seem to end] Where are we going? Australia? Allan Quartermain: [after the exploration pod has been stolen] We can track it. Captain Nemo: Track it? I intend to catch it! [first lines] Sanderson Reed: [to coachman] Don't... wander... off. Allan Quartermain: Chilao! [a target is slung into the ocean. Sawyer hoists the elephant gun] Allan Quartermain: Aim. Tom Sawyer: That's easy. Allan Quartermain: Adjust for wind and target movement. Tom Sawyer: That's easy, too. Allan Quartermain: Here's the part that's not. You have to feel the shot. Take your time with it. You have all the time you need. All the time in the world. [Allan aims his elephant gun at a fleeing assassin] Sanderson Reed: But he's so far away. [Allan lowers the gun with a grunt of frustration] Sanderson Reed: Yes, I thought he was. [Allan puts on a pair of glasses] Allan Quartermain: God, I hate getting old. [He aims the rifle and fires. In the far distance, the assassin goes down. Reed gapes] Captain Nemo: [after Mina has killed marksman] Extraordinary! Dorian Gray: [after watching Hyde's attack] Quite the parlor trick. Mr. Hyde: Wait 'til you see my next one. [Hyde transforms suddenly into small and meek Henry Jekyll] Dr. Henry Jekyll: Dr.Jekyll... at your service. Mina Harker: [after seeing a painful reaction Jekyll's face] You all right? Dr. Henry Jekyll: My ears hurt, it's nothing. [Dante throws the Fantom a rocket launcher] Draper: [in German] Are you crazy? This place is full of hydrogen gas! The Fantom: Really? That's so frightening. [fires] Ishmael: Shall I wait, Captain? Captain Nemo: No, bring my lady to me. Mina Harker: And you are? Tom Sawyer: Special Agent Sawyer, American Secret Service. Ishmael: That Skinner's got a lot to answer for! Dorian Gray: Not Skinner - me! [raises his gun and shoots Ishmael] Mina Harker: [to Sawyer] I've had my fill of throats tonight! Dr. Henry Jekyll: He's stolen us - and we let him! M: [to Quatermain] Are you tired of being wrong? The League? Me? Skinner? Tom Sawyer: [Skinner has been burnt by a flamethrower] Are you okay? Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): That's the last time I play with matches! Allan Quartermain: The Phantom is M. And the hunt is still on. Dr. Henry Jekyll: What are you talking about? Allan Quartermain: The Phantom is M. The same man who recruited us. Dr. Henry Jekyll: [trying to examine Allan's wound] Let me see that. [he is shrugged off] Captain Nemo: But how? Allan Quartermain: We'll get our answers. Where are the others? Mina Harker: [entering] Dorian's missing in action. And Mr. Skinner must have fled when he realized we knew. Allan Quartermain: [concerned] Sawyer? Tom Sawyer: [entering with a bloody lip] He'll live to fight another day. Mina Harker: [advances towards Tom, he draws back] Don't worry, I've had my fill of throats for this evening.

Trivia

- When the League arrives at the London Docks, the camera passes by a wall with a poster for a carnival that is coming, there are two names: Dr. 'Alan Moore (III)' (qv) and Dr. 'Kevin O'Neill (IX)' (qv). These are the names of the gentlemen that created and wrote the comic "League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen". The poster is, in fact, a duplication of the title page of the League of Extraordinay Gentlemen Vol. 1 collected edition.

- As was the case with _From Hell (2001)_ (qv), another movie based on a comic by 'Alan Moore (III)' (qv), the scenes set in London were filmed in Prague.

- 'Monica Bellucci' (qv) was originally cast as Mina Harker, but had to drop out due to schedule conflicts.

- Filming was delayed due to the summer 2002 floods in Prague, Czech Republic which destroyed more than $7 million worth of sets.

- There were widespread rumors that 'Jason Isaacs' (qv) was to play the part of British Agent Campion Bond. However, in an interview Isaacs revealed he hadn't even read the script and that all reports of him in the role were, in fact, fabricated.

- The last scenes filmed were for the trailer, which were the first scenes publicly seen.

- The film's literary
