30,000 Leagues Under the sea (2007) – By Jason S. Lockard

Jules Verne has created great characters an awesome story any of which have come to the big screen and small screen. The Asylum which brings us the SyFy original movies brought us this offering and now Echo Bridge Entertainment has released this movie on Blu-Ray. Let’s take a look at this Blu-Ray release.

The film takes place in the present day when the USS Scotia led by Lieutenant Aronnaux (Lorenzo Lamas) is lost. They are rescued by the Nautilus and an apparently charming Captain Nemo. The crew soon realize that the Captain of this amazing ship is a madman and wants to destroy the surface world!

30,000 Leagues under the sea is one of those films that probably should never have been made. It bears no resemblance to Jules Verne’s classic novel except for the fact that Nemo and the Nautilus are in it! The story is bad, the acting seems flat. The only good part of the film was the shots of the CGI sub and giant mechanical squid. The blu-ray had a great quality copy of this film, but no bonus features at all!

In the final analysis if you love sitting at home and enjoying laughing at the horrible awful Syfy original movie this is another good laugh fest for you, but if you want a good Jules Verne film this one won’t do it for you.
