Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Except for Connery, who is every inch the lion in winter, nothing here feels authentic. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: Despite Sean Connery and some impressive 19th century gloom, this big-screen translation of Alan Moore's culty comic-book series falls to earth with an incoherent splat. – Charles Taylor,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Even if, per Wilde, all art is quite useless, it need not be quite as useless as this. – Ed Park, Village Voice, Jul 30, 2003

Rotten: The League is a movie to enjoy, then to root for and finally to be disappointed by. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 5, 2003

awesome concept and well-executed...

I know the critics weren't crazy about this movie, but I loved it. I own it on DVD and have watched it many times. The casting and performances are terrific. Wish there would have been a sequel.


I liked this film when I first saw it, so if that counts, it's worth a rent. But what makes this a 2 star film is it's overall boredom, and disappointing and convuluted story. The acting is all good. The lady who played the vampire -- name escapes me -- was probably the weakest role. The screenplay is the downfall to this. I thought it could've been a good super-hero flick, but it's more of a who's-who of literary figures -- which sounds interesting, but not executed correctly. It may be faithful to the graphic novel/comic book, but please, couldn't they have split this into two films. Everything was smooshed to give us all the story we could handle, but it was more than we could. Yet I never read the source material, so I can't really comment; but it needed trimming. The special effects are okay, but all in all they're bland. The villain's identity is a letdown, as is the second-half of the film, in which it turns into a whole different film, and by then I'm just waiting for the time to run out so I can watch something else. It's worth a rent, but overall, this is one disappointing film. Do not buy, but rent it instead.

Amazing!!!!! True masterpiece!!!

I love this movie from start to finish! I've seen it about 40 times and It is amazing. I Highly recommend this film ad I wish it was for sale!!!
