Here’s my review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for MovieRob’s May Genre Grandeur of films adapted from graphic novels. It may not be the most popular of superhero movies, but it paved the way for future team-ups and is far more entertaining than its negative reviews might make you think.

For this month’s next review for Genre Grandeur – Graphic Novel Film Adaptations, here’s a review of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) by SG of Rhyme & Reason

Thanks again to Vern of the Video Vortex for choosing this month’s genre.

Next month’s Genre has been chosen by Audrey of 1001 Movies and Beyond and she has chosen the genre of Movie Musicals.

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of June by sending them to

Try to think out of the box! Great choice Audrey!

Let’s see what SG thought of this movie:


The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)


It’s hard to beat a thrilling tale

Of risk and danger and betrayal,

Of trails to traipse and close escapes,

Imagined on an epic scale.

Thus, someone somewhere, fancy-prone,

Thought, “All these tales are grand alone.

Why not combine and redesign

These universes so well-known?”
