SCI FI PREMIERE: 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (1997)

Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire, Barnabas Collins in the 1990s' Dark Shadows) and Emmy Award-winner Richard Crenna (the Rambo trilogy) star in this dramatic reimagining of Jules Verne's classic novel. While investigating a mysterious rash of attacks on military sea vessels, a marine biologist and his daughter (Julie Cox, Princess Irulan in SCI FI's Frank Herbert's Dune and Children of Dune original miniseries) are trapped aboard the Nautilus, a futuristic submarine piloted by the vengeful Captain Nemo. Directed by Michael Anderson (The Shoes of the Fisherman, Logan's Run).

It's terrible!

The acting is poor, Ben Cross trys to play an enigmatic and unemotional Nemo, but his performance comes across as wooden and stilted.

The Nautilus looks like a pregnant whale!

Agree,

Nemo falls in love with Aronnax's daughter? They've gone too far with the movie! :D
280 meters.... and she's still in one piece!

Ned Land also falls for Aronnax's daughter! :angry:

And Nemo has a coed crew! In uniforms that would look right at home on any Star Trek episode.

After twenty minutes I changed the channel and did not look back! :(
