30,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Sci-Fi NR. In this modern retelling of the classic science-fiction tale, the charismatic sociopath Captain Nemo uses his high-tech submarine to wreak vengeance on the surface world. Re-telling any classic takes some guts as your always going to be compared to it plus the fact that your budget is not up to Hollywood standards makes the effort more difficult and requires more heart from the entire cast and crew to make a film to be proud of. The Asylum is a small studio that works off very little budget while making movies that are for the most part entertainment. So that brings me to 30,000, I was looking forward to seeing this as I am a fan of Lorenzo Lamas and Sea Lawlor and to me neither men disappointed here and play their roles very well. Sure there's some corny dialogue but thats in big film's as well(just go see Transformers and you can tell), but over-all I felt the script and story were good. Another reason I enjoyed this film was the cgi, not over-used but when needed I think it was done very well. You can't go into this thinking your going to see the classic all over again, get real people if your are, what your going to get is a film that is never boring and carries a good pacing and in the end is entertaining. There's not much more you can ask for here folks. Good job The Asylum, I look forward to what you have to offer next. Released by The Asylum Home Entertainment. *** 1/3 Out Of *****
