Extraordinarily disappointing

It's kind of sad when they take a self contained, smart, literate, well written comic book and make it into a sub-par film that happens to have Sean Connery in it.

The Hulk and Spiderman and X-men are all so sprawling and contain so many contradictions I can understand the trouble in converting them into films.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was not a 50 year old series. It is two volumes. It is a well concieved universe. The story has little wasted or nonsensical action. There is little excuse for turning it into that cluster fuck.

That is all for now.
