The horror! The worst re-make of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

I'm not sure that this counts as a disaster movie, even with my rather loose interpretation.

But I love Jules Verne.

So I figured I'd try it out on Netflix.

All I have to say is AHH.

Bad actors.

Bad dialogue.

Way too many liberties taken with the characters and plot line.

Sexist remarks from Captain Nemo with a little creepy rapist vibe.
I'm not joking.
He wants to keep Sophie (the new character) as his prisoner after the others are let go.
The Nautilus is NOT supposed to be a rapists den.

Basically, my worst nightmare.

They've ruined a wonderful book and created a movie that isn't even a good shlock.

It's just wrong.
