This is not The Mysterious Island. It's some pirate movie with a few stolen characters..

I think I need to give up on the Jules Verne adaptations.

The only half-decent one I've seen recently involved Brendan Fraser.
That should tell you something about the quality of the movie.
Actually, that's unfair.
I did kind of enjoy the movie.
It was a new adaptation of Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Shlocky, but fun.

Anyway, I digress.

The movie I'm watching now, is supposed to be The Mysterious Island.

This is not a retelling of the book written by Jules Verne.

It's more like a movie that includes some characters and settings that kind of resembles something written by Jules Verne.

It's like that new zombie Pride and Prejudice book. They had to include Jane Austen in the authorship because she created the characters.

Similar situation here. Except replace zombies and Jane Austen with strangely large animals and Jules Verne.

In fact, it really has nothing to do with the book by Jules Verne.

The book did NOT have large rodents.
In fact, it did not have abnormally large animals of any sort.
It also did not have pirates.
Or a weird love story.

Poor Captain Nemo. He would be so ashamed.
