The underwhelming League of Extraordinary Gentlemen makes its way to home theaters with 20th Century Fox's widescreen edition DVD. With its brilliant 2.35:1 picture and 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound, the disc is nothing short of spectacular as it showcases the film's glorious production values and lush levels of sound design. Though technically splendid, the extras, on the other hand, tend to be a bit of a let down. The disc is fairly loaded with bonus features that give the viewer a nice overview of the production, but with no juicy mentions of the widely publicized spats between star Sean Connery and director Stephen Norrington (which ended in the screen legend literally taking over the editing room in the final stages), the overtly positive "spin" on the behind-the-scenes work becomes more than questionable. Still, for a film that is mostly known for its eye candy, the detailed sections on the rest of the production make for some fine coverage of the artisans behind the camera. Split into three different areas, the disc's special features include six featurettes in the Assembling the League section, 12 deleted and extended scenes in the Deleted Scenes area, and two full-length audio commentary tracks in the Commentaries section. At almost an hour in total length, the featurettes cover everything from Jackie West's costuming to the film's miniature work, with equal time also given to the producer's link to the comic's originator, Alan Moore (their second adaptation after From Hell). The best of the bunch details Steve Johnson's incredible makeup effects that helped realize original artist Kevin O'Neill's hulking vision of Mr. Hyde, played by Jason Flemyng. The British actor can also be found joking around with the Invisible Man himself, Tony Curran, on the first of two commentary tracks. Sadly, Curran's hilarious Sean Connery impersonations are interrupted time and time again by producer Don Murphy's obnoxious outbursts at the fans that questioned some of the more ridiculous story line changes (courtesy of the track's intercutting of three separate recordings from the film's two producers and actor Shane West). There aren't too many great producer commentaries out there and Murphy goes a long way here to prove to you why. The second track is a technical commentary consisting of a costume/makeup/visual effects tag team track, most of which lengthily expands on the behind-the-scenes talk in the featurettes. Finally, the disc presents a wealth of deleted and extended scenes, though there's no sign anywhere of the more graphic scenes Norrington was forced to cut to get the PG-13 rating. Considering the film's poor box office, it's understandable that the studio would want to put out a more family-friendly disc, so it seems the original vision of the film (and the story behind it) will have to wait for another edition. In the meantime, you get a pristine presentation of the theatrical cut and some nice behind-the-scenes production work with this release.
