Already 10 years ago, Sean Connery decided to retire after the dismal failure of 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' and since then, the only thing I can do is either rewatch his classics or watch his more obscure movies.

“Already 10 years ago, Sean Connery decided to retire after the dismal failure of 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' and since then, the only thing I can do is either rewatch his classics or watch his more obscure movies. This movie definitely belongs to the 2nd category and even though Connery was displayed prominently on all the promotional material, he actually only had a supporting part.

Eventually, the best character was played by the always dependable John Lithgow who was the only one who managed to find the right way to deal” read more
