The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Plot hole: When the team plays back the record, it contains an extremely high-pitched tone which triggers the crystal sensors on the ship. But the speech on the record is low quality. This low quality would be the result of extreme frequencies being lost; but if they were, the trigger tone (a VERY extreme frequency) would be lost too. If the League's gramophones are capable of recording and playing such a tone, they should also be able to record and play back the speech without any quality loss. (01:09:05)

Plot hole: What on earth are those sailors doing with Hyde when he is chained up on The Nautilus? He is solidly chained to the floor and walls and they keep stepping up to him to allow him to swat them out of the way, risking injury or even death. They stand around like idiots as if waiting their turn to walk up to Hyde and be belted across the room. Why? Why are they even there? Hyde doesn't need subduing, and if he needed guarding they could do it without getting into range.

Plot hole: When we are shown the Nautilus' journey into Mongolia, are we expected to believe that this very, very long ship could travel down this river, even though it has a lot of sharp turns in it? (01:15:10)

Plot hole: As the Nautilus makes its way along a canal in Venice, you can see a bridge ahead of it that is far too low for the sub to pass under. Yet without altering its running depth, the sub miraculously appears in the canal well beyond this bridge moments later, and that bridge is not damaged.


Plot hole: When the Nautilus is in Mongolia, we are shown that there is deep snow everywhere. If this part of the movie takes place in July or August, why would there be any snow at all? Even the Yukon doesn't have snow in the summer, except for the northernmost portion of the province. (01:15:20)

Continuity mistake: When Quatermain arrives in London, he is greeted by Reed who leads him down some stairs. In the shot where they're going down some spiral stairs, for some reason you see a different actor (who is clean shaven) posing as Reed, going down the stairs holding the umbrella in his right hand. Then in the next shot you see the "original" actor who has a slight goatee and is holding the umbrella in his left hand. (00:13:25)

Trivia: Never in Oscar Wilde's story was Dorian Gray invincible, as is depicted in the film. Nor did looking upon his picture kill him. Dorian regularly stood in front of the painting, observing the degradation of his soul. He was only killed when he tried to destroy the picture.
