Action and Adventure
There are lots of screen versions of Jules Verne's great adventure about a Victorian gentleman and his servant taking up a challenge to traverse the globe in less than three months, but this might be the best. James Bond star Pierce Brosnan is excellent as Phileas Fogg, a chap who has all the stiff-upper-lip-under-pressure calm that British people are renowned for in fiction anyway. Assorted famous people who were alive during Fogg's time have been introduced to the story for added fun.
A film told through extended shots of various worldwide events, settings, and creatures, creating a dreamy, universal resonance.
