I don't know what this was...certainly not a movie...the only comparison to the Jules Verne story is that it is underground...terrible acting, special effects and the costumes...reminds me of Adam Ant in the 1980s..haircuts, make up and clothing...my son made me rewind back wondering what happened to the end of the movie...it just seemed cut off somehow...what a freak show!!
I have only nseen 2 versions of JCE and this one hardly resembles the other one i had once seen as a kid. now, i do have to give it its due...its kind of funny in parts. i would definitely nominate this movie for a showing on the Mystery Science Theater series. the crew would have a field day with it.
