||Nearly a half hour into The Asylum's 30,000 Leagues Under the Sea the primary characters almost suffocate to death due to lack of oxygen. I knew how they felt; I'd been suffocating for the last 26-minutes. Did the guy writing this film think he was crafting a procedural? There's so much technical jargon and scientific explanations during the first thirty of this film that I honestly kept waiting for it to start getting interrupted with voiceover and diagram asides explaining in further detail how the scientific properties worked, sort of like how specials on the Discovery and History Channel often mix dramatic re-enactments with nuts & bolts know-how. The dialogue of act one is so matter-of-fact that it leaves virtually no room for anything resembling characterization or personality. It's almost as if the screenwriter was working overtime to make everything scientifically plausible; odd, given this is the same movie that later on has a character swimming around without protective gear well below oceanic crush depth...All in all, there's nothing really wrong with 30,000 Leagues Under the Sea aside from it being a terribly uninteresting film. Amazing how a movie set almost entirely underwater could be so dry.
