Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
An epic global circumnavigation unfolds in a mere 4 1/2 hours in this 1989 miniseries adapted from Jules Verne's famous novel. Pierce Brosnan stars as Phileas Fogg, a straight-laced Victorian Englishman who undertakes the trip on a wager, taking his valet, Passsepartout Eric Idle, along for the ride. Adding to the excitement, an English detective Peter Ustinov who suspects Fogg of robbing the Bank of London relentlessly pursues them throughout the journey. Verne's 19th-century travelogue is a ripping yarn in which Fogg and Passerpartout brave all manner of weather and terrain, in every imaginable late-19th-century vehicle -- including, in a tribute to the 1956 wide-screen adaptation, a hot-air balloon. While the production values of this version aren't exactly up to Hollywood standards, some exotic locations lend enough visual splendor to keep it absorbing. And, as with the '50s classic, this version sports a nice array of bit parts and cameos, featuring such TV luminaries as Jack Klugman, Roddy McDowall, and Robert Wagner. But Brosnan fans are likely to be the most taken with Around the World in 80 Days: He's quite charming as the impeccably dressed, top-hatted, ever-polite hero. In a striking departure from his now-familiar James Bond persona, he's adept at affecting a schoolboyish awkwardness, particularly when he begins to fall for a Burmese princess Julia Nickson whom he rescues from ritual human sacrifice. The result is by no means a definitive remake of this classic, but it's still a delightful and exceedingly affordable escape -- no passport required.

    Very Poor Quality

    This DVD is very poorly made. The picture quality is very bad. Unfortunately, it is a great version of Around the World in 80 Days ... Wish I had read the previous reviews of this DVD purchased through Barnes and Noble prior to purchasing.

    Badly Executed DVD Presentation

    This is a wonderful story with a stellar cast. However, this DVD presentation stinks. First, the sound track is exceedingly uneven, and that fact coupled with the lack of close captioning and/or subtitles compounds the problem. Second, the spacing of the film on two discs is screwed up. Somewhere BEFORE the end of disc 1, there's an intermission followed by subsequent credits, which are then followed by credits again BEFORE the last few chapters on disc 1. Overall, it's a real lousy presentation.

    Great series/ poor dvd transfer.

    Pierce Brosnan and Eric Idle were delightful in this series funny moments and tender moments are nicely paced. Ustinov, as the detective, mugs shamelessly. However, the transfer to DVD is the worst I have ever seen: all repeats of logos and credits, etc., are included. Color is bad obviously cheaply done. Better to create your own video direct from the TV reruns, which are done without interruption.

    Jules Verne goes Around the World Again

    For years this film buff has had a special place in his heart for the 1956 version of Around the World in 80 Days, Produced by Michael Todd, starring David Niven, Cantinflas, Robert Newton, and Shirley MacLaine, with a host of Hollywood's brightest stars in cameo appearances. The film was in the new super wide screen Todd-A-O process, with an expansive score by Victor Young. Alas, it has never made its way to DVD, and languishes in a cropped off full-frame VHS version only. It will never reach the theatres again in its full glory. Now along comes Pierce Brosnan, aided by Eric Idle, Peter Ustinov, and Julia Nickson, with an equally star-studded cameo cast. The film was produced for television, so no image area is lost in the transition to DVD. The stereo sound is not the same as the surround sound from 1965, but the score by Billy Goldenberg holds up very well along side the Victor Young version. The photography is spectacular, the period detail is impeccable, and the acting first rate. The humerous interplay between Brosnan, Idle and Ustinov is an especial joy. Julia Nickson quickly wins our hearts as the Western-educated Indian princess. In short, while the Mike Todd film is still at the top of my wish list, the new 1989 version starring the future James Bond is firmly established in my repeat viewing list.
