"The tortured soul of Captain Nemo and his thirst for revenge is what makes this perhaps the most powerful scene in the film."
— Harrison Ellenshaw
As the sun begins to set, the Nautilus lies in wait for "a cargo vessel that flies no flag." Captain Nemo and his crew were once prisoners on this island where slave labor is still forced to load ships with nitrates and phosphates for ammunition and "the seeds of war." But now, in the fading light of day, Nemo and the Nautilus will have their vengeance.
