The Count of Monte Cristo


Some time in the early 19th century, French adventurer Edmond Dantes (Jim Caviezel) is wrongly imprisoned after being betrayed by a ā€œfriendā€; a decade later, he comes looking for revenge. This conventional movie version of the Alexandre Dumas classic was made by a director who doesnā€™t deserve his bad reputation. He makes sure the movie is handsome and entertaining, and includes a thrilling final duel. Having actors who know their stuff is also a big help. Caviezel avoids turning his hero into a dull clichĆ©; Guy Pearce makes us hate the bad guy, and thatā€™s all we should ask for.Ā 

2002-U.S.-Britain-Ireland. 131 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Kevin Reynolds. Novel: Alexandre Dumas. Cast: Jim Caviezel (Edmond Dantes), Guy Pearce (Fernand Mondego), Richard Harris (AbbĆ© Faria), Dagmara Dominczyk, Michael Wincott, Luis GuzmĆ”n.
