Audience Reviews for The Count of Monte Cristo

For a made for TV movie this was very good. I had to watch it twice to get the full impact of who the main characters where and their relationship with each other. It had a lot of good acting and a great plot. And better yet a good ending.. I hate good movies with sad endings.

Joyce Gillaspie

This is a great movie! It is closer to my heart than the new one! Richard Chamberlain is FANTASTIC! This shows that it's rated "R" but it's not, it was a made for TV movie. On my "In Another Century" list. VHS.

Robin P.

Even though I liked the recent Jim Cavaziel version better, this adaptation was much closer to the Alexandre Dumas novel. Richard Chamberlain was excellent as Dantes.
