Audience Reviews for The Count of Monte Cristo

  • Jul 22, 2015
    Entertaining and enjoyable popcorn fluff. Some odd changes from the book dramatically deviate from the book's more powerful ending, turning a strong message of forgiving and forgetting into a convenient and soapy 'c'est la vie.'

    Dumas' classic adventure tale of revenge gets reheated yet again and still it's good. It literally never gets old. What's best about this version is the feeling of easy camaraderie developed by the two leads (Jim Caviezel and Guy Pearce) early on that lays the groundwork for the later betrayal, it gives the accompanying proceedings more weight. While perhaps not as rousing as one expects still a decent addition to the large family of Monte Cristo adaptations.

    The 2002 adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' book is remarkable nonetheless. The splendid and grandeur presentation as well as its climatic scenes were entertaining. Although it doesn't heighten and raise the artfulness to new levels, it is still solid enough to win most of its audience. 3.5/5
