The Count of Monte Cristo Reviews

  • 4d ago

    Uno de mis libros favoritos de la pluma del ingenioso Alexandre Dumas Sr. Nos cuenta una historia llena de misterio, drama, mapas de tesoros y sobre todo venganza. Edmund Dantes (Jim Caviezel) es culpado injustamente de un crimen que lo hará pasar años en prisión, todo orquestrado por su "mejor" amigo, Fernand Mondego (Guy Pearce) por su amor por Mercedes (Dagmara Dominczyk). La película es divertida, interesante y creo que es una buena adaptación del libro en cuestión; no me gusta comparar libros con películas porque considero que es innecesario por ser diferentes ámbitos artísticos. Es una película que disfruto mucho por las actuaciones y las locaciones donde fue filmada, es una historia clásica que no pasará de moda y que aún hoy, sigue estando vigente.

    A stunning depiction of an incredible novel with a lazy ending compared to the original. However, this Hollywood ending doesn't do so much damage to a movie that is otherwise a great collector's item.

    A compelling story about vengeance and suffering leads the many great aspects of this criminally underrated 2002 movie. The Count of Monte Cristo is very passionate with how it tells its tale and how it guides its characters and their journeys.

    Excelente filme. Ademais, não é uma obra de ficção perfeita, mas trás consigo elementos simples, que tornam um filme gostoso de assistir.

    Fun action film that may have changed too much of the book.

    Touches the heart strings with love, hate, sadness and sweet revenge!! The anticipation of each emotion isn't drawn out and satisfied in the perfect passing of time!! Jim Caviezel is unequalled in past interpretations of Edmond Dantes! His soul is seen without blemish on his face every time he spoke! I enjoyed it completely!

    A quality interpretation of a romantic period masterpiece. Alexander Dumas would be proud of this bold effort at mirroring a historic masterpiece. The movie portrays The Count Of Monte Cristo not so much as a story of the cathartic nature of revenge but of the freedom which comes only from true redemption.

    This drama based on a best selling novel was really good. Jim Caviezel, Guy Pearce, Richard Harris, Luis Guzman, and the rest of the cast did a fantastic job in this movie. The plot to the movie was suspenseful and dramatic. It's one of the best revenge movies ever made. If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out sometime. You'll enjoy it.
