Audience Reviews for The Count of Monte Cristo
The best screen adaptation I've seen because it remains true to the story, unlike that craptastic 2002 version. The only thing I didn't like was the sword fight between Fernand and Edmond. The confrontation between 2 suitors 15 years after the fact. *yawn*
Of all the 'Monte Cristo' films, this is the best. It could be the production quality or the acting, but I will say that Chamberlain did a fantastic job in his role.
This is a great movie, it is one of the best revenge movies I've ever seen. Edmond Dantes (Chamberlain) gets banished to the "Chateau Dif" which is like "Alcatraz Prison". For crimes he didn't commit. He breaks out, finds a buried treasure, and becomes "The Count of Monte Cristo". He gets revenge on the 3 men who put him away (for many years, I might add). And the way he does it is pure genius! Do not be confused by the remake that came out about 8 years ago, this is the original, and it's the best!
