Great version

Always a good story and this cinema version is still pretty good today. Great sets, great acting, great views, great battles. This film aged well. It was the second time I saw it.

Great Book...Terrible Screenplay

Hollywood does not seem to understand that it isn't necessary to re-invent a classic story to keep it interesting, when the classic story has proven itself most interesting to generations of readers. This is a Disney-fied version of the Dumas story, as "improved" by Reynolds and Wolpert who are given the green-light by test audiences and studio executives to alter the original story. While one couldn't expect to compress a lengthy novel into a a few hours of film, this is a re-make for Americans who aren't literate enough to enjoy reading the book or watching an authentic European version that might require them to read subtitles.

I also do not appreciate IMBd promoting this movie, (selecting it automatically without any choice having been made, from several titles about MONTE CRISTO.

A Hidden Gem

Really liked this movie and will likely read the book now. Usually a book outdoes it's film counterpart, but we shall see. This was well done, from the superb acting from Cavieziel as Dantes, Pearce as Mondego, and Guzman as Savior Jacapo. Of Course, Richard Harris always is outstanding. Villefort also was good, as were all the other bit characters. The Lady Mondego was a little weak, at times a little too nasally but not below average. I thought also the young actor playing the son was very believable. The movie score, so important, was excellent too, as was the editing & cinematography, filmed in Ireland & Malta.

This is my first movie review, so bear with me. Not very polished at this stage.
