What happened to your mercy?"
"I'm a count, not a saint."

Loved this film. I loved the book, but after some of my favorite novels turned into rubbish film adaptations, I wasn't expecting too much. But I was pleasantly surprised after viewing this film. Jim Caviezel plays the title role as the Count of Monte Cristo, who is actually the wrongfully accused sailor, Edmund Dantes... read more

A good movie

“Following respectively ‘The Thin Red Line’ and ‘Memento’, James Caviezel and Guy Pearce became hot properties and the studios decided to surf on their new found popularity and make this ambitious period piece. Well, even though I’m not a huge fan of the genre, I thought it was pretty good but, unfortunately, it was a flop and for both those guys their career never became as huge as some thought it would be (personally, I don’t really care, Guy Pearce remains a great actor no matter what). Coming back to our main feature, it is a classic of the French literature (as usual, I didn’t read it but don’t make a fuss about it) written by Alexandre Dumas père, the guy also responsible for ‘The Three Musketeers’. To be honest, even though I’m familiar with this tale, I don’” read more

The Things We Do for Love (26 movies items)

"Mercedès and Edmond and Fernand What Fernand did: Frame Edmond, steal his fiancee, ruin his life The Fernand of this movie version is a pretty bad dude. He took everything he could from his best friend Edmond, and he didn't even cherish the things he stole. What Edmond did: Re-direct Fernand's money, steal his wife, ruin his life Seems kind of fitting, considering the terrible things Edmond had to endure. But, his love for Mercedes, plus a healthy dose of vengeance kept him focused."

"Well acted and entertaining 2 hrs on action, humor and adventure. Maybe the best known revenge story of all time. You can spot the great Richard Harris in his last days as an actor in the role of the priest. "
