Utterly thrilling and enthralling, a commercial film that paces itself wonderfully, never allowing the action or romance to outweigh its story and characters. For mainstream adventure fare, that's quite an accomplishment.

Performances by Jim Caviezel and Richard Harris make this a great adventure.

An exhilarating visualization of Alexandre Dumas' classic novel of betrayal and vengeance.

This delicious adventure of crude betrayal and elegant revenge is yummy even when reheated by director Kevin Reynolds.

With more buckling than swash, The Count of Monte Cristo is a good-looking, poorly acted washout.

James Caviezel makes us care more about that innocent romantic, Edmond Dantes, than we may care to care about the rest of the picture, which entertains in fits and starts, with startling ruptures in tone.
