    Kinda slow and limp, but watchable.

    Faithful retelling of the classic. Could have been more imaginative.

    Bah, "The Count of Monte Cristo" is a movie that displays a violent tale of revenge into a ridiculously cheesy one. However I'll give credit for the excellent cinematography.

    Half of it was a copy of Zorro, very average.

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

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

    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.
