THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (Released to Theaters USA 2002)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

 The Count of Monte Cristo—classic story—increases its interest factor as the movie goes from its start to its finish. As the plot thickens, the audience needs to finish the film. It has an excellent message built into the core that backs itself in intrigue, rich scenery, and a plot that twists and turns enough to satisfy its audience. Although it bases itself on a British classic novel, it is not slowly paced nor is it boring…a suitable watch.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Count of Monte Cristo has a good script and flows well but does not improve much over the  1975 televised version of this story.
