Don't let the cover fool it is Jim Caviezel (persons of interest) not Antonio Banderas.Monte Cristo is one of the great many movies I think to have come out in 2002 and it's one of my favorites movies.It has betrayal,love,re­venge and treasure and not forgetting an awesome sword fencing sequences(cho­reography done by Williams Hobbs) A great fairytale movie.

The Count of Monte Cristo

Prepare for adventure. Count on revenge.

Alexander Dumas' classic story of an innocent man wrongly accused but deliberately imprisoned is given an exciting treatment by director Kevin Reynolds (Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves, Waterworld).

Dashing young sailor Edmond Dantes (Jim Caviezel) is a guileless and honest young man whose peaceful life and plans to marry the beautiful Mercedes (Dagmara Dominczyk) are abruptly shattered when his best friend Fernand (Guy Pearce) betrays him. Unlawfully sentenced to the infamous island prison of Chateau D'lf, Edmond is trapped in a nightmare that lasts for thirteen years. With the help of an equally innocent fellow inmate (a grizzled Richard Harris), Dantes plots his mission to escape from prison, whereupon he transforms himself into the mysterious and wealthy Count of Monte Cristo

Revenge rarely gets sweeter than it does in.

The Count of Monte Cristo, a rousing, impeccably crafted adaptation of Alexandre Dumas literary classic. Filmed countless times before, the story is revitalized by director Kevin Reynolds (rallying after Waterworld) and screenwriter Jay Wolpert, who wisely avoid the action-movie anachronisms that plagued 2001's dubious Dumas-inspired.

The Musketeer. Leading a superior cast, Jim Caviezel (Frequency) expresses a delicate balance of obsession and nobility as Dantes, the wrongly accused Frenchman who endures 13 years of prison and torment, then uses a hidden treasure to finance elaborate vengeance on those who wronged him.

Memento's Guy Pearce is equally effective as Dantes's betraying nemesis, and Richard Harris tops his Harry Potter wizardry with a humorous turn as Dantes's fellow prisoner and mentor. Filmed on stunning locations in Ireland and Malta, The Count of Monte Cristo easily matches Rob Roy for intelligent swashbuckling entertainment.-Jeff Shannon
