Count of Monte Cristo, The (2002) 
"The Count Of Monte Cristo" by Yojimbo
2.5/4 stars

Edmond Dantes naively accepts a letter from Napoleon and is consequently betrayed and imprisoned for 13 years. Upon his escape, he sets about destroying those responsible. The Count Of Monte Cristo is a solid, reasonably faithful adaptation of Dumas' literary classic with a strong cast who all put in decent performances. The best part of the film is probably the interaction between Caviezel and veteran actor Richard Harris as his prison bound mentor although I would like to have seen more made of this relationship. Freddie Jones and Michael Wincott also do well with parts that barely qualify for cameo status although Guy Pearce's Fernand is so irredeemably caddish he seems a little two dimensional. It has a certain authenticity however, with beautiful locations and fine costumes but it is a little lacking in the kind of flair exhibited by the best examples of the genre. Not bad though.
