Format: Blu-ray
This swashbuckler from Kevin Reynolds has enough going for it to leave one ultimately satisfied and entertained but I can't escape a conviction that the film achieves no more than the sum of its parts. With so many screen adaptations of Alexander Dumas' literary classic, it was a monumental challenge to come up with something fresh and relevant without losing the spirit of the book. Other critics have pointed out that the film departs substantially from Dumas towards the end. Much is changed although the main storyline of betrayal, imprisonment and revenge remains. Strictly within its own terms of reference the production works quite well.

Director Reynolds, like Ridley Scott, excels with lighting, colour and framing his pictures to "force the eye." He captures an appropriate classical look with rich, deep colours, and the shadow contrast in scenes with candles or firelight is noticeably good. Acting is uniformly accomplished in the main roles. Jim Caviezel offers a thoroughly believable hero in Edmond Dantes and Guy Pearce is a delight as the dissolute and cynical betrayer Count Mondego. My own favourites are Richard Harris who brings a gentle wisdom and humanity to the part of the Abbe Faria, and the extraordinary Michael Wincott as the deliciously sadistic warden of the Chateau d'If, Armand Dorleac.

One can revel in neat lines of dialogue like "treason is only a matter of dates," or "I lied....I am a priest, not a saint." There are also many humorous asides that are guaranteed to elicit a chuckle, but here I think is a problem. The dialogue contains sudden lapses into modern idiom which, while often amusing, conflict with the general period language of the story and this may break the spell for certain viewers.

While this maybe an entertainig movie for the ones who have not read the book, it is an abomination for those of us who cherish one of the world's greatest classics. It is like Romeo and Juliette getting married and live happily ever after. There are indeed beautiful scenes, good acting and an appealing story the movie is not really reflecting the book. I was thoroughly disgusted walking out of the theater. I would very highly recommend the 1974 version with Richard Chaimberlain as a much better film

The movie itself is a great movie. The only problem I had was the format of the DVD.

I am in North America, and the DVD was in European format, so most of my devices (xbox360, 2 different DVD players) couldn't read it. It works on my laptop, so the problem was somewhat resolved. Just a heads up to those in North America, this will not work in North American devices.

This DVD is a waste of money if you are from North America. It will not play in your DVD player

I read Dumas as a young reader.
It was great to visualize it in this adventure movie.
Dumas meant it as an "action" story, so no damage here was done to great literature in this "action movie" rendition.
Great fun and entertainment.

Wow! This story has it all: romance between a handsome man and a beautiful woman, pirates, deception, betrayal, huge adventure, amazing story line with unexpected twists and turns, great acting and superb sets and photography. Good wins out over evil. Love wins out over hate. Edmond Dantes gains his revenge, but in the end he discovers that revenge is not all sweet and there are things that are more important in life, like love and friendship. This a terrific movie well done.
