The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo ★★★★½

Vastly entertaining and epic. The ultimate revenge story, 175 years old and just as captivating as ever. 

Caviezel is excellent across the stages of Dante’s’ life. A naive young man, a hopeless prisoner, and a bitter and hateful Count who must find redemption before revenge takes him over completely. 

Richard Harris is a delight as Dantes’ cell mate and mentor; his last movie before he died. 

Some cheesy moments, but fun and engaging throughout. Even a super young Superman pops up, with Henry Cavill playing Dantes’ son.

Classic and overlooked.
