    The Count of Monte Cristo

    What's it About

    Adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' classic revenge tale centers on Edmond Dantes (Caviezel), a handsome young man prospering in love and career until jealous noble Fernand Mondego (Pearce) frames him for a crime he didn't commit. Over ten years of hard imprisonment follow, during which Edmond plots and prepares for Fernand's come-uppance, with the invaluable counsel of fellow prisoner Faria (Harris).

    Why we love it

    Director Reynolds fashions a handsome, sweeping, exciting epic that keeps his audience glued in place. Pearce's Fernand is so despicably low, we cannot wait for the long-suffering Edmond to wreak vengeance. In this hugely entertaining picture, revenge is a dish served hot, and adventure fans are sure to feel sated by the end. Also, solid family viewing (with older children).
