About the Movie

Jim Caviezel (Déjà Vu) and Guy Pearce (Bedtime Stories) give sizzling performances in the world’s greatest tale of betrayal, adventure and revenge—The Count Of Monte Cristo. When the dashing and guileless Edmond Dantes (Caviezel) is betrayed by his best friend (Pearce) and wrongly imprisoned, he becomes consumed by thoughts of vengeance. After a miraculous escape, he transforms himself into the mysterious and wealthy Count of Monte Cristo, insinuates himself into the French nobility, and puts his cunning plan of reprisal in action. Experience the resounding clash of swords and the deadly glint off every razor-sharp blade in this swashbuckling thriller that will keep you perched on the edge of your seat until the very last drop of sweet revenge is exacted!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: There's a thin line between likably old-fashioned and fuddy-duddy, and The Count of Monte Cristo ... never quite settles on either side. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: [A] pleasant diversion. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A rousingly old-fashioned swashbuckler with an abundance of vigorous action and nary a trace of wink-wink irony. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Neither among the best nor the worst of the lot, it falls somewhere inconspicuously in between, serving up both lively and ill-fitting performances as well as lush backdrops and the requisite derring-do. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010
