The Count of Monte Cristo (2002)

Count of Monte Cristo, The (2002, USA/GBR) C-131m. ** D: Kevin Reynolds. Starring James Caviezel, Guy Pearce, Richard Harris, James Frain, Dagmara Dominczyk, Michael Wincott, Luis Guzmán. Umpteenth retelling of the famous Alexandre Dumas novel about innocent seafarer Edmond Dantes (Caviezel), who swears revenge after one of his adversaries (Pearce) makes him go to prison - for years. Attractive scenery, good cinematography undermined by rushed plot development that is based on a few too many circumstances.
