Kevin Reynolds – 2002
The Count Of Monte Cristo is a wonderfully old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure from director Kevin Reynolds. Much like his 1991 film, Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves Reynold’s adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s epic novel is tremendous fun. The cast is great – Jim Caviezel, Guy Pearce, Richard Harris and Luis Guzman – with Pearce in particular seeming to relish his bad guy role.
Visually impressive, with a tremendous sense of pacing, The Count Of Monte Cristo is a real treat!
