A distinct improvement
6 December 2004 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

Although The Scarlet Pimpernel was not as disappointing as I had feared, it left me greatly unhappy. Madame Guillotine corrected many of its prequels most egregious

problems. I was thrilled by Percy's impersonation of Chauvelin, as it was very true to the spirit of the books, where Percy is a master of disguise rather than a prototype for James Bond. Marguerite was lovely and the Blakeneys' interaction both effective and believable. Plus, Grant has always done wonderfully as Sir Percival Blakeney, Baronet. Overall, it felt as though the crew has really found its feet. Still not as good, however, as the 1982 version with Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour. If you want to see Pimpernel done right, watch that film.

(and, in a completely pointless side note, I LOVE the theme song. The furtive, halting opening measures are ideal as is the overall lighthearted tone. Perfect for the insouciant Scarlet Pimpernel)
