Trivia

Even in Edmond's presence, the Abbe Faria mispronounces Villefort's name. He pronounces it "Vill-uh-fort," as one would expect if the name were English. Dantes pronounces it correctly, "Vee-yuh-fore." See more »

Good movie, if you haven't read the book
9 August 2003 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

"The Count of Monte Cristo" by Dumas is one of my favorite books, it keeps you on your toes the whole time, guessing what will happen next. The movie doesn't accomplish this as well. While the book is subtle with the Count's revenge, the movie screams for all to hear. "The Count of Monte Cristo, formerly Edmund Dantes is going to get revenge on his friends!!!" They left out 3 main characters, and DRASTICALLY changed the ending, they had to, the end involves those 3 characters they left out. But I did like the movie and if you enjoy it too I encourage you to read the book!
