My wife and I watched The Count Of Monte Cristo 2002last night and I just have to say it was one of the best movies I have seen in a while. My wife enjoyed it also, almost as much as I did and that is saying something. I had downloaded the movie last year and had not watched it, been too busy, now I am glad I did. I no longer share the film as I had to clear off my hard drive late last year on several occasions, however here is a link to Jetje's post in October 2002 for a 2 disc rip Click Here.
Dashing young sailor Edmond Dantes is a guileless and honest man, whose peaceful life and plans to marry the beautiful Mercedes are abruptly shattered when his best friend Fernand, who wants Mercedes for himself, deceives him. Set up to be unlawfully sentenced to the infamous island prison of Chateau D'If, Edmond is trapped in a nightmare that lasts for thirteen years. Over time everything he ever believed about right and wrong is abandoned and replaced by all-consuming thoughts of vengeance against those who betrayed him. With the help of an equally innocent fellow inmate, Dantes plots and succeeds in his mission to escape from prison, whereupon he transforms himself into the mysterious and wealthy Count of Monte Cristo. With cunning ruthlessness, he cleverly insinuates himself into the French nobility and systematically destroys the men who manipulated and enslaved him.
If you haven't seen this movie and are even the slightest bit interested I would suggest you do, totally worth watching.
