      Gerry M Made for TV, this carries a lot of the original story without too many hideous changes, Read the book to understand better, Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/31/24 Full Review Jelisije J A pretty good tv adaption that starts off a bit wrong, but quickly recovers with strong performances from the actors that really brings the characters to life. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review Jack S A lavish and generally well made television version that would have benefitted from a little narrative focus—the massive classic novel is just too broad a source to effectively cover with this much detail and this many characters in merely a 1-3/4 hour long production. Chamberlain makes a fine and dashing Dantes, but Curtis is unfortunately miscast. Nelligan, in her debut, strongly dominates her every scene—more of her and simply less of everything else would have satisfyingly improved the result here. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member A very watered down version of the book, which is no bad thing. However, the hammy acting lives up to the ridiculous nature of the story. Pretty average stuff and not worth watching on any level really. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the 1000 movies to see before death. For those who love the greatest films ever. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A very mediocre film that can't handle a novel like this very well.
