Directed by Rowland V. At first I was a bit insulted that I wasn't deemed as good as some of my classmates that could skip the grunt nuts-and-bolts part of the U.
English language, but I now understand that it was preparing me to write a bit better than I would have otherwise. But the unintended consequenses are that as a result, I would rather watch a James Bond movie than a telling of a Shakespeare drama.
When it was time to watch and review this movie that was taken from a famous story by Alexandre Dumas about a duchy in the Balkans in horse and carriage days, my initial enthusiasm was not terribly high. Ahhhh, but we must do what we must do.
Surprisingly, this movie is even better and filled with more death-defying action than a James Bond thriller. This is definately a movie for the guys, but you can let your lady watch with you if you must.
It has a dashing young hero who fights the evil bad guys from the first minutes right up until the final minute when our hero battles the villain to the death. Our amazing testosterone-filled hero is a young Louis Hayward, later to portray master detective The Lone Wolf on television.
In this action packed thriller he is the Count of Monte Cristo, the richest man in the world, and at the same time the masked crusader of justice. Could have ended better all round.
