File:The count of monte cristo 2362.jpg

The Count of Monte Cristo is a 2002 film based on the novel of the same name by Alexandre Dumas. It stars Jim Caviezel as the title character, and also Guy Pearce, James Frain, and Richard Harris.

Tropes used in The Count of Monte Cristo (film) include:

  • Ascended Extra: Jacopo, who obeys the Count's instructions without question in the book, becomes The Watson.
  • Beardness Protection Program: The Count trims his prison beard as part of his noble disguise.
  • Chess Motifs: Edmond and Fernand have a chess king that they trade back and forth when the other has a victory, recognizing the other as "King of the Moment". Edmond explains this to Napoleon Bonaparte, who observes that "In life, we are all either Kings or Pawns."
  • Dialogue Reversal: "Why are you doing this?" "It's complicated."
  • Did You Actually Believe?: The Count's final words to Villefort.

 "You didn't think I'd make it that easy for you, did you?"

 Luigi: We shall call him... Zatarra.

Edmund: Sounds fearsome.

Luigi: It means "driftwood".

 Jacopo: Why not just kill them? I'll do it! I'll run up to Paris -- bam, bam, bam, bam -- I'm back before week's end. We spend the treasure. How is this a bad plan?
