Based on the Alexander Dumas extended novel of the same name, The Count of Monte Cristo is a difficult story to adapt because of it's length. The DVD has a commentary track from director Kevin Reynolds, a feature on the writing of Dumas, a feature on the choreography of the fight scenes, and a feature on the production design. There are also deleted scenes, choreography on the final duel, an examination of the sound design of Edward's escape, and more. The film is in widescreen 1.85:1 aspect ratio and audio is THX certified with English 5.1 and French 5.1 Surround Sound, and Spanish subtitles.
