| I love it (loosely base on the movie though)
It's loosely based on the book, but I still like it very much.

I've seen the 1975 version which is more like the book, but seems too rush and without much character development. I have yet to see the 1998 miniseries. I think this movie captures the essence of Dumas book, although it made a lot of changes to the original story, but I didn't mind that, and liked this ending better than the book. This is a tale of revenge, and it's done well. it's engaging and entertaining, and I do think that makes you want to read the book. Overall I really recommend this movie. If you loved the book, I suggest you see it with open eyes, taking into account it makes a lot of changes including the ending. But you still will have an amazing revenge tale and I think it's a very enjoyable movie. Give it a chance.
