Added DiffLines:

* BondVillainStupidity: Fernand and Villefort's frame up would likely have gone perfectly if they had just had Edmond executed as stated rather than thrown in prison for the rest of his life. This was already a VillainBall in the novel, but the film escalates it into ForTheEvulz levels, since the prison here is implied to be little more than a corrupt torture chamber they and other corrupt aristocrats dump their scapegoats so they can suffer.


Added DiffLines:

* PostMortemOneLiner: An unusual variation, as it is exchanged while the victim is still dying from their wounds.
-->[[spoiler:Fernand: What happened to your mercy?]]
-->[[spoiler:Edmond: I'm a count....not a saint.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SpitefulSpit: Fernand does one to [[spoiler: Edmond as he goads him to finish him.]]

* AdaptationDistillation: Inevitably given its size, large swathes of Dumas' novel are omitted or trimmed. Prominent characters such as Caderousse, Haydée, Franz d'Epinay, Benedetto, Bertuccio and Ali are also omitted. Nonetheless, it keeps to the plot and themes of the novel admirably.

* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Clarion, who is Villefort's father]]. It was something of a running gag in Dumas' novel that he was virtually indestructible.

** Fernand was already an unscrupulous serial traitor in the book, but the movie goes out of its way to make him as deeply repulsive as possible -- in the book, he and Edmond weren't friends to begin with, so the betrayal was not as deeply personal. The book's Fernand was also not explicitly unfaithful to Mercedes, nor did he routinely challenge people to duels for sport; he also did not show as much distain for his son Albert. The book's Fernand was also not a born aristocrat, so he lacks the classist tendencies of the film character.
