    Scarlet Pimpernel

    This movie is quite good when seen a few times, and the plot is fine, if not as outstanding as the book itself. I became a Pimpernel fanatic after reading the novel, The Scarlet Pimpernel, by Baroness Orczy (whose full name is Emmuska Magdalena Rosalie Marie Josepha Barbara Orczy), because the story line was realistic, excellent, something that might have well happened during the French Revolution. The movie is okay to most standards, but it wonders drastically away from the plot set in the book. The first movie is actually a mixture of book one, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and book two, The Elusive Pimpernel, forming a horrible throw-together combination of events that never took place in either. The plot doesn't flow smoothly enough to convince¿ you see scenes that make you think of a soap opera. I bought all three tapes, collecting from word of mouth how great it was. Get ready to close this 'Pimpernel's' scarlet petals.

    The Terror of the French revolution

    The Three Movies of the Scarlet Pimpernel show what life might have been like during the French revolution. With jailing and executions the French revolutionists were growing stronger and the Sir Percy Blackeney's Double role as the Scarlet Pimpernel puts an end to the miseries of those in France who are being tortured, and killed when they ask for justice. With Intrigue, passion and suspence to the very end, the three movies are a wonderful way to show todays audience a little bit about the past....

    more from this reviewer

    Only Richard E. Grant is truly worth watching.

    Frankly, the "series" overdoes it. It's often cheesy in places where it doesn't seem like it's supposed to be - unlike the fantastic 1982 version. Marguerite played by Elizabeth McGovern was just...disappointing. At times, she was quite awkward to watch - especially by her co-star. Grant makes an awesome Sir Percy. He was simply amazing. I only got through all three titles in the series because of him - he's THAT good.

    The movie could have been so much better if they had properly cast Marguerite. Still, it wasn't wholly bad and somewhat enjoyable. I made my little brother watch both this version and the 1982 version as well. He likes this one better because of Grant.

    Well look at you! You're Ronan Vibert!

    Now look, I'll be honest. The series isn't great. The production is cheesy at times, as is much of the dialogue. McGovern is often stiff or simply nondescript in her scenes. However, Richard E. Grant is great: exhuberant, with a fine talent for acting made obvious any time he is interracting with another character. Despite his skill, the real acting chops of the series belong to Ronan Vibert.
    "Ronan Vibert?"
    Ronan Vibert.
    I didn't know jack about no Ronan Vibert either. But his Robespierre really scared me and I liked it. As something of a history buff, particularly in regard to the French Revolution, I know that Robespierre was polite, absent-minded, well groomed, soft spoken, and liked by most people and animals known to him before 1789. Until his election as Public Prosecutor of Paris in 1791, Robespierre was publically mocked and of not even moderate importance. You see, I know that a realistic portrayal of Robespierre should be less cold and terrifying. But Vibert's handling of the role is so seamless that one cannot help but be awed by it. And, despite the historical exaggerations necessary to the script, he has obviously done his homework. Vibert's Robespierre walks with a self-conscious gait and occasionally develops a small facial twitch. The details blend fluidly in with the plot elements and make for some truly captivating interraction with other characters. For example, check out the shaving scene and the auction scene in "A King's Ransom." The dandy wig is silly, but damn.

    Not half as exciting as the book

    I loved the Scarlet Pimpernel book and was in suspense until nearly the last page. I've read as many of the other Pimpernel books as I could find. These movies are pitiful. I got these as a Christmas gift and after watching the first 2, I didn't even bother with the 3rd one. Major disappointment.

    Absolutely fabulous!

    i had read the book a while ago and had seen other previous versions of scarlet pimpernel, but the 2000 release was the best yet mainly because the actors played the characters so 'gay' which made it more interesting, more dramatic and even amusing in the oddest instances. the language, the makeup, even the slight traces of lipstick made the pimpernel himself all the more 'delicious'. and i am not a gay man, but rather a 61 year old former English teacher and straight grandmother. i just loved it, loved it!!!
