Hyams is hoping that the newfangled wall-climbing swordplay will compensate for the inexperience of the young and relatively unknown cast members populating most of the central roles. It doesn't.

The swordplay, which is what makes the older Musketeer-type movies fun, is mostly fast and blurry here, and actually not entertaining.

Alexandre Dumas would be rolling around in his grave if this movie were lively enough to wake him up.

Did I mention there are fight sequences? They are by far the best part of this movie, but even they disappoint.

Without a doubt the worst adaptation of the popular Alexandre Dumas musketeer story that has ever been made.

"The Musketeer" is an unfortunate attempt to graft the lyrical artistry of a "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" onto an old-fashioned swashbuckler with disappointing results.

If there is a wrong angle to shoot from or an ill-advised edit to make, Hyams goes for it.

The most exciting moment for me happened when the guy three seats down from me seemed about to wake up from his obvious slumber.

Justin Chambers...is a thoroughly vapid lead, lacking the flair, charm, or acting ability to cut a suitably heroic figure.

"The Musketeer" is a modest mess of a film. It's not horrendously bad, but it's not extremely good.

A case of misplaced priorities -- lavish production values and elaborate action sequences at the expense of script and performance.

Neither thrilling nor unbearable.
