If you want over-the-top entertainment that doesn't respect the laws of physics, you can't do much better than this.

Anderson has crafted a beautiful and rambunctious film that is in many ways a lot more fun than the last few Disney "Pirates of the Caribbean" films.

The same old story but with some new twists, a substantial cast, and some energetic special effects.

Director Paul W.S. Anderson has injected a great sense of fun in this visually sumptuous adventure

They don't make period romps like they used to, but The Three Musketeers comes close; all it needs is a bit more sex

I would never call this version a classic, but I was fairly entertained by it. Should a sequel be made, as the ending so clearly anticipates, I would happily go to see it.

It's an odd film in a beguiling, sometimes bewildering assortment of modes.

I wanted big and ludicrous and silly, with swords and airships. That's pretty much what I got.

No doubt about it...it's trash! But I'd be lying if I didn't admit I had fun with this one. (Movie Review for Parents also available)

It's as though the screenplay was brainstormed by Alexandre Dumas and Jules Verne...pure multiplex mulch, as disposable as it is entertaining.

A moment's patience is soon rewarded by Anderson's vast store of rich, intoxicating imagery.

A stupid movie (in 3-D!) that owns its baser instincts, doesn't try to be anything else and reminds us that there are still some modest pleasures to be had from it.

Check your sense of reality at the door and enjoy the lavish costumes, nonstop action and well-rendered sets.

Fans of Pirates and Gulliver's Travels may be tempted by this giddy adaptation, but those who hold the tales of the Musketeers dearly to heart may feel a little wanting.

Paul WS Anderson turns his attention to the swashbuckling costume adventure genre to see if his trademark brand of visually flashy, empty-headed filmmaking will still pull in the punters when stripped of CGI monsters.

Clearly this is trying to grab a slice of the Pirates Of The Caribbean pie and, while not as polished as Stranger Tides, this is more fun.

It's 100 years since cinema began the first of scores of adaptations of Alexandre Dumas' 1844 story. But none can have been as barking mad as this one.

A jolly romp, plying comedy, action and romance with a healthy dose of skullduggery and heaving bosoms.

Clipping along with a snappy script that isn't afraid to be silly, this rip-snorting swathe of derring-do is thoroughly enjoyable.
