The Three Musketeers


The Three Musketeers

Critics Consensus

It plays admirably fast and loose with Alexandre Dumas' classic tale, but in every other respect, The Three Musketeers offers nothing to recommend -- or to set it apart from the many other film adaptations.

Movie Info

The hot-headed young D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas' story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D. -- (C) Summit

Audience Reviews for The Three Musketeers

Do they remake Dumas' tale every generation? There's probably a college course waiting to happen that examines Western civilization through the type of Musketeers' story it entertains, yes? This one ... well, the visuals are eyepopping, no doubt, the French court never looking as good. And CGI is used abundantly and at every opportunity (even when it's inopportune), but the characters are given the once over only once - and no more - so there's little to care about. Only Milla Jovovich escapes apathy.

A terrible excuse for a film. Jumped up on CGI and bad acting, I wonder how this movie ever got made.

Old tales updated, more times than not don't really work out well. "The Three Musketeers" is one of those movies. Weak acting, and a generic movie make this a bore, and a big mess. It's the old story of the muskateers and D'Aragnan(Logan Lerman) battling Richlieu(Christoph Waltz), Buckingham(Orlando Bloom), and Milady(Milla Jovovich). Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, this movie is all over the place with action, bad dialogue, and flying ships. I will say this movie has one big thing in it's favor, it is beautiful in high definition. If you can watch this on blu-ray or 3D, then you should watch it just to see all the colors pop. If you get a dvd, or if it's on cable, don't waste your time. There are so many better movies to watch, this is just a real waste.

[img][/img] There's nothing to distinguish this from other film adaptations of The Three Musketeers, action flicks or even Paul W S Anderson films. As far as his work goes he can do this sort of stuff in his sleep. He began and continued the Resident Evil series and remade Death Race which was alright because it was cheesy, gory, mindless, fast paced fun. This is much less interesting and pretty much repeating that formula. It's essentialy a guy action movie with a bit of innuendo thrown in for good measure. The characters are annoying as opposed to likable contrasting Death Race and an overdose of unnecessary CGI is used in an attempt to make it seem remotely interesting. There is less of a plot than his usual work and although it is often quite amusing and boasts some great set pieces, it's not enough to disguise the fact it's a clumsily made, consumerist popcorn movie that makes unremarkable uses of 3D.
