Paul W. S. Anderson's take on the Dumas classic is almost like the cinematic equivalent of CliffsNotes.

A befouling of Dumas.

The film may have its fun moments but this adaptation does nothing more than make these Three Musketeers look like a bunch of Stooges.

While you're busy looking at the special effects, you'll begin to notice that there's not really anything in the way of substance like a well-thought-out plot and characters that you care about.

It's fun for a Saturday afternoon viewing, but it will ultimately go down in the annals of movie history as yet another forgettable adaptation.

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

You might mistake the sound of swashbuckling for what it really is: Alexandre Dumas spinning in his grave. Much closer to 'Pirates of the Caribbean' lite than it is to 'The Three Musketeers,' this makes a mess of the classic Dumas tale.

Ugh. Nothing makes sense, it's not funny and the 3D is worthless.

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 actors should have remained dry-docked instead of shipping out on this big, bloated Three Muske-mess.

A frequent choice for transposing fiction into film, The Three Musketeers returns as an action-filled, slight diversion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

So dumb and goofy and ridiculous that it's actually kind of hard not to like on those terms.

So hammy and campy that Alexander Dumas would scarcely recognize this latest incarnation of his swashbuckling tale.

Have we retained nothing of the lessons of Hudson Hawk? Like that early Nineties comical disaster, The Three Musketeers hinges on the secret machinations of Leonardo da Vinci.

Alexandre Dumas isn't merely turning in his grave, he's half way through re-enacting 'Thriller'.

Logan Lerman's adolescent D'Artagnan has a haircut that makes him look like Ally Sheedy, Christoph Waltz imitates a lisping John Malkovich as Cardinal Richelieu, and Milla Jovovitch turns Milady de Winter into an insipid ninja.

Swashbuckler for tweens has tons of action but no heart.

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