Critic Reviews for The Musketeers: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

The adventure is good, the characters are better than good, and the playful, often insulting repartee is someting you might hear from college buddies on holiday in Cabo. These Musketeers are worth a bite.

Some of the plot machinations are more than a little far-fetched. But none are fatal to the overall thrust of a series that turns out to be much more than a series of romps and flirtations.

Colorfully drawn. But all inside the lines.

There are some fun sword fights and scuffles featuring attractive, bearded men with occasional humor thrown in but, everything feels a bit stale and safe. There's nothing fresh here that makes the case for returning to this well-known story again.

While the sword-fighting is not exactly imaginatively staged, it is violently convincing, and so is the The Musketeers. With solid production values, it has set itself up to tell an old tale in a fun, entertaining way.

Even viewers who are just now meeting [Dumas'] iconic foursome will have some difficulties with this uneven BBC adaptation that begins with an overly complicated backstory and fails to fully make up for it with compelling characters and must-see action.
