Back in 1973, Richard Lester made a film of Alexander Dumas' popular story 'The Three Musketeers,' a delightful film, with Michael York as young D'Artagnan. After 31 years, Hallmark Entertainemt took up the same material to make this TV Mini-series, again starring Michael York as "older" D'Artagnan, with Susie Amy as D'Artagnan's daughter Valentine. This time, it is Valentine who goes to Paris, encounters three musketeers, and vows 'All for one, one for all,' to protect the king from the plotting Cardinal.

[NEXT GENERATION MUSKETEERS] In short, this is the story of 'The Three Musketeers' of the next generation. If you remember the story of Dumas's book (or Charlie Sheen's filmed version if you like), put in the sons of Alamis, Atos, and Porthos in their original muskteers' place, and you know what you will see in this film. Instead of deadly femme fatale and spy MiLady, you see Lady Bolton played by Nastassja Kinski. In place of Cardinal Richelieu, you get Cardinal Mazarin played by Gérard Depardieu.

Considering the origin of the TV film, the actions are decently done (often very acrobatic for this kind of film), and the locarions are beautiful. The acting is reasonable, if not exceptional, and it is amusing to see a female muskeeter in the central role, though the unique casting could have been more effective with deeper interpretation of being a female musketeer. Anyway, Susie Amy succeeds in making the heroine a likable one, with strong will occasional humor.

The film has, however, deep flaws. One of them is, the film has too many characters. You see eight musketeers in one film -- the original four and their children. John Rhys-Davies appears as Porthos (no, not his son), but I'm afraid he is not required to do much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun addition to the Musketeer pantheon July 18, 2004
Format:DVD
What fun it is to see Michael York reprise his role as D?Artagnan one last time, and what perfect casting to have John Rhys-Davies play one of the other aging Musketeers.
At almost three hours this Hallmark movie must rank as one of their best productions, great dialogue, location, cast and plot the adventure ranks favorably alongside the Richard Lester favorites from the 1970s.
Truly stunning in beauty and talent the likeable Susy Amy turns in a remarkable performance as D?Artgnan?s daughter Valentine who is determined to introduce the Musketeer?s to women?s lib by following in her esteemed fathers footsteps and becoming the first female Musketeer.
However, Natassja Kinski is just as devious as her predecessor Faye Dunaway, and shows her gratitude for Valentine?s saving her life by framing her for murder of the King?s mistress several scenes later.
With a document that calls into question Louis? birthright Valentine and the sons of the other Musketeers race across France in search of the traveling beautiful Spanish princess who is on her way to Paris in secret to wed the French king in a move that it is hoped will end the war with Spain. Not to stop her, but to protect her.
The movie is so much fun I am left echoing the thoughts of the other reviewer ? I wish their was a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars La Femme Musketeer July 10, 2004
Format:DVD
I have to say that I feel that this movie can easily join the ranks of the other "Musketeer" movies. Hallmark did a wonderful job on this film, as did everyone on screen.
Susie Amy (Valentine) did an amazing job, especially since there was a lot of weight on her shoulders to carry this film, but she pulled it off. Just as amazing was Nastassja Kinski (Lady Bolton). I don't think I've ever seen her like this, and I only wish there was more of her in the movie. It was wonderful seeing Michael York reprise his role as D'Artagnan. Caspar Zafer (Gaston), Andrew Musselman (Antoine) and Niko Nicotera (Etienne) as the Musketeer's sons made me laugh with nearly every thing they did.
All in all, this really is a great movie. Dare I say, one of Hallmark's best. This is one you can watch over and over again (considering I've watched it twice already) and never get tired of it. Trust me, this movie is one to be seen.

Format:DVD
In this Hallmark TV production Louis XIV is still under the thumb of Cardinal Mazarin (Gerard Depardieu). It's 1660, and the Cardinal will brook no opposition. Mazarin sees personal advantage in continuing the war with Spain, but the callow Louis is beginning to think otherwise. Then there's the king's arranged marriage to the Spanish Princess Maria Theresa, the pesky possibility that Louis just might not be rightful king of France and the festering resentments of Mazarin's deadly creature, Francois Villeroi. A certain letter is all Mazarin needs to keep Louis under his control. Cardinal Mazarin doesn't hesitate to turn those who oppose him into angels.

All this has nothing to do -- yet -- with Valentine D'Artagnan (Susie Amy), who was taught to fight with a sword by her father and who is determined to be accepted as a Musketeer. D'Artagnan (Michael York) sends her off to Paris with his encouragement. "You've got two good reasons to be brave," he tells her. "First, you're a Gascon. Second, you're my daughter. Always fight at the least provocation and never submit to insults or edicts. Above all, remember who you are...a D'Artagnan!"

It's not long before Valentine is up to her pommel trying to save the king and to foil Mazarin's schemes. She is accused of murder by Mazarin's beautiful agent, Lady Bolton (Nastassja Kinski) and must rescue the Princess. Valentine often skewers members of the Cardinal's Guards. Even with the aid of the three sons of Porthos, Athos and Aramis, who have just been accepted as Musketeers themselves, all looks like France might be lost. But then the old men show up. With Valentine and their sons by their sides, they show how it's done.
