Editorial Reviews

Exile and possibly death are in the cards for the Queen of France in this edgy cloak-and-dagger adventure based on Alexandre Dumas' unrivaled tale of THE THREE MUSKETEERS and their reckless, romantic friend D'Artagnan. Supernatural powers and dark mystical forces add an exciting twist to this classic tale.

1.0 out of 5 stars Some things you shouldn't mess with... June 15, 2007
Dumas is one, particularly if you cannot do better. The authors tried to add some supernatural elements to this story and ended up with a long, disjointed film which probably would have been better as a two-parter. Further, the film is not in English. If you watch in English, the characters' lip movements and the dialogue you hear are so disjointed the effect becomes laughable. The swordplay is beyond unrealistic as well---just one of those extended play battles where the directors clearly have no clue what an actual sword battle is. Give me the original movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars See the '74 Version; avoid this one at all costs. September 17, 2007
I have been an admirer of both Dumas' novel and the lovely Emmanuelle Beart for many years. I was therefore overjoyed when I saw this film on the shelf. Sadly, it is the very worst sort of dreck. The filmmakers decided to "improve upon" Dumas' story by introducing supernatural sorcery, and Hong Kong wire work for the swordfights. Madame Beart portrays Milady De Winter as Satanically-possessed (I must assume that the producers were too). The film is only available as a dubbed-in English version, which adds a measure of hilarity. There are so many versions of Dumas' novel, but only one that is worth seeing: the Three/Four Musketeers films of 1973/74, starring Charlton Heston and Michael York.

"D'Artagnan et les trois mousquetaires," pawned off on this side of the Atlantic as "The 4 Musketters," represents a most curious approach to the classic tale by Alexandre Dumas père. Actually, that is too kind, because this 2005 French film makes a bunch of mistakes. But since there are four musketeers, let us limit ourselves to the four biggest mistakes:

First, the film is dubbed. Not "dubbed" as in you can listen to it in English if you want to refrain from reading the subtitles because they are speaking French, but rather "dubbed" as in that is your only option. Remember all those dubbed foreign films you used to make fun of when you were growing up? Well, the dubbing in this film sounds that ludicrous, and the result is that your are unnecessarily distanced from the film as soon as the characters start talking.

Second, this film is the attempt to do the martial arts version of the story. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with that idea, but the execution here is not particularly inspired. I did not check out the credits but whoever was responsible for the wirework in this film must have been relatively inexperienced in that regard because this is nowhere near the state of the art in that area of fight choreography. The net result is another major distraction because even if you accept the idea that this kind of action can work in this movie (which I am willing to go along with), the execution makes it seem like a bad idea.

Third, the film gets Emanuelle Béart ("Manon of the Spring") to play Milady Winter, which is a good thing, but then decides that the character is not simply evil, wicked, bad, mean and nasty, inside she is possessed by devil.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumas fans stay away.... June 9, 2007
I'm a big Dumas fan so I was looking forward to this but;

1. The writers have taken too many liberties with the original story. If they had called it something else and not associated it with the Dumas story it would have still been dreck.

2. I'm not sure what language this is in, but I'm unable to view it in its original language with subtitles, so it sounds like a bad kung-fu movie.

3. I didn't think there could be any worse portrayal of this story when I saw the Disney/Sutherland/Sheen version until I saw the John Woo Musketeer version. Now I have seen a new low.

Avoid at all costs if you are a Dumas fan.
