If you want Dumas's original story in cinematic form, you'll be disappointed. It's been done, and done, and done again, even by Mickey Mouse. This director has chosen not to trudge down the same old rut. Instead, he's created a story parallel to and interlaced with the classic.

As long as you can take this movie for itself, it's fair entertainment. Deneuve is a lovely as ever; her mature, regal look fits the queen's role perfectly. This is a 21st century flick, so there have to be chase scenes - even though it's horse and carriage stuff, the chase scenes are completely up to date. The adventure and intrigue carry the story along well, with a comedic edge that keeps it from turning into a grim parody.

If you want a light swashbuckler, you came to the right place. If you really wanted the classic Musketeers - well, it's been done and done again. You'll just have to keep looking.

While my wife and I are fans of this genre of film, we were at first appalled, and then disgusted by this poorly executed version. Some people have praised the fight sequences, but I found them lacking for the most part, and laughable in others--esp. the men on ropes on the castle's turret, and in the room full of ladders. Why were there so many ladders there anyway? Most disturbing were the inconsistencies in the plot. Why doesn't the hero make it back to the queen BEFORE the bad guys whom he beats up at the river scene? Why does he ride to Paris rather than to the ferry, where he could have saved Lord Buckingham and foiled the cardinal's plot? Why was this movie even made?? Save your money...we were disappointed even though we only rented it.

Well most of the Musketeers in this film did anyway, except for the leading male hero of the film, D'Artagnan! I had no idea this film would be so dull considering that Peter Hyams (2010, Outland) directed it and Tim Roth (Rob Roy, Reservoir Dogs), who is totally wasted here, starring as the bad guy, Febre. The film is just not exciting and I found myself not really caring about the hero's revenge or much of anything else after a certain point. First of all, I have no idea who Justin Chambers (leading man/hero, D'Artagnan) is but I do know he turns out a dull and uninteresting performance in this film. It doesent help that he resembles Chris O' Donnell who played the same character in "The Three Musketeers" with Charlie Sheen and Keifer Sutherland. That movie may have been silly but at least it was entertaining. I would like to see the DVD feature of "Casting Justin Chambers" to find out what they were thinking. Even the one thing that I thought would save "The Musketeer", the fight sequences, were not as exciting as I thought they would be, but they did keep me awake. I had heard the fight choreography compared to "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" somewhere - my answer to that is: go rent "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". The finale sword fight on ladders between Roth and Chambers (their stunt doubles) is of course the highlight of the film but it's over before you know it and I'm still not quite sure how the bad guy died, I'm assuming by sword. I expected Roth to carry the film but that was asking too much. He is still the most exciting character in the film but that isnt saying much, considering the competition. Actually, I was thinking he might use one of those ladders in the final fight to climb out of the movie! Mena Suvari (American Beauty) plays the love interest for Chambers.Read more ›

Alexandre Dumas' classic novel of swashbuckling derring-do, "The Three Musketeers" has long been a favorite of film-makers ever since the silent days of Douglas Fairbanks. From the definitive version with Michael York, Oliver Reed and Faye Dunaway to the extremely campy Disney version with Tim Curry and Charlie Sheen, this tale never ceases to entertain. This latest version uses the old revenge sub-plot in which young D'artagnan (Justin Chambers) not only seeks to become a Musketeer, but avenge his parents' murder at the hands of the villianous Febre' (Tim Roth). In an attempt to "freshen up" the classic adventure, director Peter Hyams uses the classic fight choreography of martial arts specialist Xin-Xin Xiong. In that regard, the movie is a success as the fight sequences are quite amazing. However, the screenplay ignores the rich characters of Dumas' plot while basically reducing the classic trio of Athos, Porthos and Aramis to little more than minor supporting roles. If the role of D'artagnan had been played by a strong actor, it might've worked. However, a rather bland and flat performance by Justin Chambers in the lead as the heroic D'artagnan nearly sinks the entire enterprise. While he looks the part and handles the action scenes well, Chambers seems to have left all emotion on the cutting-room floor. As a result, Mena Suvari tries hard as his love interest, but has nowhere to go. As for the other Musketeers, only Steven Spiers as Porthos comes across with any sense of depth. Jean-Pierre Castaldi provides light humor as the wry mentor/servant Planchet. Catherine Deneuve is a regal delight as the Queen, while Stephen Rea is solid in his role as the crafty Cardinal Richeleu.Read more ›
