[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.Read more ›
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.
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.
To begin with, take a look at the cast that surrounds young Susie Amy as she portrays
the inherently awkward Valentine D'Artagnon - daughter of the infamous 1974 D'Artagnan :
Michael York returns to his role as the stumblingly lucky fourth musketeer.
Natasha Kinski takes on a character of the deadly Lady Bolton - who bears
an amazing resemblance to Faye Dunaway's - Lady DeWinter.
John Rhys-Davies as Porthos and Gerard Depardieu as Cardinal Mazarin are also cast as
characters whose purposes remarkably resemble those of the previous 2 films.
So much of the storyline is similar to the 1970's 'The Three Musketeers' and 'The Four Musketeers'
that originality won't receive the highest marks, However, it was still very nicely put together.
While written by Sandra Weintraub yet directed by Steve Boyum a palatable balance is struck.
Valentine's gender is utilized - but Not so overemphasized as to lessen it's appeal to male audiences.
Enjoyable as a swashbuckling story with just enough plot and intrigue to do justice to
Richard Lester's films- which remain - the best Musketeer movies ever made.
