Editorial Reviews

High-flying martial arts and gravity-defying stunts come alive in this epic adventure splendidly choreographed by the legendary Xin-Xin Xiong in the style of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The Matrix. With nonstop action and dazzling effects, The Washington Post exclaims "The Musketeer rollicks and rolls!" In a world threatened by war, one young man comes of age and decides to avenge the brutal murder of his parents. An impressive master of combat skills, he reunites the infamous Musketeers and returns them to their previous glory. All for one and one for all, they take off, armed with righteousness, ready to defend true justice. With extraordinary performances by Catherine Deneuve, Mena Suvari and Tim Roth, it's the action-adventure as you've never seen it before!

    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.

    Loosely based on Alexandre Dumas' classic adventure novel "The Three Musketeers," 2001's "The Musketeer" stars Justin Chambers as d'Artagnan who, as a kid, witnesses his parents murdered by the wicked Febre (Tim Roth). As a young man seeking justice, he travels to Paris and hooks up with the three Musketeers (Nick Moran, Steve Speirs and Jan-Gregor Kremp). Meanwhile he takes a fancy to fiery chambermaid, Francesca (Mena Suvari), who is the daughter of the deceased seamstress to the Queen (Catherine Deneuve). Stephen Rea plays the corrupt and despicable Cardinal Richelieu.

    While people love to loathe this film I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was directed by Peter Hyams (director of 1999's "End of Days") and comes across as a less-grim Conan tale switched to 17th century France and plays like 1995's "Rob Roy" with a kinetic Indiana Jones flair, albeit set in France rather than Scotland. The tone is essentially realistic until the swashbuckling scenes take place, which are dynamic, but totally over-the-top.

    If you're a fan of the Conan, Rob Roy, Indiana Jones, Sinbad and Zorro flicks I think you'll appreciate this movie. It's as good or better than most of them. No kidding. Beyond the thrilling action sequences, there are a number of great or near-great elements: Chambers plays a great protagonist and Roth the perfect villain, the latter proved in "Rob Roy" (he's just as wicked here). Not to mention, the lovely Mena is formidable as the babe. But it's the excellent sets and mood that I like most – the cobblestone streets, torches, horses & carriages, villages, castles and 17th century costuming. It's inexplicable that Chambers didn't go on to become a star, like Brad Pitt.

    The film runs 100 minutes and was shot in France, Belgium and Luxembourg.

    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 ›
