Mediocre Modern Take on The Three Musketeers
on October 31, 2014
This movie constitutes the most effective use of 3D effects to have ever graced the Silver Screen within close temporal proximity to Avatar, featuring some of the most majestic architecture, the most elaborate stage sets, the most intricate and impressive costume design, commendable integration of sound effects, great stunt choreography, and great eye candy by way of the stunning, Milla Jovovich, who is featured in this movie showcasing her gorgeous legs, and the ever alluring new comer - British actress, Gabriella Wilde, who will literally take your breath away in what constitutes a modern take of the classic French tale of the three musketeers.
The story revolves around Milady’s plot with the King of England, in collusion with the French Arch Bishop, to plunge the two countries into war in order to depose the infantile French King so that the Arch Bishop will be able to seize the reins of power by stealing the French Queen’s jewel necklace and creating suspicion in the French King that his Queen was having an affair with the King of England by implanting a love letter alluding to the Queen having offered the necklace (which was given to her by the French King) to the King of England, and the Arch Bishop suggesting to the French King that he put the Queen to the test by asking her to wear the necklace to a ball, with the three musketeers and the son of a former musketeer saving the day by retrieving the neck and returning it to the Queen, thereby, allaying the King’s fear that his Queen was unfaithful, thus, avoiding a war.
This movie was scripted to pave the way for a sequel, and is a good way to kill time if you’ve got plenty to spare. Otherwise, don’t waste your money. Try The Man in the Iron Mask instead.
