From Amazon.co.uk

Did we really need another big-screen version of The Three Musketeers? There have been six or seven versions of Alexandre Dumas's classic tale of swashbuckling intrigue and sword-fighting heroism in 17th-century France since the birth of motion pictures, so the question of need really doesn't really enter into it. This whiz-banging update is designed for a new generation of 21st-century entertainment seekers, and it comes complete with the kind of over-the-top CGI effects, novel 3D tricks, and ramped-up action that consumers of a franchise like Pirates of the Caribbean have come to expect. In fact, it's no secret that the American, German, French, and British producers were expecting to launch their own Pirates-like series for a long string of Musketeer movies that might inspire the same kind of dedicated followers, not to mention profits. But this exciting and well-intentioned new brand of Musketeer mayhem probably won't leave viewers hungry for another dose--or two, or three, or four.

The helmer is Paul W.S. Anderson, the same director responsible for the Resident Evil series as well as dark, violent sci-fi entries like Mortal Kombat, AVP, and Death Race. He brings a similar heavy hand to the action sequences, many of which are quite spectacular, especially a truly grand finale staged aboard dueling tricked-out airships ostensibly designed by Leonardo da Vinci. He also brings a light touch to the comedic elements that often cross over into battle territory, although not as many of the gags fly as high as the raucous and cleverly staged action. The story follows Dumas's original tale when convenient and leaps awkwardly into flights of somewhat misplaced fancy when it can't make the familiar version of the musketeers' rebellious escapades fit into its narrative needs. The adventure-seeking peasant D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) makes his way to Paris hoping to join the musketeers, the special squadron sworn to protect the vaguely stooge-like king of France (Freddie Fox). In short order he has met and made a bad first impression on the three most notorious musketeers, Athos (Matthew MacFadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and Aramis (Luke Evans). These are our heroes, and their performances run the range from fair to pretty good. That is admittedly faint praise, but fortunately there are an equal number of villains to balance out the gamut of hammy scenery-chewing. There's Orlando Bloom as the mustache-twirling Lord Buckingham; Milla Jovovich as Milady, a backstabbing seductress who has as much kick as she does in her role as queen of the Resident Evil team; and Mads Mikkelsen in a return to terrorising mode as a one-eyed, soulless heavy in the employ of the church. Topping them all is Christoph Waltz, who brings to his Cardinal Richelieu the same kind of menacing charm that made Colonel Hans Landa so deliciously hiss-inducing in Inglorious Basterds. What makes this restructured Musketeers feel a little off is the contemporary vernacular peppered throughout the dialogue. It's clearly targeted to a teen and young-adult audience in the hopes that they will want more of this mix (think Pirates again). The story is skewed young, with Logan Lerman and Gabriella Wilde as a lady-in-waiting getting more plot time than they can handle in their professional capacity as actors. But there are abundant subplots and everybody gets one, the costumes are spectacular, and the sets ooze lavish detail. The 3D is fairly lackluster, so home-market viewers really won't be missing anything on that front. What they'll get most of is a breezy, stunt-studded, action-packed, and affably affected take on a literary chestnut that, by the way, is also sequel-ready. --Ted Fry

4.0 out of 5 stars Behold! The Clockpunk Musketeers! 26 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As the other reviews for this film will suggest, it's best to watch this film expecting a swashbuckling adventure which gleefully dispatches with historical accuracy - if you're wanting an adaptation which is true to the historical period in which the Dumas novel was set, you'll only be annoyed by this film (I can't remember D'Artagnan being Californian in the book...).

Instead, think of this film as a cover version of the Dumas story by Jules Verne fans cranked up on sugar, which replaces horses and carriages with airships. The expected armoury of swords are accompanied by the King Louis XIII era's version of machine guns. If something can be blown-up, it will be. If a device can be given a steam-punk or, indeed, clock-punk makeover, the production design department will be all over it.

The performances are mostly fine - though Matthew Macfadyen is an excellent stand-out as the cynical Athos - and most of the actors seem to have been given free reign to have fun with their characters. Orlando Bloom, as the Duke of Buckingham is channelling Ziggy-era Bowie and wearing Lady Gaga's dancers cast-off wardrobe to marvellous effect.

I suspect that nobody in the cast was under the impression that they were in an Oscar-bait film and have calibrated performances accordingly, nobody more so than the charmingly villainous anti-hero of the piece, Cardinal Richelieu, embodied by Christoph Waltz as part-venerated religious leader, part-Snidely Whiplash schemer, leading a merry dance around his foppish royal charges with a smoothly venomous look in one eye and a manner which recalls the affronted surprise of a career politician caught with his fingers in the biscuit barrel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well known tale with a twist 28 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good clean fun with the same old story. Add in the twist of the air baloons and it's just the same tale, updated a bit and with something to beef the story up a bit. Suitable for kids of virtually all ages with lots of swords, little in the way of violence, music, bangs, a classic goody , bady (dressed in black) a villian and a heroic youngster. Good stuff with lots of bit parts by well known big name stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars All for one and one for all 20 Oct 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
This is a good fun romp, the latest version of the classic tale is not to be taken seriously in any way whatsoever. Done very tongue in cheek with good action scenes and decent performances, this is a good fun film the whole family can enjoy though it has to be taken with a huge pinch of salt as 17th century airshps do battle. Yes, you read that right, airships. The cast are all good, all the classic characters are there, D'artagnan, Porthos, Aramis, Athos, Milady, Rocehfort, the Cardinal, it starts with the musketeers on a mission impossible type mission that goes wrong, then goes to a year later with D'artagnan heading to Paris to be a musketeer, the classic story, and gets involved in a plot involving Lord Buckingham and his airships. The film is daft, yes and takes liberties with the plot of the novel but as i said it's all done very tongue in cheek with everybody involved hamming it up like there's no tomorrow. And the end screams sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly entertaining period romp 2 Dec 2012
By Cartimand TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
I didn't have particularly high hopes for this latest version of Dumas' ripping yarn but, by 20 minutes in, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. If you can excuse the steampunk styled anachronisms, this movie actually follows the original novel reasonably closely. We have the dashing young d'Artagnon from a noble but impoverished family, heading to Paris to seek fame and fortune. Advised by his father not to shy away from trouble, he soon picks fights with the evil Rochefort (superbly played by Mads Mikelsen) followed by three battle-hardened and world-weary Parisians, who turn out to be the musketeers of legend. The Macguffin of the queen's jewellery is in here too and Milla Jovovich as Milady is far more convincing and comfortable than she was as Joan of Arc.

It's fun. It's witty. It's a bit camp (the fashion-conscious King Louis and Orlando Bloom's Buckingham in particular). The 3D is quite impressive and adds an extra element to the already significant amount of eye-candy on offer here. Blu-ray picture quality is exceptional. The soundtrack is pretty good and very clever use is made of surround sound.

Obviously you'll need to suspend disbelief to a significant degree at the zeppelin dog-fight sequence but, if you're looking for a swashbuckling romp that is played with huge gusto and showcases the 3D medium almost to the degree of Avatar or Prometheus, The Three Musketeers 3D is certainly worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Une version incroyable et ridiculeuse but fun 26 Aug 2013
By Ken Raus VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Dumas meets Verne in this comic cartoon version of Les Trois Mousquetaires which is played mainly for fun like a steam punk 21st century Carry On Musketeering which has a very good orchestral score.

I can't comment on the 3-D as I bought a French dvd which may run slightly shorter for the option of a French dub for linguistic authenticity which,of course doesn't bother most lazy Commmonwealthers at all but it does give this popcorny film that little frisson of realism removing the generic and smug posh and cockney accents that homogenised Spielberg and Jacksons The secret of the Unicorn and indeed,the Lord of the Rings...without the dub 1630's English soldiers at the Tour de Londres speak French albeit that's slightly more likely then as than now.

As to the thespians,a fat English comedian plays his stereotypical silly self in a cameo no different to his buffoon role in Lesbian Vampire killers which was great fun despite its relative critical panning and teutonic amazon Jovovich does her killer feminist acrobatics from her series of sci-fi films,a Dane does his one-eyed psychopath again so that the film is full of typecasty tropes which makes the style a tad predictable but still zesty enough bubblegum fun for all that,it's a populist not literal or literary version...to make true versions of famous books one would need the money for filmy lengths inattentive audiences might not even find endurable like The Lord of the Rings was which was exceptional because of the much more recent Tolkien book cult that underpins the films in which Bloom wore fair hair and blue eyes like the Englishman he doesn't look like here-his performance in this film is excellent,though,even an advance for an actor oft accused of woodenness which isn't apparent here.
