Product Description

The Three Musketeers (Ray Stevenson, Matthew Macfadyen and Luke Evans) are at rock bottom without a cause to fight for when the young and hot-headed D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) seeks their help. Discovering a conspiracy to overthrow the King they are thrown into a terrifying battle against a beautiful double agent (Milla Jovovich) and her villainous employer (Orlando Bloom), fighting to save the crown and the future of Europe itself. Featuring stunning special effects, director Paul W.S. Anderson brings The Three Musketeers to the screen like never seen before.

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

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This 2011 family adventure film carries a ‘12’ rating and follows the main themes of Alexander Dumas’ book quite well, but gives it a new ‘modern’ take and some minor tweaks to keep the story fresh. The three musketeers; Athos [Matthew Macfadyen], Aramis [Luke Evans] and Ray Stevenson as Porthos, are Loyalists to the King and work together with d'Artagnan [Logan Lerman] -a country bumpkin, to save the Queen from the schemes of Cardinal Richelieu [Christoph Waltz]. Helped and hindered by Milady [Milla Jovovich] this latest adaptation offers the viewer a steady blend of action and intrigue. The sets look convincingly ’olde worlde’ and the special effects bring this into the ’modern’ era. The cannonade between the air-ships is a surprisingly good depiction of a naval cannonade as bits of wood make the deck look terrifyingly deadly.
Sure the film has a number of factors that many may not like; steampunk look, flying airships etc but it’s meant to be an adventure. Enter into this as a kind of ‘Chronicles of Narnia; Adventures of the Dawn Treader’, ‘The Adventures of Baron Munchausen’ and with a general tongue-in-cheek attitude and you get the idea and will probably enjoy it, Ultimately it’s a tale of loyalty, friendship, love lost, love won and betrayal. There’s something in this for everyone.
As for the disc itself it opens to the usual copyright warnings before taking you through five different movie trailers, eventually cutting to the main menu offering play, scene selections, special features [basically various making of views and deleted scenes] and set up options [which basically on mine was subtitles and didn’t work -lose a star].
At well under £5 this is a solid buy and gets a well deserved **** rating as a 12 rated film. No sex, no swearing but some graphic scenes of danger rather than gore will probably make it unsuitable for younger viewers.

Format: DVD
The movie opens with a brief historical background. Europe is in turmoil and only three French superheroes can save it!

As the main characters are introduced we get a quick feel for the movie that it will be light, humorous, Indian Jones adventurous, with our heroes emulating superheroes as they enter the secret vault of Da Vinci to steal his invention plan for the "war machine" which looks like an airship. Heart throb Olando Bloom who would have made the idea Aramis, plays a bad guy, The Duke of Buckingham. Aramis is instead played by Luke Evans. Milla Jovovich, stars as Milady de Winter the double agent, the love of Athos (Matthew Macfadyen) and Orlando Bloom. Ray Stevenson is a delightful Porthos which we don't get to see enough on the screen. D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) enters town looking for adventure on his odd looking horse named "Buttercup" which is not very manly, even in France.

D'Artagnan wants to join up with the trio, which due to budget cuts and the control of the evil Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz) has been dissolved. Through various circumstances they are joined together and have a new quest. Milla plays a woman who is skilled with the sword. Her slo-mo moves which she perfected in Resident Evil combat are used in this film. Likewise the foursome fight overwhelming odds.

Gabriella Wilde, plays Constance, a lady in waiting who has the heart of D'Artagnan. She delivers to them their impossible quest, one with little chance of success, having to fight and elude armies in two countries. A negative aspect of the film is the anachronistic warship which gave the movie an uncomfortable "Wild Wild West" feeling, perhaps for the teen appeal. RPG type fighting. Don't look for too much Dumas in this film.

Great movie for the big screen. Good dialogue.

No F-bombs, nudity, or sex. Appears to be kid safe.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Anyone who reviews more than a handful of Hollywood big-budget films is likely to run out of ways to say "entertaining nonsense." Even within a crowded field of films answering that description this travesty of Alexandre Dumas's novel is an extreme example - it is nearly as entertaining as the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" film and even sillier than the third one.

I would be tempted to apply the cliche "so bad it's good" except that, from the bizarre espionage mission in Venice with which the film opens to the surprise ending, the actors and director clearly knew exactly what they were doing - having fun without taking history, the original book, or the laws of physics too seriously, and shamelessly stealing ideas, plot devices, visual presentation and wardrobe ideas from everywhere from "Mission Impossible" to "The Matrix."

Indeed at least one piece of blatant plagiarism was from Mattel's "Barbie and the Three Musketeers [DVD]" where one of the villains of this version of the story, Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich) takes a leaf from the book of the heroines of the Barbie version by removing the long skirts of her elaborate court costume before carrying out an acrobatic burglary in which she has to penetrate utterly anachronistic anti-theft defences.

If the genre of retro science fiction or alternative history which has people adapting nineteenth century technology to build machines with 21st century capabilities long before such devices actually existed is sometimes called steampunk, the extreme examples in this film should perhaps be called sailpunk.
