Pity it's not available on DVD...,
This review is from: The Return of the Musketeers [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This third item in Richard Lester's series about the Musketeers Athos, Aramis, Porthos and D'Artagnan. Once again our gallant heroes are thrust into the political events of France and England in the 1600s. Once again the truly excellent actors Oliver Reed, Christopher Lee, Richard Chamberlain, Michael York and others entertain us with their feats of glory.
Much like the earlier films, Lester's approach blends comedy with seriousness. Background comments from bystanders, peasants and servants are casually yet thoughtfully strewn across the scenes with great timing; the swashbuckling is not as fierce as in the younger days of the musketeers, but remains entertaining in all respects.
It is a real pity that this item is not available for purchase on DVD.
