Get Rid Of The 'Star',
This review is from: The Three Musketeers [DVD] (DVD)
Fairly enjoyable, well directed swashbuckler which is almost a 'steampunk' homage to the Richard Lester version, even down to Planchet being played by a rotund English comedian and a few audible mutterings by the extras. And far better than the American version of a few years ago.
Macfadyen is as always excellent, Stephenson and Evans pretty good, Mikelson makes a strangely likeable villain and Bloom is allowed to chew the scenery as Buckingham.
Now here's the problem, the obligatory american they got to play D'artagnan to appeal to their market, lets the whole thing down. Everyone else is talking in understandable English, but he has to talk with that incomprehensible american drawl. Even poor old Dexter Fletcher has to adopt an American (by way of West Country) accent to play his father! Jovovich makes herself understandable why can't Lerman? His acting also leaves a lot to be desired. In such distinguished company, you'd think he would up his game.
