1.0 out of 5 stars We had an off day..., 14 Mar 2014
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
After failing in a scheme to steal Leonardo Da Vinci's airship blueprints, the Musketeers are disbanded by Cardinal Richelieu leaving Athos, Porthos and Aramis on the streets of Paris.

D'Artagnan has set off from Gascony with dreams of becoming a musketeer himself, not realising that they have been disbanded.

D'Artagnan manages to offend Athos, Porthos and Aramis on different occasions and challenges them all to duels.

However before the duels can take place they are attacked by guards, trying to arrest them for illegal duelling. The ex-musketeers and D'Artagnan fight off the soldiers, leading to the four men becoming a band with the motto of "All for one, and one for all".

Count Richelieu is not only determined to be rid of the musketeers, but also schemes with Athos' former lover Milady to undermine the reign of King Louis and his wife....

I usually like Andersons movies. They are all lambasted by studios, but since his movie 'shopping' I have enjoyed his popcorn flicks, because they aim to entertain the masses, and not to bother the grey matter.

It stops here. From the word go, I knew I wasn't going to enjoy this, one was because it was in 2-D and it vexed me that every character at one point aimed something at the screen, and secondly, it seems that Anderson has become self aware and has just made a movie that even he wouldn't enjoy.

It's nonsense and no amount of talent on screen can make up for the turgid script, lame performances and the longing for Alan Rickman to appear on screen and chew the script up.

There is no continuity and even though the though of airship battles and bullet time flips were endearing, on screen they feel old.

It's a rare case of me thinking that the 3-D may have improved the film, and the twist of the knife was the promise of a sequel.

Never before have I longed for Sheen, Sutherland, and Platt.

A bad movie.
