Parody of a classic

Many people have a reverence for these classic Dumas works and imho the definitive rendition was the David Lean series. Consequently, they will find the title of this hodgepodge of a film rather misleading, as it only provides a very loose framework to hang the stories on. I say 'stories' because there are several going on simultaneously, which makes things a bit confusing, especially as the logic that is supposed to hold such things together too often gets jettisoned. First of all, this is a 'director's wife' vehicle, so Mila Jovovitch gets to do her Resident Evil tricks in a 17thC context. But it is also a teen hearthrob vehicle for Logan Lerman, so we get all the brash arrogance one would expect from the leading figure in a high-school play. And then there's the HK martial arts, Matrix and PotC action that is the dominant feature of the film. The cast is actually good, but somewhat wasted as they are basically connecting elements to keep the action flowing. Anyway, I think if one is forewarned that this film is a comedy that merely uses the subject matter as a loose structure, much as the Monty Python team used the Arthurian legend and the Bible, then it will be far more enjoyable than expecting another rendering of the Three Musketeers story. Whether you can get round the technological abuses is another matter - as it takes us into Connecticut Yankee territory. I really don't see where they can go from that closing sequence, as it would suggest a complete rewriting of European history, or a sudden updating to a WWII-type scenario, with the musketeers leading French resistance to the hated British occupying power (who consider that they're merely taking back the Norman territories that were stolen from them).

complicated? Absolutely yes!

A really nice movie. Paul W.S. Anderson has made a chaotic world of it: constant fighting, war, action, ... that was still intriguing me. Normally I have a dislike of historical movies, but this movie is an exception (many versions have already been made of '' the 3 musketeers ''. The last filming was in 2011, the film we're discussing now). The author always warns when it becomes too elongated, the scene is swapped or the situation changes, making it fascinating. so initially I found the movie moderate.

The film is about the fact that the musketeers must win the plan for the warship, which they can then use against the enemy. They are also successful, but there is betrayal in the game, causing the plans to fall into bad hands. They were thrown down until a boy from Gascony also wanted to become musketeer. He gave them courage again. In addition, they avoid a war.

I'm sorry that it takes a long time for you to be in the story. In that regard, the author should do better. You can also observe that there are many transitions of scenes and places, which you do not necessarily see a connection between those transitions. At last if you saw them fighting, it became very annoying and boring in the long run. But, as I said, the author can keep it interesting.

It is a must for people who are interested in history and culture. Of course, you can always watch movies and you do not care what kind of genre. This movie is not really tailored to me because I prefer horror, action, comedy and fantasy in my movie. Therefore I give a 3.5 / 5. My opinion about the movie does not change: it remains a moderate movie.

This is a very bad movie.

This is a very bad movie. I of course knew that before watching it, but I hoped it would be one of those mindless, turn-your-brain off and enjoy bad movies. You know the type. The kind of movie that everyone tries to convince you Suicide Squad is. But, alas.

I was hopeful because The Three Musketeers is a classic tale with source material ripe for adaptation. Add in Christoph Waltz as a scenery-chewing villain, and there was real potential. But, in Paul WS Anderson I trusted, and therein lies my mistake.

There are two glaring issues with this movie as I see it: an absolute failure to establish any sort of charming camaraderie between the titular "Musketeers", and lackluster action sequences. The former issue is a critical failure, because the heart and soul of a movie about the Three Musketeers has to be a believable relationship between the characters we are supposed to root for. Instead we spend no time with our heroes, with nothing to establish why they are in fact our heroes, before the film moves on and leaves us behind.

Regarding the latter issue, I admit that perhaps I am bringing a bias to my viewing of this movie since plenty of other people have praised the action. Watching martial arts movies where the actors are real- life practitioners of the fighting style they are using has made me much less tolerant of poorly-trained actors that look like they are trying harder to remember the routine they practiced than actually sell the fight. I was left totally uninspired and, quite frankly, bored by the swordplay featured in the film.

There are certainly other issues with the film as well. Something you can always count on in a Hollywood-produced period piece is the inconsistency with which an accent will be utilized, and The Three Musketeers certainly didn't let me down in this regard. Matthew Macfadyen goes with British, Logan Lerman sticks to American, Christoph Waltz does his best French, Milla Jovovich is doing...something, and Orlando Bloom does his best Spongebob mocking meme a good 6 years before it becomes a thing.

The CGI was blatant and gratuitous, though I will cut the film some slack since I watched in 2017 so the technology is already outdated. But even after everything I've brought up, one of the most frustrating issues with this film is the way the plot absolutely jumps the shark at the end. Without saying too much, we get a thoroughly unsatisfying conclusion to what should have been the explosive confrontation between the Musketeers and Waltz's Richelieu.

Ultimately this was a waste of time. I know this film grossed more than its budget, but when adding in marketing costs it doesn't seem like it made a profit. If anything, I would assume it broke even. And in a world where we give Transformers and Johnny Depp's latest Pirates dreck billion-dollar grosses, at least this movie seems to have failed.
