Anachronisms: Although the artillery pieces used by the rebel (Protestant) garrison at La Rochelle, hidden behind gabions, appear to be more authentic, the loyalist (Catholic) besieging forces appear to have batteries of guns that could not possibly date from 1628, when the garrison surrendered, as these have barrels, and indeed wheels, that are far too slender, and would appear to be replicas of pieces dating from the early 19th century. Both sides also fire projectiles that explode on contact, which wasn't the case. At this point in history, artillery pieces fires solid shot only, not even canister.See more »
Quotes:
Athos:And you mark this: you kill Buckingham or have him killed, it's no matter to me. He's an Englishman and an enemy. But you touch one hair of D'Artagnan's head and I swear, as God is my judge, I'll break you on the wheel with my own hand.
MiLady DeWinter:No. Monsieur D'Artagnan has assaulted me, insulted me...
Athos:[shouts] Since when has it been possible to insult *you*, Madame?
MiLady DeWinter:And he will die for it.
Athos:[produces a pistol] Have you ever seen a woman shot in the stomach? You know me, Milady. Give me the papers the Cardinal wrote just now. I'll give you five seconds.

"By my order, and for the good of the state, the bearer has done what has been done.", 11 April 2003
Author: grendelkhan from Xanadu

Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'Artagnan are back; or more precisely, are still here; for the second half of the Dumas novel. As I'm sure most fans know, this was meant to be part of the complete Three Musketeers, before the Salkinds split it into two films. This led to much litigation and the creation of the "Salkind clause" in movie contracts.

Spoliers-The film takes up where the first part left off; D'Artagnan and the Musketeers have saved the Queen from embarassment and confounded the evil Cardinal Richelieu. D'Artagnan is now a full fledged Musketeer (although, in the novel, he was still just a guardsman).

Now the Cardinal hatches a new plot to persuade the Duke of Buckingham from joining the protestant Huguenot rebels at the city of La Rochelle. Milady is sent to persuade him to change his mind or kill him. Although Buckingham imprisons her, he underestimates the power of her charms. The Duke meets a tragic end and Milady returns to France to seek her revenge on D'Artagnan.

Meanwhile, D'Artagnan rescues his mistress Constance and places her in safekeeping. He learns the true identity of Milady and the mystery behind Athos' melancholy.

The Musketeers are sent to fight at La Rochelle and uncover the Cardinal's plot to kill Buckingham. Although the other Musketeers care little, D'Artagnan owes a debt to Buckingham and tries to stop the plot.

D'Artagnan pays a terrible price for his efforts, but emerges as a lieutenant of the Musketeers. He has taken his place as the leader of the group, but will find little solace in his promotion.

As with the first film, the performances are spot on. Everything is the same, as it was filmed at the same time. It is best viewed as a whole with the Three Musketeers.
