A funny, action packed, retro Three Muskateers in the vein of Richard Lester's big screen take off. Wonderful performances and spectacular fencing/fight scenes on a par with the great old swashbuckling films with Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone. In the title role of Panache, Rene Auberjonois (later to be Odo in" StarTrek: Deep Space 9") is brilliant. The production values are top notch as is the direction by Gary Nelson. The scrip by E. Duke Vincent is sharp and clever, perfectly capturing the period . It's romantic and funny and owes a great deal to the great classic film of Cyrano De Bergerac. Altogether this is a great family film, so break out the pop corn and enjoy!
