Storyline

It's 1649: Mazarin hires the impoverished D'Artagnan to find the other musketeers: Cromwell has overthrown the English king, so Mazarin fears revolt, particularly from the popular Beaufort. Porthos, bored with riches and wanting a title, signs on, but Aramis, an abbé, and Athos, a brawler raising an intellectual son, assist Beaufort in secret. When they fail to halt Beaufort's escape from prison, the musketeers are expendable, and Mazarin sends them to London to rescue Charles I. They are also pursued by Justine, the avenging daughter of Milady de Winter, their enemy 20 years ago. They must escape England, avoid Justine, serve the Queen, and secure Beauford's political reforms. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Cromwell is portrayed as leader of the Parliamentarian ('Roundhead') Army and de facto ruler after Charles I's execution. In 1649, however, he was still only second-in-command of the Army (he would not become commander-in-chief until well over a year later, following Sir Thomas Fairfax's resignation). William Lenthall, as Speaker of the House of Commons, was the nearest thing the new English Republic had to a Head of State until Oliver Cromwell took up the reigns of power as Lord Protector in 1653.

A Bummer
22 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Watching "Return Of The Musketeers" is a depressing affair. First off, Roy Kinner (As Planchet, D'Artangnan's loyal sidekick)died while doing a riding stunt (At least they dedicated the film to him). Second, the film just doesn't capture the glory days of the 2 previous films. Maybe that's the point: you can't go home again. D'Artangnan (Michael York, one of the reasons to try to stick with it.)is still a Musketeer (Although an impoverished one)and is recruited to try to find the remaining Musketeers for one last "All For One, and One for All." This is where the film starts to fall apart. First of all, Richard Chamberlain (As Aramis)is not in the film all that much, the late Oliver Reed (As Athos)looks like he doesn't want to be there, and Frank Finlay (As Porthos)seems to be along for the ride. Second, there is some serious miscasting in the likes of C. Thomas Howell as Raoul, Athos' son. He shouldn't be in this film, because he just seems to drag it down. As does Kim Cattrall as Justine de Winter, the daughter of the late Milady (We miss you, Faye Dunaway!)out for revenge. Stick to the first 2 instead and totally forget this disaster.
