The three best of the disbanded Musketeers - Athos, Porthos, and Aramis - join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D'Artagnan, to stop the Cardinal Richelieu's evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Milady. Rochefort, the Cardinal's right-hand man, announces the official disbanding of the King's Musketeers. Three, however, refuse to throw down their swords - Athos the fighter and drinker, Porthos the pirate and lover, and Aramis the priest and poet. Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D'Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal's plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King and Country. Written by
D'Artagnan is saved from beheading by the other Musketeers, who disguise themselves as a priest and headsman. While this scene is not to be found in the original novel The Three Musketeers, there is a similar scene in the sequel, Twenty Years After, in which the four musketeers attempt to save England's King Charles I by disguising themselves as men working on the execution scaffold.

He is becoming as troublesome as his father.
He is a foolish boy and barely that.
That foolish boy is about to become a man which is all the more reason for us to act quickly. Have our loose ends
[the three musketeers]
been tied up?
Two patrols have been sent.
I trust, Captain Rochefort, that you are doing everything in your power to rid us of these rebels. Don't let having only one eye impair your vision. The loss of the other could be most... inconvenient.

Horrible Hollywood version of classic European story
Incredibly cheesy Hollywood production. The only thing in common with the real Three Musketeers is the names of the characters and maybe 5% of the plot. Not so hot action scenes which include an eastern two-sworded kung-fu guy fought in ruins, as if the castles were ruined when the movie's story is supposed to happen.
Expect to not understand the story if you don't know the original and if you do, expect to be horribly disappointed at the low quality script adaptation. Having actually read the book, my heart bled at hearing the dialogue.
Can't believe I just wasted a couple hours watching this.
