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
During production, Tim Curry was offered the role of the Eighth Doctor in Doctor Who (1996). He was interested in playing the role, but he didn't know how to play the character. One day during filming, Curry approached Paul McGann on how he would play the Eighth Doctor if he was cast. Curry eventually turned down the role because of scheduling conflicts with several movies, and McGann was cast as the Eighth Doctor. See more »

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.
