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 TheLogicalGhost

Did You Know?


One of the previous Musketeer films was The Fifth Musketeer (1979), loosely based on the final novel, The Vicomte of Bragelonne, AKA The Man in the Iron Mask. In that film, the roles played by Charlie Sheen (Aramis) and Kiefer Sutherland (Athos) were played by Lloyd Bridges and José Ferrer. Sutherland appeared with Miguel Ferrer in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), and Sheen appeared with both Lloyd Bridges and Miguel Ferrer in Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993). Chris O'Donnell worked with Miguel Ferrer on NCIS: Los Angeles (2009). See more »

It's Swashbuckling
2 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is what Swashbuckling is all about. It's not a book. It's Hollywood and it's a cartoon. That's what the writer, director and actors envisioned. It's what they portrayed. The basic triumph of good over evil, of justice over self-serving malice. Escapism! And in that light, it's brilliantly done. Come on, it's not a literary masterpiece, nor was it intended to be. It's every child's vision of The Three Musketeers. No different than Burt Lancaster in The Crimson Pirtate. Just plain fun! Have you ever known any real heroes? The archetype is men or women who laugh in the face of danger, give all for those who are weaker and have an attitude of irreverence for all they encounter. They don't think of themselves as greater than others. They just know what their responsibilities are, and they execute them. Sheen, Platt, Sutherland, and O'Donnell all act this out in expert fashion.
