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
There is a ship in the harbor with a Plimsoll line. This was not invented until 1870 to stop ship owners from overloading ships. See more »
[five Cardinal's guards ride up as Athos and D'Artagnan prepare to duel]
Only a fool would try and arrest us twice in one day.
You're under arrest.
Are you coming peacefully or do you intend to resist?
Oh don't be so stupid, of course we intend to resist! Just give us a moment, all right?
[to his comrades:]
Five of them, three of us. Hardly seems fair.
Maybe we should give them a chance to surrender.
Excuse me, but there's four of us.

I particularly liked the evil performances of Rochefort (Michael Wincott) and Cardinal (Tim Curry). The rest of the cast includes plenty of A-list types such as Keifer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Oliver Platt, Rebecca DeMornay, Gabriel Anwar, and Chris O'Donnell. There are more great one-liners in this movie than a Clint Eastwood film, a Sean Connery film, and a Arnold Schwarzenegger film combined. This movie is definately worth seeing and worth owning. Again, Tim Curry and Michael Wincott's performances really do it for me. Evil!
