Trivia

D'Artagnan did really exist. His name was Charles de Batz and was called D'Artagnan when he arrived in Paris probably because he was coming from the south-west of France (where the movie was partly shot) and where is the little city of Artagnan. See more »

Goofs

The final scene takes place at the palace at Versailles which was not around when Louis XIII was king. It was built by Louis XIV. See more »

Quotes

D'Artagnan: This is not what you think.
Francesca bon Ansau: You have no idea what I think.
D'Artagnan: I-I wish to explain.
Francesca bon Ansau: You behave as though you've never seen a naked woman.
D'Artagnan: Never one quite so... naked.
[sighs]
D'Artagnan: Or so, uh, beautiful.
Francesca bon Ansau: You've seen many ugly naked women?
D'Artagnan: That's not what I meant!

Acceptable on its own limited terms
31 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I dissent from the negative comments based on comparisons to the novel, or earlier " Three Musketeer" movies. This movie has no pretense of remaking the novel, or earlier movie versions ( the Michael York/Raquel Welch version is a classic). It is, at most, a modest "prequel", designed to capture young action viewers, and romantics ( Justin Chambers/ Mena Suvari); dirty old men ( Mena Suvari); and Deneuve fans (as all men ought to be).

Mena Suvari is wooden and ornamental, but Chambers here is at least as good as Heath Ledger in "A Knight's Tale". Deneuve is excellent as always. Tim Roth is a definitional villain, although Stephen Rea is a weak Richeleau. Lesser knowns as the other musketeers , and the French actor as " Planche", add spice.

I am a sucker for swordfighting movies, so loved this one.

There are many worse choices in your video store.
