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

Rochefort, Richelieu Henchman: You have an interesting fighting style. Where did you acquire it?
D'Artagnan: Here and there.
Rochefort, Richelieu Henchman: Perhaps there. Certainly not here.

Kung Fu Musketeers just don't seem to cut it...
1 July 2005 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

The Musketeer really did the novel it was based upon no justice what so ever. The movie had incredible stunts and great fights...if you were in the Matrix. These fights are the only reason I give this movie a rating of four.

There is no acting what so ever. Tim Roth, although he can play a great villain, he shows barely any emotion. Justin Chambers is the same way. I'm sure he didn't perform those stunts such as the ridiculous scene where he is pictured jumping from saddle to saddle across moving horses.

This movie brings nothing to the table except fancy martial arts. Keep in mind this takes place in old France. I don't recall the Musketeer's learning how to fight while rolling across wooden wine barrels.

If you are desperate for a fight scene, be my guest. There are certainly some good fights going on in this picture. Everything in between is just a joke. The Musketeer is not the worst movie ever made, but it's far from great.
