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

Due to its granular nature, gunpowder of the period was highly susceptible to moisture. Once even a tiny bit of moisture got into any amount of gunpowder, it was very difficult to ignite, even impossible. Therefore it is highly unlikely that any of the muskets, pistols, or cannons used in the final battle would have fired. See more »

Not great, but entertaining
16 January 2003 | by (Cal) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of swashbuckling, this is not a film to miss, as long as you are able to overlook the bad acting and the obvious Asian influences in the fighting.

I have seen worse films. Most definitely. The rating of 4.2 is much too low for this movie, I think a 5.5 to 6 is more appropriate. It's not a great movie by any means, but it does have it's moments.

The opening swordfight in the resturaunt is the best in the movie. At least it was the most believable with the exception of the barrels. I found the ladders and some of the ropeplay in the Versailles to be much more unrealistic. However I tend to like movie due to the sophistication of the choreography, because I am involved in fighting choreography too.
