Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

The Good & Bad Of 'The Muskateer'
2 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The star of the show is Justin Chambers and he gets incidental billing which is ridiculous despite his lack of acting skills. More good and bad news:

BAD - Having a weak lead actor is not the way to have box-office success. Stupid dialog doesn't help either, along with the Rambo action mentality in which the good guy doesn't get hit from close range.

GOOD - Some of the action scenes were spectacular, the best swordplay I've ever seen. The ones at the beginning and the end of the film were the best, with some incredible stunt work. This is beautifully photographed, too. Tim Roth was a good villain, as usual, and the heroes - even if they couldn't act - were fun to watch. The language is tame in here and the film should be rated PG, not PG- 13.
