after 12 years of anticipation, what a disappointment
Dumas is probably rolling over in his grave as a result of this "adaptation" of his novel, The Three Musketeers.
Filmed in Atlanta in 1991, Richard Pryor narrates and appears as both a wino and bartender.
Cinematography is horrible. Most of the cast cannot be seen due to poor lighting. The dialog and acting performances aren't any better. Fake and really bad Spanish and French accents don't help either.
Production values are poor at best. The King of Spain in the 1700's apparently had a modern builder who had sheet rock at his disposal. There's even a scene with an electric lamp. One of the peasants and a few of the soldiers/muscatels wear tennis shoes (and they admit to wearing ADIDAS in the script)
Fake facial hair runs rampant.
Although the film was produced in 1991, it more closely resembles something made in the 70's.
Even the non-dream sequences at the beginning of the film are cliche' and are very wooden.
