The sword fights were with rapiers, which do not have sharp edges and yet D'Artagnan cut his hand while holding Rochefort's blade. Early scenes had fighters slashing with their rapiers, which are only used for stabbing.
Rapiers could be used for slashing depending on the on the sword smith who created the sword. In writing, depending on the author, they were either described as rapiers or cut and thrust swords. See more »

I was actually going through an IMDb list and saw the rating of this movie as 5.8 so I felt the urge to write a review. I read some comments and it seems there was witch hunt for this nice and entertaining movie. It is not the best movie of 2011 but come on, it is much better than a lot of movies that have way higher ratings. First of all, the action is pretty good. The acting is very well done and the CGI is used professionally. This is a modern approach to the classic three musketeers and I enjoyed it a lot. From my point of view, a remake needs to add some stuff to the original movie and this movie made it successfully.
