When I discovered that the Three Musketeers film was being made by
P.W.S. Anderson I was very surprised. It's one of those classic stories
that are difficult to change into brainless action-adventure movie
without losing the heart and style. But I was very eager to see what
Anderson would do with the material provided by the scriptwriter. I
expected great action movie, with massive and beautiful sets, wonderful
music and well choreographed fight scenes. And the movie is exactly
what I expected it to be.
I don't care whether the plot followers the book or not - I go to the cinema to have a great fun, and great fun I had indeed. It is really done with style but Anderson's haters will never like any of his movies.
Oh the truth is that I could watch this movie, and watch it for hours.
In my opinion it is the best movie adaptation of a video game that has
been made so far.
I like all of Paul Anderson's movies (Event Horizon was great!) but Resident Evil is his best one. The scene with cutting lasers was so amazing that I had to go to the cinema twice to see it. Acting was great as well. I liked Michelle Rodriguez as Rain most.
The sequel however, was not so good. It wasn't bad but lost the climate of the first part. For me it was not a horror but rather a silly action movie. I hope that Paul Anderson will direct the third part.
