Storyline

D'Artagnan has become a Musketeer. Protestants hold La Rochelle, and the Queen loves Buckingham, who'll soon send ships to support the rebels. Richelieu enlists Rochefort to kidnap Constance, the Queen's go-between and D'Artagnan's love. The Cardinal uses the wily, amoral Milady de Winter to distract D'Artagnan. But soon, she is D'Artagnan's sworn enemy, and she has an unfortunate history with Athos as well. Milady goes to England to dispatch Buckingham; the Musketeers fight the rebels. Milady, with Rochefort's help, then turns to her personal agenda. Can D'Artagnan save Constance, defeat Rochefort, slip de Winter's ire, and stay free of the Cardinal? All for one, one for all.

Trivia

Cardinal Richelieu (Charlton Heston) says to d'Artagnan (Michael York) that he has no personal enemies, only enemies of France. This line is in neither the original novel nor the script. Charlton Heston came across this quote of the Cardinal's when researching the role, and asked director Richard Lester to find a place to include it in this movie. See more »

Goofs

After the bedroom fight between D'Artagnan and Milady, in the café scene, when D'Artagnan stands up and accidentally drops a piece of jewelry on the table, Athos grabs D'Artagnan's hand with his right hand while his left hand is holding a pipe in his mouth. In the next scene, Athos is holding his left hand over D'Artagnan's, while his right hand is holding the pipe. See more »

Excellent
8 December 2004 | by riscott-1See all my reviews

This movie is excellent. The Four Musketeers, along with the first movie, are the only movie versions that are remotely accurate to Alexandre Dumas's masterpiece novel, The Three Musketeers.

The action and sword fighting in this film are great. They only add to a great story, and don't try to make up for a poor one.

The only drawback is the portrayal of Raquel Welch's character, Constance. In the movie, she is too clumsy and ditsy. Constance is supposed to be smarter.

Overall, I thought this film was great. I would recommend reading the book. However, if you hate reading, then you should watch this movie, along with the Three Musketeers, because they are the closest to the book. The Four Musketeers shows that it is possible to make a version of the Three Musketeers that's accurate to the book and still enjoyable to watch.
