Storyline

The three best of the disbanded Musketeers - Athos, Porthos, and Aramis - join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D'Artagnan, to stop the Cardinal Richelieu's evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Milady. Rochefort, the Cardinal's right-hand man, announces the official disbanding of the King's Musketeers. Three, however, refuse to throw down their swords - Athos the fighter and drinker, Porthos the pirate and lover, and Aramis the priest and poet. Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D'Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal's plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King and Country. Written by TheLogicalGhost

The most HOME ALONE-esque version of The Three Musketeers you will ever see!
31 January 2001 | by CowmanSee all my reviews

Boring and inaccurate (predictably so-- this is Disney, folks) retelling of the classic French story by Alexandre Dumas père. In case you don't know, the story concerns a young ruffian that travels to Paris in order to continue the legacy of his father and become a loyal bodyguard of the King (a musketeer). But along the way our excruciatingly lame hero D'Artagnan insists on picking fights with everybody and wasting time, thus missing a hostile takeover of the group he "wants so badly to be a part of." Only three of the most noble musketeers remain, and along with the arrogant asshole D'Artagan they stab villains, inadvertently seduce women, make lame quips, stab villains, kill a dungeon-ridden freak, kill Tim Curry, save the king, stab some villains, and stab some villains. The very first fifteen to twenty-five minutes of this movie seem promising, but it soon becomes very repetitive and predictable (even if you don't already know the story). Also, the musketeers are shown bludgeoning, belittling, shooting, and stabbing victims without any weapons to fight back with-- and they're supposed to come off as honorable men. Fooey. And for a PG-rated movie, it sure did contain a lot of violence and even some gratuitous (although clothed) breast shots.
