Storyline

The three best of the disbanded Musketeers - Athos (Kiefer Sutherland), Porthos (Oliver Platt), and Aramis (Charlie Sheen) - join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D'Artagnan (Chris O'Donnell), to stop Cardinal Richelieu's (Tim Curry's) evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Countess D'Winter (Rebecca De Mornay). Rochefort (Michael Wincott), 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 Louis (Hugh O'Conor) and France. Written by TheLogicalGhost

Rousing action , swashbuckling and fun is this entertaining rendition based on famous Dumas novel,
31 July 2010 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Spectacular swordplay in modern style in this acceptable version of the classic Dumas novel . Walt Disney presents Dumas' exciting story of love and adventure ,¨The three musketeers¨ . For the fourth time is adapted in the greatest Hollywood splendor , the complete romance , the historical characters, the full novel partially as Alexandre Dumas wrote it . It is packed with comedy , derring-do , intrigue, a love story , action , drama and moving swordplay . An awesome casting and lavish production shot in Austria and England make for a fairly amusement swashbuckler . This is the classic version of the Dumas's novel with a handsome Chris O'Donnell in a brave role as a young and handsome soldier of fortune , a dashing, audacious lover. It results to be a slight and hight budgeted retelling about the durable Alexandre Dumas's novel with all star cast. This delightful adaptation based on Alexandro Dumas classic novel starts with the youngster D'Artagnan who arrives in Paris . But he meets with three two-fisted Musketeers , Athos ( Kiefer Sutherland), a rollicking adventurer , fighting to live and living to love , Porthos (Oliver Platt) and Aramis ( Charlie Sheen ). DÁrtagnan learns they are the famous Musketeers and is invited to unite them in their objective to struggle against guards of Cardinal Richelieu (Tim Curry), his deputy Rochefort (Michael Wincott), and an astute secret agent named Milady De Winter (Rebecca De Mornay) who is lovely as a jewel, deadly as a dagger the wickedest woman in all Christendom . Meanwhile, D'Artagnan falls in love with a gorgeous young named Constance (Julie Delpy) , she is a golden-haired beauty entangled in a web of treachery and intrigue. Furthermore , there is developed an intrigue between Luis XIII (Hugh O'Conor ), Queen Anna of Austria (Gabrielle Anwar) , dazzling as her gilded palace for her, men dared a thousand perils , and Duke of Buckingham ; and of course the nasty Richelieu . The musketeers join forces for royal vengeance with the shout : ¨One for all and all for one¨.

It's a recent take on from the immortal novel with big budget and impressive scenarios . The movie contains noisy adventure , thrills, romantic adventure, mayhem and a lot of fights . Amusing swashbuckling with lavish production by Jon Avnet and Joe Roth , glamorous costumes by John Mollo and lush settings by Wolf Kroeger . Agreeable acting by main star cast formed by ageing Brat-Packers as Charlie Sheen and Kiefer Sutherland and enjoyable support players , as the marvelous main actors are completed by stellar cast full of nice and likable performers and several others . Evocative cinematography in the splendor of glimmer color by Dean Semler . Stirring musical score by Michael Kamen with successful song ¨ All for love¨ by Rod Stewart and Adams. Luxurious production design is well reflected on the lush interiors and exteriors filmed at palaces from Austria and UK . The motion picture is professionally realized by Stephen Herek . This classy story is subsequently remade on several versions , firstly take on about this classic is the following : 1921 silent version by Fred Niblo with Douglas Fairbanks and going on the 1935 adaptation by Rowland V Lee with Walter Abel and Paul Lukas ; 1973 amusing version by Richard Lester with Michael York, Oliver Reed , Raquel Welch and Charlton Heston as Richelieu ; 2001 rendition by Peter Hyams with Justin Chambers, Mena Suvari and Tim Roth , among others. ¨The three Musketeers¨ is an outstanding and entertaining adaptation of the classy that will appeal to the costumer genre buffs and it turns out to be a cool adaptation with big budget based on the classic tale . Rating : 6 , well worth seeing . Definitively it is a bemusing swashbuckling, full of action, adventures,romance , comedy with tongue-in-cheek , old-fashioned family romp , broad slapdash and of course , lot of fence .
