When a young soldier dies for the sake of a shag, Aramis, Athos and Porthos band together with a plan to replace the king. Unknown to many, there is a 2nd king, a twin, hidden at birth, then imprisoned for 6 years behind an iron mask. All that remains now is D'Artagnan, will he stand against his long time friends, or do what is best for his country?Written by
After rescuing Philippe, when Porthos and Aramis are sitting on the wall talking, Porthos' hat brim is up on both sides, when Aramis walks away and a bird drops a "gift" on Pothos' hat, one side of the brim is now down. See more »
Why are you so glum?
I expected action. There was no fighting, there was no killing. I was useless.
Porthos, I grow tired of this attitude. You're surrounded by beauty, by intrigue, by danger. What more can a man want? The robins are singing, the pigeons are cooing. Can't you listen to their song?

In some television versions, the scene with Porthos in the hay with the three girls is cut, which provides no explanation as to why he's walking around in a loincloth. However, the three girls can still be seen coming around the corner after the barn collapses. See more »
The only problem with this movie that the plot is a bit implausible, but nevertheless, everything was great. I must say that I've seen this movie more times than any movie in the world and i still say it's great. It has a star-studded cast, and all of them did an excellent acting job (DiCaprio, Byrne, Malkovich, Depardieu and Irons). This is a perfect ensemble cast, it's as if the roles were written for the actors. The acting was just well done. The events are exciting and sometimes heart-wrenching, the music is great, and the dialogue is truly, truly exceptional. Trust me, after watching this movie at least 18 times, I've realized that the dialogue is just superb. I very much recommend the movie, however, the story is very, very far from the original book by Alexander Dumas.
