Storyline

Just like her famous Musketeer father, the seventeen-year-old dreamer, Corinne (Kelly Sheridan), yearns to become a brave fighter to protect the French royal family. From the rural landscapes of sixteenth century Gascony, the skilful fencer will find herself in Paris along with her feline companion, Miette (Amelia Henderson), and her horse, Alexander (David Kaye), only to discover that girls are not allowed to become Musketeers. Now, more than ever, Corinne wants to follow her dream - and much to her surprise - the fellow scullery maids, Viveca (Kira Tozer), Aramina (Willow Johnson), and Renée (Dorla Bell), share the same passion. Trained by an unexpected sword master, the four talented girls will have to work as one to thwart an insidious plan and defend the life of the young Prince Louis (Mark Hildreth). However, are they meant to be the first female Musketeers? Written by Nick Riganas

While not the best Barbie movie, it is very entertaining and has a sense of fun
28 September 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

At 17, I know I am a little old for Barbie movies, but there are a vast majority I have enjoyed. I am very fond of Barbie in the Nutcracker which is my personal favourite, and liked Rapunzel and Swan Lake. While Musketeers isn't the best of the movies, and I am not sure what Alexandre Dumas would make of it, it is entertaining and has a sense of fun. True, some of the dialogue is a little ropey(although I loved "we're here to save the prince not date him") and there are one or two slow moments in the plot. However, the animation, while not as stunning as the animation in Nutcracker, is colourful and overall the film is lovely to watch. The soundtrack is lovely with its highly memorable "All for one, and one for all", showing the importance of standing together, and the four female protagonists are very appealing. Plus the little kitten is very cute, and Phillippe is a convincing enough lead villain. The voice acting is most impressive; Kelly Sheridan makes Corrine daring, brave and resourceful, and that was lovely to see. Tim Curry, as always,(he very rarely puts a foot wrong, and I would like him to get more recognition than he's getting at the moment) is superb as the voice of Phillippe, with his velvety voice and swatty laugh, he was perfect as the villain. What a genius the casting director is for casting him, and anyone who saw Nutcracker will know he was the voice of the Mouse King, and he was terrific as that character too. All in all, while bearing little resemblance to the Dumas classic, this is still a hugely enjoyable animated film, and I do hope it gets a higher IMDb rating than it's got at the moment. Then again, it is early days, but let's keep our fingers crossed. Preschoolers will definitely love it. 8/10 Bethany Cox
