User Reviews

Modern TV rendition freely based on Alexandre Dumas ; being packed with adventures , noisy action , sword-play and spectacular scenes
19 April 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Moving series created by Adrian Hodges , being partially based on Alexandre Dumas novel , though adding important changes . It is filled with derring-do , intrigue , love stories , drama , swashbuckling and moving swordplay . An awesome casting and big-budgeted production by BBC television , shot in Czech Studios and location make for a fairly amusement swashbuckler . This is the recent recounting of the Dumas's novel with a fine cast headed by handsome Luke Pascualino as hot-headed D'Artagnan in a brave role as a young and handsome soldier of fortune , a dashing , audacious lover and nimble athlete . When his father (Oliver Cotton) is killed , D'Artagnan travels from his family farm in Gascony to Paris and seeks vengeance against his murderers . But he meets with three two-fisted Musketeers : Athos (Tom Burke) , Porthos (Howard Charles) , and Aramis (Santiago Cabrera) , they're rollicking adventurers , fighting to live and living to love . The brightest and best musketeers of the King's Regiment are commanded by Mister Treville (Hugo Speer) , chief of Musketeers , and dispatched to risked assignments . D'Artagnan to be aware they are Musketeers and is invited to unite them in their objective to struggle against guards of Cardinal Richelieu well performed by Peter Capaldi and the astute Milady De Winter (Maimie McCoy) who is lovely as a jewel , deadly as a dagger the wickedest woman in all Christendom . They must defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war . At the beginning of the movie , the map of Europe shows several states and kingdoms of that era ; as Spain is leader in the continent whose power is disputed by France and England , all of them entangled in a web of treachery and intrigue , including their cunning spies , crosses and doublé-crosses . Meanwhile , D'Artagnan falls in love with a gorgeous young , the married innkeeper , Constance (Tamia Kari) , she is a golden-haired beauty . Furthermore , there is developed a series of intrigues between Luis XIII (son of Henry IV) : Ryan Cage , Queen Anne of Spain : Alexandra Dowling , dazzling as her gilded palace for her , men dared a thousand perils ; and , of course , the nasty Richelieu (Peter Capaldi) , as evil as ever . The musketeers join forces for royal vengeance with the shout : ¨One for all and all for one¨. Then , the musketeers whose friendship has become a legend to stir the hearts of men and shouting their slogan set out to help the Queen . Straightforward as well as gallant D'Artagnan and the three musketeers scheme their peaceful plans that are turned upside down , clashing against a malicious Richelieu who is determined to make life as unbearable as possible for the intimate friends and carrying out several missions , such as : to get some valuable letters on behalf of King Louis -in first episode- or facing off a nasty villain , Vadim (Jason Fleming) -in 2º episode- , who attempts to kill Louis XIII and organize a full-scale robbing , while Athos , betrayed by Milady of Winter , is accused for killing and condemned to firing squad , among others .

The series formed by 30 episodes , though won't return for season 4 . This delightful adaptation based on Alexandre Dumas classic novel starts with the youngster D'Artagnan who arrives in Paris and subsequently takes place the known swordplay against the three Musketeers . And shortly after , both of whom join forces versus their enemies . Adequate and colorful cinematography , stunningly shown on the splendorous images being filmed in Czech Republic , including Chateaus , monasteries and palaces such as Château Ploskovice , Strahov Monastery , among others . Glamorous production design is well reflected on the luxurious interiors , impressive sets and exteriors stunningly filmed . Besides , a thrilling as well as evocative musical score . It was professionally realized , including a cool and well provided visual style , fencing , drama and clangorous action in equal proportions .

This classy story has been remade on several versions , as the MGM classic version in musical style by George Sidney with Gene Kelly , Paul Lukas , Gig Young , Vincent Price , Frank Morgan and Lana Turner as Milady ; 1973 amusing version by Richard Lester with Michael York, Oliver Reed and Raquel Welch ; 1993 modern adaptation by Stephen Herek with Charlie Sheen , Kiefer Sutherland , Oliver Platt and Chris O'Donnell, and 2001 rendition by Peter Hyams with Justin Chambers, Mena Suvari and Tim Roth , among others. And other recent version : ¨The three Musketeers¨ (2011) that bears remarkable resemblance to this one , being starred by Logan Lerman , Luke Evans , Matthew Macfadyen , Milla Jovovich , Mads Mikkelsen , Orlando Bloom , Til Schweiger , Dexter Fletcher and directed by Paul W. Anderson . ¨The musketeers¨ series (2014) is an outstanding and entertaining adaptation of the classy that will appeal to the costumer genre buffs and it results to be acceptable adaptation with big budget based on the classic .
