The Three Musketeers - Movie Review

A cocky, young man named D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) leaves home to fulfill his dream to join the Musketeers. Unfortunately, due to a disastrous mission a year ago, the three legendary Musketeers, Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and Aramis (Luke Evans), have become cynical, drunk, poor and quite down on their luck. France is now being run by a young boy king who seems to be more interested in the latest fashion than ruling so the church Cardinal holds most of the power who is only held in check by the queen. In hopes of seizing the throne, the Cardinal tries turn the king against the queen with the help of Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich) by stealing the queen's necklace to implicate her having relations with the Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) who is currently in the midst of peace talks with the king. Now it is up to D'Artagnan and the Musketeers to retrieve back the stolen jewels and prevent the take over of the throne and all out war.

The movie is amazing! It is full of action, adventure and romance. All the stuff I like. Heheh. Despite being French story, all the characters sounded English to me. Superb acting by the cast. It was hard to image Orlando Bloom as being evil but he was SO EVIL. Being shot in 3D, it is expected that Three Musketeers had lots of cool 3D effects throughout the movie. I wasn't disappointed. Expect to see flying ships, espionage, betrayal and all around good time fun. There were some nice group sword fighting sequences as well as a nail-biting one-on-one between D'Artagnan and Buckingham. The movie is also nicely set up for a sequel. I can't wait!

The Three Musketeers is in theatres this Friday, October 21st, 2011
