Movie Info

In this rendition of the Alexandre Dumas swashbuckling classic, D'Artagnan moves through the extravagant sets and beautiful costumes in total silence. One of the more faithful adaptations of all of the versions of Dumas' classic, this is prime Fairbanks, who also produced the movie.

Critic Reviews for The Three Musketeers

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

There is a flare and sweep about the film, with the assembling, cutting and continuity seeming spotlessly correct. Douglas Fairbanks and D'Artagnan are a happy combination.

Exuberantly embraces the melodramatic absurdities of Dumas's moral universe [though] Don Q Son of Zorro did better with this kind of sophisticated European intrigue.

As for the rest of the production, The Three Musketeers is well worthy of its story and its star.

Audience Reviews for The Three Musketeers


This 3 Musketeers movie is just like all the others, no surprises here, it's no better and no worse than any other. Overall it is pretty fun and entertaining, but it's long and has a bunch of boring scenes with the queen and duke and other characters. It could have been better.
