The Three Musketeers (2011)



Critic Consensus: It plays admirably fast and loose with Alexandre Dumas' classic tale, but in every other respect, The Three Musketeers offers nothing to recommend -- or to set it apart from the many other film adaptations.

Movie Info

The hot-headed young D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas' story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D. -- (C) Summit

All Critics (96) | Top Critics (31)

All for one, one for all, but, mostly, one to skip.

Have we retained nothing of the lessons of Hudson Hawk? Like that early Nineties comical disaster, The Three Musketeers hinges on the secret machinations of Leonardo da Vinci.

Even the most liberal viewer is likely to echo Milady's thoughts of D'Artagnan: "You are very amiable, no doubt, but you would be charming if you would only depart."

Call it the Robert Downey Jr. Meets Sherlock Holmes Effect. A classic popular adventure gets overblown, juiced-up, and generally CGI-ified.

October 23, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Most of the time, The Three Musketeers is merely what kids tasked to read the book by their most-hated teacher would assume it would be - boring. I never thought I'd say it but I wish Anderson had just made another Resident Evil movie.

October 21, 2011 | Rating: 2.0/5.0 | Full Review…

This version of the Musketeers story can't decide if it wants to be an old-fashioned tale of swashbuckling adventure and palace intrigue or a cheeky, effects-heavy rethink of some iconic characters a la the Guy Ritchie-directed Sherlock Holmes.

Audience Reviews for The Three Musketeers

Do they remake Dumas' tale every generation? There's probably a college course waiting to happen that examines Western civilization through the type of Musketeers' story it entertains, yes? This one ... well, the visuals are eyepopping, no doubt, the French court never looking as good. And CGI is used abundantly and at every opportunity (even when it's inopportune), but the characters are given the once over only once - and no more - so there's little to care about. Only Milla Jovovich escapes apathy.

A terrible excuse for a film. Jumped up on CGI and bad acting, I wonder how this movie ever got made.

Old tales updated, more times than not don't really work out well. "The Three Musketeers" is one of those movies. Weak acting, and a generic movie make this a bore, and a big mess. It's the old story of the muskateers and D'Aragnan(Logan Lerman) battling Richlieu(Christoph Waltz), Buckingham(Orlando Bloom), and Milady(Milla Jovovich). Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, this movie is all over the place with action, bad dialogue, and flying ships. I will say this movie has one big thing in it's favor, it is beautiful in high definition. If you can watch this on blu-ray or 3D, then you should watch it just to see all the colors pop. If you get a dvd, or if it's on cable, don't waste your time. There are so many better movies to watch, this is just a real waste.
