Load of rubbish!!
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
Just intense enough to provide a much-needed diversion, just lightweight enough to make you forget about it soon after it’s over. It’s not exactly “good,” per se, but it does what it sets out to do in terms of putting us on edge, which makes it … successful?
Worth seeing just to witness how winsome it is.
It's not your traditional Three Musketeer's story, but I think it was a creative take on it. I can see why some people wouldn't like the changes, but I feel like they help to keep the story entertaining.Some of the pacing in the film is weird and the actions of some characters could seem a little humorous, but overall it's a fun movie that should be entertaining to those who just want something to take them out of the real world.
Let's put aside the fact that it doesn't follow the original message of the story or, you know, the story itself. It can be forgiven for that, as well as asinine elements like Milady surviving and the Musketeers deciding that the best way to forestall a war between France and England was to blow up the Duke of Buckingham's house. The high production value adds it's part to make it at least visually interesting. The continued appearance of familiar faces will make you say "oh, it's so-and-so", which is just about the most fun you'll have all movie. The fatal flaw of this film is, without a doubt, the script. It is so cliché and modernized that I amused myself by guessing what line would come next and was right an unnerving amount of the time. The jokes all fell flat, the Mission Impossible style of action made me want to cry, and it was clear that the actors were rushing their way through the lines as quickly as possible to collect their money. It made me smile that someone actually got paid to write this script, and then whoever played Constance got paid to look like she was reading off of cue cards every time she was on screen. Let's talk about the actors, none of whom are French or bothered to try for a French accent. Watching the good guys was like watching paint dry. The Musketeers, who are all good actors, looked bored to tears, and while that might have worked for a time due to the rut their characters are in, it soon became clear that Matthew MacFayden's brain was taking a nap while he let his deep vocal chords say the lines, hoping the baritone would cover the necessary bases. Luke Evans did his hair in a mirror and knew that that would be enough to keep girls watching, so he didn't even bother. Ray Stevenson had the most charisma, and so predictably got the least screen time. Logan Lerman tried, but seemed more like he needed to go back to high school than one of the greatest swordsmen in France. I already discussed whatever Constance was supposed to me. A mannequin, perhaps. It seemed that the King and Queen had the only real character and heart in the entire film, which is unfortunate because she is barely in it and he is a dunce.Oh also there is a character who is supposed to be comic relief played by James Corden. Casting Oscar winners and fan favorite as villains almost guaranteed a complete overshadowing of the heroes, though this didn't make them exponentially more interesting. Christoph Waltz is good enough that he would have to try to fail, but he clearly regretted buying whatever it was that necessitated the salary of this movie. Milla Jovovich pretty much just did what she does every movie, which is not always a plus. Mads Mikkelsen gets a shout out for at least trying to do a good job despite awful lines and zero character development, and per the usual Mads, succeeding very well. At least he looked cool and managed to deliver his lines with a straight face and a certain amount of menace. I do feel that he broke character at the time of his ridiculous death, where I could have sworn that he was visibly relieved at finally being able to leave this travesty of a film. Orlando Bloom alone gets full stars as being the only person, including the audience, having any fun, and having a lot of it. Bottom line is, unless you need a really good laugh, this is all Redbox has to offer or you're a big enough Bloom or Mikkelsen fan that you want to see them as another cool minor character, skip this one.
It's the original Alexander Dumas story about the purloined necklace with a few unusual twists. Some good and some outrageous. A lot of carnage as the 3 Musketeers plus D'Artegnan, engage over 40 young guards, kill most of them, and act like they just finished a quiet game of chess. Later on, muskets and cannons make it less crude. Milla Jovovich (as Milady De Winter) somewhat reprises the "busty" comic role made famous by Rachel Welch in an earlier version of this film. She plays a double spy, but her own interests come first. Gabriella Wilde is very fetching as the love interest of D'Artegnan. It opens with a direct steal from Indiana Jones. Leonardo Da Vinci's Treasure vault is filled with booby-traps. Milady runs away with Da Vinci's plans for a flying airship, which end up with The Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom). He builds an airship and so does France. Such an anachronism! What gas do they fill the "blimps" with? They otherwise resemble giant warships equipped with advanced conventional weapons. To retrieve the necklace, The Musketeers must journey to England and return it to Queen Anne's neck. Otherwise a terrible war will break out. It's complicated! Familiar villains include one-eyed "Rochefort" and Cardinal Richelieu. An airborne dogfight between the airships and a duel-to-the-death on the parapet of the castle rooftop. Actually quite a fun but preposterous movie and much better than I expected. Watch the ending titles for two "Easter Eggs" including one for a (thankfully) never-realized sequel with too many airships to even count!
The three musketeers (2011) is a very poor version/re-telling of the classic three musketeers tale. This version is just poorly written, poorly acted, and to be completely honest, just boring. Logan Lerman was just alright as the lead, could've been a lot better though. Mila really was not good in her role, her performance seemed very wooden and phoned in. The action sequences were honestly just a big fat yawn, NOTHING to get excited about. And the script was just another huge yawn. Overall, this film just is a big yawn, a yawn as far as acting, as far as action sequences, as far as the dialogue/script as well. There really isn't all that much more to say about this movie, it's just boring as all get out, and will not keep your attention at all, so do yourself a favor and just skip this one all together. 1/10.
