The three best of the disbanded Musketeers – Athos, Porthos, and Aramis – join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D’Artagnan, to stop the Cardinal Richelieu’s evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Milady. Rochefort, the Cardinal’s right-hand man, announces the official disbanding of the King’s Musketeers. Three, however, refuse to throw down their swords – Athos the fighter and drinker, Porthos the pirate and lover, and Aramis the priest and poet. Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D’Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal’s plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King and Country.
User Reviews: This film is but a true fun adventure. It’s not to be taken absolutely serious. Nor a direct adaption of the classic book. Has quite notable performances by Kiefer Sutherland, Michael Wincott, Rebecca De Mornay, Gabrielle Anwar, and Paul Mcgann. The cinematography as well is noteworthy, two shots that stand out, that i always use in compilations, the shot of them riding across the plains, and when they charge the castle at the end, with an army of musketeers behind them; always takes my breath away. This is a fun movie! Watch for an escape of reality.
