The Three Musketeers ride again in this three-dimensional revamp from Impact Pictures and writer/producer Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Resident Evil). Percy Jackson & the Olympians' Logan Lerman toplines as D'Artagnan, the brash young man who bands up with the famed trio (Luke Evans, Matthew Macfadyen, and Ray Stevenson) to fight the corrupt the dreaded Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). Mads Mikkelsen and Milla Jovovich co-star in the Summit Entertainment release.~Jeremy Wheeler
Everyone knows about the 3 Musketeers in some way or another. The book is a classic and worth reading, but this is not the book version. The plot is predictable for all that are familiar with the various versions of the 3 Musketeers.
But a modern spin on the story with various inventions originally linked to Leonardo Da Vinci, breaths new life into this version of the story and makes it worth while watching. Be warned not to expect this to be like the classic tale - for that you may want another version of the story. However, if you are a fan of the 3 Musketeers and enjoy a renewed adventure full of action and imagination, then this is for you! Enjoy!
I bought this movie for movie night with my daughter. We both thought it was really good.
I would recommend this to a friend

A modern update to Dumas' classic story...
I think it is safe to say that this version of the movie does take some liberties in how it reimagines Alexander Dumas' original story. However to same sentiment remains. The update serves to freshen the action and create a movie that todays movie going generation would enjoy. This is fun and fresh version of a classic tale that I really enjoyed.
I owned the regular Blu-ray version but since I recently upgraded to a 3D Tv this was on my 'must buy' list. From the witty one liners to the fight scenes, this movie does not disappoint. 3D visuals just add the extra punch this movie needed. Bringing to life the vivid details of period clothing, sword fights, explosions, and the buildings/environment, if you have a 3D Tv buy this movie. You will not be disappointed.
Whatever your opinion of the movie, it has some of the best 3D cinematography I've seen on my LG UHDTV. The horizontal and vertical alignment of the stereoscopic images is perfect so there is no ghosting. The picture is bright and colorful; the scenery is beautiful. It has become a permanent addition to my 3D collection.
This is a different take on Dumas' classic Three Musketeers and skews into to far fetched, but is wonderful fun especially if you like Steampunk. It has an excellent cast and I sincerely hope they actually make a sequel, though that may never happen because it got panned at the box office. This one is a guilty pleasure of mine.
