THE MUSKETEER (2001 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 0.7|5.0 Stars

I could hardly finish The Musketeer. Camera men—inexperienced. Choreographer—needs to understand some basics about making movies. Actors—unprofessional. From beginning to end, the movie is a failure. Director Peter Hyams attempts a final fight scene that is laughable.

Storyline

D’Artagnan (Justin Chambers) witnesses the murder of his father and waits until he is an adult to take revenge.

Additional Thanks

Thanks to Director Peter Hyams for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Rudy Cohen, Mark Damon, Frank Hübner, Romain Schroeder, and Steven Paul for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: The Queen (Catherine Deneuve), Francesca Bonacieux (Mena Suvari), Cardinal Richelieu (Stephen Rea), Febre the Man in Black (Tim Roth), Bonacieux (Bill Treacher), King Louis XIII (Daniel Mesguich), Rochefort, and Richelieu Henchman (David Schofield).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. The movie comes off as a first effort in every department—almost as if it is a school project rather than a theater release film.
