THE THREE MUSKETEERS (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Three Musketeers—
the best of the better films of 2011—definitely earns a sequel. The film is well acted and well portrayed. The special effects are good. It’s not the usual Three Musketeers’ movie.

The three musketeers steal Leonardo Da Vinci’s air ship blueprints, but are betrayed by Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich). She gives the plans to the Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom). The three musketeers return to Paris, France and are ordered to disband by Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). They live a life of poverty. But, D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman), a young, hot-headed wannabe musketeer, challenges each of them to a sword fight. The musketeers discover that the young challenger is son of an old musketeer. They befriend D’Artagnon and the adventure begins.
