    3D swashbuckler wields a disappointingly blunt sword. show more

    It's not the addition of airships and male dangly earrings that make Paul W.S. Anderson's take on Alexandre Dumas' classic, much-adapted adventure such a drag, it's everything else - the incoherence, the anvil-heavy dialogue, the lack of anything beyond the broadest of characterizations. show more

    A moment's patience is soon rewarded by Anderson's vast store of rich, intoxicating imagery. show more

    All the borderline pantomime acting and wigged buffoonery is deliberate and silly, but The Three Musketeers remains charmless, a romp brought down by its lead-footed script. show more

    This is a once-in-a-lifetime fiasco, an epic fail like none we have seen this year, a bad idea by a very bad director and a career-crippling credit for all concerned. You don't want to miss it. show more

    Stupid, with three o's. But also fun, never boring, and never insulting (to anyone other than Dumas) - unlike certain of the summer's A-pics… show more

    Trash-action director Paul W.S. Anderson's (Alien vs. Predator) finds no cultural purpose for this rather literal adaptation of the Musketeers, but it's not so horrible it deserved to be protected from the cold eye of film critics. show more

    Muskets and swords are a bit old-fashioned for the director of "Resident Evil" - Paul W.S. Anderson has added flying battleships and elaborate diamond heists. (With material as shopworn as this, an anachronizing approach seems as valid as any.) show more

    Still, once you accept Paul W.S. Anderson's entirely unnecessary adaptation on its own terms (nonsensical, underachieving), it has its limited charms, which include a snigger-inducing alphabet soup of accents, a standout rooftop swordfight, and British comedian James Corden as the Musketeers' put-upon manservant. show more

    What a disappointment! I was so looking forward to this and it failed on every level. The only character I enjoyed was James Corden\'s Planchet (the Muskateers servant). The rest was just ridiculous.

    Extremely silly and overloaded with gimmicks.

    One of the worst films of 2011 no question. I do not recall seeing Nicolas Cage even once throughout the entirety of the film. Save your money and go to a local RedBox and pick up Drive Angry instead. It is a far superior film.

    Fantastic Movie. It was fun it was exciting it was adventurous. This fast paced film was not only visually captivating, but the story line was interesting and complete while leaving it open for a sequal that could be a potential nightmare. The Three Musketeers were tough, sexy, and worked beautifully as a unit. The Young D\'Aranagnan was adoreble and incredible. Of course Mila Jovovich was fantastic. Orlando Bloom was A+. My favorite, however, was young Freddie Fox, the cutie that played King Louis. I so look forward to seeing him in other films. I would definately recommend this film to anyone, parent and child, the movie is clean and safe for underage viewers.

    Great set and costumes. Way over the top script that\'s almost to dumb for words but if you just go with it it becomes really funny. The king was a world class fop and a riot.

    The movie was o.k. Personally I don\'t think the guys did as good of a job as the women. Orlando Bloom and whoever played the french king came across as flops. the dude with the patch on his eye and Milady were the hit in this movie.

    Well I saw the movie last night! Actually very good action/adventure type movie - no big name actors but I thought ALL the Musketeers were Great! They were funny and smart and lots of action ! Teh money was spent on the effects and the Costumes!! and Milla J. was actually the WEAK link in the group. She was very out of place! No accent - too modern sounding and she just wasn\'t good in that part! The 3/4ths of the movie was - VERY ENTERTAINING and fun to watch! The last 1/4 got kind of rediculous! The Airship that stayed in the air while being bombed and the actors just standing there?? was the only bad thing I can say - BUT I would see it again - I liked the chemistry of the male actors and the action it was well worth the price of a ticket!! which is more than i can say for some fo the movies in theaters these days
