A great adaptation of the classic story. The cast does an excellent job and Tim Curry is masterful as the evil Cardinal Richelieu. This one has it all, humor, action, intrigue, and romance. You can't go wrong.
Kind a nostalgic since I remember seeing a little bit of this movie. The musketeers played by Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Oliver Platt were pretty cool.
This was an okay movie. One I faintly remembered. Still I thought the movie was okay not great or anything but still okay.
This film, often pegged as being untraditional to Dumas' masterpiece, is a comedy about revolution, the way of the sword, and even the art of kissing. Created by Disney, a company well know for attempting to make, and often times breaking, the standard for pure, child-oriented movies, this tale of three outlawed swordsmen will attract any fan of action. While stylized to fit Disney's idea of a suitable film, as seen with animated titles such as Hercules and Pocohantas, it does go for the gold without a doubt. With plot, lovable and updated characters, and dashing sword fights, Three Musketeers is a great movie for a family who doesn't mind exposing youngsters to PG rated material. The only true offense here is Rebecca De Mornay's lewd attire, but with Disney, you really can't go wrong. All for one, and one for all.
Let's see: we take a classic story, by a great author, which has been filmed several times before. Then, apparently deciding we know better than the story's creator, we through out the entire classic and proceed to write our own story. This movie has nothing to do with Alexandre Dumas' tale except for the title and the character's names. Almost all previous versions attempted to stick with the orignal tale, but this one could care less. The real Richelieu (and he was a real man) guided France through the rule of a very weak king. While I admire Tim Curry, his Cardinal is a comedy villain, not the sinister presence Dumas wrote. This movie was a travesty, having nothing to do with the book. Better to see the 1925 Douglas Fairbanks version, or even the Gene Kelly movie with Vincent Price as Richelieu. Best of all is still the 1974-75 Three-and-Four Musketeers by Richard Lester-faithful to both the period and the book they are based on.
Today I finished watching this movie in my French class. I loved it! I'm going to go out and but it this week!
How was this the Three Musketeers I ask you? It doesnt even deserve one star. I had finished the book and was overjoyed to learn there was a movie. I had heard that it was not just like the book(what ever is?) but was unduaghted. As I sat down to watch it one night I had missed a fair amount and after about 5 minutes was happy about that but watched futher to see if it got beter perhappes but it didnt. As far as I saw Milady was hardly even existant, how can you have THe Three Musketeers without Milady! Porthos was far to short, the Cardianal portrade as pure evil, and lets not even get started with the duke of Buckingham! The 'humor' was set for young childern and nothing like Dumas's cleverness. If you want The Three Musketeers read the book dont watch this movie.
This was absolutely one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. If you like comedy and fantasy, then you will love this film. As far as comparing it to other works of the Musketeers, all I can say is why compare? That is like comparing apples and oranges. I think it is excellent. I have almost worn my old VHS out and it is time to buy the DVD.
The movie was superb! I saw the movie before I read the book and yes, they are nothing alike but that does not change the fact that it is a great and funny movie. I know that the differances between the book and movie have upset many people but if you don't think about the book (which is amazing also, I highly recommend it)than you will see how increadible it is, but you really have to FORGET about the book and what it is like in order to appriciate the movie.
I beg to differ with all those saying that this isn't a good movie. Grantide, I haven't read the book, but for a movie--a DISNEY movie--it's really very good. D'Artangan is portrayed very well by a young Chris O'Donnell, but honestly, Charlie Sheen steals the performance. The movie starts out in the evil Cardinal's secret, underground (of course) prison. Then we get to go and see D'Artangan dueling against a rather . . . odd looking fellow. Heading to Paris to become a musketeer, D'Artangan finds that his timing is a little off, the musketeers having been disbanded a short time before hand. Ending up having three duels with the Three Musketeers, D'Artangan soon finds himself aiding Aramis (Charlie Sheen), Athos (Kiefer Sutherland), and Porthos (Oliver Platt--who's the main comedy of this movie) in thier plot to twart the Cardinal's evil scheme of taking over the throne of France from the young king. Really a very good movie. I highly recommend it.
One of the many things that makes this movie terrible is the casting. Athos, for example, is much older than the other musketeers, not the same age as Aramis. Porthos, for another, is supposed to be a giant, hulking figure of a man, not a short fat guy. Cardinal Richelieu is supposed to be an imposing, stately figure, not some campy, smarmy goofball. It seems as though the goal of the producers was to try to figure out how to fit as many of the big attractions of the time into one movie (which, of course, does not explain why Tim Curry is in it). And that's just a bunch of the wrong actors playing key roles. I don't want to waste much more space going into the myriad of other things that made this movie awful.
I first want to say that everyone who is bashing this movie misses the fact that it is DISNEY movie. It is made the way it is so children can view it. I think this is a great movie. I never read the book, and I don't have to. This movie is full of action, humour, and a great cast. I recommend this movie for all families. I am 19 and I still watch it. Goo Disney!!
In answer to some reviews I have read the book and seen other versions of the 3 Musketeers. The book was boring! While I have seen some versions that were ok this is the only version I would watch again. It is clever and funny, maybe not true to the book but in my opionion that is a GOOD thing. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for some light hearted fun :& quot
With a completely delightful cast, non stop action, humor, love, and a fantastic soundtrack this VHS tape sits happily on my top shelf. And I totally like D'Artagnan's hair and the brothers will avenge me guy is hilarious!
I absolutley LOVE this movie. I had to search a bit for it and finally found it here at B&N. The acting in this is so awesome. Tim Curry is great. Funny in moments, well as funny as he can be in his part of the Cardinal. Charlie Sheen and Oliver Platt are absolutely hilarious though! Their characters are perfect and even though they are funny they still have a very touching and emotional moment. Keifer Sutherland is great, as is Chris O'Donnell. Rebecca DeMornay as the Countess DeWinter is fantastic. Although they are less known than the earlier actors named, Michael Wincott as Rochefort and Hugh O'Conner as Kind Louise definitely hold their own in this famous cast movie. You also get to see an early Gabreille Unwar (Burn Notice) and she is just as beautiful and spunky back then. All around just an amazing movie with awesome acting. Definitely a must watch for everyone. There's plenty of action and a little bit of a love story thrown in too. I could really just watch this movie over and over and over, and have before. Hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!!!
This is one of Disney's best ever. Great cast, wonderful script with a nice plot. And of course the happy ending. This one will definitely stand the test of time. Highly recommend it for family night.
