Every legend has a new beginning.
The Three Musketeers (2011) is an adventure movie based on the characters of the Three Musketeers - Athos, Porthos, and Aramis.
Synopsis: D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) sets out to become a musketeer and arrives in Paris to find the famed trio Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Aramis (Luke Evans) and Porthos (Ray Stevenson) disbanded and de-commissioned by Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). After a bravado skirmish with the Cardinal's guards, the young but inexperienced King Louis XIII (Freddie Fox) reinstates Athos, Aramis and Porthos to their former rank and even has D'Artagnan join them for good measure.
The awesome foursome then discovers the Cardinal's deadly plot to overthrow the King. By employing Athos's former lover the beautiful but deadly assassin Milady De Winter (Milla Jovovich), the Cardinal fabricates infidelity between Queen Anne (Juno Temple) and England's Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom). By doing so, the devious cardinal plots to unleash war on the European Continent, and in the process plans to dispose the King and Queen of France, while acquiring the throne of France for himself. It is now up to the (four) musketeers to prevent France and England from plunging into war by stopping Milady from executing the Cardinal's evil plan. [source]
Milla Jovovich as Milady and Christoph Waltz as the evil Cardinal save the movie! The rest of the cast's performance doesn't really to seal the movie's entertainment value. The movie's soundtrack reminds me of Sherlock Holmes 2. The sword fights and canon ball battle scenes are pretty good though.
This is another popcorn entertainment kind of movie. Watch it for fun then!
