Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In the worst possible case, this could go on and on, but please, let's hope it doesn't.
Rotten: Seriously: What the hell?
Rotten: Call it the Robert Downey Jr. Meets Sherlock Holmes Effect. A classic popular adventure gets overblown, juiced-up, and generally CGI-ified.
Rotten: Even the most liberal viewer is likely to echo Milady's thoughts of D'Artagnan: "You are very amiable, no doubt, but you would be charming if you would only depart."
All in Good Fun
Never mind the reviews: unless you're expecting a classic, historical epic, this movie is excellent! It's a steampunk interpretation of The Three Musketeers, and follows the plot of most adaptations. The actors are having fun and the viewers feel it. Logan Lerman is delightfully cocky as D'Artagnan, King Louis XIII provides comic relief and you wouldn't recognize Orlando Bloom as the evil, metrosexual Duke of Buckingham. I really recommend this movie for a fun evening.
Didnt care what the critics said, it's was definitely not what I expected from the commercials which appeared to be a serious movie. It was great fun!
Cheese? Yes. Over the top? Sure. Fun? You bet.
I think some of the people who wrote reviews don't know how to enjoy a movie with some good humor and very well done action scenes.
I would actually say this is Paul Anderson's best movie yet.
