'The Three Musketeers'
(Orlando Bloom, Logan Lerman, Ray Stevenson, et al / DVD / PG-13 / 2012 / Summit Entertainment)

Overview: Logan Lerman and Orlando Bloom star in a swashbuckling update to Alexandre Dumas classic novel, The Three Musketeers.

DVD Verdict: In truth, the plot started out well enough, but then the CGI effects kicked in and all hell broke loose! Add to that some horrible writing shortcuts and flying boats and suddenly what could have been a great entry into this film series just became lame and dumb!

I mean, in all honesty, I know one has to always suspend their belief when watching movies such as these (and ALL those found on the Syfy channel), but suspending it to a point of total stupidity, well, that's just plain nuts!

So, I hear you ask, is it completely true to Dumas' novel - no. Is this a great period piece - no. Is it an amazing piece of drama as of a whole - no. Hmmmmm, so what the frick has it got that title to it for?

Great last question as only the creators will know how they got away woth stealing that name for this horrid adapation! That said, and being fair on all sides, it has bouts of sheer entertainment strewn from begining to end, but should just have been called something different - if not for the purists alone.

Stunts and action sequences galore, not forgetting those aforementioned flying boats, 'The Three Musketeers' is France at its finest: swarmy etiquette, pomp and circumstance, frilly wardrobes and prissy attitudes! And that's just the real life actors! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1:85.1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
