The hot-headed young D'Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.
After failing in a scheme to steal Leonardo Da Vinci's airship blueprints, the Musketeers are disbanded by Cardinal Richelieu leaving Athos, Porthos and Aramis on the streets of Paris. In the meantime, the young, reckless and ambitious D'Artagnan has set off from Gascony with dreams of becoming a musketeer himself, not realizing that they have been disbanded. In no time, D'Artagnan manages to offend Athos, Porthos and Aramis on different occasions and challenges them all to duels. However before the duels can take place they are attacked by guards, trying to arrest them for illegal dueling. The ex-musketeers and D'Artagnan fight off the soldiers, leading to the four men becoming a band with the motto of "All for one, and one for all". Count Richelieu is not only determined to be rid of the musketeers, but also schemes with Athos' former lover Milady to undermine the reign of King Louis and his wife. The musketeers and D'Artagnan are determined to save the royal family and France ... Written by
At the beginning of the movie, the map of Europe shows several states and kingdoms of that era. However, in Germany, a fictional kingdom west of Bavaria called "Wurzburg" is shown (slightly misspelled, as the original spelling is "Würzburg"), the name of a Franconian city where major parts of the movie were shot.

Look, D'Artagnan. You may have a new set of clothes and the King's favor, but you still act like a clumsy country boy. Now excuse me.

'The Three Musketeers'was a film that was clearly a waste of my valuable time. The main reason I gave it a 5 was because not much happened but also I didn't fall asleep or leave the room.It wasn't the worst time waster I've seen so any ratings less than 4 out of 10 wouldn't be correct in my opinion but neither would any ratings over 6 out of 10.
The majority of the film was just talking full stop. The best scene was near the beginning- it was a fight scene between many people. Rather unusually,this film,being the three musketeers,had hardly any action scenes and the storyline was hard to get,extremely boring and SO plain.
Basically, I would recommend not to watch this film or even rent it because you may as well get an original 'The Three Musketeers' film.It is better than 'The last airbender',though, which is another adventure film.
