Paul W.S. Anderson
In 1947, a smart-mouthed Brit working in L.A. as a private eye (or peeper) is on a case to find the long lost daughter of a shady client pursued by two dangerous goons. The case leads him to a rich oddball Beverly Hills family.
In 17th century Paris, a dashing swordsman named D'Artagnan finds himself at odds with the powerful forces taking over France. He sets out to avenge the murder of his parents and finds his country cleaved by chaos and civil unrest. His heart softens only for Francesca, a fiery peasant girl who claims D'Artagnan's heart on sight.Written by

The first and collaboration between Director Peter Hyams and Editor Terry Rawlings. Steven Kemper was Hyams usual film editor but after the last few films that Hyams had directed caused editorial problems lighting wise, Kemper decided not to work with him again. See more »
Nearly all of the characters have straight and perfect teeth. This would not be possible given that most dentistry of that era consisted of pulling teeth. Additionally, there are several scenes where it is clear that the actors have fillings which wouldn't been available until several centuries later. See more »
I thought that the movie was an original version of the classic novel. It incorporated great fighting scenes that were out of this world. They looked as if they were some kind of asian/western/ fencing techniques all blended in with awesome stunt men. Also the story had a nice pace, the only problems were that the characters were underdeveloped. Mena Suvari had a great part and also great chemistry with Dartagnon (Justin Chambers) and I would have like to see more of the romance, but it was short and vauge. I would recommend this for a movie to watch at home or maybe on PPV, I don't know about spending more than that on it.
