The Three Musketeers (2011)


THE STORY

The Three Musketeers, Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), and Aramis (Luke Evans) earned their reputation as the most brave and cunning in France... That was until they were betrayed by Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich) while on a mission to retrieve a plan of a powerful weapon... They lost their will to fight and never went back into action again... D'artagnan (Logan Lerman) who desired to become a musketeer reminded them of the feeling of glory and thus all four of them combine their wits and powers to protect the king and queen from harm and deceit...


PLUS POINTS


It Looks Good

Just by watching this movie, I can guess that a lot of effort had been put into making this movie look really really good... The costumes, the place settings and the visual effects are stunning... The actors and actress are handsome and pretty except the King Louis XIII (Freddie Fox)

This movie reminded me of the Resident Evil movie series not just because Milla Jovovich is in it, but also because of the special visual effects during some of the action scenes... 


Humor

Planchet (James Corden) is the most entertaining character in this movie... Though a small character, he won a few laughs from the audience with his silly acts and the way he got picked on by the musketeers... Other characters also contributed jokes especially the musketeers and D'artagnan... 




MINUS POINTS


Nothing New and Interesting

This movie is action packed but I wasn't quite impressed by the choreography... There are many gun and sword fights but I see nothing new and impressive... I don't know, maybe I'm too hard to pleased but I tell u this, I think this movie is quite boring... 

Sure, the visual effects and CGI are stunning, but they don't compensate the lack of excitement and suspense... In my humble opinion, the producers seemed to be trying too hard to impress by bombarding the audience with superb effects that it backfired... They depended too much on the effects that they forgot to focus on the heart of story... I left the cinema feeling empty... 


Milla Jovovich

I love Milla in the Resident Evil series but in this one, she kinda sucked... I mean, the role of seductive and manipulative woman is not meant for her... She failed to arouse me with her sexy moves and all... Her facial expression... erkhh... fail...


THE VERDICT

The Three Musketeers looks really awesome but there's no substance... I think that with better script and plot, this movie would improve a lot... 


2.5 out of 5 stars...
