The Three Muskateers (2011)

The legendary story from Alexandre Dumas is brought to the big screen in glorious 3D by Paul W S Anderson. You have a fine cast of villains played by Christoph Waltz as Cardinal Richelieu, Milla Jovovich as M'lady and Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham with your heroes being played by Matthew Macfadyen as Athos, Luke Evans as Aramis and Ray Stevenson as Porthos with Logan Lerman as D'Artagnan and Gabriella Wilde as the young couple in love for the stroty.

This is a story that has been told many times before and to be honest my favourite and best telling was the Muskahounds, but back to this telling of the story. Firstly it does not need to be seen in 3D and there is an element of steamunk to this telling and it fits well with the way they are trying to tell the story. While this is not the best film you will ever see ti is fun and entertaining and actually worth seeing.

So a recommend if you are interested in seeing a retelling of this classic tale and an enjoyable couple of hours. A three star recommend from me, let me know if you saw it in 2D and thought anything was missing as I did not think that the 3D added that much.
