The Three Musketeers - movie review

Oh, this is a film some will get and some will not get.

I thought it was fun. But you'll never know who stole the movie though. It was not a musketeer. In fact it was Freddie Fox who played King Louie.

Don't get me wrong, this movie has plenty of swashbuckling scenes. Logan Lerman as D'Artagnan has a dazzling smile that holds us through most of the film. Although, I think it would have been even better if he'd had a tad of an English accent. Even better... if the French had a French accent, but that never happens in period pieces about France. Unfortunately.

But the film is a lot of fun. And if you want, well, you'll have fun at this movie. There is Milla Jovovich as the double agent spy. You can't forget a very fashionable Orlando Bloom as the duke of Buckingham. And their are the fun quips between Bloom and Freddie who I might add is quite a fox in this film.

The muskeeters are a bit depressed at the start of this film. Matthew Macfadyen is Athos and Luke Evans is Armis. Both so charming in their roles. But some still can't enjoy a Muskeeter film without Tim Curry. Yet, some of us very well can.

Freddie & Juno

This movie has such wonderful cinematography. Amazing warships in the air. So beautiful. And Juno Temple as the queen just shows Juno can play just about anything. Hopefully, we'll see more of Gabriella Wilde, as D'Artagnan's love interest, in more movies to come.

It was such a great cast. I'm sure I can't say enough about them. Denmark's Mads Mikkelsen played a great villian in this film, as well. And I loved  Dexter Fletcher's small part too as D'Artagan's father.

STORYLINE: 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.

We like our Logan with short hair and non-swashbuckling scenes best.
