The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers is a 2011 film loosely based on the Alexander Dumas novel. This was another one of those movies that's fun to watch but doesn't beg for a repeat viewing.


Slant Magazine gives it 3 out of 4 stars and closes with this:
After the bumpy first scenes with d'Artagnan, however, if you consider yourself an open-minded viewer, you'll find yourself slowly overcome with the opium dream of Bourbon-era France, rendered in immersive depth, and Anderson's over-caffeinated absurdities, to the point where you're open to any crackpot idea, just so long as it dazzles. And it dazzles.
Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 26% rating. Metacritic gives it 35 out of 100.
