The Three Musketeers

Well this is most certainly a modern take on an old story.
I’m not sure whether the actors are hamming it up to make it serious or playing it for the laughs.
The original storyline is followed where a young hot head, D’Artagnan is sent off to France to become a Musketeer and becomes embroiled in a plot to discredit the queen and start a war with England.

But then the filmmakers decided to up the antsy by adding flying ships and even pinch a scene straight out of Star Trek : Wrath Of Khan which is set just slightly a few years in the future.

Although the film is quite nonsensical it is however still enjoyable in a fun kind of way as long as you try not to take the film too seriously.

Madds Mickelson & Orlando Bloom play the Panto style bad guys brilliantly without the slightest bit of a French accent in the whole film and Logam Lerman is also fantastic as the swaggering hot headed D’Artagnan.

The ending leaves it wide open for a second instalment – Can’t wait to see where they take it from here and which scene they will use from another Star Trek Movie.
