Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich - that says it all, really. Having seen the trailer and the latest Resident Evil, I was expecting eye-popping, mindless 3D action with zero regard for the source material, which turned out to be spot on. I also went in with the vague hope that the filler parts around the 3D action would be fun, with the sort of great character interactions people have come to expect from classic coming-of-age action adventures. Unfortunately, this was not to be. There's zero character development - D'Artagnan's character goes from cocky beginning to cocky end, being apparently awesome with nothing to learn, right from the get go. Where was the training montage? Matthew Macfayden tries his best but is ultimately let down by the story and script. Even Christoph Waltz struggled with his character. However, there's no doubt as to who deserves the worst performance award - Orlando Bloom. Please, do not ever try to portray a villain again! Every time his character appeared, you could almost feel the audience cringe. Perhaps the only redeeming factors of this movie were that, yes, the 3D looked great, and I wasn't too bored throughout. However, if you want to watch the Three Musketeers, you might be better off sticking to the 1993 version.
