The Three Musketeers

Swashbuckling adventure adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel starring Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Matthew Macfadyen (Robin Hood), Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds).

Follows hot-headed young D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman, Percy Jackson) who is taken under the wing of France's legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers - Porthos (Ray Stevenson, Punisher: War Zone), Athos (Macfayden) and Aramis (Luke Evans, Clash of the Titans). The four are bought together to defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.

Dumas' 1844 novel of chivalry and camaraderie has long inspired filmmakers (there have been over 20 screen adaptations). This version from director Paul W.S. Anderson, shot in Germany, has a steampunk influence with airships, machine guns and flame throwers mixed with 18th century sword-play.

A very 2011 take on Alexandre Dumas' classic that feels weirdly dated already. Although adequately entertaining thanks to lavish production values and game supporting perfs, this anodyne adaptation lacks a killer hook that would help it cross over to a demographic beyond action buffs and fanboys.

All for one maybe, but one for all? Not quite. Although starry, lavish and superficially spectacular, this version of the perennial old favourite isn’t likely to endure.

3D swashbuckler wields a disappointingly blunt sword.

Stupid, with three o's. But also fun, never boring, and never insulting (to anyone other than Dumas) - unlike certain of the summer's A-pics…
