The hot-headed young D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins forces with three rogue Musketeers (Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson) in this reboot of Alexandre Dumas' story. They must stop the evil Richlieu (Christoph Waltz) and face off with Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and the treacherous Milady (Milla Jovovich). The action adventure is given a state of the art update in 3-D. -- (C) Summit

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even the most liberal viewer is likely to echo Milady's thoughts of D'Artagnan: "You are very amiable, no doubt, but you would be charming if you would only depart.""
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"In the worst possible case, this could go on and on, but please, let's hope it doesn't."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A befouling of Dumas."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"It's fun for a Saturday afternoon viewing, but it will ultimately go down in the annals of movie history as yet another forgettable adaptation."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"You might mistake the sound of swashbuckling for what it really is: Alexandre Dumas spinning in his grave. Much closer to 'Pirates of the Caribbean' lite than it is to 'The Three Musketeers,' this makes a mess of the classic Dumas tale."
‑ Linda Cook, KWQC-TV (Iowa)
"Call it the Robert Downey Jr. Meets Sherlock Holmes Effect. A classic popular adventure gets overblown, juiced-up, and generally CGI-ified."
‑ Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
"Every time you think it can't get any stupider, it gets right up in your face, calls you "bro," and gets stupider."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"The film may have its fun moments but this adaptation does nothing more than make these Three Musketeers look like a bunch of Stooges."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
"Never has failure looked this good!"
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Ugh. Nothing makes sense, it's not funny and the 3D is worthless."
‑ Jeff Bayer, The Scorecard Review
"This version of the Musketeers story can't decide if it wants to be an old-fashioned tale of swashbuckling adventure and palace intrigue or a cheeky, effects-heavy rethink of some iconic characters a la the Guy Ritchie-directed Sherlock Holmes."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Jovovich tries hard to be terribly, terribly wicked, but her performance finds a hitherto unknown middle ground between Divine in Pink Flamingos and Halle Berry in Catwoman that's just embarrassing."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"While you're busy looking at the special effects, you'll begin to notice that there's not really anything in the way of substance like a well-thought-out plot and characters that you care about."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"If you want over-the-top entertainment that doesn't respect the laws of physics, you can't do much better than this."
‑ Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, Ebert Presents At The Movies
"Anderson has crafted a beautiful and rambunctious film that is in many ways a lot more fun than the last few Disney "Pirates of the Caribbean" films."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
