Consensus: It plays admirably fast and loose with Alexandre Dumas' classic tale, but in every other respect, The Three Musketeers offers nothing to recommend -- or to set it apart from the many other film adaptations.

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."

In the worst possible case, this could go on and on, but please, let's hope it doesn't.

Critic's Notebook

Paul W. S. Anderson's take on the Dumas classic is almost like the cinematic equivalent of CliffsNotes.

Call it the Robert Downey Jr. Meets Sherlock Holmes Effect. A classic popular adventure gets overblown, juiced-up, and generally CGI-ified.

Every time you think it can't get any stupider, it gets right up in your face, calls you "bro," and gets stupider.

A befouling of Dumas.

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.

Alonso Duralde

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.

The film may have its fun moments but this adaptation does nothing more than make these Three Musketeers look like a bunch of Stooges.

A terrible excuse for a film. Jumped up on CGI and bad acting, I wonder how this movie ever got made.

I suppose I should have known better seeing director Paul W.S. Anderson's name attached to the loose adaptation of The Three Musketeers. From the previews,… More

Old tales updated, more times than not don't really work out well. "The Three Musketeers" is one of those movies. Weak acting, and a generic… More
