This is probably the worst film I've seen in 5 years. Yes.
This a violation against Alexandre Dumas himself and thank God he's not here to see it.
This is not meant to be an effects film, this is a timeless story that requires only that - the story, for it to work. However, the director here had not gotten the point at all and made it a action film for teenagers. Although this wonderful story shouldn't have anything to so with age (I became a fan of The Three Musketeers as a 6 year old), the director has made it so.
NOTHING from the original storyline, which is the most brilliant of all classics, were kept. Nothing. This is not The Three Musketeers.
See Richard Lesters The Three Musketeers. THAT'S the film.
