The Musketeer

Jays Rating:

If you’ve always enjoyed the adventures of The Three Musketeers, you’ll like the action in the movie, The Musketeer. It’s the mid 1700’s, and the Musketeers have been disbanded. The Cardinal of the Catholic Church in France is plotting against the King, so the people will give all of their money to the church. In the meantime, D’artagnan (Justin Chambers), who is the son of one of the original Musketeers, shows up in the city. He hears about the Cardinal’s sinister plot and begins searching for the disbanded Musketeers. He manages to locate two of them but they are reluctant to join him. Of course, after a sword fight or two they are persuaded and they ride off to find the rest of their comrades. (Personally, I thought they acted more like Mouseketeers than Musketeers.) As the Musketeers are finally reunited, D’artagnan helps the Queen (CatherineDeneuve) escape to safety just in case the King is overthrown. Although this movie is full of action, the pl ot is simple, the dialogue is ridiculous, and I’ve seen better acting by a guide dog and more personality from my white cane. It was some-what entertaining, but I can’t give it anything higher than a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
