Thank for my sis’s winning of free preview of THE 3 Musketeers in 3D at Shaw Theatre at Bugis on 24 October 2011. This movie is an adaptation from the book ‘Les Trois Mousquetaires” (The 3 Musketeers in french). The motto of the 3 Musketeers is “all for one, one for all” (“tous pour un, un pour tous”)
The Three Musketeers Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson) and Aramis (Luke Evans) as well as D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) joins in an adventure to fight against the villains of this movie – Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich), Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom) and Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz).
The poor d’Artagnan travels to Paris to join the Musketeers. He suffers misadventure and is challenged to a duel by each of three musketeers (Athos, Aramis and Porthos). Attacked by the Cardinal’s guards, the four unite and escape.
Then Milady and Cardinal plotted to steal Queen’s Anne’s jewellery and the 3 Musketeers and d’Artagnan had to settle for their adventures to retrieve the Jewellery to save Queen’s Anne.
Of course, this is my 1st time watching Orlando Bloom acting as a villain in this movie too. Towards the end of the movie, there’s a scene whereby it indicates that there will be part II of this 3 Musketeers movie too. So stay tune of the part II of this movie.
This English movie is based in France but the problem is the French King and some of the French people in this movie had the presence of English accent and does not sounded like French accent. If not, it will be more real. The clothes are great and reflects the fashion of the reign and period as well as the 3D effects.
I will give this movie 3.25 stars for the great cast and the chemistry between D’Artagnan and the 3 musketeers, 3D effects and comical scenes which made people laugh at.
Here’s the trailer of the movie. Enjoy. It is out in the cinemas in Singapore from 26 October 2011 onwards if you are keen to watch.
