80For his robust and handsome The Musketeer, Hyams enlisted veteran Hong Kong stunt coordinator Xin-Xin Xiong to stage a clutch of spectacular action sequences that are amusing in the imaginative intricacy of their bravura.
60Quite handsomely produced, and there's a definite swashbuckling verve to it. Most of the characters have been contemporized, but the actors are engaging.
38The images are pretty, and Gene Quintano's screenplay gets everybody from point A to point B, though with no discernible knack for wit or subtlety.
38A grotesque slumgullion of kung fu, studio schlock and pseudo-Dumas swashbuckling that leaves you longing for Doug Fairbanks --or even Don Ameche and The Ritz Brothers.
ShaneS.10I loved this movie. If you no anything about France during the 17th century you would love this movie.
4Incredible action scenes aside, there is really nothing to like about this movie. Even with Stephen Rea and Tim Roth as the villains, this film is still bad. But damn it, these action scenes are SO GOOD! And that is the only reason why anyone in their right mind should watch it.
Honestly, I'm not big on action films unless the action is interesting and creative. The Musketeer has some of the most creative and well choreographed fight scenes I have seen in a long time. If they put half as much effort into telling a good story, this might have been a good film.
This film would normally get a 1 but the great action brings it up to a 4.… Expand
