The Musketeer


Another remake/spinoff of the classic Dumas tale of the Three Musketeers, this time more focussed on the fourth one who joined them. Set in the time of upheaval in France, our hero is on a life-quest to exact justice on the baddie, a bigshot, who killed his parents when he was just a little boy. Along the way he has romance and lots of action adventures while also saving France from political ruin.

Ian Douglas: This film seems to be aimed at a younger audience, specifically pre-teen boys. The action concentrates more on Jackie Chan style escapades rather than the traditional swordplay common to movies set in this era. There is some witty dialogue and one-liners to entertain the adults in the audience.
