The Three Musketeers
I recently reviewed Paul WS Anderson’s The Three Musketeers for Lost in the Multiplex:
Alexandre Dumas’s literary classic has experienced little joy at the multiplex in recent outings. There was the incredibly bland Disney version back in 1993 starring Kiefer Sutherland and Charlie Sheen (so bland Bryan Adams and Sting were on the soundtrack…. none more bland.) Then of course there was the uninspiring Man in the Iron Mask in 1998 starring Jeremy Irons and Gerard Depardieu. Neither really won over the audiences and both struggled to capture the correct blend of joyous romance and swashbuckling daredevilry that makes the novel so popular. So when it was announced that Paul WS Anderson, he of Resident Evil and Aliens Vs Predators fame, would be helming a new take on the tale there were many who questioned whether he would really be able to breathe new life into the story. Did he manage to prove them all wrong? The answer is a resounding…..sort of.
