Born to be Heroes. Trained to be Warriors. Destined to fight evil…
The Three Musketeers is a film that we really wanted to see but missed in the theater last year. So, we jumped at the opportunity to review it on DVD. I have to admit that I was most looking forward to seeing the dreamy Orlando Bloom on screen again. The Three Musketeers did not disappoint. The entire family really enjoyed the outrageous, action packed adventure of this film!
This version of The Three Musketeers is a modern and rather humorous retelling of Alexander Dumas’ timeless swashbuckling classic. The star studded cast includes Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & the Olympians), Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Caribbean films), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil films) and Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz (Best Supporting Actor, Inglourious Basterds).
The three are joined for this adventure by aspiring warrior D’Artagnan, the son of a Muskateer. He is a gifted warrior, but a bit cocky for his own good. D’Artagnan has some of the best sword fighting scenes in the movie and even finds time for a new love interest.
It was fun to see Milla Jovovich in action as the devious double agent Milady. The combination of powerful special effects, action, humor and outrageous antics of The Three Musketeers truly makes for a fun movie experience! I definitely recommend this one for family movie night!
The Three Musketeers, released by Summit Entertainment, is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 3D Blu-ray on March 13th!
