A hot-headed young D'Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down with their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.
I haven't been on the cinema for about four months, which is a long time for me. So when a friend of mine asked me out to warch this particular one, I couldn't refuse.
Reasons to watch the movie: Taking it from the beggining, I'll admit it pulled me in from the start. You could say it will be spectacular. I liked the places, outdoors and indoors (but that's my interior designing instinct talking) and they did a great job with the effects. The fighting scenes were good, but I'm not an expert to judge badly and the acting was nice too. The costumes were amazing, but I don't know how much they were following the fashion of that period. I'll admit that I didn't know all the actors playing the Musketeers, but for this particular modern aspect of the novel all the actors were great. Plus, there are some technological achievements that I'm kinda sure weren't created that period, but they gave the movie a fresh aspect.
Reasons to not watch the movie: Well, here I only have one reason. If you are fun of the classic novel and you believe that taking something old and transform it a bit to create something new and modern, is bad, then you'll have a problem. I haven't read the book, but I've seen other, older and more classic version of it and I'm sure I know couple of the differences. For instance, the language is not that classic and sometimes you could hear modern phrases in the movie, but I can't be sure about the costumes or the places or any other detail that might be changed for that purpose. Also, you may find the whole style a little weird, but that's not a big problem. As I said, they were trying to create a new and fresh aspect of the book.
Bottom line, I recommend you the movie for the reasons above. I'm not sure that you'll like it or love as I did, but it was fun to watch and worth every penny I gave for the ticket. I didn't see it in 3D, but I loved it and I had a great night with my friends.
