The Three Musketeers : Movie Review

Its been really long time since I went to a movie theater. Nothing after Harry Potter and DH. As there were no noticeable movies in last few months, when I decided not to expect much from The Three Musketeers. And I wasThe Three Musketeers surprised. First reaction when after coming  out of theater was “Well, that was cool”.

The Three Musketeers (IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1509767/)

Director: Paul W.S. Anderson

Starring: Logan LermanMatthew MacfadyenRay Stevenson,Luke EvansMilla Jovovich and Orlando Bloom.

(Briefest) Summary: (No Spoilers)

The three musketeers, after having their time of glory, are now living like other common people. But the new kid, who wants to be a Musketeer himself, bring action back in their lives. Some villains (guess who) cook a plot to turn over the kingdom and get rid of teenage amateur King. And it comes down to the Three (four, actually) musketeers to stop this from happening.

The movie is in 3D. Except for few scenes, 3D was (literally) a headache. There is not a single boring moment, and things keep happening. Movie keeps its constant pace and neither slows down nor speeds up suddenly. Use of bright vivid colors is awesome. I was getting bored with dark dull colors so far. But you will be amazed by colors Orlando Bloom wears and manages to look regal all the time.😉 Director and writers have done a good job of creating a simple but interesting story (plus leaving a loose end for possibility of a sequel). Some of the scenes were extraordinary.

I would suggest watching this movie in theater but preferably NOT in 3D. I don’t know if it was just me, but 3D does not show the colors as good as normal. I am sure you will not regret watching the four musketeers in action😉

Cheers.
