Randall Wallace isn't much of a director, but he cast Peter Sarsgaard as John Malkovich's son which is one of the two or three greatest decisions any director has ever made. The film is fine, but sweet jesus has there ever been a more perfect bond between two unrelated actors?
It can be an intriguing Musketeer movie for some because it is about the seldom filmed final entry in the book series, but having Gerard Depardieu as the comedic relief when he is the only one in the cast that really is French was a bad move since everyone else do such a good acting job. It also feels like there is something that was cut in post-production as there are characters that feel very underused.
...Un film con un gran elenco, destacado por esos grandes mosqueteros. Una historia que cuenta una de tantas leyendas de tiempos pasados, que como ellas siempre tendremos la duda y la chispa de saber que fue lo que paso realmente. Esta cinta es disfrutable y entretenida como tantas otras versiones de esta misteriosa historia.
Very historically inaccurate, to the point where there is a shot of Dicaprio as young Louis XIV and behind him we can see a painting of Louis XV. The film does not serve as an accurate representation of the story or the time period and it certainly feels like I wasted my time on watching it. A cheesy, embarassing and cheap piece of crap. Such bland performances and bad script, 1/5 stars
