An absurd, ridiculous, and even self-mocking retelling of the Alexander Dumas story. PWSA stages the most beautiful and intricate set pieces in the world and he shows off his humorous side in this film, which is consistently surprising and inventive on a scene by scene basis. PWSA should be viewed as a more experimental filmmaker and his mise en scene proves that he is a master filmmaker and auteur
Embodies all the criticisms levelled at Gore Verbinski's Pirates sequels—belaboured plotting; interminable shtick—but where Verbinski compensates with scale & delirious wonder, Anderson compensates with sex, fashion, symmetry & colour. But oh, those colours. Characters converge on scenery like vivid dots on a Seurat. A triumph of composition, if nothing else.
If every generation gets the version of this story they deserve what did the current one do to deserve something this godawful. Inept on every level from the conception on up. Not one performance of note, terrible cgi effects and a complete lack of sense in story. Almost painful to get through and hard to pick who's performance is the worse here (I'll vote for Milla). Anderson starting to give Uwe Boll competition.
This... whatever it pretends to be, it's one of those moments in life when you feel terribly wrong with yourself, asking: is it possible that I'm actually seeing this horrid piece of "whatever-the-fuck" attempt of a movie-like filthness? That I'm actually letting valuable seconds of my life that can be more fruitful having my arse shitting on a pic of the retards who conceived this abomination? stuff like that.
P-Dubz reimagines "The Three Musketeers" as a mix of Shaw Brothers and Final Fantasy, along with a healthy dose of his love of booby-trapped hallways, intricate sets, and his wife (Milla Jovovich) looking hot. Unfairly described as an attempt to be like "Pirates of the Caribbean", "The Three Musketeers" doesn't commit the crime of being as boring as those movies. It's classic literature turned into trashy fun. Dig.
i'm getting tired of this slow-motion fight-scenes a la 300... i actually like it, but not in every movie! the rest was really okey - pretty funny, well entertaining & good action. but i really dislike the "coolness" in the most of the modern adventure/fantasy movies & too much special effects, this is something i sadly have noticed. now i'm waiting for the second part... !?
