D’Artagnan, ein temperamentvoller junger Gascogner, kommt nach Paris und verbündet sich dort mit den drei Musketieren des Königs: Athos, Porthos und Aramis. Gemeinsam kämpfen sie gegen die dunklen Machenschaften des Kardinals Richelieu. Als sich D’Artagnan in Constance Bonacieux, Vertraute der Königin, verliebt, bringt er sich wirklich in Gefahr: Denn seine Leidenschaft treibt ihn direkt in die Fänge der ebenso geheimnisvollen wie gefährlichen Milady de Winter. Vom Louvre zum Buckingham Palace, von den Gossen von Paris zur Belagerung der Festung La Rochelle … in einem Königreich, das durch Religionskriege gespalten und von einer britischen Invasion bedroht ist, kreuzen eine Handvoll Männer und Frauen die Schwerter und binden ihr Schicksal an das Schicksal Frankreichs.

Englisch Fans of Dumas' might not agree, but "The Three Musketeers" is at best "just" period-conditioned consumable reading, excessively naive and heavily romanticized. Directors attempting to adapt the book were aware of its limitations and the resulting risks for today's audience, often opting for exaggeration and comedic stylization. Martin Bourboulon takes a different approach, opting for a "serious" adventure-romantic treatment lined with a star-studded cast and solid production design. It's arguably the "dirtiest" and most raw treatment of the material I've encountered so far. Despite all efforts, it falls short. It encounters similar pitfalls as directors of recent Bond films, trying to imbue their hero with deeper psychology and adding more artistic elements, yet still ending up with an overblown action movie featuring an invincible hero who dispatches scores of opponents without batting an eye. Here, in the confrontation scene with the cardinal's guards, the quartet of heroes handles six times the numerical superiority without a scratch (and moreover, in a disadvantageous situation of surprise and encirclement!). The action fight scenes are mostly shot in a confusing manner, but the positives clearly outweigh the negatives. Eva Green as Milady and Vincent Cassel as Athos are reliable highlights. Overall impression: 80%. ()

Deutsch Weg sind die kräftigen Farben und die fröhlichen Choreografien von Lesters klassischer Version. Bourboulon lässt seine Helden mit der Schnauze in der Erde und im Schlamm wühlen, D'Artagnan in der ersten Szene sogar buchstäblich. In dem Film gibt es nicht so viel Humor. Das heißt aber nicht, dass dem Trio, welches in Wirklichkeit ein Quartett ist, ein einzigartiger Witz und Charme fehlen. Die Besetzung ist gut, die Ausstattung richtig schäbig, die Kostüme sind dreckig und die Handlung voll von Intrigen. Die Abweichungen von Dumas kann man rechtfertigen. Man sieht deutlich, dass die neue Adaption die Intrigen hinter den Kulissen in den Vordergrund bringen und die Liebesmotive in den Hintergrund rücken möchte. Das ist in Ordnung. Schade, dass manche Verkürzungen der Handlung eine ungeordnete Logik haben. Nach ein paar Gedanken, ob der ganze protestantische Spaß unter Paris nicht nur eine überflüssige Abschweifung ist, siegt letztendlich das Gefühl, dass alles dazu führen kann, dass der zweite Teil prima sein wird. Schließlich haben mich nur Kleinigkeiten gestört, vor allem die Tatsache, dass Richelieu eine Figur ohne Ausdruck ist. Alles andere passt aber. Die in einer Aufnahme gedrehten Actionszenen haben die verspielten Choreografien durch einen physischen Charakter ersetzt und die Musketiere verstehen sich gut. Ein sehr würdiger Beitrag zu dem Dumas-Kanon! ()

Deutsch Nach dem Neunzigerjahrefilm Der Mann in der Eisernen Maske und Andersons etwas überdrehter Verfilmung ist dies meine dritte Begegnung mit dem unsterblichen Klassiker, aber ich habe ihn nie gelesen, so dass ich den Filmemachern ihre (Un-)Treue bezüglich des Ausgangsmaterials nicht vorwerfen kann. Wenn man sich den Film anschaut und bedenkt, dass die Geschichte von Die drei Musketiere auf zwei Filme aufgeteilt ist, spürt man jedoch, dass die Filmemacher in dieser Hinsicht Sorgfalt walten ließen. Da es sich um eine berühmt-berüchtigte Geschichte handelt, bietet der Film keine großen Überraschungen, dafür aber ein solides Abenteuer voller Action, Intrigen und fairer Kämpfe - die "blutige" Hochzeit oder die Verfolgungsjagd auf den Klippen waren wirklich gut. Ich bin gespannt auf die Fortsetzung, in der Eva Green mehr Platz eingeräumt wird, der diese dämonischen Kreaturen einfach stehen. ()

Deutsch Das schwächste Processing, das ich je gesehen habe... Fade Athos, unauffälliger Porthos, unsichtbarer Aramis, widerlicher und unsympathischer d'Artagnan, absolut null Richelieu... Nur die Frauen retten es, Eva Monster können es hervorragend und Lyna als Constance wird ebenfalls erfreuen. Unaufhörliche Langeweile. ()

Englisch In the future, on a repeat, I'll always prefer Lester's Musketeers anyway, because it has enough juicy popcorn to feed all of Nigeria, it doesn't skimp on the humour (which is almost absent in this French version) and the vivacious Michael York is like the finest wine as D'Artagnan. On the other hand, I like this French unpolished concept. Especially the magnificent production design! Muddy, unpaved, sandy streets, men sweaty and dirty (and with yellow teeth ), when, as we know, hygiene was a priority in the 17th century, even among the high classes, and the camera with muted colours adds a lot to that realistic impression. And what can we say, cherchez la femme Eva Green is after all a sexier milady than Faye Dunaway. So actually, when I sum up the comparison, I come out with a tie, and that's not a bad mark at all.

Englisch This successful adaptation of Dumas's classic slightly updates the famous story and relies on great action scenes, beautiful sets and a charismatic cast. It completely omits humour and plays on a serious note, and it mostly works very well. Unfortunately, Martin Bourboulon doesn't quite manage to sell the more intimate scenes and dialogue, and towards the end it feels like he's bitten off too big a bite; the finale, however impressive, is a bit too much. But despite these problems, this is a highly above-average adventure flick straddling the line between old-school and modern filmmaking. ()

Englisch The concept of an old-school adventure film, the kind that is no longer in vogue today. This is Dumas to the core. Admittedly, in terms of style, it's dirtier and grittier than usual, with a few (not bad at all) subplots of its own, but otherwise it's exactly what you'd want from a modern adaptation of a classic. The production design, the locations, the costumes, the choreography of the single take action, the pacing, the characters, everything is so classic Three Musketeers that is almost surprising. I expected (or rather feared) a greater mincing of the source material in a (post)modern package. As soon as I left the cinema I immediately looked to see when the second part would come, and sadly, it isn’t until the end of the year. ()

Englisch A fan of historical big movies should not hesitate to go to the cinema. A French adaptation of the famous classic by Alexandre Dumas has arrived and I would say it is also the best to date. The huge budget is evident, the beautiful locations and settings are a delight and the best French stars are available: Vincent Cassel, Eva Green and Francois Civil. There are slight changes to the original story, so it's not an exact copy, but they are minor deviations that I welcome warmly. The new adaptation is without a doubt grittier, more action-packed, dirtier and darker. I was most impressed by the action shot in one take, which fits perfectly and is intense enough. I can't recall better filmed sword fights from other films. The finale in particular can lean on the attractive cathedral setting and the decent chaos that erupts there is delicious. All the actors do a good job and even the non-action passages where political intrigue builds up are entertaining. Certainly the film is also suitably suspenseful and atmospheric and visually impressive. I look forward to the second part. 7.5/10. ()

Englisch A swashbuckling, raucous and modern adaptation of Dumas' classic. More emphasis is placed on the action scenes, which are gritty, dynamic, and with great choreography. There have been so many versions of “The Three Musketeers” that I'm not even sure how it was supposed to be done, but the snipers in the church is a very good sequence. Eva Green is incredible as Milady, and overall it's a very strong cast. The ending is outrageously open and I'm looking forward to the second one. ()

Englisch Finally, a properly filmed legend. Although not so heavyweight in terms of the actors' names, it can't compare with the 90s version, but actually in everything else it does and in many parameters it even surpasses it. This new remake is much less of a likeable pulp flick and much more of a gritty, dark film of intrigue with excellent sets and fantastically shot action, but there's very little of that so far and that's a shame. Only a fraction of films in French production have this kind of bold handheld camerawork and editing. It's expected that the sequel will be suitably epic and live up to expectations, as many fans are duly hyped after the first installment, and quite rightly so. PS: Captain Rochefort is missing! ()

Englisch Ever since I first read the book, I found myself pondering why those skilled swordsmen were dubbed musketeers, but it never piqued my curiosity enough to delve into it. I now understand the stark contrast between a musketeer and a Royal Musketeer, which evolved significantly over time, with the Royal Musketeers eventually forming the cavalry guard in the 18th century. This revelation cleared up a slew of misconceptions for me, and had the creators opted for flintlock muskets over matchlock, I might have given them five stars out of sheer enthusiasm. Alas, they missed the mark by a whole century. While I'm unsure if Alexandre Dumas had Huguenot roots, it's undeniable that Cardinal Richelieu's portrayal as a villain contrasts sharply with his historical collaboration with Louis XIII, which proved pivotal for France (and earned gratitude from a multitude of Huguenots in the captured La Rochelle). It's a rare instance where I find myself defending a Catholic cardinal... Setting aside the fact that the source material is pure fiction and poor Queen Anne is portrayed as some sort of party girl, the creators did justice to the tale as best they could. Having witnessed numerous adaptations of this story, I must confess that today's experience resonated most with me. D'Artagnan emerged as an ambitious young man not only striving for a position as a Royal Musketeer but with clear ambitions for an Algiers invasion. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and eagerly await a sequel. / Lesson learned: Belly flopping from the White Cliffs of Dover might not be the brightest idea. 4*+ ()
