The Three Musketeers 3D is just another of the numerous remakes of the classic. But because of the new technology that this age brings us, this time, we get to see it in 3D. Similar to the several other adaptations of The Three Musketeers, this new take still shows D’Artagnan as the young man who desires to be anointed as a Musketeer, and his dream is to protect the King of France. Of course after that he crosses paths with the three renowned musketeers, Porthos, Athos, and Aramis, then becomes friends with the three. As he tags along with them to help them save the throne of France, D’Artagnan falls in love, but becomes the best of all the musketeers.
The director of this film is Paul W.S. Anderson, who will also be responsible for the latest Milla Jovovich movie, Resident Evil 5. Since RE5 is to be released soon as well, then the director must be fantastic. Just as it is difficult to make a regular film, then a 3D film is much harder to accomplish. So if you can make and release two 3D films in a year, then that must be an achievement.
What’s also good to know about the movie is that the original writer of this story, Alexandre Dumas, wrote a ton of works and 156 films have been based on his writings. So no matter how many remakes The Three Musketeers goes through, it is a timeless favorite. Another famous work of his that has been a hit in the theaters is the Count of Monte Cristo, starring Jim Caviezel.
