TRAILER: The Three Musketeers (2011)

PLOT: The hot-headed young D'Artagnan (Lerman) along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers (Stevenson, Macfayden, and Evans) must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent (Jovovich) and her villainous employer (Waltz) from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.

CAST: Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson), Ray Stevenson (The Book of Eli), Matthew Macfayden (Death at a Funeral and Pride & Prejudice), Luke Evans (Tamara Drewe), Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds and The Green Hornet), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Juno Temple (Year One)

VERDICT: This is like The Three Musketeers meets The Matrix or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It seems unrealistic to the time period but then again that's the trend that Pirates of the Caribbean and Sherlock Holmes have started. That said, I love the sword fights, the witty repartee, Lerman as a charismatic lead, and the idea of seeing Waltz as a bad guy again. My only qualms with it so far are Bloom's ridiculous attempts at looking villainous and Jovovich's ninja skills.

Release Date: October 14
