6. The Three Musketeers (2011)
No, the original story is certainly not bad. After a handful of ho-hum versions of this grand tale, Hollywood decided that audiences needed a Matrix-esque version of the beloved classic. Can we please stop turning classic stories and fairy tales into mindless action movies? It’s more than apparent that the ingredients don’t mix at all.
Airships and 3D format should never be associated with “The Three Musketeers.” This feature is trying to be a spectacle, rather than telling a good story. Lady de Winter in this movie is basically Milla Jovovich in all her other movies: an awesome female character who can jump, twirl, swordfight and flip. Seriously, all the the people in this movie are cartoon characters that belong in an episode of “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.” It’s all cringe-worthy, and the horror comes from good actors as well! The cast includes Orlando Bloom, Christoph Waltz, Luke Evans, and Matthew Macfadyen. All of these people should have been solid gold in a rendition of this story, but alas, ’twas not meant be.
