Theatrical report

A loose reinvention. A very loose reinvention.

The Musketeer is a B-grade Hollywood swashbuckler upgraded with some post-The Matrix hand to hand combat action. you'll have fun, if you don't mind the improbable stunts, the French people with Californian accents, the French people with English accents, the simplistic themes and even more simplistic characters.

The redeeming factor is Catherine Deneuve's slightly fearful, slightly bitter, wholly stupendous queen of action in all her ripe, mature beauty. Other than that, well, Justin Chambers is cute in an "I just made a Hollywood film" kind of way, and prepare yourself for some graphic horror because all the musketeers have mullets.
