The Millionth Installment of the ‘Three Musketeers’

The Three Musketeers remake of 2011.
I’ll be honest, I had very low expectations for this motion picture. Logan Lerman with long hair? Not quite a pretty picture. But significantly better than Justin Bieber (sorry kid, your annoyingly unoriginal and repetitive in your musical decisions)

But when I walked out of the theater, I was amazed. Lerman’s hair looked slightly better by the end of the movie and it was nothing like I thought it would be.

Alex Litvak and Andrew Davies made a diamond out of Alexandre Dumas’ coal. These men twisted the classic tale and made it their own awesome, modern version. I expect great things from the crew of this movie.

I’ve seen most of the Musketeer films and, as usual, expected it to copy off of one of them. But nope. It combined them all from Gene Kellys’ moves to Oliver Platts’ disgraceful but comical drinking habits.

This film is original yet respectful to its initial storyline. Which is always a good sign for an excellent sequel!
