Movie: The Three Musketeers

Yes, another incarnation of The Three Musketeers has hit theaters.  The previews made it seem pretty action packed (and I LOVE action movies), so I decided to go see it.

Note: my favorite musketeers movie is The Man In The Iron Mask.  Where John Malkovich goes, I am sure to follow.

I give this latest version a “Highly Recommend”.  I’m actually tempted to see it again this weekend.  The action didn’t disappoint.  A couple of cool twists, and a nice ending that leaves room for a sequel.  Kinda weird seeing Orlando Bloom as a bad guy, but it ended up working.  Poor Orlando, he only seems to be able to pull off “period piece” movies, but hey…whatever works!

I did opt to see this in 2D.  I didn’t even think there was a 3D version until I got there.  Some of the cooler scenes (mainly the ones with swordplay) were definitely shot in a way where seeing it in 3D would have made it even more cooler.  However, I don’t feel like I missed anything.

So…go see it.
