Three Musketeers, The : Movie Review

When it clicks, when it borrows from better films (The Matrix, 300) to accent its over-the-top action with slow motion visual pyrotechnics, Paul W. S. Anderson's take on the Alexandre Dumas classic The Three Musketeers is actually pretty good. No great shakes or important cinematic revelation, but a decent re-imagining none the less. Swiping sequences from the original novel while adding a surreal 'airship' element to the mix (the better to mimic a certain swashbuckling Pirates franchise, perhaps?), the film offers up an experience that's too inconsistent to be wholly good, but too enjoyable to be all that bad.
