Most critics consider The Three Musketeers (2011) (Blu-ray release 2012-3-12) to be bad.  I think I can understand that.  Two of the three musketeers have little screen time, let alone character development.  All three are supporting actors only.  Even though I have no idea what the original Three Musketeers story should be, I’m sure this 2011 version does not resemble the classics.  So people feel offended.

However, character and screenplay issues aside, this movie has plenty of action scenes, and good enough pacing.  The action scenes may not be original, but I think they are done well enough.  Most importantly, there are airships.  There aren’t enough movies with airships.  So I consider this movie to be quite entertaining, despite the numerous flaws.  I like it much more than Resident Evil from the same director.
