This comedy-adventure is one of several adaptations of Alexadre Dumas'
classic novel. Provincial swordsman D'Artagnan (Chris O'Donnell) travels to
Paris to follow in his father's footsteps and become a king's guard, a musketeer.
Meanwhile, the evil royal advisor Cardinal Richelieu (Tim Curry), with
the help of one-eyed Captain Rochefort (Michael Wincott), has disbanded the King's bodyguards
in his devious attempt to usurp the power of the King (Hugh O'Conor) and rule France.
Three of the musketeers, Athos (Kiefer Sutherland), Porthos (Oliver Platt), and Aramis (Charlie Sheen),
escape and partner with D'Artagnan in an attempt to thwart the Cardinal and his minions, who
also include the duplicitous Milady de Winter (Rebecca DeMornay).
The film is an entertaining, humorous, and family-friendly version of the swashbuckling
classic, and is especially fun for younger audiences.
This film is rated PG.
