Описание: Это замечательный музыкальный фильм, снятый по одному из самых знаменитых приключенческих романов Александра Дюма. Четверо друзей - мушкетеров спасают честь королевы Франции, вступают в единоборство со всесильным кардиналом Ришелье и коварной миледи, а главное - наслаждаются жизнью.
Рецензии: A properly light-hearted adaptation of A. Dumas' book, with a lot of singing, dancing, fencing and prancing around.
What's bad about this movie, is that it's ultimately brainless and looks like it was made for 8-year-olds, or something, but this is why I still remember it in the first place - because I first saw it when I was about that age. (True, this is just the age when people normally read the book). Another disadvantage is that the characters don't look like Frenchmen at all - and don't even attempt to, except D'Artagnan and possibly Athos. These two arguably do have something "French" about them.
What's good about this movie is that it offers no angle to the wind, and you can take it in like a glass of beer - you're through before you even know it.
One more thing, the film was obviously made under a strong influence of "CJ Superstar", which shows especially in the fact that Aramis is the spit and image of Ted Neeley (with a goatee) - looks like him and sings like him, though I can't say if that's good or bad.
