Not quite Dumas, but no dummy. The brash new Muskies: Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Aramis (Luke Evans), Porthos (Ray Stevenson), plus D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) like a 17th-century mall dude. Add saucy, athletic Milady (Milla Jovovich), haughty Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom), cruel Rochefort (Mads Mikkelsen), and not-very-Catholic Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz): “Evil’s just a point of view.” Also a da Vinci airship, posh graphics, palaces (Versailles and one in Bavaria), and a plot never quite so fancy free as the ’70s swashbucklers from Richard Lester. But director Paul W.S. Anderson delivers some finely costumed and dashing entertainment. 2011.
