Paul W.S. Anderson has been working on the Three Musketeer for a while, which also marks the momentous return of Orlando Bloom to the world of film after taking a hiatus to hone his craft. Let’s take a look at how things turned out.
I like what I’m seeing here. I haven’t watched a ‘Three Musketeers’ movie since I watched the Man in the Iron Mask, (I know!), and this looks like an entertaining way to get re-acquainted with the characters as I’m usually a sucker for anything with Bruckheimer level explosions. Paul W.S. Anderson is really hit or miss with me with this one leaning toward ‘hit’ so far, and I’m always looking forward to seeing how he fits in Milla Jovovich.
"To those of you who know me: you will be aware by now that my ambition is unlimited. You know that I will settle for nothing short of greatness, or I will die trying. To those of you who do not yet know me: allow me to introduce myself. My name is Peter Weyland, and if you'll indulge me, I'd like to change the world."
—Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland from Prometheus, 2012
