This version of Dumas' novel is an action-packed, fast-moving adventure which manages to overcome even the potentially crippling blow of having one of the main characters named after an aftershave, and features a welcome return to tights (well almost) for Tim Curry.

The basis of the plot, for anyone not already familiar with it, is as follows: D'Artagnan (O'Donnell), arriving in Paris to join the famed Musketeers, discovers that they have been disbanded by baddie Cardinal Richlieu (Curry), who has tricked the King into getting rid of his protectors in order to leave him vulnerable.

However, the three musketeers of the title have escaped being sent away to England with the others, and due to various misunderstandings D'Artagnan ends up contracted to duels with all of them, (WARNING - if you don't want to know what happens at the end, skip this bit). Via a number of sub-plots designed mainly as a vehicle for Rebecca de Mornay's cleavage, a great deal of chaos, and even more very fab sword fights and so on, the plot against the King is revealed and the baddies captured.

Directed by Stephen Herek (Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure) in true Hollywood swashbuckler style, this is a film not to be missed- particularly if you fancy spending an evening with Kiefer Sutherland and Charlie Sheen in some rather fetching frilly costumes.
