The hot-headed young D'Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.
Luke Evans is the second gay actor to portray Aramis after Richard Chamberlain, who played the character in The Three Musketeers (1973)_.
Well-played. I could use men like you.
Aramis: Ehh... I already have a job.
Athos: I'm a drunk.
Porthos: I'm independently wealthy.
D'Artagnan: Thanks, but no.
Richelieu: The day will come when you'll wish you had said "yes".
D'Artagnan: Maybe. But not today.
Some scenes show Versailles. The "Three Musketeers" takes place during Louis XIII's reign. Versailles was not build before Louis XIV's reign, circa 1660. Louis XIII died in 1643. Should have shown the Louvre instead, in Paris (without the pyramid, of course).
At the end of the movie, the first credits have a dedication,"For Bernd", referencing Bernd Eichinger, who died in January of 2011. He was producer of 4 of the Resident Evil films, also directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.
