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.
Christoph Waltz (Cardinal Richelieu) has the same birthday (October 4) as Charlton Heston, who played Richelieu in The Three Musketeers (1973)/The Four Musketeers: Milady's Revenge (1974).
There's one more piece of advice.
D'Artagnan: I know, I know. Don't get into any trouble.
D'Artagnan's Father: Wrong. Get into trouble. Make mistakes. Fight, love, live. And remember, always, you're a Gascon and our son. Now go. Go.
Louis XIII's palace is obviously supposed to be Versailles (from the look of it and the interior scenes from the Hall of Mirrors), but an aerial shot places it at the site of the Louvre. Louis XIII did indeed live at the Louvre, but it didn't look anything like the palace in the movie at the time the story is set. The court moved to Versailles during Louis XIV's reign.
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.
