Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 03/01/1994
"...As faithful rendition as any....Fidelity here lies not so much in keeping to the plot of the novel as in preserving its spirit, in staging the swordfights with grace and elan..."
Variety - 11/22/1993
"...[The] film comes alive whenever Curry is onscreen....Also aces is Platt....Platt has the sense of relish, experience and tossed-off humor that defines a Musketeer..."

Product Description:

The Musketeers, 16th Century defenders of the French monarch, have just been disbanded by the duplicitous Cardinal Richelieu. Now only three of them remain--Athos, Prothos and Aramis--to stand in the way of Richelieu who's plotting to overthrow the young King and assume the throne. Barely post-pubescent, His Royal Highness is extremely vulnerable to Richelieu's elaborate political machinations; but fortunately, D'Artagnan, a young man longing to join forces with the Musketeers, happens along. D'Artagnan's worldly idealism and reverence for the Musketeers infuses the trio with a renewed sense of importance as they unite one for all and all for one. The classic adventure tale updated, with soundtrack music by Sting, Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart.

Production Notes:

  • Shot on Eastmanfilm, Technicolor prints, Panavision equipment, and on location in Austria. The film is replete with real castles and indigenous foliage. Some scenes were also filmed in Cornwall, England.
  • Co-produced by One for All, in association with Caravan Pictures, Wolfgang Odelga Filmproduktion and Vienna Film Financing Fund.
  • Additional credits: Michael T. Ryan (music editor), Adolf Uhrmacher (makeup supervisor), Burke Matisson (title design), and Buena Vista Imaging (titles and opticals).
  • Stunt doubles: Dan Speaker (Charlie Sheen) and Jimmy McConnell (Kiefer Sutherland).
  • This is the 5th film made from Alexandre Dumas' tale. Among the two best known versions are George Sidney's 1948 movie, which starred Gene Kelly as D'Artagnan and Richard Lesler's high-spirted comic romp made in 1973.
  • "The Three Musketeers" was directed by Stephen Herek who also directed "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and "The Mighty Ducks."
  • This version of "The Three Musketeers" is being called the 'Tiger Beat' rendition of a much revived classic because of its youthful stars. But lately this seems to be the norm, as many classics are remade for the younger generation. Take Kenneth Branagh's "Much Ado About Nothing," as another example.
  • According to "Premiere" the producers originally approached Brad Pitt for the role of D'Artagnan, but when he declined, producer Joe Roth approached Chris O'Donnell. O'Donnell, whose film credits include: "Men Don't Leave," "Fried Green Tomatoes," "School Ties" and "Scent of a Woman," is the latest addition to Hollywood's brat pack. He supposedly earned $500,000 for the part in "The Three Musketeers." O'Donnell, however, was an outsider among co-stars Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, and Oliver Platt. Kiefer and Charlie worked together previously when making "Young Guns," and Oliver and Kiefer made "Flatliners" together.
  • Charlie Sheen reportedly earned $3.5 million dollars for the part of Aramis.
  • Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification.
