Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"I may not wear a tunic, but I believe I have the heart of a musketeer."
- Chris O'Donnell (D'Artagnan)
"All for one... and more for me!
- Cardinal Richelieu (Tim Curry)
Rating: 2/5 -- A stupid, bumbling misfire, which wastes a solid cast.
Arizona Daily Star
Rating: 3/5 -- A fun adventure, but nothing new. Average retelling of the legend. Platt steals the show.
Rating: C -- [A] sound adaptation of the famous tale, hewing closely to the story and its buddy aspect. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- It must have been great fun to make it (what young actor doesn't want to dash around on horseback and engage in swashbuckling swordfights?), but it's not that much fun to watch. It's all sound and energy, without plan or meaning. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Rewatch the Lester film or even the Ritz Bros.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Conceived frankly as a product, complete with hit-to-be theme song over the closing credits, this adventure film cares less about storytelling than about keeping the Musketeers' feathered hats on straight whenever they go galloping. Full Review
New York Times
...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...
Sight and Sound
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.

- 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.
