From Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon to Resident Evil and Death Race, what action fan doesn’t have a soft spot for Paul W.S. Anderson’s flicks? I will admit it – much like my love of the Fast and Furious franchise, I am a sucker for his movies. To see him turning a period piece like The Three Musketeers into a high-octane guilty pleasure, I am excited to see what he pulls off. Throw in Anderson veteran Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings), Matthew Macfadyen (Death at a Funeral) and Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale), and I get extra excited for over-the-top action and fun.
The Three Musketeers is not yet rated and opens in 3D and 2D on October 14.
