"The Musketeer" is a
Peter Hyamsfilm very loosely based on Alexandre Dumas, père's classic novel " The Three Musketeers", starring Catherine Deneuve, Tim Roth, Mena Suvari, Stephen Rea, Nick Moran, Bill Treacherand Justin Chambers.
The film is notable for eschewing
historical European swordfightingin its action sequences, for Hong Kong film-style martial arts choreography and wirework. This movie even has Tsui Hark's regular actor Xin-Xin Xiongas a stunt choreographer. [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0944578/]
The film enjoyed a commercial success in the
United States. This film topped the US box officeupon its release in September 2001, and went on grossing $27 million in US box office. [http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?page=weekend&id=musketeer.htm] Since Universal Picturesand Miramax Filmsonly paid $7.5 million to buy the North Americaand U.K.distribution rights of this film [http://www.filmstew.com/showArticle.aspx?ContentID=1548] , this film was very profitable for those two studios.

Rotten Tomatoes. [http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/musketeer/] Many critics cited terrible acting, unrealistic action scenes, and confusing editing.
