Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Teaming bankable box office gold and real life rogues Sheen and Sutherland together alongside newcomer O’Donnell must have seemed like a master stroke at the time. Add in a few other mainstays of early 90’s cinema, some hot up and comers like Anwar and Delpy and an historical vibe and you should have had a classic. Sadly it didn’t quite end that well but revisiting this film some 28+ years later it’s amazing just how enjoyable it actually is. Okay yes it’s deeply flawed and the 90’s action feels pretty cheap but it’s almost worth watching for Tim Curry alone who gives a masterful performance of scenery chewing. Honestly the 90’s Three Musketeers is MUCH better than you remember and thanks to Disney Plus you can relive it in it’s full 1080p glory. What more could you ask for?
Best Bit: Curry.
