After the success of "Young Guns," studios were quick to roll out other similar movies, including "Mobsters," (aka "Young Hoods"), "Young Guns 2," and a new version of "The Three Musketeers," which could've easily been called "Young Musketeers." It's silly, but fun and spirited, with a generally good cast, although casting all American actors as the leads is a bit distracting. The villains fare better: Tim Curry, relishing his evilness as Cardinal Richelieu, guttural voiced Michael Wincott, essentially playing the same role he did in "Robin Hood," and Rebecca De Mornay, who is pretty, but a little empty as Milady. The swordplay is spirited, but this does compare unfavorably with the 70s version, which had a better cast (Oliver Reed, Charlton Heston, Faye Dunaway, Christopher Lee), a wittier script and more verve. Featuring the hit song "All for Money" by Sting, Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams.
