The Three Musketeers: D'Artagnan (out May 16) is the first instalment of a two film French series (the second movie is out next month) which adapts Alexandre Dumas’ 1844 novel. The story isn’t the easiest to follow (lots of characters and politics) but there’s something appealing about a swashbuckling epic with a bombastic film score set across a variety of cool locations with swords, horses, and spirited battles. Grade: B.
