While I remembered a portion of the plot, I definitely forgot several important details.

Overall, it was a fun movie to watch and I thought it flowed well. There was a good balance of tension and resolution throughout the movie, building up for an exciting and dramatic finish.

Athos (John Malkovich)


Instant Comments:
"Raoul, I am a young king, but I am King." "Then be a good king, Your Majesty." Oh snaps.
Ha. That scream sounds out of place.
Man, Athos (John Malkovich) is such a bad-ass.
Oh, I love his reaction when he touches his face just ever so slightly.

Aramis (Jeremy Irons)

"Why are you so glum?" "I expected action. There was no killing, there was no fighting. I was useless." Ha!
Lol. Porthos staring at her cleavage.
"I can make your sword straight." Aww, how sad, three woman and he couldn't get it up.
Hahaha. "It's alright, I sawed the beam." The hut collapses. "I'm a genius, not an engineer."

D'Artagnan (Gabriel Byrne)

The problem with duty.
Way to ruin things D'artagnan.
"We fear the mask would destroy you." "I wear the mask, it does not wear me."
The big confirmation at the 1 hour 55 minute mark.

Porthos (Gérard Depardieu)
