All for what? And none for all!
May entertain ya, but don't joke about it being well-made!. If its elegantly-crafted Thor is The Godfather. D'artagnan looks silly, ameteur acting, but he moves surprisingly nimble, comes alive with swords. I was worried the over-the-top action was gonna make the film too busy & hollow, but when I saw how hollow it was anyway once it slowed down I begged for it back! It had strange pacing. It took awhile to tell a simplistic story, too many diversions on supporting characters. Jovovich should never have been cast. Her pretty cat face is nothin new today. Never could act & once a razzie nodder always one. Go ahead, be phoney & out of period, but have some soul, originality! Aramis, Porthos & Athos do fine... when the camera's back on them. The comedy didn't often go with it, kindergarten jokes often don't. Felt more like a parody of Dumas. Since it was so heightened the film needed some creativity to pull off. Looks like they had money, but no imagination. A pretty but plastic world.
