Director:

 Richard Lester

Writers:

 George MacDonald Fraser (screenplay), Alexandre Dumas père (book)

Stars:

 Michael York, Oliver Reed, Frank Finlay 
 
Richard Lester returned to his double-barreled successes of the 1970s, The Three Musketeers andThe Four Musketeers, with Return of the Musketeers, a film that was inexplicably shelved for several years, making its belated premiere on cable television. Based on Alexandre Dumas's novel {-Twenty Years Later}, the film takes place (appropriately enough) two decades after the death of Milady de Winter. Though Milady may have died, her nefarious schemes have been taken up by her daughter Justine (Kim Cattrall), who maneuvers with the conspiring Cardinal Mazarin (Philippe Noiret) to gain control of the crown through Queen Anne (Geraldine Chaplin). D'Artagnan (Michael York) calls for his old compatriots Porthos (Frank Finlay), Athos (Oliver Reed), and Aramis (Richard Chamberlain) to once again go "one for all and all for one." But complications set in when Athos and Aramis take sides with the crown and Athos' adopted son Raoul (C. Thomas Howell) falls in love in Justine. The film is dedicated to character actor Roy Kinnear who plays Planchet, who died in an equestrian accident during the production.

    Posted by on Jun 22nd 2016

    Excellent and worthy sequel to the classic 3 and 4 Musketeer films made in the early 70s. Good story, rich with action and humor....highly recommended...the dvd is also of highest picture and sound quality.


  3. Not quite up to it's predecessor but still glorious 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 20th 2015

    Hugely entertaining with an excellent script by George McDonald Fraser and all the original cast enjoying themselves hugely. It's not as faithful or well-structured as the Three/Four Musketeers movies but that's hardly a complaint. It still grabs you and brings you along quite nicely.

    The background events and commentary, which underlines the difference between the pretensions of the musketeers and the more shabby reality around them is as good and funny as I remembered it. After seeing it, I realised that I had been carrying around the memory of D'Artagnan racing down the stairs, shouting "You men! Follow me!" and rushing off to someone saying "Who was that then?" and nobody moving for something like 25 years.


  4. looking for it? Here it is! 5 Star Review

    Considering how popular the first two films were it's amazing that no one has ever paid attention to the third part. Zeus has the best picture quality, letterbox, and I think it's one of those films that's never been available in anything but VHS. I mean Roy Kinnear died doing his own horse stunt in this film.
