ashley h At Sword's Point is a disappointing film. It is about second-generation Musketeers are reunited by the ageing Queen Anne who wants to stem the villainy of her treacherous nephew, the Duc de Lavalle. Cornel Wilde and Maureen O'Hara give horrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Lewis Allen did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Frances H One of my favorites from the old Pittsburgh's The Early Show. They layer all the old classics and were on at 4:00 p.m. everyday when we got home from school. A classic adventure flick, as most of them were, and one we'd watch whenever it was on. It just seemed to get better and better with each viewing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/14/15 Full Review Audience Member Decent reimagining of the Three Musketeers legend - all overplayed of course in true sound stage swashbuckling fashion. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A.K.A: Sons of the Musketeers. I once read that it's 'impossible to make a bad Musketeer film' clearly the man behind that nugget had never seen this addition to the cinematic legacy of Dumas' characters. Concerning itself with the sons and daughter of the original Musketeers who face yet another threat to the stability of France, this is a woeful piece of cinema. Featuring more thigh/back slapping and head back uproarious laughter towards the sky than a panto, truly awful choreography and a distinct lack of respect for an audiences ability to tell the difference between location and stage shooting, not to mention a total disregard for coherent editing and continuity. If it weren't for Maureen O'Hara's presence in the cast list I doubt this would even get an honourable mention in the Musketeer filmic canon, still its a damn sight better than the Paul W.S. Anderson version but that's not saying much. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member sequel of sorts 2 'the 3 musketeers' Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member The performance and story of this film was fun to watch, the way the characters conducted themselves through out the film was very easy on the eye, and all characters were likeable. Maureen O'Hara's role was very much the influence of this film, the tom boy character she plays was very easy to watch and made a difference to this film and of course to the set of characters. A fun enjoyable film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
