Just got done watching this on bluray 3D and enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting much, as so many Musketeer movies have been out and I have seen them all. But I was surprised to find this one pretty good (in my opinion) A little over the top with flying ships and all, but a great movie with good action.

The 3D depth is what really impressed me and I don't mean just a few scenes. So many literally had amazing depth that looked far into my TV
Sword fighting also looked good in 3D with some slowed down scenes that were great.

I rate this movie a 9 outa 10 for 3D (depth is simply breathtaking)

3D items I own:

Sony 46" LX900 active 3D set

Sony HMZ-T3 (Cushion pads and light blocker mod)

LG LW6500 passive 3D set

PS3 & PS4

Sony BDP-S570 BD3D player

JVC-GS-TD1 (with Cyclopital base extender)

Fujifilm W3

Sony Alpha 55 (for 3D panoramic photos)

Quadcopter + Zenmuse and GoPro Hero 3 (Filming...

I agree, one if the best 3d I have seen in a live action movie. Pleasantly surprised.

Interesting. I thought the 3D might be garbage, considering they seem to be giving this one away online ($19.99 currently). Any idea why this is so cheap?

Isn't this just a 2 Disc release? That would explain the lower price. I've noticed some 3D movies that used to be 3 or 4 disc combo packs are now revised with less discs and/or no slipcover but with a lower sale price

What is the meaning of life?

Saw it last night and really enjoyed it. 3D was easy to watch and high quality. Brightness was excellent. I recommend it! The story was entertaining too with a kind of Wild Wild West sci fi fiction theme.

Agreed.

I just put the disk in to make sure it would play, and ended up watching 30 min. of the movie.

I had heard bad things about this, but I am very glad I bought it now. The action, and 3D I've seen so far are top-notch!

You guys are kidding, right? I figured this would be a bad movie with bad 3D. I may need to reconsider!

I saw it in the theater and thought the movie was pretty bad, but the 3D was really well done.

I agree in all respects. I thought the movie was fun and entertaining. Admitted Milla Jovovich fan from way back.

Really enjoyed this and at $19.99 in 3d it was a steal. I wish more studios would release 3d blu ray at that price and I would have a large collection.

Same here. Movie was watchable and the 3D was pretty good. I've enjoyed looking at Milla in movies also, but Gabriella Wilde takes the prize in this movie.

Finally saw this in 3D on BluRay today. As others have said, a fun and unpretentious movie with some well executed action sequences and a pretty good cast of characters (the Britney Spears lookalike who plays Constance being the only real misfire). The DaVinci weapons added a little bit of Assassin's Creed to the mix and there were a couple of pretty shameless ripoffs (or were they homages) to A Fistful of Dollars and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan but the whole thing wasn't as nearly over the top as I thought it would be and it even managed to fit in more than a few passages from the original Dumas novel.

In terms of 3D, I found it to have nice depth but not a lot of pop other than the occasional sword thrusting out of the screen. I really thought Paul W.S. Anderson would get more aggressive with the 3D but in the end what you get is a very natural looking image.

Definitely a thumbs up and a good deal at the $20 I paid for it.

Finally watched the bluray last night and loved the 3D photography. I feel Paul W.S. Anderson has a pretty good feel for 3D. The movie, on the other hand, was pretty lame. If you are going to go that far off from the source material just write something original. I realize that's asking to much from Hollywood types. Production values were nice and most of the actors well cast except Constance and the kid that played the country Musketeer...he had no acting ability and was just annoying. Justin Beaver would have done better.

See it for the visuals and fun but don't expect much.

Really, the above quote pretty well sums up my thoughts: a fun but not stupid-dumb action flick with occasional tips-of-the-hat to other films.

Seems like it was set-up for a sequel (and Orlando Bloom has indicated one was possible) - would be interesting to see whether one is made, and whether it is a lame follow-up or not (I'm looking at you, Highlander!).

Milla was quite vocal when this film was released that she was not happy with the way Summit Entertainment dumped this film into theatres. They placed it on a weekend in October that was so loaded with movies and barely even marketed it so that it had very little chance of success. As a result I do believe a sequel is out of the question, especially now that Lionsgate owns Summit.
