The Return of the Musketeers

Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Lester
Released:
1989
Rating:
PG

The Return of the Musketeers is the long-delayed follow-up to the two 1970s Musketeers movies directed by Richard Lester, and is based on the book Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas. Two decades after the death of Milady de Winter, her conniving (illegitimate) daughter Justine seeks revenge on her executioners. When D'Artagnan - still a lieutenant in the Musketeers - catches wind of her activities, he calls upon his friends Porthos, Athos and Aramis for their help. But things get a little complicated when the quartet discovers Athos' adopted son, Raoul, is in love with Justine and likely to offer her his help, albeit uncomprehendingly. A flop where both The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers had been huge hits, The Return of the Musketeers is nonetheless a lot of fun.

    • Although Phillipe Noiret spoke fluent English and had appeared in many British and American films, he was dubbed by another actor in this film, perhaps because he was playing an Italian.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Roy Kinnear was thrown from his horse during the filming of a stunt for this film, and died of a heart attack in a Spanish hospital shortly afterwards. Richard Lester, who counted Kinnear as a close friend (they had previously worked together on eight other films), was said to have been so upset by this that he never directed another fiction film again.
