The Return of the Musketeers

Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Lester
Released:
1989
Rating:
PG

The Return of the Musketeers is the third installment of a trilogy of Musketeers movies by Richard Lester. The 1989 film is based on the book Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas. The Return of the Musketeers opens twenty years after the death of Milady de Winter. Although the Queen currently sits comfortably in her thrown, Milday's conniving little daughter Justine (Kim Cattrall) seeks to steal her crown. Justine slithers her way stealthfully through the court with the help of her friend Cardinal Mazarin (Philippe Noiret). When D'Artagnan (Michael York) catches wind of Justine's motives, he calls upon his friends - Porthos (Frank Finlay), Athos (Olive Reed), and Aramis (Richard Chamberlain) - for their help. But things get a little complicated when the quartet discovers Athos' son, Raoul (C. Thomas Howell) is in love with Justine and will do everything in his power to assist her in getting what she wants. If you enjoyed 1973's The Three Musketeers or 1974's The Four Musketeers, you will most definitely like The Return of the Musketeers.

      • 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.
