It starts today in Australia, 20th of October.  In 3D, no less.  If I had a beard, I'd be stroking it right about now.

I saw this flick! It is unexpectedly good! In a spoof of action movies sense... Beside it is more similar to the book than many other book inspired movies!

The movie is meant to be corny, the first scene tells it clearly. Atos uses two absurd weapons that in the sheath looked like two shotguns! From there it is more and more corny and absurd! Yet always charming...
In the context the flying vessels sound almost normal. If you know something of physics you will pass half of the time asking: how is possible?!? and the other half laughing.
(i.e. water level in connected system, why Venice does not have flying vessels in the first place, ...)

This movie is like an American ``Drunken Taoism''. Crazy, downright insane; but extremely enjoyable. Oh... the story recalls the three musketeers in many points. Not only the characters names.

Downside? In the book the four main characters are determinators badasses and even if injured multiple times they reach their goals and even with multiple problems they win.
In the movie they are god-mode marty stues. Hardly ever anything goes even a little wrong or they are injured. It is so exaggerate that overtakes the ``badass'' concept.

(sorry for the tvtropes terminology, I hope it puts the point)

Probably it is not worth the cinema, but my friends, you have to rent the DVD.

 Athos is a scuba diving ninja, Aramis is Batman and Porthos is the French Hulk. If you don't mind shredding every bit of nuance, subtlety, logic and historical accuracy from the novel and replacing it with over-the-top, outrageous and sometimes ridiculous spectacle and special fx, it's a fun movie. And I speak as an unapologetic fan of the novel and most of the cinematic versions. If you know going in what to expect it's not bad.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
