Holy sh*t. I think (*checks wikipedia*) Alexandre Dumas might be spinning in his grave. In 3D. Dodging steampunk bullets. To be fair, the shallow side of me that enjoys the occasional Michael Bay joint (*dodges tomato*) and actually liked the GI Joe movie (*dodges brick*) will probably watch this.
I know this makes me a hypocrite for bitching about Hollywood originality. But hey, at least they are actually going to a fun place with it, instead of, say, taking a fun little fable and making a joyless origin story out of it (*cough* Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood *cough*). Plus, it does have kind of a steampunk vibe, which is an aesthetic I enjoy. I would like to say that I wish it was in more movies, but then I remember Wild Wild West and keep my f*cking mouth shut about it.
