Buy it... if you have lingering affection for the 1990's Hans Zimmer/Media Ventures sound and seek Paul Haslinger's best attempt to resurrect it in true Trevor Rabin fashion.

Avoid it... if you can't handle the thought of Jack Sparrow and Batman becoming musketeers, because the derivative nature of this highly familiar score could drive you nuts.

The Three Musketeers: (Paul Haslinger) Financed with a substantial amount of support from various groups within Germany, Paul W. S. Anderson's 2011 resurrection of Alexandre Dumas' classic tale of 17th Century musketeers and their exploits in French and British political intrigue steers the concept into "steampunk" territory by including a secret invention of Leonardo Da Vinci as the centerpiece of its otherwise typical, character-centric plot. Betrayals and duels are once again the concentration of the story in The Three Musketeers, though fans of historical science fiction and alternate realities will appreciate the battle between Da Vinci's flying machines that attempt to alone justify the heavy advertising of the movie's 3D element. Despite the appeal of Orlando Bloom and Milla Jovovich, the latter a regular Anderson collaborator, in major roles, the movie didn't generate the positive buzz in younger crowds that the multitude of studios probably hoped for, its script often a target for ridicule. In the director's efforts to revise the concept for another generation, perhaps he forgot about similar aspirations made by the production of The Man in the Iron Mask in 1998, and nowhere is the overlap in focus more evident than in the music for 2011's The Three Musketeers. Anderson has rotated regularly through composing partners for his prior films, often with awful results (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil) or mundane orchestral efforts (Soldier, Alien vs. Predator). He has certainly established that he is not afraid to hire unconventional artists for these assignments, sometimes solo and at times in conjunction with an established composer, and in predictably unpredictable fashion for The Three Musketeers, he sought the services of Paul Haslinger. Although a veteran of film scores (notably in the Underworld franchise recently) and classically trained, Haslinger is best known as a sound designer specializing in industrial metal tones, a style that lends itself well to the darker corners of the fantasy genre. For The Three Musketeers, he branches out into a more classically inclined orchestral score, writing an uncharacteristically dynamic composition and recording it with a moderate ensemble in Germany. Accented with a few token cameos by solo strings, accordion, guitars, and harpsichord, these orchestral recordings were then layered with more typical Haslinger design techniques, lending a contemporary electronic feel to the finished mix.
