All for none...

The new ‘Musketeers’ gets mockbustered.

Never to let a Hollywood blockbuster go un-ripped off, The Asylum is at it again. After attempting (and probably at time succeeding) to fool DVD renters with “Transmorphers” (not “Transformers”), “Paranormal Entity” (not “Paranormal Activity”) and “Battle of Los Angeles” (not “Battle: Los Angeles”), those mockbuster folks get ready to carve themselves a piece of that swordsman pie.

With “Resident Evil” director Paul W.S. Anderson’s action-amped but period-appropriate remake of “The Three Musketeers” hitting theaters Oct. 21, The Asylum Home Entertainment responds with “3 Musketeers” on Oct. 25.

But, oh, how to tell them apart? The expensive one stars Orlando Bloom, Milla Jovovich and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz; The Asylum one stars (apologies to the word “stars”) Alan Rachins, David Chokachi and someone or something named XIN.

Here’s your official plot synopsis: “Alexandra D'Artagnan, junior NSA officer, uncovers a plot to assasinate (sic) the President of the United States and enlists the help of three infamous international spies to stop the threat.” No trailer yet, but you’ve been warned. —Rod Lott

Resident Evil: Retribution

‘Evil’ dead.


Action

Rod Lott
Fifth in the increasingly slick but decreasingly lucid franchise, Resident Evil: Retribution had potential to be the best entry since the 2002 original. After all, returning director Paul W.S. Anderson (The Three Musketeers) has positioned so many elements from the previous films that it seemed set up to play like a greatest-hits package. Instead, the result is baffling.
