The musketeer. United States-Germany-Luxembourg, 2001 (95 minutes). Director: Peter Hyams. Cast: Justin Chambers, Catherine Deneuve.
In his tenth directorial effort, Peter Hyams (zero atmosphere) combined classic elements of cape-and-dagger cinema with the spectacular choreography of the films made in Hong Kong, and shamelessly married commercial cinema to make this new remake of the Dumas classic. Passable, although far from the best versions.

‘hearts of steel’
fury. United States, 2014 (128 minutes). Director: David Ayer. Cast: Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf.
The harsh and claustrophobic story of five soldiers who, stuck in a tank, advance towards the heart of Nazi Germany, serves as the basis for this effective installment based on the classic foundations of World War II cinema.
