Chaos and the Three Musketeers

As a long time fan of the novel (I was reading the dang book when it was actually bigger than me. It's ridiculous.) the early comparisons of CHAOS to an updated The Three Musketeers tale was a major contributing factor to my tuning in to the show.  So, go figure, when the movie The Three Musketeers came out this weekend, I HAD TO GO SEE IT.  And I did.  And I honestly, surprisingly, was not disappointed.  I kinda love that movie as a reboot. 

But I kept having CHAOS flashbacks.  Major flashbacks.  There are such similarities to the way the movie handled the characters' personalities and the way CHAOS did.  The stories were obviously different, the settings handled differently, but there were still similarities in other aspects.

So... Did anyone else see the movie?  Anybody else have opinions on the movie compared to the show?  Am I totally alone in my addiction to CHAOS that I'm seeing stuff Rick did/said in the stuff that came from the movie's little pipsqueak D'Artagnan? 


Also, on the show, Rick totally should have challenged Michael and Billy to a duel.  (Not so much Casey tho, 'cause he woulda had his ass handed to him.)



(As soon as I can get my hands on digital copies of the movie,--January?-- I am SO MAKING A COMPARISON VID!!! )

love the idea of a comparison vid.

Haven't seen the movie myself, but will in due course. Who can resist Orlando Bloom as a baddy!! and they've totally steampunked the story, another irresistible combination!!

I saw the movie and totally did not think of that until you mentioned it. You're right! There are so many similarities between the two, but at the same time they are totally different storylines.
