...this version of The Man in the Iron Mask owes more to Star Wars than Star Wars owes to Dumas.

The Man in the Iron Mask needed more of a jaunty twinkle, more wolfish grins, less thinking and more doing.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Though a fine actor, DiCaprio is no Errol Flynn. With his choirboy face and chess-club physique, he is scarcely fit to play swashbuckling hero or villain.

Unless you have a thing for DiCaprio, you're better off renting any of the other adaptations.

Alongside previous men in the iron mask, the '98 contender doesn't amount to much.
