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

Leonardo DiCaprio times two. What more could you want? Perhaps more thrilling swash and buckle.

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.

Reveals how important it is in middle age to keep one's spiritual ideals alive and shining.

Para sorte de Randall Wallace, o material com que ele trabalhava era bom demais para ser estragado. Alexandre Dumas salvou o filme.

One big advantage this film has -- now brace yourselves -- some of the actors actually speak with French accents!

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