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

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.

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