The Man in the Iron Mask Reviews

    Another adaptation of another Dumas work. Honestly, I didn't even know till recently that this movie was a "Three Musketeers" story. For this particular iteration (a somber epilogue to the famed story), it is a lot more serious-minded and there isn't much action to enjoy. But surprisingly, the film makes up for that because the drama itself is fairly engaging and well-developed. The main cast may be speaking with their natural accents to a distracting degree (British, French and American, you name it!) but each actor is mostly well-cast and gives a good effort. The sets and costumes look naturally lavish but when it comes the action scenes, they look rather clumsy and cheap. All things considered, this probably my favorite "Musketeers"-related movie thus far and I'd recommend it for its good dramatic moments, intrigue and nimble performances; despite its lack of swashbuckling excitement. Its not amazing but it shouldn't be so easily dismissed - 7/10 (B)

    An adventure with intrigue this drama is not one of best adaptations of the three musketeers but it's better than it's reputation.

    Great movie. Let yourself enjoy it, without any political influences, and you'll find this to be a masterpiece.

    A fun and memorable rendition, with great performances from Gabriel Byrne, Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich.

    Let me tell you a story about beezlebub, once upon a time I too was removed from society. But that is a different one. There is a place where people removed from society go. It is the Ark of the Convenant. They are from a place of friendless nobility. The mask of hate is worn to build from the bottom of the feet back to the crown. Ahhh Leonardo.. What dirty secrets they have. GOD IS COMING
