The Man in the Iron Mask


The Man in the Iron Mask

Critics Consensus

Leonardo DiCaprio plays dual roles with diminishing returns in The Man in the Iron Mask, a cheesy rendition of the Musketeers' epilogue that bears all the pageantry of Alexandre Dumas' text, but none of its romantic panache.

Audience Reviews for The Man in the Iron Mask

  • Dec 09, 2013
    "One for all, all for one." The legend of the Three Musketeers continues in Randall Wallace's The Man in the Iron Mask. With France on the brink of revolution Aramis, Athos, and Porthos reunite to replace the king by restoring the birth right of his twin brother, who's been secretly exiled. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, and Gabriel Byrne, the casting is especially strong. However, the performances are fairly mediocre, and the dialog is pretty cheesy. Still, the fight sequences are shot quite well and bring a lot of energy and excitement to the film. Additionally, the score and set designs help create an epic feel. The Man in the Iron Mask has some flaws, but delivers a thrilling adventure.

    It may not rank among the best, but still it's good

    Randal Wallace was a much better writer than director. Granted, this was his first film, but one would expect and hope a 3 Musketeers film to have more...punch.

    Decent, feels a little long and some shows do not shine but you can enjoy it.
