Long in the tooth and unfocused and wastes its bang up cast.

As aging musketeers, Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu and Gabriel Byrne-each sporting a different accent-all look faintly embarrassed, like serious actors stuck performing at a kids' birthday party.

It's an irresistible story, but the movie suffers from clunky dialogue and a barrage of mismatched performances that represent just about every school of acting known to man.

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.

A laughably flimsy remake of a frequently told adventure.

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

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