Leonardo DiCaprio's newest flick will be giving the young ladies a double dose of DiCaprio. The Man in the Iron Mask is the story of Louis the Fourteenth who ruled France cold-heartedly & even lustfully. He chased after any woman who seemed bed-worthy & discarded them like Charmin toilet-paper just the same. It was at a time after the Three Musketeers had dispanded. Aramis (Jeremy Irons) had become a priest, & Porthos(Gérard Depardieu) was just a "chick-chaser," if you will. Athos (John Malkovich) was taking care of a son who was going to be a musketeer, & the "fourth musketeer," D'Artagnan, was the head of the military. When King Louis caused Athos's son to die so he could have his fiance, Athos feels the king has gone too far, and this event, among others, sparks the reuniting of the 3 musketeers. Realizing that there is a man in an iron mask in prison, they rescue him from prison, in a plot to rid England of Louis. The man in the iron mask turns out to be Louis' twin brother, Phillipe who was imprisoned & covered with an iron mask because his likeness placed a threat on Louis' thrown- yet Philippe never knew this. The movie continues on from there with a series of events, including the attempt to replace Louis with Philippe. If your looking for a swash-buckling action/drama movie with a hint of romance. Check out this fine film-- directed by Robert Wallace, a devoted Christian.
This movie, was over-all very well-done. I have never seen any of the original versions of the movie, so i can't compare- but i think all the
actors & actresses did a fine job, despite what the critics do say. Again, the PG-13 rating was well-deserved. The sex scenes, & minor nudity, along with some innuendo, earned it this rating. It was also very violent- yet i must say it probably was not worse than Disney's Three Musketeers a couple years back (I did see it). I can't stand movie critics. Please allow me to go off on a tangent here... i always seem to like the movies they give lousy reviews, and they seem to praise the slimey, scummy lousy movies. I just don't get it. Well, anyway. I think i'll drop it. But this film was really good, despite the inappropriate material. And the language was pretty good, with only one "s" word used & about 2 other objectionable words. It was very violent but not all that bloody. Scenes with blood are so quick it's not bad at all. That was rather tastefully done. The acting was good, the plot was good, & I don't see any reason why the critics attacked the dialog. I thought it was all good & a very well-done action/drama.
