A. very astute friend told me this was Leonardo Di Caprio's best performance. Hmm. If so, I understand better why I am not a big fan. Never-the-less, the action is good and the supporting cast of Jeremy Irons, Gabriel Byrne, John Malkovich and Gerard Depardieu fantastic. In this telling, Louis XIV, later known as the Sun King who reigned longer than an European Monarch and was succeeded by his great grandson, has imprisoned his identical twin brother in a dungeon with an iron mask. However, this Louis XIV is a despot bent on his own pleasure. Di Caprio plays both brothers and still has that fresh 1998 look about him. The scenery is nice as are the costumes. The aging Musketeers are actually a hoot-especially Depardieu. Worth a watch. The flat American accent of Di Caprio is a bit annoying but Byrne's accent not a problem. Oh well, watch it. The guy in your life will probably like it!
