A lad jousting with his tutor is kidnaped and carried to the Bastille where his head is locked in an iron mask. Jump ten years: Musketeers return from war in Morocco to find Paris starving while Louis XIV and his retinue idle at Duke Fouquet's estate. Louis is enamored with his host's virginal daughter, Valliere, herself in love with Athos. The queen mother calls the Jesuit Aramis to her deathbed to confess that Louis has a twin, "a second born, he was first conceived, the oldest and true heir," the man in the iron mask. Aramis secures his release and hides him while Porthos and Athos school him for his destiny. D'Artagnan remains loyal to Louis: love, schemes and politics entwine. Written by
Of all of the Muskateer, Man in the Iron Mask movies that I have seen, this version is the worst. It has very slow moving partaking of the characters participation in this movie. Very little action and the action that is in this movie leaves very little excitement. The actors/actresses in this movie act as if they are reading from a card instead of memory. And the costumes in this movie as way out of date, infact, it seems as if the costume designer cannot figure out what century this movie takes place in. Even the wigs worn by the charactors look rediculas and out of style. I was very dissapointed in this film and I give it a 2.
