Cool Musketeers!

by bb on 5/24/1999

Interesting story although part of the plot is weak. Stylish costumes fit the play. Musketeers fight very well.

Editors Note
Note With a cry of "All for one and one for all!" the Musketeers return to correct the injustices perpetrated by spoiled monarch Louis XIV, whose misdeeds include imprisoning his twin brother on an island and encasing his visage in the titular mask. Teen idol DiCaprio assays the dual title role, while writer-director Randall Wallace goes for the jugular with plenty of pomp and pageantry.
Sight and Sound "...A gleefully tongue-in-cheek romp....Stylishly photographed..." 04/01/1998 p.42
USA Today "...Richly staged period adventure..." 04/24/1998 p.6E
New York Times "...[DiCaprio] rivets attention in practically every scene. With captivating ingenuousness, and with a physical beauty that reduces the camera to one more worshipful fan, he fares well..." 03/13/1998 p.E14
Premiere "...Boasting the highest talent quotient of any of the previous versions....This offers a more cerebral take on the classic swashbuckler..." 03/01/1998 p.17

Review ...DiCaprio fills Louis' high heels rather well. His French accent comes and goes faster than a train in the Paris Metro, but he pulls off the dual role with relish... That aside, there is plenty of swashing and buckling here, and the real treats are the actors playing the musketeers. There are a number of twists and turns in the plot that keep the story somewhat fresh. But the best device is the portrayal of the musketeers as aging warriors, who summon their old idealism to aid God and country one more time...
