4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but ..., 23 Feb. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Man In The Iron Mask [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
This is a brilliant movie, BUT not loyal to the book. If you expect to watch your favourite charatccters and story line brought to life (or rather picture) then you might be a little disappointed. The ending is opposite to that of the book, both in relation to the king and the musketeers. But other than that, the film is an absolute source of enjoyment.
This is a film that deals with love, honour, values, duty, treason, etc. You name it and the film deals with it. The characters are so alive and their pain truly hurts you and the joy vrings a smile to your face. I thinnk the true star of the fil is John Malkovish, who as Athos, has to learn to accept and eventually love the man, who is a clone (to be more precise twin) of the man who brought misery to his young son's life and put an abrupt end to it. Malkovich plays out this struggle so amazingly that at times it is unbelievable.
Unlike most Musketeer related movies, D'Artengan is not the centre of attention and it is as though, one window has been closed and surprisingly a larger one has been opened. You will see more of Honourable Athos, cunning Aramis and simple but brave and loyal Porhtos.
To end my comments, WATCH this film. It is fun, enjoyable, amazing and at times heart breaking.
