Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Man in the Iron Mask needed more of a jaunty twinkle, more wolfish grins, less thinking and more doing."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Though a fine actor, DiCaprio is no Errol Flynn. With his choirboy face and chess-club physique, he is scarcely fit to play swashbuckling hero or villain."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Para sorte de Randall Wallace, o material com que ele trabalhava era bom demais para ser estragado. Alexandre Dumas salvou o filme."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Unless you have a thing for DiCaprio, you're better off renting any of the other adaptations."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Features acting which is beyond reproach."
‑ Andrew Howe, Film Written Magazine
"Leonardo DiCaprio times two. What more could you want? Perhaps more thrilling swash and buckle."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Reveals how important it is in middle age to keep one's spiritual ideals alive and shining."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"One big advantage this film has -- now brace yourselves -- some of the actors actually speak with French accents!"
‑ Widgett Walls,
"a well-made adventure film that doesn't have much adventure"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"...this version of The Man in the Iron Mask owes more to Star Wars than Star Wars owes to Dumas."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"A laughably flimsy remake of a frequently told adventure."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Alongside previous men in the iron mask, the '98 contender doesn't amount to much."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"Verges on unconscious parody."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
