Louis XIII, King of France, had a son, Louis, who succeeded his father to the throne. But, known to very few, the heir had a twin brother, Philippe, hidden away after birth and forced to languish in prison, his identity unknown behind an iron mask. His brother, now grown and King Louis XIV, proved to be both corrupt and a tyrant. Louis sends Athos' son, Raoul off to certain death in war, so that he could have his woman for himself. Athos, together with two of the other Musketeers, Porthos and Aramis, swear revenge. Only D'Artagnan remains loyal to the crown, but will he join his former compatriots to free Philippe from prison, kill the king, and put Philippe on the throne in his place?
INCREDIBLE film and great acting
amazing story, and Leo does a FANTASTIC job portraying the king and his total opposite, his twin. Leonardo DiCaprio is absolutely brilliant, as always, and the other acting roles are also good and interesting to watch. the story line moves fast, and draws you in instantly. GET IT.
This movie is indescribably fantastic! Everyone who loves historical dramas and philosophical movies should definitely see this! The cast is remarkable! Only Leonardo DiCaprio could play two characters with completeley opposite personalities side by side and do such and incredible job with it. This movie talks about the unbreakable bonds between friends and family and the obvious and non-obvious differences between good and evil! Don't expect to see a chick flick, becuase this movie is really deep. But DEFINITELY see it! I promise you, you will be blown away!
An awesome classic.
