The Man in the Iron Mask | 1998 | PG-13 | - 4.5.3

The Musketeers attempt to overthrow their tyrannical king (Leonardo DiCaprio) and install his twin brother (also DiCaprio) who is imprisoned.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man's naked buttocks are seen four times. A couple of scenes with a naked couple in bed obviously after sex but no nudity is seen. A couple of scenes where moaning and sexual noises are heard (in one we see movement under hay and then one man and three women come out from the stack). We see a bit of the side of a woman's breast while a couple lies in bed. A man starts to undress a woman. Several scantily clad women and some kissing (once with a naked couple lying in bed pre-sex, although no nudity is seen). Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Rioting, chases, scuffles and people are beaten by a crowd. A sword skewers a man and then he's stabbed with a spot of blood. There are several sword fights and stabbings, although not with much blood. Sometimes people die as a result (blood is seen on knives and swords). We see blood on a man's chest, a sword is pulled out of a man's chest, a throat is slit (with blood), a cheek is split (with blood), and we see blood coming out of a victim's mouth. There are stabbings in the stomach and a man is stabbed in the back and killed. A man is killed by cannon fire. Sometimes people are shot at. People are beaten with objects in a few scenes. A man tries to hang himself. A man is thrown into a stone wall and water. A couple of fistfights with punching, throwing each other around, etc. A man is choked. Skeletons are seen in a tomb and a dead, hanging corpse. Diseased and shackled prisoners are seen. A disfigured ear. A few face slaps, some face punches, lots of threatening with knives and swords. Some threatening with guns.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
