      ‘The man in the iron mask’ is an English film directed by Randall Wallace. LeonardoDicaprio is the main actor and he has acted well. This film has run successful and is a good movie to watch. In this film, we go to France. France is ruled by king Louis XIV. Leonardo has played the role of king Louis XIV. Louis XIV fights many battles and these battles become the cause of the economic problems in France. France becomes financially

      weaker. There is a riot which is started by the poor farmers. And the king Louis XIV is so inconsiderate about it that he sends them food which is rotten. This shows the utter callousness of the king. Louis XIV lives a luxurious life.

      Now there are four people, Aramis, Porthos, Athos and Raoul. Louis XIV gets very attracted by Christine, the lover of Raoul. He wishes Christine for himself. But Raoul is in the way of his desire. So the king decides that Raoul has to be killed in order to make Christine his. There is no other way. Somehow, he manages Raoul to be killed. Aramis is very angry about this. He comes to know that the king is behind the murder of Raoul. So he plots to somehow overthrow this wicked king. And Porthos and Athos, his comrades agree to help him. Then they come across the man in the iron mask. His name is Phillipe ...

      and he is the twin brother of Louis XIV. Thus he looks exactly like the king. Leonardo has played the role of Phillipe also. Aramis says that Phillipe has to replace Louis XIV and Phillipe agrees to this plan.

      The rest of the movie is interesting. Do they succeed in overthrowing king Louis XIV? What role does Phillipe, the man in the iron mask , play? This is a very nice movie, one of the most interesting. The actors have

      done well, especially Leonardo. The rest of the actors like John, Jeremy, Gabriel etc.. have also acted well.

      One thing that struck me most was the character of the king Louis XIV. Instead of working for the welfare of his subjects, he has become a curse to them. No wonder he become the cause of a riot. And no wonder the three friends decide to overthrow him. I recommend this movie and rate it 8 points out of 10.
