Despite a good performance from Johnny Depp as a young man who claims to be the legendary lover, this is a film which doesn't quite work as well as it could have.
Partly a spoof of old-fashioned swashbuckler movies, it gets bogged down with psycho-babble as Marlon Brando's psychiatrist examines the cape-adorned, mask-wearing young man.
Die-hard fans of Johnny Depp will enjoy it more than others, who'll find Bryan Adams theme song ("Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman") the most entertaining thing about it.
