view all

The dashing masked swordsman, who first made an appearance in a 1919 newspaper comic, returns to the big screen. Aging Zorro (Hopkins) escapes from 20 years in prison when he discovers his mortal enemy Montero (Wilson) is looking to establish an independent republic of California. But he needs some help and picks bandit Alejandro (Banderas), who needs a lot of training. Caught in the middle is Elena (Zeta Jones), a spirited beauty who was raised by Montero (Wilson) and doesn't know she's really Zorro's daughter. She wields quite a mean sword herself as Alejandro learns before any romancing can begin. A little long but offering swashbuckling fun.

I remember when I was younger, the television series of the Mask of Zorro would always come on the Disney channel at night time. I never really got into the television series. But when the movie of The Mask of Zorro came out, I didn't think I was going to care much for the movie. I was wrong. The movie is really good. It's fun and entertaining. The movie is a bit long. It's a little over two hours but it doesn't seem like it. I didn't get bored watching it. It's an enjoyable movie. I think you'll enjoy it, if your into heroic, fun, entertaining movies.

I remember when the television show of the Mask of Zorro was always played on the Disney channel at night. I was in elementary school at that time. I never really got into the television series but when the movie of the Mask of Zorro came out, I really enjoyed it. It was full of action, with a bit of comedy. Just my kind of movie. The movie is somewhat long. I believe a little over two hours. Don't worry though, because this is the type of movie you won't get bored watching. So, you should watch this movie if your in the mood for a entertaining heroic movie.
