Both Zorro movies are seriously underrated on IMDB. I don’t know why. I liked both of them very much.
“The Legend of Zorro” is done in exactly the same spirit as “The Mask of Zorro”. Both Banderas and Zeta-Jones are in it. Lots of fights, lots of chases, lots of explosions. The good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s all there.
Even the drama is there. And, again, it is family related.
Anything wrong? Sure. Firstly, I missed Anthony Hopkins. I do remember that he died in the first part, but they could have at least edited him in. Just his voice makes the film so much better and I don’t see the reason why they didn’t put him in. Secondly, I had a minor irretation from the brain washing. At this point I am pretty fed up with all the “patriotic” and “American” stuff and this film had a tiny bit too much of it. Cut the crap! Put another fight if you have to.
Still, the film was very good. Don’t miss it on the big screen – you’ll enjoy it a bit extra!
