Storyline

The original Zorro, Don Diego de la Vega, is captured and imprisoned just as Spain concedes California to Santa Anna. 20 years go by and his mortal enemy, Don Rafael Montero, returns to California with a plan to become wealthy at the expense of the peasants. The original Zorro escapes from prison and trains a new Zorro to take his place. Much swashbuckling and derring-do ensues. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Trivia

The mask Alejandro puts on, just before he steals the horse, was made from the same scarf he had earlier unwrapped from the horse's front leg. See more »

Goofs

When Don Rafael Montero shows a gold bar to the other Dons, he holds it only with two fingers and shows no signs that it's heavy. A gold bar this size would be much too heavy for anyone to hold like that. See more »

Zorro for a new generation.
1 December 1998 | by Peach-2See all my reviews

I just finished watching The Mask Of Zorro, and it was a spectacular achievement. It all seemed cliched at first, and even though it isn't that original, it still pays off quit well. The cast is great. Anthony Hopkins seems to get away with an English accent in every movie he does,but his acting was solid as usual. Antonio Banderas is teriffic as the new Zorro and there's funny moments between Hopkins and Banderas as teacher and student respectively. Catherine Zeta-Jones is very appealing in her role also. The only real complaint I have is that the bad guys never seem like a real threat. The direction by Martin Campbell is very good and the editing was great. A very good movie.
