Overview

The legendary Mexican hero returns to the screen in this swashbuckling sequel to the 1998 box-office hit The Mask of Zorro. It's 1850, and the people of California, eager to improve their difficult lot in life, have launched a campaign to become part of the United States. Don Alejandro de la Vega Antonio Banderas has become aware of a plot by moneyed Europeans to block the campaign for statehood through nefarious means, and it looks as if Alejandro's heroic alter ego, Zorro, may have to return to duty. However, Alejandro's wife, Elena Catherine Zeta-Jones, has grown weary of his secret life, and she demands that he choose between his family and his clandestine career as a champion of the people. This leads to a rift between Alejandro and Elena, and the couple separates, with Alejandro moving out while Elena continues to care for their son, Joaquin Adrian Alonso. A few months later, Alejandro finds that Elena is already being wooed by Armand Rufus Sewell, a suave French nobleman who wants her hand in marriage. However, Alejandro also learns that Armand is actually part of a plot to prevent California from attaining statehood by tampering with an upcoming election; meanwhile, there may be more to Elena's involvement with Armand than romantic courtship. Zorro must come to the rescue of the people of California and perhaps his beloved Elena as well before they both fall into dangerous hands. The Legend of Zorro was directed by Martin Campbell, who performed the same duties on The Mask of Zorro.

    Good action movie

    The prequel to this movie is better, with Anthony Hopkins as the original Zorro, where he finds Antonio Banderas and trains him to take his place. However, this movie isn't bad at all, if you're looking to escape into some adventure. Other reviews complain about historical inaccuracy, but if that's what you want then go watch a documentary. This is a movie, a Hollywood fantasy! It's just for some fun action, where the hero gets the bad guys and his son finally realizes his dad is the mighty Zorro. The son in this movie is also a kick, making the movie fun to watch too.

    poorly directed

    This movie could have been alot better. In this Zorro movie, I wouldn't have been surprised if he could have flown to the rescue. His character was too unhuman as far as what a person can do. Not really worth watching twice.

    The Family of Zorro

    After 8 yrs. we finally have another epee epic,still within tenure of Banderas as the swashing masked man by night and the swishing gentleman by day.We are treated to a whiplash of expertly crafted stunts,beautifully lensed set pieces,and steel-clashing swordplay.The poor Mexican proletariate are still harrassed by two-faced zealots who wish to exploit them until Zorro comes to their aid.Again, Banderas wears the mask of avenger to the hilt. Zeta-Jones returns as the raven-haired beauty that keeps Banderas' gloved hands full of bewilderment in learning to live with a very spirited and liberated senorita, and of course Anthony Hopkins is sorely missed. The core of the story(however somewhat historically flawed)is very similar to the Mummy Returns, in that we share another exploit of the adventure family triumvarate,right down to the heart-stopping train ride.Even so,there is more humor in this one as the trade offs come as strategically placed as the crack of a whip or the Z slash of a sword tip.Thankfully Campbell decided to change the ending so we can rest assured the dust has not settled on the sword-wielding masked man from Spanish California.

    Worthy sequel

    Though Anthony Hopkins is sorely missing from this sequel, it's still a really good movie. Lots and lots of action.

    Doesn't Anyone in Hollywood Know History?

    THE LEGEND OF ZORRO is mindless entertainment. If you don’t mind historical inaccuracies, you’ll be entertained. All the actors are fine, especially the main characters of Antonio Banderas as Zorro and Catherine Zeta-Jones as his spunky wife and partner, Elena. The action is wonderfully staged if you don’t wonder why they are fighting. As an intelligent person, who knows a little about American history, it was beyond me, why the writers, producers and director set the scene in 1850 California and yet kept talking about the Confederacy. The Civil War began in 1861. Yes, troubles were brewing in 1850 because of states rights and the admittance of states as slave or free, but no Confederates existed. Lincoln appears at the end of the movie, and no one heard of Lincoln in 1850. He wasn’t all that important in 1850. Other inaccuracies abound, like 19th century Roman Catholics getting a divorce at the drop of a mask. If you’re going to put history in movie as a motivation for the action, please make it as correct as possible. I’m sure most people won’t be disturbed by these historical mistakes, but the Civil War is a milestone in the history of a people and it is a depravity to trivialize it in such a fashion. Another idiocy was the comic antics of Zorro’s horse were they trying to make a Francis the Talking Mule picture? It was obvious, the fabricators of this flick were trying to make Zorro 9/11 but it just didn’t work. – Leslie Strang Akers

    I loved this movie!

    I saw this 3 times in the theaters. It was so cool! It had action, comedy, and romance. As good as the first one. Never a dull moment!
