This film is probably the best sword fighting film I have seen with lots of action and a great story line. A film fact is that the guy who teachs the actors how to sword fence has done so many movies from robin hood, three muskateers and now zorro he is actually in his 70's. Basically the story involves De la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) who is the original Zorro in the movie and then after years of him being in jail he teaches alexandro(Antonio Bandaras) all his skills to continue his service to the people a master/apprentice type movie. A classic quote from the movie De la vega:"zorro was a servant of the people he did what was needed !" Alexandro "Yes and now he is needed agian". The acting is superb Anthony Hopkins(enough said), Antonio Bandaras plays the part of zorro reall swarve and calm and not forgeting the lovely Catherine Zeta Jones who has a spanish look about her and her accent is well done well suited to the part. The DVD sound and picture is superb quality and the special documentary is very interesting, it explains all the planning that is put into the movie from the staged sword fights to the backround scenary.

Remember all those old movies where the swashbuckling hero swoops down to the rescue and saves the day for one and all, defeating the enemies and getting the girl all within a few hours' entertainment? "The Mask of Zorro" is a testament to those movies, embodying all of these characteristics in its magnificent story and exhilarating action sequences. With a powerhouse cast that seems as if they were born to play the parts they play, as well as strong music and a solid story, Zorro once again rises from Hollywood deterioration to save the day in a movie that is good, old-fashioned fun from beginning to end!
The old Zorro legend is given a new twist with this film, which begins with Don Diego de la Vega, the original and legendary Zorro, saving a group of prisoners from execution in the town square and leaving his mark on his nemesis, Don Raphael, warning him to leave and never return. Raphael does leave, but not before killing de la Vega's wife and taking his child, also having him imprisoned. Many years later, Raphael returns, "daughter" in tow, to name himself the new governer and to make sure his past enemy is all but alive in his prison. Through extreme craftiness and cunning, de la Vega escapes, only to discover his life is no longer what it once was.
His venture into the public brings him to the attention of one Alejandro Murrieta, who quarrels with him in the marketplace and then resolves himself to friendship. The two do share a past: on the day of Zorro's last battle, Alejandro, along with his brother, saved him from death. Now, Alejandro is distraught and torn with revenge for Captain Harrison Love, the murderer of his brother, and agrees to take on the mask once worn by de la Vega, who in turn will teach him the art of fighting with honor and grace.

This movie follows a long and distinguished line of "Zorro" movies, which started with Douglas Fairbank's excellent silent sagas. Fortunately, "The Mask of Zorro" hasn't "screwed-up" the genre, and in my opinion, is the "crowning jewel" of the line.
It's a shame that many movie "reviewers" pooh-poohed Catharine Zeta-Jones' portrayal of the heroine "because she wasn't spanish". Explain, then, ANTHONY HOPKINS in the title role? he certainly isn't spanish, yet he did an EXCELLENT JOB as Zorro as did Ms. Zeta-Jones in her role. For the record, she makes this All-American Male's heart "go pitter-pat" whenever I view this movie. I certainly hope her future movie roles are as good as the one in this movie.
Anthony Banderas portrayal of a "redeemed" bad guy was EXCELLENT! I especially enjoyed his homage to Fairbank's Zorro in his "acting job" at the bad guys' banquet table (complaining about "being tired", etc.). He also has good comedic range and expressiveness. Many of todays 'actors" could learn something from this young newcomer!
The soundtrack is TOP-NOTCH! I remember my wife remarking how she "heard things" on my Home Theater system that she missed in the theater. My hat's off to the sound crew for an excellent job!
In conclusion, this movie is a WELCOME RELIEF from the usual mindless dreck currently produced in Hollywood these days. My whole family, including my pre-teen children, thoroughly enjoy this movie, and I would not hesitate to recommend it for "general family fare".
By the way: the GOOD GUYS win, just like they always used to do....

Sometimes, movies are not meant to be thoughtful, deep, or insightful. Sometimes, they're just made to entertain, and MASK OF ZORRO delivers that entertainment in spades!!! Set in the days of Spanish California, this flick tells the tale of Don Diego Vega (Anthony Hopkins), who was the original Zorro. In a plot very much like the classic "Count of Monte Cristo", Diego is suprised by his foe, Governor Montero. He sees his wife killed, baby daughter kidnapped, and is doomed to spent life in prison. 20 years later, Diego escapes to wreak his revenge, but is halted when he learns that Montero has adopted his daughter (the beautiful and spirited Catherine Zeta-Jones). Diego recruits another vengeful soul (Antonio Banderas), who has lost his brother to Montero's henchman, Capt. Love. Diego's attempt to make his new protege the next Zorro is main focus of the plot. Told in a fast paced & fun style, this film has everything for the action film fan: great sword fighting, passionate romance, and a health dose of wit & warmth. All 3 leads are splendid and this film is well worth your time. Highly recommended.
