In a time where Hollywood seems content to produce often unoriginal and shallow films mostly to turn a profit, the film The Legend of Zorro manages to rise above the rest by adding another adjective to the mix; unnecessary. The film (a sequel to the 1998 The Mask of Zorro) reprises Antonio Banderas' role as Zorro and Catherine Zeta Jones' role as his wife. Added to their mix is their 10 year old child, Joaquin, played by newcomer Adrian Alonso. Now many years later, the family is settled near San Francisco with Banderas attempting to refrain from his Zorro ways. However, when the entire United States is threatened by a secret organization led by Armand (Rufus Sewell), Zorro is forced back into service. Full movie review »
