(9-Great Film)

Thrilling. Fun. Adept.

Don Diego (Hopkins), the once proud vigilante for the people known as Zorro, has been imprisoned for twenty years. His wife murdered. His daughter raised by his mortal enemy. Diego sees his opportunity for revenge in the younger Alejandro (Banderas), himself eager for revenge on the man who killed his brother, and so the two train and plot together, behind the mask. Top-notch swashbuckler. Anthony Hopkins, though doing little to mask his Britishness, is charm personified, and Banderas and Jones are en fuego together. No CGI, just outstanding stunt work and choreography to bolster an excellent revenge story.
