The Legend Zorro
If you enjoy explosions, sword fights and run-away trains you will want to see the family film The Legend of Zorro. It has been 10 years since Zorro played by Antonio Banderas began wearing the mask and now he and his wife played by Catherine Zeta-Jones have a 10 year old son. California is about to join the United States but a secret society is stealing land to build a railroad and Zorro is needed to save the people. This second Zorro film works because of the performances and the chemistry between the two lead characters. It’s full of fancy stunts and quick action but at over 2 hours it needed at least 20 minutes edited out. Unlike the first Zorro this one has the rating watered down for kids. We now have sword fights where no one is killed and a horse that does everything but talk. (Even Mr. Ed didn’t smoke a pipe and drink whiskey.) I’m giving this swashbuckling adventure film a B – rating.
This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
