Plot: A young thief, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, is trained by the once great, but aged Zorro, who also pursues vengeance of his own. Runtime: 136 mins Release Date: 17 Jul 1998
Wonderful movie, visually rich and a nice blend of comedy, action and romance, well-written. Hopkins is great; so is Banderas as Zorro-in-training, and Zeta-Jones sparkles in her scenes with him. Very little gore or skin, what there is serves the plot instead of BEING the plot. The best movie I've seen in a long time. Note: previews make it look a lot less interesting than it actually is--you just see a lot of things being slashed and blown up, while the comic scenes between Hopkins and Banderas don't really appear the best part of the film .
It belongs to the Top #250. (by Dr_Sagan)
This is a truly wonderful movie. In my opinion it belongs with the Classics.What is a classic anyway? Something with timeless quality. And this movie has it.Just saw this movie again for the 3rd or 4th time since it came out. I remembered almost every scene and still sat to watch it again. To see the great photography, to hear the inspirational music, to admire and have fun with the excellent performances of all actors, leading and supporting.This movie has it all. It revives one of the more influential characters of all time, with the most appropriate way. You get a dramatic, even tragic, <more>
plot, and simultaneously a fun script. Emotion and comedy at the same time. Great visuals and scenery and also good action.In my opinion this a highly underrated movie 6.7 for 2013 doesn't give it justice at all and it belongs among the best. For the friend who gave a low rating a note: Not all the dramas have to be edgy and dark.Overall: Highly recommended
The New Mask of Zorro Topped the Old Classic Zorro ! (by whpratt1)
Always enjoyed the classic "Mark of Zorro" original in the 40's, however, Anthony Hopkins Don Diego/Zorro , "Meet Joe Black",'98 gave an outstanding performance through out the entire picture and taught the new Zorro all the tricks of the trade with the dueling and sword swinging, almost looked like Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.in action! Catherine Zeta-Jones, Elana "Chicago",'02 performed a very torrid Spanish dance and was extremely HOT during the entire picture. Elana almost lost her underwear with the swift blades of the newly taught young ZORRO <more>
introduced in this film. This is a very refreshing new approach to the Zorro image and is a must see film !
This movie had just a couple of things I would have changed but the overwhelming minutes of this 137-minute movie were well done: a nice old- fashioned adventure story.Yes, it's hokey in spots, there is a needless irreverent scene in the confessional and the final action scene goes on too long, but all of that is almost standard fare in today's films. Anyway, the "good" in this film far outweighs the "bad."Some of the "good" is beautiful cinematography featuring bold colors; good action scenes; very little profanity; interesting and somewhat likable lead <more>
characters played by Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Bandaras and Catherine Zeta- Jones , a fun story and very good 5.1surround sound.Zeta-Jones was a brand new "face" with this movie and she's never looked better. Hopkins, as usual, is the best character as the older "Zorro" who teaches the young one Bandaras . Some of the action scenes are almost cartoon-like in credibility Bandaras doing flips while riding two horses at once! but they are fun.The story is a familiar one that seems to always satisfy people: revenge.
Greetings from Lithuania."The Mask of Zorro" 1998 is a superb entertainment, a real crowd pleaser. Made with energy, with and superb performances all over around it's a great flick from start till finish. Like many great revenge stories, this one has everything - a progressing hero, a wonderful central character and so on.Overall, a very solid 8/10 for "The Mask of Zorro" - it's a real entertainment, and you don't have to be a Zorro specialist to truly appreciate this picture, the story is quite simple, but very engaging, acting is the best that could be in <more>
this material. Definitely check this flick if you didn't upon it's release.
Let's get this straight - Batman Begins currently sits at 8.4 on IMDb, but this is less than 7. What? No. These kind of inconsistencies are a reflection of how dumb the masses really are.This film is infinitely better written and directed and acted than the Batman films. The script is clever and interesting, the humour is spot on didn't even exist in Batman Begins , you can suspend disbelief to the action and really enjoy it unlike most films these days with thousands of half-second edits and a melee of mess , there's a proper villain actually two , and the story makes bloody <more>
sense.The characters are all well developed and the pacing is perfect. You see, here's the thing, dumb masses: We need characters we can understand and care about in order to care about the film. If this film went the Batman way and just had fast scene after fast scene with a rushed narrative, no-one would care and it would just be another dumb action movie.Clearly The Mask of Zorro loses out because it doesn't have the marketing muscle and brand name of "Batman".My rating: 4/5
Zorro is one of my favorite heroes. He looks quite cool and not stupid, weird or childish like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and all of their villains except The Joker and he has no superpowers like them, although sometimes it seems that gravity does not really apply to him. His weapon of choice guarantees some spectacular sword fighting scenes as well.With this hero all you need is a nice story and 'The Mask of Zorro' has a nice story. I will be short about it. Don Diego de la Vega Anthony Hopkins was Zorro but is too old now. He needs another one and Alejandro Murrieta Antonia <more>
Banderas is the chosen one. Their enemy is Don Rafael Stuart Wilson . His daughter Elena Catherine Zeta-Jones is actually Diego's daughter. His wife was murdered and his daughter was taken by Rafael a long time ago. Rafael also made sure the brother of Alejandro was killed by his helper Capt. Love Matt Letscher . And now he has an evil plan that will kill a lot of people. Time for the new Zorro.It sounds a little simple and may be it is, but for a movie like this it is a perfect story. Anthony Hopkins who is never bad does not disappoint us here, Banderas has the right charm to play Zorro, Zeta-Jones is absolutely stunning and Wilson and Letscher are very good as the villains. With some nice action sequences and a pretty good soundtrack this is a very entertaining movie.
Martin Campbell sure knows how to make entertaining movies. After making "No Escape" and "GoldenEye" he brings us yet another entertaining movie; "The Mask of Zorro". He actually used to be one of my favorite directors after seeing those movies I just named but unfortunately he hasn't made anything good lately. Let's hope this change after completing "Zorro 2" that is currently being made."The Mask of Zorro" is just some good old fashioned fun with lot's of spectacular moments, good choreographed fight sequences, a love story and a <more>
good old fashioned stereotype villain.The story is told in a good way which I think is mainly thanks to Campbell's directing. The pace is high and the combination between the action, the characters and their relations, romance and some of the comical moments is done very well, unlike some other movies from the same genre.There is some nice cinematography that help to create a good atmosphere along with the musical score from James Horner. The end fight is good and it has a spectacular big explosion in it that'll make you go; Wow!Great entertainment for the whole family.8/10http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/
Explosive,thought out hollywood adventure. (by davideo-2)
The best thing about this movie is the casting.How ingenius,eh? Antonio Banderas as Zorro,eh?And Stuart Wilson as the central villain.This guy is one of the most unrecognised talents around.As a snidy British baddie,he could easily give your average Dennis Hopper a run for his money.Catherine Zeta Jones is also marvellous as the love interest. The action scenes and stunts are fantastic.Real hollywood at it's best.Martin Campbell keeps an efficent and steady pace to proceedings as director. If there's a problem here,it's that it's probably a tad overlong.But luckily,this <more>
unwantern time is'nt filled with unnecessary scenes but scenes as visually exciting as the last. It's also marvellous that it's a PG,because such past fare,like Bad Boys,is loud,action packed,exciting and brilliant,it's also rather flatulent and rude.This is just superb action entertainment which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
