Matylda Swan It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties.
Scarlet The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
blrnani ... because it goes for too many weak gags, but still fun entertainment. CZJ is as stunning as ever, as well as a kick-ass heroine in her own right, and Rufus Sewell makes a fairly convincing villain (tho' I prefer him in his positive leading roles), while Adrián Alonso is very cute. Unfortunately, Antônio Banderas and, particularly, his horse, are the roles where the film overdoes the silly gags. And that doesn't sit well with the tragic bits.
Davis P The legend of Zorro (2005) is a very fun action packed sequel to 1998's the mask of zorro. It stars Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta Jones and Rufus Sewell. Of course Banderas and Zeta-Jones play Zorro and Elena, now married with a son about 9 or 10 years old. The movies plot starts to picks up when Elena is confronted by two men who want to hire her to go undercover as Rufus Sewell's girlfriend in order to find out what he's up to. The acting in the film is good, I really enjoyed Catherine and Antonio's performances, they go from lovers to hating to joining together to save their son, stop Sewell, and kick some ass in the meantime. Speaking of ass kicking, the fighting and the action sequences are very well done, they aren't terribly rough or bloody but they are very intense and all over the place. And let me just say that I personally think that Catherine Zeta Jones can kick some villain ass a lot better than Antonio Banderas lol, get it girl. That's another good thing about the film, strong female empowerment and good examples of a woman taking charge and fighting for herself. It also shows good family love, so it's for sure a good pick for a family to view with children in late elementary or middle school. Like I said, the action is good, the acting is well done, and the sets and technical side of the movie is all done well. 8/10.
Fluke_Skywalker Everything 'The Mask of Zorro' did so perfectly the sequel screws up and then some. The original remains a thrilling and sexy swashbuckler that no film in its genre--not even the first 'Pirates of the Caribbean'--has matched.The sequel on the other hand is contrived, dumbed down, and worst of all, dull. It's an eye-rollingly juvenile movie that will have you sighing in frustration from the moment it begins.I think I may have to go and re-watch 'The Mask of Zorro' now just to get the taste out of my mouth. Not that I need an excuse to watch it. It's a classic.
elganeo Why are people bringing up history? OK, I'm British, and yeah the Civil War was about 10 years after this, but it's FICTION! No-one complained when Titanic came out, or did you all think that the love story really happened? It's a movie, it's allowed to bend history! It's FICTION. Steam engines can't really talk, and neither can purple dinosaurs magically grow or communicate! But I really liked it and I prefer it to the first one, probably because I saw this one first.... I thought the plot was excellent, what with Elena being a spy and complex things like that. So well thought out it was confusing at first. Their son was a good actor too. And the Frenchman was a good addition. But the bottom line is that it's fictional, but still operating around real events, regardless of the time period, because it's FICTION. If it was based on a true story, then I understand your argument. Not that I don't in the first place.
