The Mask of Zorro Audience Reviews

Wordiezett So much average
WasAnnon Slow pace in the most part of the movie.
Console best movie i've ever seen.
Ginger Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
AlanWelat When I was a kid back in the days it was good today is more like nostalgia movie.
sapphire-33045 I love this movie and have ever since I first saw it. While I know there are more critically acclaimed movies out there and movies with Oscars to back up their greatness,there is just something about this movie. I've wasted more times than I can count. There is humor, action, and romance. In addition to the story of one man finding his place in the world and another on a mission to reunite with the family he lost while looking to pass on his mantle to someone. I love this movie, it very entertaining and brings me joy every time I watch it.
Nicolas F. Costoglou This is one of the most flawless, romantic, adventure stories ever put on film.Martin Campbell did everything right with this film (well this time...we don't talk about "The Legend of Zorro" here...).It's incredibly well made, the cinematography is fantastic, the soundtrack by James Horner is very fitting and great as always and all the actors giving top performances.The action sequences are exceptionally great, we know from Campbells Bond-movies that he does a good job, but this movie does way more than that. It's fast and energetic, all stunts are real and nothings covered through fast editing or anything. Also the romance is great, because both characters are strong and likable.And this movie is much darker and dramatic then most of the movies which came out recently (*cough* Rogue one *cough*), but also lighthearted enough to never feel depressing, but entertaining as hell.This is my favourite Martin Campbell movie, and these are my favourite performances by Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins to date.If you like classic movies with romance, drama, adventure and great training montages, then this is the film for you...
Anssi Vartiainen Many a movie has been made about Zorro, but nowadays this is probably, if not the most well-known, then at least very close. And for a good reason. It's a great movie that introduces the legendary character to new audiences while also pleasing those that are already familiar with him. It's entertaining, full of great action scenes as well as great characters, has a plot that's just perfect for a summer blockbuster and has a good cast of actors to pull it all off.And while I do think that the plot is just simple enough for a blockbuster adventure swashbuckler film such as this one, I do enjoy its subtle touches. Like the fact that our Zorro this time around is the fictional brother of a real-life Mexican outlaw Joaquín Murrieta or that he is opposed by Harrison Love, who's based on a real-life army man named Harry Love. And the very real conflict between Mexico, California and United States works as the background of it all.The film is also very good at building mythos. The very fact that the original Zorro has grown old and is forced to train a replacement for himself is a great plot hook that allows the film to distance itself from the original stories and build a storyline of its own, while still also giving as all the traditional Zorro moments that we love. Anthony Hopkins plays Diego de la Vega, and while it is a bit distracting whenever he's forced to play the younger Zorro in flashbacks, he is very good as an aged nobleman turned outlaw.Likewise, Antonia Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones shine as the protagonist and his love interest. Both are capable of filling their roles with both the charisma and the humour that these kinds of movies require, and they have good screen chemistry together.The Mask of Zorro is one of my favourite swashbuckling films. It keeps you entertained from start to finish and is filled with enough content to allow you to see it over and over again. Definitely worth a watch for all fans of adventure and fun.
