The Legend of Zorro Reviews
Why make Elena (CZJ) a shrewish wife? Why have a cartoonish villain out to spoil the party and rule the world? It's all too formulaic and thus disappointing. I suppose other action oriented series like Indiana Jones or Back to the Future could be likewise criticized, but they never failed to entertain. One thing a Zorro movie should never be is boring; this one comes close.
There are plenty of funny scenes with the family (including the son) of the swashbuckling hero. And awesome action sequences of what Zorro comes to fight and rescue against the new villains - the best sequence is the train at the end.
