The Mask of Zorro is one of those rare instances where everything just falls into place,

Simplistic but sprawling action film...

This is the best movie version of Zorro to date, and High-Definition makes it that much more exciting.

The Mask of Zorro stands as a pointed riposte to those who say they don't make 'em like that anymore.

Crisp and competent and often witty, but it only does what it's supposed to do; it's never quite inspired or exhilarating...

Directed with snap and panache by Martin Campbell, Mask of Zorro gives audiences a pair of dashing whippersnappers for the price of one.

A surprisingly good example of Hollywood's craftsmanship.

It's as if Jackie Chan were channeling the spirit of Errol Flynn.
