The Mask of Zorro Reviews

  • Nov 01, 2020

    This classic action movie set in the 19th Century was really good. Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Stuart Wilson, and the rest of the cast did a fantastic job in this movie. The plot to the movie was action-packed, entertaining, and thrilling. It's an excellent adaptation of one of the greatest heroes in literature. If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out sometime. It's a definite must see.

    Exciting, thrilling, romantic. It's all you'd want from a swashbuckling movie.

    Great swashbuckling movie, with Strong performances from Sir Anthony Hopkins (who plays the original Zorro, now an old man obsessed with revenge against the villian who ruined his life) Antonio Banderas (the young man who becomes the new Zorro to avenge his brother’s death) and Catherine Zeta Jones (the love interest who is now caught in the middle)

    Didnt mind it to begin with but at nearly 2 and a half hours the length of the film exposed a thin story...would have been much better with 45mins shaved off

    Everyone does a great job but the resolution is predictable and extremely unsatisfying.

    4 bags, some swashbuckling, 2 Zorro masks, and some Popcorn connections to other great movies such as the Silence of the Lambs, Thor, Desperado, the Count of Monte Cristo, and countless others. Anthony Hopkins is at a career-best here because the tragic nature of his character is so close to home (he's a man filled with regret and booze, estranged from his daughter). It's a role that he was born to play, but one bag has to get docked because of all the make-up issues, even though Hopkins' make-up seems to rub off by the final fight. But, this is forgivable if you just realize he was really just Odin during some lost years when he was on vacay from Asgard. The part where Captain Love presents some dismembered body parts in jars reminded me of the Silence of the Lambs. It's too bad they couldn't have gotten Ted Levine (Buffalo Bill) to play him. Despite this similarity to the Hannibal movies, the eponymous Zorro mask worn by Hopkins is not the face of another person, though he is perhaps taking some cultural liberties with his makeup. If you are a fan of the Puss N Boots character from Shrek, this classic is not to be missed, or if you're looking for another Popcorn classic on the way to 531.

    A good movie with good action, a good cast, and a good story. I’d recommend it.

    Fun, exciting, and often cheesy action-adventure. Mask of Zorro feels like an old school action movie, over the top evil villains, handsome hero, beautiful love interest, lighthearted action. Banderas, Hopkins, and Jones are all great here. As a 12 year old I thought this movie was one of the best of all time, though I don't hold it quite as highly now but I can see why I enjoyed it so much. It's great (mostly) family friendly action.

    A joyfully entertaining and romantically crafted swashbuckler that rises on the strengths of Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas in equal measure.
