What a find! I had no idea Langella did a stint as the masked avenger of justice, Zorro! I have never really paid too much attention to the Zorro mythos or anything like that - admittedly, I've never seen the Antonio Banderas films - except for the Disney produced black-and-white TV series here and there, and of course the relation to the Batman character. What I think I loved the most was Langella's brilliant performance as both Don Diego and Zorro...the differentiation he made between the two characters. The "dandy" he is as Diego is truly a character that you would absolutely never believe was Zorro. Zorro himself is so incredibly dashing, cunning, and unbelievably sharp. The best part is that Langella employed a nice little technique where he changed his voice between the two characters - a trait common in the Batman (Kevin Conroy being the first actor to do that very noticeably). I loved it. I loved all the performances, really! The acting was good, which was surprising. But even better was the writing. I really have to hand it to the writers of the teleplay and screenplay, they have "rapier wit" down to a metaphoric perfection. I guess in this case, it'd be a "cutlass wit". Ha. Anyway, the dialog in this movie is genius, and very well done. I could only hope to one day achieve this level of comedic genius (of course, Langella's performance had a heavy hand in that as well). An excellent Zorro film that I thoroughly enjoyed, without having any expectations at all.
