I was looking forward to this movie for months and personally I loved it. I laughed and cheered throughout the movie. If you want a Zorro adventure/action flick you will get it. Catharine Zeta-Jones role is enhanced and she gets to be more than a pretty face. I loved Elena's role as Zorro's partner as well as wife. The mini-me Zorro son was fine with me also and got lots of laughs from the audience. Good villains and great scenery from San Luis Potosi in Mexico. Good stunts especially with the horse. While some of the plot may seem unbelievable you must suspend belief and just sit <more>
back for a good time. The audience applauded at the end. Nice music too!
The Legend of Zorro is as perfect as a sequel can possibly be. Well-balanced in action and humor, it brought back everything I loved about the first one in spades. Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones return to their characters in top form, with a storyline that maintains the screw-tightening suspense that a good cliffhanger should offer. Visually, the film is beautiful. The producers revisited the Mexican locales where Mask of Zorro was shot, giving its successor a fresh and vibrant palette of continuity. The stunt and action sequences are framed with thrilling cinematography that had <more>
me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Finally, James Horner's phenomenal score kept the fire burning, and left me on an adrenaline high as the closing credits rolled. Zorro rides again!
I remember "The Mask of Zorro" being the most fun I had at the movies in a while. While other movies were textbook shoot-em-ups, this one had style, charm, humor, action and wonderful music. Here it is 7 years later, and not only is "Legend of Zorro" as good as the first, it is better.I had a lot of trouble understanding how all these mainstream reviewers callously slammed this movie, with Stephen Hunter of the Washington Post saying of the first one "nobody connected with this film -- including Zeta-Jones, Antonio Banderas and director Martin Campbell" and <more>
mentions how this sequel was more of the same. I even heard one reviewer mention how this one lacked the fun of the original. Apparently I'm living in a VASTLY different universe than they are. Either that, or these folks think "fun" means translating story directly out of a history book."Legend of Zorro" is not supposed to be the pinnacle of plausibility, but sets out to be a stylish, pulpy, witty action movie in homage to the days of yore. In this respect, it accomplishes its mission with flying colors! It has been a while where I have walked out of a theater just glowing with excitement over what I have just seen. The actors/director "didn't connect" ?? Every scene had heart, feeling, and in other cases excitement and humor without being stupidly corny. Every scene looked as if it had been given careful attention in every element.It is very difficult to pull off a movie that balances strong humor and action, while still maintaining any sense of heart. Every level of story woven together worked very well. Nothing was too campy or cheesy. Yes, some of it was over-the-top, but nothing exceeded the genre of what it was supposed to be. Antonio Banderas not only has terrific screen presence, but has a strong comic presence as well. The creativity with the jokes and action never quit over the film's 2 hours and 20 minutes.While "Mask" was PG-13, "Legend" is PG, but don't let that fool you into thinking it is tame. This movie is just as violent and lively as the first one, and perhaps a shade darker. The relationship issues between the 3 main characters are common enough that any age understands them, but realistic enough that adults will relate on this level it's a great "rough around the edges" family film . Make no mistake, this was a hard PG, which I enjoyed since I didn't want to see any letting-up with the plot or action. "Legend" is a crowd pleaser in many many respects, and has that same charm as the last Zorro, if not more. I was almost glad the reviews were generally bad, since that inexplicable cynicism lowered my expectations only to have them greatly surpassed by the end of the movie. I can understand this movie not being everyone's cup of tea. But what has happened to American audiences where they can't let down their guards and enjoy the same charm that first made movies the special thing that they are! I guess you'd have to read these cynical reviews to find out. Folks this isn't trying to be "Citizen Kane," it's trying to be Zorro! If people can't appreciate that without criticizing it, they should stick to more serious films.I say this realistically - that "Legend of Zorro" was at least as much fun as any time I've had at the movies! Few films have successfully pulled off the old-fashioned charm that these 2 Zorro films have. Martin Campbell very much knows what he is doing with this genre, and I hope he will do good things with "Casino Royale."
I saw the movie mostly because it was getting terrible reviews in the papers. usually when paid critics give movies bad reviews, it means they're pretty good.I was right. The acting was excellent in this movie. Perhaps even better than in the first. The action kept the movie going, the story was interesting, comedy kept things light, the violence wasn't gratuitous, the swearing was minimal and tame at best, and the sexual gratuity was non-existent Which proves that if you need gratuitous sex/violence and foul language, its only because you need to use it to hide all the stuff your <more>
movie lacks- like plot, acting ability, and good directing. but this movie had excellent acting, a good storyline and lots of action to fall back on. It didn't need any of that "Shock value" crap a lot of movies need to hide behind. So I enjoyed it very much. It kept my attention through the entire length of the film.I'm not saying this movie isn't without its faults. There were some scenes that just kind of dragged on a bit, but for the most part, those complaints are extremely minor. I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves action, romance and good laughs.Don't listen to the "paid" critics who have been giving this movie poor reviews. Three of the movies they raved about this year.... I fell asleep at, and others in the same theater walked out on. Shows how much they know.See this movie. Was worth the money!!
I am a mom of 5 children, so when I get a night out to see a movie I don't want to see a dud. When It is a date with your husband it is even tougher. It can't be too much of a chic flick and I don't want to see something too violent. It isn't easy to find a movie with some action Dad some romance Mom and some comedy both . This movie did it. Now I am not saying it should get some academy award but I sure wish there were more movies like this. It was suspenseful without being gory. It was romantic and sexy without the sex women love that . The addition of the child added <more>
a parent component that we liked. It really could be considered as a family movie for older children. I can't specifically recall any profanity that doesn't mean there wasn't .This movie was definitely not a waste of a babysitter. It was also nice and long for those of us with a longer attention span who want a more developed plot. The story was interesting and entertaining and funny if you catch it .
There are Other Battles for Zorro to fight!! This is one of them!!! (by Anaksunamen)
I really enjoyed this movie, it was funnier than the first one and more action, I really loved seeing Antonio Banderas and Cathrine Zeta-Jones as Zorro and Elena again. They are such beloved characters, The Story was not meant to be finished in the first one. De la Vega Anthony Hopkins said that himself. This is the continuation of the Story, so what if it is a little lighter than the first one, the first one was meant to be more epic, This one could not have been made better. I liked the action, the humor, and I loved the chemistry between Antonio and Cathirine, and I LOVED the fact that <more>
Elena got to kick some more butt this time around!! The Boy rocked!!! They took what could have been a disastrous component and made it work seamlessly. I loved the kid!! and of course he would be like Zorro! He inherited the genes after all from his mother, and his grandfather! It makes sense!! That kid is a really good actor. I can't wait to have a marathon when it comes out on DVD and watch both films back to back!! Hurrah for the Legend Of Zorro!!!!!!
If you don't like Saturday morning cartoons, children's adventure movies, and silly fun, then don't bother seeing this film. Otherwise, you'll have a good time. The filmmakers take major liberties with history, human behavior, and the laws of physics, but it really doesn't matter. They're not going for realism. They wanted to make a flamboyant PG-rated kids' movie and succeeded. The characters all behave pretty much the way they do in kids' movies, and the cast is obviously having far too much fun.Adults expecting a grown-up swashbuckler will be disappointed, <more>
Decent follow up is at least old-school cool (by DocRedfield)
As a more than passing fan of the Zorro movies that span the decades, I had been waiting since 1998 for a sequel to Martin Campbell's 'Mask of Zorro.' That movie took much though not everything of the best of the various Zorro films, serials, and series and then stole from other sources such as Dumas 'Monte Cristo', etc to concoct a sexy, swashbuckling action adventure that had great pacing and strengths, with high production values and actors. Mr. Campbell and those high standards at last return to the story begun, and we now follow our heroes and their son as <more>
California fights to join a struggling Union. Zorro's character is not quite so impulsive and cool as he once was, but simply comfortable and ultra-capable, while his wife Elena complains that the man behind the mask knows not who their son is growing up to be. None of these character 'upgrades' felt wrong to me; it was natural extensions of them from the first film, despite how adventurous Elena claims to still be and for the most part isn't , but it does make the first act of this movie a bit tiresome after the initial awesome action sequence. This time, though, as the story and its many plot-points begin to move, the writers borrow heavily from Hitchcock to keep things interesting. It doesn't always work, as there's a lot going on but never QUITE coming perfectly, cohesively together, but ultimately it makes sense and spins a good yarn for the fighting to take over. Meanwhile the stunt coordinators take what has already been done in the best Zorro flicks and then go wild with it, giving us stunts and action of old-school-cool caliber, such as stage-coaches, leaps and horses jumping on to explosive-laden locomotives. Unfortunately there is not quite enough action, and while I do like the over-all story - with its subtle bits of murk and dirty grays underneath the battle of white and black hats - it doesn't actually pace perfectly, giving us bickering Vega family exploits and Zorro failures for a rather large portion of the picture. The sword fights are fewer and more far-between than I would have liked, sometimes degrading to fisticuffs instead of proper dicing, but then the explosions almost make up for it all. The humor is a bit silly, provided mostly by the horse !! and the sometimes-annoying kid, but the audience ate it up. The villains are good, if never entirely fleshed out, and the themes are handled well. It's the lag caused by the idea which I never understood that 'once a couple gets together they're not interesting anymore' that slows things. Regardless of my small issues, the movie DOES deliver as a Zorro film, with a good ending, for certain and while it doesn't completely live up to its predecessor, it is a worthy sequel - just not entirely the direction I would have gone.
Formulaic, but reminiscent of old style westerns -- with a Latino cast (by ms_jade_li)
I liked the film.You aren't going to get a more aesthetic movie than this: the actors wow, Antonio and Catherine Zeta both in the same movie -- Anjelina & Brad, eat your hearts out -- no contest! , the costumes, the lighting, the villa and townscapes, and the sheer beauty of the location, day and night.Antonio looks a little more "mature" than I've seen him in awhile, but he's no less smoldering and charming on the screen. He's a natural for playing Zorro. The athleticism of Zorro is pretty impressive too. Lots of leaps, flips, and creative uses of his <more>
whip.Catherine-Zeta is breathtakingly beautiful, as always. Those eyes of hers... It's enjoyable to see her in a maternal role. I love her costumes! It's good to see her multi-tasking.Their son, Joaquim, is outstanding. Child stars usually make me gag, but this kid has genuine talent, and the person s filming and editing have admirably captured it.The main bad guy the one with the mansion is intriguing as well. Not sure who he is but I hope to see more of him.The other villain is, plain and simple, unidimensional, which is typical of adventure type movies. No surprises there. The way he meets his end is creative.The Horse. Wow.The political framework of the plot worked well for the movie.If you're looking for a movie that entertains while being pleasing to the eye, check it out.
