    The picture is almost shamefully entertaining, bold and self-effacing at once: Its intelligence reveals itself as a devilish gleam, not a pompous layer of shellac. Why can't more Hollywood movies be like this one?
  2. Banderas uses all his old wiles in this well-oiled, businesslike, quite clangingly violent sequel to "The Mask of Zorro."
  3. You must cast aside all rules of our space-time continuum to appreciate a fantasy like this one, though even then you might consider 130 minutes to be too much of a good thing.
  4. 50
    It's a workmanlike adventure yarn, intermittently reverent to the canon but not very inspired, and it must be said that Banderas is starting to show signs of wear.
  5. 50
    This unnecessary and overlong sequel fails to recapture its predecessor's zing.
  6. 42
    Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are back, as is director Martin Campbell, but the result has the all-too-common feel of an expired equine redundantly abused.
  7. 20
    There are precious few things for a Zorro fan – or a film fan, for that matter – not to loathe about The Legend of Zorro.

    not an excellent sequel, but its perfect and it has the presence of the return of Antonio Banderas and Catherine-Zeta Jones.

    The Legend doesn't compare to The Mask, but is still a great Zorro movie that takes this great story beyond boundaries. What it lacks in acting and writing, it makes up for in story. Expand

    The Legend of Zorro isn't very Legendary.
    While Zorro is surrounded by a well rounded cast and a very intriguing story; the directors turn it
    into a boring monstrosity of what it was intended to be. Expand
