    This movie is phenomenal and definitely one of the most underrated movies of all-time. The plot is great, everything flows wonderfully from scene to scene and it gives you that feel of a real authentic movie. The action is fantastic as well, I mean who doesn't love sword-fighting especially when its done this good.

    Right from its grand and bombastic opening logos, you get the distinct feeling when starting "The Mask of Zorro" that you're in for a ride and considering this is an action picture from Martin Campbell, it doesn't disappoint. This is a highly entertaining and well-made movie with a script and characters as clean and beautiful as the direction and practical effects.

    Fueled with slick dialogue and a script that benefits greatly from the charismatic leads of Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins, The Mask of Zorro is a spectacular swashbuckling tale with an endless knack to entertain.

    The Mask of Zorro will be a great classic someday. The Zorro films have always been inspiring and original, and that's what makes them special and unique. This film, like a great scotch, will get better with age.

    The film is a display of traditional movie craftsmanship, especially at the level of the screenplay, which respects the characters and story and doesn't simply use them for dialogue breaks between action sequences.
  2. Spectacular, fast, never boring. But it's also one of the more disappointing movies I've seen recently.
  3. Proudly old-fashioned in every way except the often excessive violence that director Martin Campbell splashes across the screen.
