    Traditional slick button-pusher of a swashbuckler with star power and all the other Hollywood devices both old and new. Although it touches on an estranged child and parent subconsciously seeking to resolve their lost association, as a matinee serial gone full length it's not really convincing as about anything deep or important. The nameless faceless peons Zorro champions remain Traditional slick button-pusher of a swashbuckler with star power and all the other Hollywood devices both old and new.

The nameless faceless peons Zorro champions remain anonymous and expendable. OK for what it attempts to do, which is nothing new or memorable. Expand

    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.
