The Legend of Zorro is a continuation of the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro which is probably the best Zorro film ever made I say probably because I haven’t seen all of the 13 Zorro films. One thing that can’t be denied is that the character of Zorro is a silver screen favorite. The Mask of Zorro features an older Zorro Anthony Hopkins intensely training a young thieve Antonio Banderes molding him into the dashing and heroic Zorro that he is in this film. The new Zorro marries Elena played by the gorgeous Catherine Zeta-Jones. In this movie she is turned into a nagging wife and in so doing loses all of her spark and energy. She was once a feisty woman who could wield a sword just as good as Zorro himself. Elena now complains about Zorro coming home late and she asks him to stop his crusade to help the Mexican people. This aspect of the movie results cliché dialogue and an all too common topic for the relationship between husband and wife on screen.
