From Amazon.co.uk

A lusty and rousing adventure, this calls to mind those glorious costume dramas produced so capably by the old Hollywood studio system--hardly surprising, in that its title character, a de facto Robin Hood in Old California, provided starring vehicles for Douglas Fairbanks and Tyrone Power, the 50s TV hit, and dozens of serials and features. Zorro, a pop-fiction creation invented by Johnston McCulley in 1918, is given new blood in this fast-moving and engaging version, which actually works as a sequel to the story line in the Fairbanks-Power saga, The Mark of Zorro. A self-assured Anthony Hopkins is Don Diego de la Vega, a Mexican freedom fighter captured and imprisoned just as Spain concedes California to Santa Ana. Twenty years later, he escapes from prison to face down his mortal enemy, a land grabbing governor played with slimy spitefulness by Stuart Wilson. Too old to save the local peasants on his own, he trains bandito Antonio Banderas to take his place. Much swashbuckling ensues as Banderas woos Catherine Zeta-Jones, becomes a better human being and saves the disenfranchised rabble. Director Martin Campbell wisely instils a measure of frivolity into the deftly choreographed action sequences, while letting a serious tone creep in when appropriate. This covers much ground under the banner of romantic-action-adventure and it does so most excellently. --Rochelle O'Gorman

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely amazing!!!!! 13 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I thought that this movie was absolutely amazing.I am a huge fan of Antonio Banderas and have seen all his movies but this one I find I can watch over and over and over again.Everytime I do watch I see something different to the last time I watched it.I also was pleased that Catherine Zeta Jones was in it as she is my favourite actress.She played her part very well and coming from a spanish background she really looked the part.As I have said, I really loved this movie and watch all the time.If someone was to ask my opinion on a movie to watch I would definately say "The Mask of Zorro".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment from a magnificent cast 25 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This DVD is in letter-box format i.e. it doesn't fill the full screen of a typical TV. But when you come to get a widescreen TV in a few year's time, you may be glad to have this film to slap on the DVD player. Zorro is a swashbuckling adventure with high production values and a strong ensemble cast. Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas make a great master-and-pupil team while Catherine Zeta Jones is simply stunning. If you're into movies at all, there's a fascinating commentary on every minute of the flick from director Martin Campbell. When you listen to his remarks, you really come to appreciate how much work went into making Zorro, which was shot on location in Mexico. There's also a good documentary about where the Zorro character came from and how the film got to be made. So a good movie and a good example of how the extra bits really give DVD the edge over VHS tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hopkins is sublime 17 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Being an avid Anthony Hopkins fan I surprised myself at the long wait I gave myself to watch this. I saw it last night and I thought Hopkins performance was sublime. Not a part I would associate with AH but one in which he pulls it off superbly. Not only that but he looks the part. An excellent film... buy it!

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2010 BLU RAY/DVD COMBO ***

Back in the day I had a Superbit DVD of this beautifully filmed and hugely entertaining hero-of-the-people movie - and along with "Vertical Limit" - it was a virtual benchmark for how good the DVD format could look. The Superbit Series to DVDs were like gold audiophiles to CDs - dedicated to giving you the best quality possible.

So it's not surprising to find that Martin Campbell's skilfully filmed "The Mask Of Zorro" on BLU RAY is a proper 'looker' - gorgeous - and then some.

Right from the opening shot of canvas being slit by the two young boys hoping to get a glimpse of Zorro (Anthony Hopkins) - through to the confessional scenes between Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones where she explains her passion for a bandit (dialogue above) - indoors or out - "The Mask Of Zorro" is a treat to look at. You see their costumes - the sweating skin - the heat of the desert and the dust of the towns - even the deliberate sepia-tint that surrounds the face of Zeta-Jones at times - it's all cleanly rendered.

And while the film's natural default is 2.40:1 (which means bars at the top and the bottom of the screen) - even switched to FULL SCREEN - there's only minor stretching and very little loss of definition. The sound too is magnificent - horses hooves, blades clashing, gunpowder shots, wood splintering, buildings exploding - all brought to the fore by a storming 5.1 mix.

4.0 out of 5 stars Masked Marauder 29 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
This is one of those real feel-good movies - a real swashbuckler for those who like their swashes buckled. It's one of those ones you can watch over and over again too - I've seen it on TV, on a coach journey across Europe, through the window in TV shops...in other words, it's no deep, thoughtful cinematic classic, but it's a good way of killing an hour or two snuggled up with the person you love most.
Hopkins and Wilson are just made for each other - and so are Banderas and Zeta-Jones. The film maintains its pace admirably, and the pyrotechnics and final fight scenes are the best I've seen in a long time, eclipsing most other similar movies I've seen. The plot keeps you hanging on in there, and the subtle and rather tragic ending comes almost as no surprise - it's one for the "bright new hope" school of thought.
Definitely a must-rent, if only because it pops up so frequently that there is no need to buy the DVD - unless you need constant reassurance that good can triumph over evil.

4.0 out of 5 stars Persiflage, pulchritude and parody 3 Aug 2004
By Stephen A. Haines HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD
The Zorro legend once loomed large in California. This film, whatever its flaws, might resurrect that romantic myth. The film has given us a fresh, stimulating picture of Zorro as a man instead of a demigod. Updating the story to present an elderly Zorro in the position of training his replacement gives it a solid postmodern footing. Choosing Anthony Hopkins for the role, however, was a superb inspiration. Banderas, although lacking "charm", according to Hopkins, manages to act as both foil and clone to the older Zorro. To keep our attention, the beauty of Catherine Zeta Jones adds grace to a story of intrigue and much violence.
Hopkins rises to the role of ageing hero with his usual finesse. He's lost a wife to murder and a daughter to a heartless, ambitious descendent of the conquistadores. After two decades, justice is an elusive goal. Banderas is recruited as a trainee Zorro II. His wry expressions make you wonder if he's taking the film seriously. No matter - he puts enough energy and skill into it to evoke applause for his enthusiasm. Both Zorros use the lighter side of this story to keep it lively. And there are no dull scenes in this film
Zeta Jones, too, is a good choice for Elena, Zorro's daughter raised by the "bad guy" - Don Montero. It's not important for her to say much. She uses up much energy proving she's not lounging around as a couch potato between roles. A dance scene and a fencing episode ably demonstrate her physical fitness. A confrontation mingling truth, justice and fatherhood provides a serious episode. Then there's the heavy breathing for added enticement.
When Zorro films were made in the past, violence pervaded with lots of blood and many corpses. Modern filming uses a new technique.
