LEGEND OF ZORROWith a splash of religiosity
THE LEGEND OF ZORRO

The Legend of Zorro melds the best of the older Zorro serial television series and the equally revered Wild, Wild West, with a splash of religiosity for good measure.

LEGEND OF ZORROJUST A POPCORN MOVIE?
THE LEGEND OF ZORRO

Truth is, I think The Legend of Zorro is intended for nothing more than a popcorn flick and a good time. It provided that. I enjoyed myself, but felt that it could have been so much more...

SYNOPSIS
enlargeIn Columbia Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment’s exciting new action adventure The Legend of Zorro, the swashbuckling masked hero embarks on the most dangerous mission of his life. Multiple Golden Globe Award nominee Antonio Banderas and Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones reunite with director Martin Campbell in this action-packed escapade set in the California territory in the critical days preceding statehood.

The Legend of Zorro is set several years after the conclusion of the previous adventure. Alejandro (Banderas) and Elena (Zeta-Jones) are married and have a 10-year-old son, Joaquin (Adrian Alonso). Though Alejandro continues to don the mask of Zorro to protect the poor and oppressed residents of the California territory from the greed of the overlords, he is torn between his duty and his desire for a more normal life. Now, he must face that conflict again head-on when plans for California to become the 31st state are undermined by a nefarious plot by several prominent land barons and
businessmen.

In his valiant attempt to foil their plans, Zorro runs headlong into a crisis that threatens his life and the safety of his family.

The year is 1850. The territory of California is seeking to become the 31st state of the union, but certain unscrupulous individuals, members of a mysterious medieval organization, are determined to prevent this event from transpiring.

Once again the masked hero, Zorro, must come to the aid of the people of California so they can become citizens of the United States of America.

At the same time, a corrupt robber baron McGivens (NICK CHINLUND) is intimidating the law-abiding residents of California, seizing their land and threatening their livelihoods.

Again, only Zorro can stop him.

Don Alejandro de la Vega (ANTONIO BANDERAS), who inherited the mask of Zorro, is now married to Elena (CATHERINE ZETA-JONES). They have a 10-year-old son, Joaquin (ADRIAN ALONSO). The boy misses his father, who is rarely at home. And when he is, Joaquin finds himself wishing that Don Alejandro behaved more like his idealized hero Zorro -- having no enlargeidea that the two men are the same person.

Meanwhile, Elena forces Alejandro to choose between his family and his crusading alter ego. When an unexpected crisis forces Alejandro to once again don the mask of Zorro, Elena feels betrayed and kicks him out of the house. Soon after, she serves him with divorce papers.

When a former schoolmate of Elena’s, the French aristocrat Armand (RUFUS SEWELL), moves to California to start a winery, he is thrilled to discover that Elena has separated from her husband. He immediately begins to woo her, while at the same time attending to his duties as the head of the Knights Of Aragon, a secret ancient fraternity.

Don Alejandro now finds himself caught in a dilemma between his obligation to serve the oppressed and threatened people of California and his responsibilities as husband and father.
