"THIS IS ONE CROWD-PLEASER THAT ACTUALLY PLEASES!"
-David Ansen, NEWSWEEK
A swashbuckling tale set against Mexico's fight for independence from Spain, THE MASK OF ZORRO stars Antonio Banderas, and Academy Award winners Anthony Hopkins (1991 Best Actor in a Leading Role, The Silence Of The Lambs) and Catherine Zeta-Jones (2002 Best Actess in a Supporting Role, Chicago). This Deluxe Edition DVD features a sneak peak at the exciting sequel, THE LEGEND OF ZORRO, an entire scene from the new film, plus loads of bonus content.
After twenty years, the legendary Zorro (Hopkins) escapes from prison to avenge the murder of his wife and kidnapping of his daughter Elena (Zeta Jones) at the hand of his enemy, Don Rafael Montero. But first he must transform a cocky young thief (Banderas) into the fearless hero and champion of the people he once was. With two Zorros on the scene, it's twice the adventure and twice the fun.
A really fun, over-the-top action/adventure flick starring Antonio Banderas in a role he was born to play.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
